It’s almost 2014, if you can believe. And near the end of every year we brace ourselves for the onslaught that is the Detroit Auto Show. But fear not — before we find ourselves graced with new photos from the Motor City, let’s take a trip back through the year and remember the five iconic cars that were redesigned in 2013, and how the remake was received.

What’s this? It appears those early reports of a reborn Toyota Supra may have had some merit to them after all. According to AutoPlus, this is the Toyota Vision Gran Turismo concept headed for the Detroit Auto Show, sporting some very Supra-esque lines (pictured below).
GT or ‘Grand Touring’ cars never seem to get the attention that their sporty convertible siblings do, but they should. There’s something alluring about the romance of packing a weekend’s worth of luggage in the cargo area and hitting the road with your sweetie, tearing through the mountains as fast as the car will carry you. This Triumph GT6 is the ultimate representation of 1960s British GT cars, and really nice examples like this one are available for not a lot of dough.
Chevy’s already promised us a high-performance Corvette Z06 for Detroit, but now we can get even more excited with the C7.R expected to debut in the Motor City. If you’re unaware, the C7.R is the Corvette’s race-brad counterpart, which will be taking to the track at the Rolex 24 At Daytona next year.
It was in 1975, that BMW employed the talents of one American artist by the name of Alexander Calder (you might have heard of him). It was his mission — should he accept it — to transform the BMW 3.0 CLS racing car of Herve Poulain into a work of art for the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans.
From then on, the idea stuck.
With the redesigned BMW 3 Series and all-new 4 Series coupe already on the streets, you knew the M3 and M4 were on there way. Prior to their impending debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January, someone, somewhere managed to leak these two out on the web. But we’re not complaining. The M3 sedan (looking handsome in a sultry blue) and the M4 Coupe (in an Austin Yellow Metallic) look the part of the performance machines we’ve been waiting for.
In 1962, Ferrari announced the 250 GTO. In 2012, it announced the F12berlinetta — a sort of successor to said classic touring car. But in a few years, we’re bound to see yet another gorgeous Ferrari in the Maranello-based automaker’s lineup, and we hope it looks this drop dead gorgeous.
Now that the 2015 Mustang has had its unofficial – and official – launch in social media, it’s had some time to settle in, and gallons of ink will be spilled over the next year on whether it’s a success or not. Through the lens of time, let’s take a look at nine of the more significant redesigns in automotive history, that either set a new standard or sent designers back to the drawing board.
Santa knows what he’s doing when he doles out gifts. If you’ve been a loudmouth, sniveling little heathen, he’s going to drop enough coal in your stocking to fuel the B&M railroad. If you’ve been good, then he will bestow upon you all that you want, but wanting something isn’t so cut and dry.
There is the “oh I know I’ve wanted this” wanted something, and there is the “I want an item that embodies all of these attributes” wanting something and not knowing exactly what that is. Thankfully, the choice of “least-desired” is a little more cut-and-dry. There are some cars that absolutely no one wants to drive. If you have not been behaving this year, take heed to my warning, as you may find this terrible ride in your garage come Christmas day:
If you thought the new Lexus RC coupe was going to be cool, prepare yourself for a whole new level of fun and performance. This is (probably) the first look of the hopped-up RC F coupe– the two-door successor to the now-extinct Lexus IS F.
Naturally, this is just a snippet of what we can expect when the new F model goes on display in Detroit. From what we can see, it’s bound to come with new wheels, new aerodynamics, and is apparently going to be a “bold, gritty, experience.” We like the sound of that.
