These 5 Automakers Desperately Need To Build A Sports Car - CarBuzz
The NSX and S2000 are some of the greatest driving cars of all time, without being as finicky as an Italian exotic. Genesis is now its own luxury brand like Lexus is to Toyota or Acura is to Honda. Currently, the brand only has two models, the G90 (which was the old Equus) and the G80 (which was the old Genesis). This will be the successor to the old Genesis Coupe, although we doubt that the two cars will be very similar. Acura and Honda have built some of the nicest driving cars that are also incredibly practical and reliable. After Dieselgate, the company really can't afford to invest heavily in a low-volume sports car, but this doesn't mean it wouldn't be an awesome if it did. We always wish that Porsche would revive the 914 as a back-to-basics sports car below the 718 Boxster and Cayman. However, carmakers are in the business of making money and sports cars aren't exactly selling well right now. Still, we think that sports cars have a place in the market to attract people to a brand. A great alternative to this could be a lightweight Volkswagen sports car with the same 2. 0-liter turbocharged engine as the GTI. As enthusiasts, we wish that every manufacturer would do nothing but build great driving sports cars. We know that the Genesis brand is planning a BMW 3 Series-sized sedan and two SUVs, but the sports car is what has us the most intrigued. There are still several manufacturers that don't have a single sports car in the lineup and we came up with five companies in particular that we think need to build one. Despite not being the biggest fans of the Cadillac XLR, we think that GM has the potential to make a sports car that could be a world beater. For Cadillac, we would love to see a mid engined supercar with V8 LS power , but would also be satisfied with something front-engined and RWD akin to the Lexus LC500 or Aston Martin DB11. Unlike the Corvette, this car should have a softer... What Honda and Acura need is a back-to-basics sports car that reminds everyone why the company was once known as the brains behind some of the sweetest sports cars of all time. We hope that this new car will get the 365-hp V6 turbo engine, or the 420-hp V8. Volkswagen has built sporty cars like the GTI for years, but it has rarely forayed into the realm of a true sports car. Source: www.carbuzz.com
Cadillac Could Jump Into The Supercar Game By Reviving The XLR - CarBuzz
Just imagine a mid-engined Cadillac with a 6. 2-liter supercharged V8 putting out 650 to 700 horsepower. If GM really hopes to get on the supercar map, it needs to be accomplished using the Cadillac brand. That is why introducing a mid-engined Cadillac sounds like the better idea. Let's face it, Cadillac's attempt to build its own version of the Corvette was a failure. Even though both of these cars are incredibly fast, some buyers want to know that they are buying a car that also has a prestigious badge. Cars like the CTS-V have proved that they are more than capable of taking on the German competition, and so too could a Cadillac supercar. We think a lot of Ford GT owners would be clamoring to break those silly contracts with Ford to swap their cars for a Cadillac V0. Cadillac has proved that it can build some good cars , but we think that a supercar is just what the company needs to be looked at as a serious threat. We think that naming this mid-engined car after the performance arm of Cadillac would give it credibility among supercars. There are many rumors floating around that GM is working on a mid-engined Corvette for the C8 generation, but we think that this rumored prototype should be a Cadillac instead. That is why we propose the new name, V0. V is Cadillac's performance brand that is attached to the brand's best cars like the CTS-V and ATS-V. It also made use of Cadillac's maligned Northstar V8, rather than the excellent LS6 that was available in the CTS-V and Corvette Z06. The XLR might be classed as a failure, but we think it deserves to live again. The current C7 Corvette is an astonishing car, but it seems very unlikely that Cadillac will make the same mistake of just rebadging the Corvette again. By calling this new car the XLR, or even something new, GM can avoid any bias that may exist with the Corvette name and avoid messing with the Corvette legacy. The XLR was the American answer to the Mercedes SL, and even though that car has lost some of its historic luster, it was still miles better that Cadillac's car. Source: www.carbuzz.com

Cadillac has had a long history in the automotive marketplace as General Motors' luxury car division. During the 1980s, Cadillac's management wanted to reestablish the brand as a leader in sophistication, innovation, refinement and prestige. Engineers conceived a new dual-overhead cam, four-valve-per-cylinder V-8 engine--the Northstar. This power plant was the heart of Cadillac's Northstar System, which included a greatly improved suspension and braking system. The division redesigned its...
