by Oct 31, 2022Blog0 comments

2023 may easily trump 2022 when it comes to the number of cool cars hitting the market.
The automotive industry is arguably the most competitive in the world, with multiple manufacturers doing everything in their power to convince you to choose their vehicle over thousands of models available in the market. As such, manufacturers are always introducing new models or new generations of their existing models to attract buyers and keep them coming back.

2023 is right around the corner, and the most exciting thing for many gearheads is seeing the latest and greatest cars manufacturers have been working on, some of which they've been looking forward to since they saw them as concept cars years ago. Read on to discover some of the most exciting models coming to the market in 2023.
The EV industry of the 2010s was largely dominated by Tesla, as it was the only automaker building high-quality EVs for the masses. This has changed as more traditional automakers like Porsche, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz have joined the market.
The Mercedes-Benz EQ series is particularly interesting, as it aims to introduce electric versions of the Mercedes-Benz models we've grown up loving. Mercedes-Benz has already introduced the electric version of the S-Class – the EQS – and in 2023, it will do the same for the E-Class when it starts selling the EQE.
Supercars typically have just two seats to keep the weight as low as possible to achieve the insane performance levels manufacturers desire. Koenigsegg is looking to rewrite these rules when the Gemera hits the streets next year.
The Gemera will be the world's first four-seat supercar, as it will reportedly have a top speed of around 250 mph. This is all thanks to its revolutionary 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged three-cylinder engine that makes an astonishing 590 hp and three electric motors that boost output to 1,700 hp.
The Toyota GR Yaris wowed many gearheads when it debuted in 2020, as its rally-sourced technologies made it one of the most fun-to-drive hot hatches ever. Unfortunately, Toyota never sold the GR Yaris in the US, which left many gearheads disappointed.
Thankfully, Toyota has confirmed that it will right its wrongs by selling the new GR Corolla in the US in 2023. The GR Corolla was built by Toyota's Gazoo Racing division and has many of the race-inspired components found in the GR Yaris, including its peppy 1.6-liter turbocharged straight-three engine.
The beloved muscle car is sadly an endangered species as the automotive industry shifts to smaller engines and electric drivetrains. Thankfully, Ford has confirmed a new generation of the iconic Mustang.

The new Mustang has an updated design that retains the overall menacing look of its predecessor with a few tweaks here and there, such as the headlights and taillights design. There will be multiple engine options for the new Mustang, including a turbocharged four-cylinder and an updated 5.0-liter Coyote V8.
Like many other traditional automakers, BMW has finally accepted the fact that EVs are the future and has said it plans to offer a fully electric model for every segment by the end of 2023. Luxury cars are the easiest to convert to electric since the quietness of the drivetrain adds to the overall luxury feel, which is why BMW is introducing the i7 next year.
As the name suggests, the i7 is the electric version of BMW's flagship full-size luxury sedan – the 7-Series. It has an imposing design, most of the luxury elements found in the 7-Series, a 536-hp dual-motor all-wheel-drive setup, and over 300 miles of driving range.
The eighth-generation Corvette has received rave reviews since its debut, and we think it deserves all the praise. As it has done for each Corvette generation since the C5, Chevy unveiled a high-performance version of the C8 – the Z06.
The Z06 will debut in 2023 and will have three trim levels. It will be powered by the most powerful naturally aspirated series production V8 engine – a 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine producing 670 hp.
The eleventh-generation Honda Civic debuted in 2021, maintaining the car's reputation as one of the longest-running Japanese models in history. As is the case with every new Civic generation, it didn't take long before gearheads started asking Honda for a Type-R version, and Honda obliged.
Honda recently unveiled the new Civic Type-R and is planning to start making deliveries in 2023. Dubbed the FL5, the new Civic Type-R has a fresh design that is more toned down than its predecessor and the same four-cylinder engine under the hood but with a revised turbocharger.
In 2019, Tesla boss Elon Musk sent shockwaves through the automotive world when he unveiled what was supposed to be the first-ever electric pickup truck – the Cybertruck. The Cybertruck wowed gearheads with its sheer size and futuristic design that made it look like nothing else on the road.

The Cybertruck promptly won Automotive Magazine's Concept of the Year award and reportedly earned over 250,000 pre-orders. The Cybertruck's production has been pushed back several times since 2019, with the latest reports indicating it could be delivered in mid-2023.
In 2016, a journalist asked Ferrari's CEO at the time whether the company would ever make an SUV to which he replied, "you'd have to shoot me first". Fast forward to 2022, and Ferrari unveiled its first-ever crossover SUV – the Purosangue.
We don't blame Ferrari for this move, as the huge popularity of SUVs has made them cash cows for all automakers. Plus, we think the Purosangue will be among the best crossover SUVs when it debuts next year. Not only is it one of the best-looking and most luxurious SUVs around, but it also has a 715-hp V12 engine that sounds glorious.
The Z Series is as iconic as it gets when it comes to Nissans. The Z Series has been in production since the '60s and continues to be a stylish, reliable, and powerful sports car that budget-minded gearheads can buy.
The latest installment of the Z-Series will debut next year to replace a rather bland 370Z. The 400Z has an updated design that looks cooler and more futuristic than the 370Z and is powered by a twin-turbo V6 making 400 hp. At $40,000, the 400Z will be among the best sports car bargains in 2023.
