If you’re in the market for the best sports cars of 2020, what should you be looking at? What models are worth your time? Which should be left in the dust?
You’re lucky: 2020 is bringing incredible sports cars galore. Read on and discover which of these cars are gonna set your world alight and drain your wallet this year.
It may be the only American car on this list, but don’t let that bother you. The 2020 Ford Mustang is an absolute belter of a car. This car can go toe-to-toe (tread-to-tread?) with a BMW M4 and come out on top.
The V8 engine can push to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, motoring on to a top speed of 155 mph. It’s unapologetically a muscle car too: it looks and sounds the part. Step inside and you won’t find the frills of a supercar. You get power, a little bit of tech, and a seat. In 2020 sports cars, this is a rarity and a pleasant one at that.
Mazda Miata MX-5
I talk a lot about the Miata MX-5, but why wouldn’t I? If you’re looking to get in on the ground floor of performance motoring, the MX-5 and the Fiat 124 represent the best possible way in. They’re not going to break your neck with 200 mph displays of power, but who cares?
They capture the spirit of performance motoring. Blaze down a highway in the MX-5 with the top down and you’ll feel like you’re going at the speed of sound. They’re cheap to buy, cheap to run, and a whole pile of fun. If you’ve not jumped on the MX-5 train yet, make 2020 the year.
The Nissan GT-R excels at what it does. What it does is waggle its performance in the faces of supercars, while mocking their high price points. The GT-R starts at $112,000. That’s a lot of money. It’s not Ferrari money, though.
So, what do you get for your six figures? You get a 0-60 time of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph. You get a luxurious interior. You get the latest technology.
You don’t get a car that pretends to be anything but a mad car for motoring lunatics. We know that we fit that bill pretty well. Do you?
Porsche 911 Carrera
The Porsche 911 is a legendary series of cars for a great reason. They’re not the most expensive, but they offer some of the best handling you will ever get. They’re powerful too, despite their small engine sizes.
The Carrera takes everything that’s great about the 911 and expands on it. This 992 model comes with the Turbo S engine, rated at 444 horsepower and the PDX transmission. The 911 is the epitome of sophisticated speed. If you’re looking for one of the hottest sports cars of 2020, you’ve found it.
Looking for a Porsche-alike with a little more oomph? Then you need to buy a McLaren 570S. Blasting to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and with a top speed of 204 mph, the 570S is incredible fun. It handles like a dream too and can make mincemeat out of any corner you could throw it around.
You don’t get the mad chassis control system that you’d find on the 720S, but you do get some spectacular damping. The grip, the power, the thrills: they all come together on the 570S. This rowdy little monster will have you smiling from ear to ear.
