Whilst most people out there take a look at cars and see them as tools, a means to get from point A to point B, many of us see them as much more than that. In the words of Jeremy Clarkson, enthusiasts believe, without a shadow of a doubt, that “cars are living entities”. That’s where sports cars thrive, marvels of engineering designed for speed, agility, and above all else, fun.

Sports cars have only gotten better and better, particularly in the last couple of years. Manufacturers have found their groove and are developing masterpieces that truly capture that essence of fun. Whether it be builders of supercars like McLaren or Porsche, seasoned veterans like BMW or Jaguar, or heroes of the everyman like Toyota and Chevrolet, there seems to be a brilliantly crafted sports car for every kind of person.

With the end of 2023 quickly approaching, we take a look at some of the best, quickest, and most enjoyable cars on the market for the upcoming 2024 model year. These cars exude passion and heart and make all of us a little hopeful for the future of automotive enthusiasm.

10 Toyota GR86

Starting MSRP: est. $30,000

When it comes to sports cars built specifically for those on a budget, there are very few cars that come close to what Toyota and Subaru have done together. The GR86 and its mechanical twin, the Subaru BRZ, are sports cars that embody fun better than most cars on the market, and at a reasonable price.

Performance

In 2024 Toyota paid tribute to the AE86 Trueno Corolla with a special edition of the GR86. The Trueno GR86 comes with a brilliant performance package that includes features like Brembo breaks and Sachs dampers. The performance package is an optional extra across the rest of the range. Manual GR86s are also getting access to the driver-assist features that were exclusive to their automatic counterpart in 2023.

9 Toyota GR Supra

Starting MSRP: $45,540

The Supra is a sports car icon, which is why the revival of the badge caused a bit of a stir; even more so when people realized that it would share a lot of parts with the BMW Z4 and wouldn’t be purely Toyota. However, there are few examples of sports cars that represent the levels of performance that the GR Supra does, with an eager powertrain and incredibly responsive handling.

Performance

There aren’t many changes for the 2024 GR Supra, however, a new limited edition model is hitting the market. The 2024 year marks the 45th anniversary of the Supra name and with it comes a model wearing white or orange paint, matte black wheels, and a manually adjustable rear spoiler. The 2024 model also carries over the manual transmission from the 2023 year, much to the relief of many enthusiasts.

8 BMW Z4

Starting MSRP: $53,600

Have you ever thought that the Toyota Supra is great but maybe just a bit too much? Great news, the BMW Z4 is the car for you. Produced side-by-side with Toyota’s high-performance coupe, the Z4 offers similar levels of performance and handling and also comes with a convertible roof.

Performance

The BMW Z4 doesn’t make a ton of changes for the 2024 model year but that’s because the German firm changed just about everything last year. BMW has stuck to the philosophy of “if it isn’t broken why fix it” for the 2024 year and that’s just fine with us. The one thing that people were hoping for was the manual transmission, but it looks like we’ll have to wait another year.

7 Chevrolet Corvette

Starting MSRP: $66,300

The Chevrolet Corvette has been the people’s champion for as long as it has been around. The current eighth generation in particular offers performance that completely overshadows its price tag. The 2024 C8 Corvette is a mid-engine beast, ready to take on exotic supercars.

Performance

In 2024 the Corvette comes in a plethora of new colors: Riptide Blue, Cacti Green, and Sea Wolf Gray. A pale-green interior styling called Artemis is now also optional. Chevrolet has also made the engine bay even more attractive by adding the option of dressing it up along with power operation for the rear hatch to help it close more smoothly. The 2024 Corvette also comes with a bunch of new standard driver assistance tech.

6 Porsche 718 Cayman/Boxster

Starting MSRP: $68,300

While not as decked out as the 911, the Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster are possibly one of the most exceptional sports cars on the market. Where the 911 blends luxury and performance, the 718 offers drivers a much simpler experience that would appeal to those who frequent tracks and look to push their driving abilities to the limit.

Performance

Along with the incredible range of 718s available for the 2023 model year, for 2024 Porsche offers a new Style Edition. This new 718 is a step up from the base model and features some design flourishes, like 20-inch wheels and hood and door stripes, as well as a host of interior upgrades like heated seats and embossed Porsche logos on the headrests.

5 Lotus Emira

Starting MSRP: est. $72,900

It’s no secret that Lotus is giving up on gas-powered cars. They’ve made it quite clear that their future is going to be all-electric. However, before disappointing a hoard of traditionalists, they’ve decided to give their fans one last ode to the power of gasoline, the Lotus Emira.

Performance

The Lotus Emira is the successor to the Evora GT and looks to be much more comfortable, practical, and fun than its predecessor. Although its standard powertrain is a turbocharged inline-four, there is also the option of a supercharged V-6 that would give it enough power to compete with the Porsche 718.

4 Jaguar F-Type

Starting MSRP: $77,900

In terms of modern-day luxury sports coupes, the Jaguar F-Type goes a bit under the radar. However, we think the British automaker’s supercharged beast is extremely underrated. It may not offer the same next-level performance as the Porsche 718 or the Corvette, but its interior and the drama that its supercharged V-8 brings to the table has to count for something.

Performance

This is why it makes us so sad that 2024 will mark the final year for the Jaguar F-Type, alongside the automaker’s 75th anniversary. Two special editions, the 75 and the 75 R will join the F-Type range for 2024 that will feature unique badging inside and out, specially crafted wheel designs, and Giola Green as a unique exterior color option.

3 BMW M4

Starting MSRP: $78,100

The M4 has quickly become the favorite of BMW fans looking for a performance-oriented experience within the German firm’s selection. Essentially the coupe version of the M3, the M4 delivers on all the performance promises of the M3 in a tighter, sleeker, lighter, and more sporty body.

Performance

The M4 holds on to a lot of its major components from 2023 including its twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine and its sleek chassis. The main updates for the 2024 model is the 12.3-inch and 14.9-inch infotainment display that other BMWs have been getting, including the updated iDrive 8 software offering better ease of use and new software features.

2 Porsche 911

Starting MSRP: $114,400

The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars in the world and has been around longer than most others. Each 911 generation has been an incremental improvement over the last, with Porsche dedicated to crafting the most timeless sports car in existence. The 2024 model takes another step in that direction.

Performance

Whilst not much changes for the 911s 2024 model year, unless you’re looking at the turbo which is getting a special edition, any small change to this already cracking sports car is worth noting. Most of the changes for the upcoming model year involve the infotainment system, with Spotify becoming a native app and Android Auto now becoming compatible.

1 McLaren 750S

Starting MSRP: $329,500

When it comes to supercars, few produce engineering marvels as well as the British automaker, McLaren. Back in 2022, they silently discontinued a fan favorite, the 720S, but it looks like it’s back and better than ever with a brand-new name to go along with its numerous changes.

Performance

The 2024 McLaren 750S is essentially a new and improved 720S. McLaren has spent a lot of time and money making the already impressive supercar even more lightweight and has also increased the power output. It may not be a new McLaren but the 750S takes an already outstanding car and makes it even better, which we can’t complain about.
