Cars that impressed specialists with their performance and design before their birth are always awaited with great interest. However, this is not always justified when detecting the vehicles in question. Whether this happens now, time will tell. Despite the pandemic situation, very interesting premieres await us next year, and the automotive publication Hotcars.com has published a list of the most anticipated cars for 2021. That’s who they are.
Alfa Romeo Tonale
The Tonale was first revealed as a concept car in 2019. Scheduled to launch in 2021, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the latest Alfa Romeo, but pre-production models are well on their way to final testing.
Nissan Z Proto (400Z)
The current Nissan 370Z is almost ancient by automotive standards, an 11-year-old legacy platform, and extremely outdated technology. Many enthusiasts feared that the Z line would be discontinued, especially with the rise of SUVs and declining sales of sedans, but to everyone’s surprise, Nissan announced that the Z would live on. The Z Proto was introduced and the enthusiastic community breathed a sigh of relief.
Many car manufacturers are following the trend of resurrecting old hit models to attract attention. However, no car has generated as much interest as the Ford Bronco. Unlike the Chevrolet Blazer, another resurrected off-road legend, the Bronco is the perfect blend of modern and retro style. Bronco promises to be a serious Jeep contender for the Ocean’s off-road title.
Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86
The current BRZ and 86 are on a legacy platform and the current model year is expected to be the last before a radical redesign. A brief history lesson: The BRZ and 86 were designed as a joint venture between Subaru and Toyota to develop a new sports car for half the money. As a result, the two cars are nearly identical, save for a few brand-specific features such as the infotainment system and engine tuning. Now the two companies are doing it again and modifying cars from the ground up.
Audi E-Tron GT
The car, represented in the film by Tony Stark’s Audi e-tron GT character, is expected with great interest. Following the success of the Porsche Taycan, enthusiasts believe the e-tron GT will include many of the same systems, but in a typical Audi super-luxury package. The GT is reported to hit 100 km/h in about 3.5 seconds.
BMW entered the i3 EV market early, but aside from the incredible looks and interior, it was a largely disappointing car with very little battery life. For seven years, BMW was resting on its laurels with very little competition, but with the advent of the electric models of Audi and Porsche, the Bavarians had to step up their policy in the so-called mass electrification. The i4 promises to be BMW’s best electric car.
The self-proclaimed «Tesla killer» Lucid Air is also expected with great interest. Backed by very wealthy investors, the Air was developed by a former Tesla engineer. On paper, the Air seems to outperform the Model S everywhere, but what will happen in practice remains to be seen.
GMC Hummer Electric
GMC made a splash in the automotive sea when it announced it would bring back the Hummer. Based on the military Humvee SUV, the Hummer was a massive SUV with huge and fairly environmentally friendly engines, but as the environmental wave swept over the automotive industry very quickly, sales plummeted. They are now expected to be resurrected with an electric version.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Ford is very late with the electric car game. The manufacturer has been using electric vehicle technology for a long time, but it has not yet released a fully electric model for hybrids. Of course, it seems that catching up with Ford, they want to make a lot of noise Mach-E. The placement of their most famous nameplate, the Mustang, on an electric vehicle demonstrates their commitment to advancing technology.
Speaking of Tesla, the current king of electric cars, their fastest car is expected with a lot of interest. The Roadster is a complete redesign of the original look that made Tesla the number one electric vehicle. Also known as the first production car to be launched into space, the Roadster is said to be able to travel 620 miles, which is almost 1,000 kilometers.
