Whether you’re in the market for a new car or just looking around — and aren’t we all? — Cars Protection Plus reports below on some of the models on the way that have definitely gotten our attention and have us waiting impatiently for their release.
Don’t hesitate when booking a test drive; if recent history is any indicator these models will likely go fast in more ways than one.
Audi e-tron GT (2022)
Worried about the horsepower of electric cars? You haven’t seen the new e-tron GT. Using electric models in the rear and the front, Audi has created a great package that ranges from a whopping 469 horsepower — and up to 522 horsepower for 2.5 when you activate launch control. This one takes just under 4 seconds to go from 0 to 60.
Even that’s not fast enough for you, the RS e-tron GT goes 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds.
But back to the regular e-tron GT. On a single charge, the car is expected to have a stellar 238-mile range, and its interior made of recycled materials? That comes standard.
Starts at $99,000 for the e-tron GT; $139,000 for the RS e-tron GT.
BMW i4 M50 (2022)
It may look like a typical sport sedan, but BMW’s latest is all-electric and all-wheel drive in one hatchback package with a lot of room. It even has more power than the gas-powered M4 — 536 horsepower — and takes 3 seconds to go from 0-60.
It’s an all-weather, versatile workhorse that doesn’t skimp on style.
Starts at $65,900
Acura Integra (2023)
Yes, an Acura. And yes, an Integra. Introduced to the market way back in 1985, the Integra returns now as a sleek four-door hatchback, likely to use the Honda Civic Type R’s powerful 300-hp turbo and the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine found on the Civic Si.
The Integra Type S will up the sexiness factor, with a clear, zippy sportscar look.
Starts at $30,000 for the Integra and $40,000 for the Type S.
Aston Martin Vanquish (2024)
Add this one to your dream car list. The next Vanquish will easily compete with such big names as the Ferrari F8 Tributo.
Details are sparse on the new Vanquish, but it is known to include a new 3.0-liter V-6 hybrid that may bring it up to the 700 horsepower range. Aston Martin also says it will have a spaceframe that’s bonded aluminum. Beyond that, your dreams will have to fill in the rest.
Estimated to start at $300,000.
Cadillac Celestiq (2025)
Fancy name; fancier car. Cadillac will begin its EV line in 2023 with the Lyriq SUV, but you’ll have to wait until 2025 for the landmark Celestiq, with will have four trim levels: luxury, premium luxury, sport, and platinum.
It will have a 300-mile driving range powered by an electric drivetrain that’s an all-wheel drive, and of course, packed with a mix of luxury and technology — and a pretty big price tag. Oh, and did we mention its transparent glass roof panels and super-spacious cabin?
Estimated to start at $90,000.
