One vehicle that I'm rooting for is the new take on the Quant, soon to be out at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The Quant has been mentioned way upthread, and there have been at least two concepts that, so far, have been released. This upcoming version by nanoFLOWCELL and Keonigsegg's founder will hopefully show more promise, and also hopefully reach prototype, and production stages. This could be something of a higher-tier Tesla S sedan, and it's to be a large size, too, a touch bigger than the LWB Mercedes Benz S-Class sedan: http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...-sedan-project
Another that I'm rooting for it what Infiniti has in store. I've posted something on this upthread, but, latest news is that at Geneva, the Q50 Eau Rogue concept will have it's engine revealed. It's not yet known what the cylinder-count will be, a V8 or a twin-turbo V6, and sources say that it will have over 500HP and 600lb-ft of torque. This makes me more anxious for what's in store for the planned flagships, the large 4-door coupe and front-engined 2-door GT coupe.
Also, as I mentioned up thread, that new large RWD flagship sedan for Cadillac, where test-mules are now running around, justifying it being a work in progress. This looks to the size of a Rolls-Royce Ghost regular-wheelbase, or maybe even the LWB version, or Bentley Mulsanne. Also, what powerplants will it receive, and will the 2-door coupe version of it, similar to the Elmiraj, a well-received concept, be built? While we're on Cadillac, now here's the test-mule of what is very likely the upcoming, and anticipated CTS-V, which could have the LT4, the supercharged version of the new LT1 6.2L V8, and maybe toward 600HP: http://www.autoblog.com/2014/02/20/c...s-v-spy-shots/
Now, onto Fisker, where I'm glad that it's not going by the wayside, as we all now know that China's Wanxiang won the bid for the company. Latest reports indicates that Wanxiang is now teaming up with Bob Lutz, who is behind building the VL Automotive version of the Fisker Karma, called the Destino, which replaces the hybrid and electric hardware with a GM-sourced supercharged V8, making it a gas-guzzling muscle-car. Wanxiang and Bob Lutz had no previous association, until now. The Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid will not be abandoned as a result, but will be built along side and along with the supercharged V8 Destino version. Production will begin in the coming months, in Finland, Auburn Hills. MI, and eventually in a former GM plant in Delaware: http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...z-on-v-8-karma
These are all different segments, but, what MCLAREN_P10 had stated upthread, and some time ago, is that what defines a supercar is having a power-output of 500+HP, and a hypercar is defined as having 700+HP. Of course, this could cover a broad range of segments from sportsters, sedans, coupes/GT-coupes and even SUVs, all shapes, sizes and cylinder-counts, etc. Many mentioned in this long-running thread are even below the 500HP mark, can even be in the upper 300HP or between 400-500HP, and are still higher-tier and performance machines of varying segments and well worthy and of interest for this thread.
