Pretty high on our list is the mid-engine Corvette. Chevrolet has tortured us long enough with camouflaged prototypes, and we can't wait for this new model that could make 850 hp through a 5.5-liter engine. It's expected to go on sale in 2019, so a reveal will likely happen sometime this coming year. The successor to the Toyota Supra, another car we've been waiting on forever, should appear in 2018 riding on a platform co-developed with BMW.

Given how much we like the Ford GT350, we're excited for the reveal of the GT500, which will debut very soon--likely in time for the nameplate's 50th anniversary--if these leaked engine drawings are any indication. The Ford Mustang Bullitt will also likely return to the stage to keep the memory of the 1968 Steve McQueen film alive and well. We've already driven the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but we can't wait to put it through our battery of tests and see if the manufacturer's claimed 2.3-second 0-60 time holds up. And the new year wouldn't be complete without the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, which goes on sale in the spring, or the Aston Martin Vantage, which will take on the Porsche 911 when it arrives in the U.S. in the third quarter.

2018 Ford Mustang Gets the RTR Treatment

  2018 Ford Mustang Gets the RTR Treatment <p>Courtesy of Vaughn Gittin Jr.</p>Aside from the RTR badges on the side, the most obvious sign you're looking at an RTR Mustang is that set of illuminated "nostrils" on the front end. Whether you like the look or not, they were there on the last RTR Mustang, and they're still there on the new one. Every RTR Mustang also comes with the graphics package you see here, as well as a signed plaque on the dash, and a tweaked aero package that includes that redesigned front bumper.

Published on Tuesday, 02 January 2018 18:12. The last 12 months have been rather exciting in cars . The next 12 look better yet. The aim, we ’ re told, is for the new Fiesta ST to “deliver a broader appeal for an even wider range of car -buyers”.

Of course, we aren't just lusting after sports cars. We're also keeping our eyes out for the Ford Ranger, which should debut next year before it arrives in North America in 2019. A Jeep Wrangler pickup will also likely show itself in 2018, with a suspension inspired by the Ram 1500. Jaguar's electric I-Pace has also piqued our interest after we went for a ride-along in one and enjoyed its composed ride and quick reflexes. We're curious about the Subaru Ascent, which promises to correct the errors of the Tribeca with its spacious cabin and three full rows of seating. Other SUVs we can't wait to explore include the Lamborghini Urus and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which just set a record on the N rburgring.
