The GR86 is a back-to-basics sports car in the best way. It's fun to drive, reasonably priced and somewhat practical. It can be a bit noisy and stiff-riding at times, but those downsides are easy to live with, considering all of the car's other outstanding attributes. Read full review

Best Luxury sport coupes

Don't let the name fool you. While there's plenty of luxury in this class, it also contains some of the most uncompromising go-fast machines on the market.

1st
The Corvette went mid-engine for 2020 and is the hottest new sports car on the market. Chevrolet has taken its performance icon and improved it in nearly every way. It's bonkers fast, it handles beautifully, manages traffic and daily errands well, and is still (relatively) affordable. Read full review

The Porsche 911 is the product of relentless evolution. Its rear engine placement is unique in the motoring world, and its instantly recognizable styling is complemented by outstanding driving dynamics. The 911 remains a benchmark among sports cars. Read full review

The BMW 8 Series is remarkable for its ability to deliver performance and comfort in abundance. Its interior is modern, elegant and packed with tech, and there's more trunk space than its sleek exterior suggests. Choosing between this and the venerable Porsche 911 will be a tough decision.

The BMW M4 is an impressive performance coupe. It's got plenty of grip and the turbocharged six-cylinder is strong. The M4 is also a surprisingly comfortable, spacious and practical. But the lack of steering feel is a significant drawback to driver enjoyment. Read full review

The Toyota Supra is back, much to the delight of sports car fans. It offers comparable performance to a Porsche Cayman, but at a considerably lower price. We think it looks pretty sharp, too. It's worth considering if you're in the market for a fast and fun coupe. Read full review

If all you care about are performance numbers, the RS 5 Sportback is impressive in the way it fires off the line and grips through turns. But for those who want to feel engaged in the driving experience, the RS 5 Sportback may leave that desire unfulfilled. Read full review

Few cars can match the handling balance and precision of the Porsche 718 Cayman. The move to a turbocharged four-cylinder resulted in an engine sound that's less compelling, but it remains a benchmark sports car. Read full review

Loud and raucous, the Jaguar F-Type coupe is pure automotive indulgence. Its gorgeous shape and proportions pair perfectly with its aggressive performance, although its subpar technology features, cramped cabin and limited storage space are compromises you'll have to accept. Read full review

The Nissan GT-R provides staggering levels of performance in an easy-to-drive package, but shows its age in day-to-day driving. Its competitors are able to combine similar performance with more refinement, comfort and technology. Read full review

This Nissan Z is more modern and more comfortable than the previous model, and will likely appeal to a wider audience. Unfortunately, it still lacks the speed, precision and driver engagement that we think discerning drivers will expect. Read full review

The Lexus RC F struggles to keep up with other high-performance coupe rivals. It's just not as energetic or as agile. But if all you want is a boldly styled luxury coupe with a big V8 engine, the RC F is pretty satisfying. Read full review

Best Exotic sport coupes

In this rarified segment, face-melting performance, eye-popping design and wallet-melting prices come together to make the kind of car that belongs on a poster.

1st
The Z06 makes the most of the C8 Corvette's mid-engine platform. It offers superlative acceleration and a spine-tingling engine howl for a fraction of the price of an Italian exotic. Handling is also on par with any fancy import from Europe. Read full review

The GT3 is not only the ultimate expression of the 911 but of the Porsche brand itself. Its competency on the track extends to everyday life on the road, but the GT3 truly comes into its own when you find yourself on a racetrack. Only there can you experience the might of Porsche's advanced engineering and fully bask in the sound of a flat-six engine wailing away at 9,000 rpm. Read full review

The Audi R8 shares DNA with real race cars and sports a gloriously high-revving V10 engine that's mounted amidships for excellent balance. We don't need to tell you it’s fast, but it’s also surprisingly easy and comfortable to drive. Read full review

The Huracan STO maxes out track day fun with improved aerodynamics, a stripped-out interior and the most capable braking system we've ever experienced. Sure, cargo capacity and rear visibility are comically bad, but if you want a singular driving experience that comes with a warranty and loads of exclusivity, look no further. Read full review
