9 Best New Sports Car Worth To Look For In 2020
1. Alpine A110
Reasons the Alpine gets so much praise from the public not because it’s faster or more capable than any of its peers. In fact, it is one of the slowest cars here.
However, the Alpine A110 is the best new sports car you can purchase today because it disrupts the ordinary trend today on the market of being powerful, heavier and over-tyred coupes. It gives you just what you need, and no more. As a consequence, it’s light and joyous to drive around. And in case, if you really want to have more power, there’s the A110 S, which adds more power without completely spoiling the recipe of your fast driving taste.
2. Porsche 911 Carrera
Some says with the Porsche 911 Carrera growing bigger, heavier and more refined, it is now straying into grand tourer territory. But if one has a chance of driving it around, they will soon discover it is still a pure sports car. Not only that, it’s also the one that can dice with supercars quite nicely.
A change to turbo power for the 991.2 generation may irritate some purists, but Porsche has made the 3-litre engine far more superior for the 992. The unit is inconceivably responsive for the turbo engine, and it sounds splendid in its upper speeds.
Whichever versions of the 992 you buy, you’re unlikely to be disappointed. If it were us, we’d go for a rear-drive Carrera 2 in coupe form. The power of the Carrera S is tempting…
3. Mazda MX-5
We were once big fans of the ND MX-5 when Mazda facelifted it in 2018. What the Japanese company did to the car at the time went beyond the usual nip and tuck: new pistons, con-rods, valve springs and more raised for the rev limit to 7500rpm, which is 700rpm higher than before, and the power from 168 to 181bhp.
4. Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman
Although the price is high, and that’s over £64,000, which is a similar price to the original GT4. However, you will find the engine to be plenty of punchy, and the chassis that the engine lives in is most likely the best out there. Aside from the Alpine, nothing in this corner of the market comes close to the polish of the 718’s dynamics Boxster/Cayman.
5. Aston Martin Vantage
The new Aston Martin Vantage may be priced more like a supercar, but since it is supposed to be a Porsche 911’s rival, it makes the cut as a sports car.
There are plenty to like on this car. It’s probably the best-looking modern Aston Martin, and it’s a riot to drive on both on road and track.
6. Toyota GT86
The Toyota GT86 is probably the most focused mainstream sports car on the market right now. It is light, has substantial amount of power, looks good and isn’t expensive.
However, this kind of car, which is ideal for enthusiasts, isn't good for huge sales success - the GT86 has always been a low seller for Toyota, despite a succession of limited edition models.
7. Toyota GR Supra
The GR Supra is not quite the car that we had hoped it would be. The ‘A90’ is heavy, engine sounds uninspiring, and it’s far more of a BMW than initially expected.
But it’s a great-looking, fast, brand new circa – worth at value £50k for a sports car. There is always a nagging feeling that the fourth-generation Supra might represent a missed opportunity, but we’re glad finally it’s here, and there’s no questioning in its capability, nor its penchant for drifty tomfoolery.
8. Jaguar F-Type
In the past, we’ve addressed whether or not the Jaguar F-Type can be portrayed as a sports car: it is too heavy and not quite as sharp to drive as we had initially hoped.
But the true ingredients are all there, it has the look of business’ style, the supercharged V8 versions, which make noise that can only be described as ‘pure filth’.
9. Lotus Evora
Looking soft, Evora Lotus, is probably the best fit sports car bill. It’s the most engaging car on this list, and one of the most exciting. It is incredibly dated. The Evora has been being designed around in one form or another for over 10 years, and particularly on the inside, that shows. Some of the fancy models are sold for up to six-figure sums.
As such, the Evora is an extremely nice choice. But if you rate driver's companion above everything else, this is the sports car that you should not miss.
