2022 sports car They come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny kei cars with 1.0-liter inline 3-cylinder engines to giant American muscle cars with 6.2-liter supercharged V8s that can restart a dying planet. In between is his Toyota Supra, one of the best cars on sale today.
The Supra is now in its fifth generation and borrows most of its components from BMW rather than sporting a Toyota engine, platform or gearbox.This is not necessarily a bad thing as the engine is great B58 Turbocharged straight 6 – worthy successor to a legend 2JZ-GTEAdmittedly, the engine isn’t even close to being perfect yet. 2JZ In terms of power, though, it works well.Toyota recently added a manual gearbox A90 The Supra is finally finished as it should be. Sure, it has a low roof, poor visibility, and ergonomics that fall short of companies like Toyota, but the styling and pedigree make this model very attractive.
The Supra may be one of the best sports cars on sale today, but it has some issues that rivals use to their advantage. Here are 10 sports cars you should consider replacing the Toyota Supra.
10/10 Alpine A110
The Alpine A110 is a legendary French sports car that competed in the Classic Rally Championship in the 1960s and 1970s. For 2017 Alpine is back with a modern version that stays true to the original in lightness and handling.
The A110 has a 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four borrowed from the Renault Megane RS and produces 280 horsepower. Like the original, the engine is behind the driver and powers the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It may be far less powerful than the Supra, but it’s definitely competitive.
9/10 BMW M2
The new BMW M2 was recently unveiled and is the subject of great controversy. The regular 2 Series already has “interesting” styling, and the M2 has the square nature of a widebody kit on top. One thing that cannot be ignored is the drivetrain.
M3 has the same features S58 Like the M3 and M4, it’s a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged inline-six engine, but slightly detuned to 450 hp instead of the full 503 engine. The M2 is manual as standard and automatic as an option.
8/10 Porsche 718 Cayman
The Porsche 718 Cayman is a masterpiece of German engineering. It used to be true that those who couldn’t afford a 911 would settle for a Cayman, but this is no longer the case. The 718 model is a true sports car in its own right.
The Cayman has a turbocharged Flat 4 in the lower trim, while all models above the GTS have a glorious naturally aspirated 4.0-liter Flat 6 making 400 horsepower. A 6-speed manual is standard on all models, and an 8-speed PDK is optional.
7/10 Dodge Challenger R/T/Scat Pack
The Dodge Challenger is the last true American muscle car still on the market because it’s the only car that sucks when cornering. It’s also the only muscle car on sale with all-wheel drive in the lower trim.
The top R/T and Scat Pack models are the models to use when looking for replacements for the Toyota Supra. The 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V8 engines develop 372 and 485 horsepower respectively. This is enough to cause enough burnout to embarrass the Mustang.
6/10 Ford Mustang GT
Mustang is the current S550 The Mustang will be replaced by an all-new model next year. Until then, engine options include his 2.3-liter turbocharger. eco boost Inline 4, 5.0 liter coyote V8 and 5.2 liter supercharger predator V8.
The mid-range Mustang GT produces 440 horsepower and is mated to a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s a great cruiser and getting it in the manual makes for a spectacularly fun sports car.
5/10 Chevrolet Camaro 3LT/SS
The Chevrolet Camaro is the last of America’s “Big 3” muscle cars. Unlike Mustang and Challenger, Camaro is available with his 4, 6 and 8 cylinder engines. His 2.0-liter turbo on the base has 255 hp, the 3.6-liter has 335 hp, and the larger he has 455 hp on the 6.2-liter turbo. Not to mention the 650 horsepower supercharged ZL1.
Both the mid-range V6 3LT and V8 SS are good in terms of power, but what sets the Camaro apart is its unnecessarily good handling characteristics. In tests conducted by Throttlehouse, the Camaro SS outperforms the new Nissan Z in terms of driver engagement. Very impressive.
4/10 BMW M440i
The BMW 4 Series is now in its second generation and for those who don’t have the budget to buy an M model there is an M-Lite called the M440i. The M440i is powered by his B58 straight-six engine, which is the same as most of his six-cylinder cars from BMW, and is the same one used in the Supra.
Unlike the Supra, the engine produces 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft compared to the Supra’s official 335 horsepower. The M440i is available with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, but only comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, as manuals are reserved for M models.
3/10 Chevrolet Corvette C8
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the best sports cars on the market today because it combines supercar performance with sports car pricing. The C8 starts at just over $60,000 and is powered by his 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 that makes 490 horsepower.
The mid-engined engine transfers all power to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.optional Z51 This package adds a sports exhaust, a power increase of 5 hp and 5 lb-ft, and a large front splitter and rear wing.
2/10 Lotus Emira
The Lotus Emira will be the last fossil fuel-powered vehicle to be built by the British company in the ongoing transition to electric vehicles. The Emira follows Lotus’ typical strategy of weight savings and a mid-engine layout to improve handling and driver enjoyment.
The Emira currently has a 400-horsepower 3.5-liter supercharged V6 borrowed from Toyota, but a 360-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo will be available from Mercedes-AMG at a later date. A manual transmission is standard, with an automatic as an option, with his 9-speed automatic available as the only option for the AMG engine.
1/10 Nissan Z
The Nissan Z made headlines when it was announced, but has received mixed reviews since. Some praised the performance and handling, while others were a little disappointed by the lack of new features and numb steering.
The Z is powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 used in the Infiniti Q60 Redline, delivering 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. A 6-speed manual is standard, but a Mercedes-Benz 9-speed automatic is also available. It’s the closest vehicle to the Supra, but the Supra beats it thanks to Toyota’s manual.
