One thing’s for sure when it comes to our top 10 new sports cars of the Year: There is no shortage of vehicles out there that offer increasingly growing output totals and continually shrinking 0-60 times. And many have found a way to combine straightline performance with track-credible handling, too. But it’s also worth pointing out that a surprising number of those hi-po entries don’t fit the traditional definition of a sports car, with examples like the Charger Hellcat sedan making for an infernally powerful case in point.
Which, in turn, explains both why that car is off the list and why other choices that may push the ol’ sports-car envelope are on it.
These New sports cars all showcase key segment features, however, like rear-wheel drive, two-door body styles and sharply driver-focused cabins, and they had to deliver something “new" for the 2015 calendar year, too.
