The 12 Most Exciting Cars Coming in 2022

porsche-718-cayman-gt4-rs.jpg

2021 has been, for all intents and purposes, a fairly slow year in terms of new cars, newly announced projects, and new technologies for those cars and projects—mostly due to the global pandemic and the knock-on effect it helped cause across all industries. What that has meant, however, is that 2022 is shaping up to be one hell of a year for the sports, super, and hyper car sectors—and for those of us who are rabid fans of them.

It is with this anticipation and excitement about what this year will bring that we look forward to what we here at Supercars.net have agreed upon as the cars we are the most excited to see come out this year. Some you may look at and think “Why is that exciting?”, and we may miss some of the cars that you, our readers and community, are excited about—so keep in mind that this is just our list and our opinions.

Also, these are in no particular order!

2022 Porsche 718 GT4 RS

For the longest time, decades, half a century even, Porsche has always put top priority on the 911 model line. This makes sense, as it is their most popular, best selling, and highest tech product, which has helped usher in newer technologies and manufacturing styles that helped lead to mega-projects like the inimitable Porsche 918.

That’s why we’re excited to see that Porsche has finally, properly given their mid-market lineup a bit of the gravy, in the form of the first ever 718 (aka Cayman) model to bear the famous Rennsport letters after its name. Utilizing a 4.0L naturally aspirated flat-six engine that has been designed specifically for it, the Porsche 718 GT4 RS is set to tear into 2022 with damned near 500 HP, 331 lbs-ft of torque, and a rev limiter set to 9,000 RPM.

0 to 60 MPH should be gone in less than 3.2 seconds, and the car’s acceleration is helped by a bespoke version of the Porsche PDK transmission for the GT4 RS alone that has 7-speeds and race-car quick shifts.

The only downside in building the GT4 RS to be as powerful, fast, and exciting as it is, is that it also brings the price up to be near 911 territory, at $141,700 USD. However, it is a limited model, unlike the regular GT4, and the 718 generation is likely to be the last by Porsche to be powered entirely by petrol—so what better way to lead to the hybrid and EV era than by making one hell of a street and track monster?

2022 GMA T.50

2022 Gordon Murray Automotive T50

Gordon Murray, for those that followed Formula 1 in the 1980s, is a name that was already legendary for his race car designs. He was the man behind the Brabham BT46B Fan Car, so revolutionary it was banned after winning the only race it was entered in. He also had a hand in the design and technical specifications of one of the most dominant Formula 1 cars ever made, the 1988 McLaren Honda MP4/4.

That relationship with McLaren continued, as he was then tasked with making the “ultimate supercar” as the company’s first ever road car and (either accidentally or on purpose) made what many consider to be the first ever hypercar, the McLaren F1. We flesh out these facts and his history because just a few years shy of the McLaren F1 turning 30, he felt that materials and technology had advanced enough for him to produce his magnum opus.

That car is the 2022 Gordon Murray Automotive T.50. It’s ultra-lightweight, powered by a 4.0L V12 that only the magicians at Cosworth could develop within his exacting specifications, and it uses a 48-volt electric hybrid system to power a massive aerodynamic fan mounted in the rear of the car. Numbers? 654 HP, 344 lbs-ft of torque, 986 kg (2,174 lbs), with a 6-speed xtrac H-pattern manual transmission.

All 100 build slots have been sold, each at the equivalent of $3.2 million USD, and production starts in just a few months. We can’t wait to see one of these get reviewed, because we’re expecting it to be spectacular.
