Heading our list is the very same model that nabbed our coveted Best Supercar of the Year award for 2017. Scheduled for delivery later in 2018, the Valkyrie is a beast of a machine, packing an all-atmosphere 6.5-liter V-12 engine pumped up by a Formula One-style hybrid KERS system to produce 1,130 horsepower. Developed with input from Formula One genius Adrian Newey, the Valkyrie looks to make its mark in the performance world in a big way this year.

Finally, mercifully, Toyota is bringing back one of the most famous sports cars to ever carry a T badge. That’s right – the venerable Supra is poised to make its triumphant return in 2018, hopefully dropping in full-fledged production form just in time for the 2019 model year. We’ve already snapped pics of a camo’d test mule out and about on public roads, and word has it we’ll get official specs within the year.

We’ve had the current 3 Series (a.k.a. the F30) since 2011, which means it’s time for the Bavarians’ popular luxury four-door to update with a new generation.

Engine options will be diverse, and range up to a speed-focused M3 iteration making upwards of 500 horsepower.

Stuttgart’s first major evolution is this – the Mission E, the brand’s very first all-electric offering. Boasting classic sporty styling, a performance-oriented interior, and enough power to give all but the fastest Tesla Model S trim levels something to think about, the Mission E is pure Porsche performance, only electrified.

Aston Martin isn’t the only automaker getting in on the F1-style supercar game. Mercedes-AMG is also tossing its hat in the ring with this – the Project One. Making the go is an uber-high-strung 1.6-liter V-6 capable of spinning to an 11,000-rpm redline, plus there’s four electric motors for an extra electron punch when needed.
