For the speed freaks in the crowd, BusinessWeek.com has put together a sizeable supercar special report that focuses exclusively on the automotive superlative. Of course, we’ve touched on small, indie shops like Koenigsegg as well as the efforts of larger operations that have produced the likes of Audi’s hot new R8 recently.
But this time, we take an in-depth look at the origin of supercars, shine spotlights on today’s most glamorous models, profile up and coming nameplates as well as the industry’s design stars, and even — for the lucky few who might need them — provide a few tips on how to buy a supercar.
After putting it all together, though, I spent some time thinking about the cars that didn’t make the coverage but probably should have. From the gut:
- Chevy Corvette Stingray
- Porsche Carrera RS & GT
- Maserati Ghibli
- Acura NSX
- Plus, obviously, a handful of timeless Ferraris and Lamborghinis like the Enzo and Countach.
All of these are significant, and there’re undoubtedly more. What other must-drool over supercars, of all time or on the market now, would you add to that list? Sound off in the comments.
