In the automobile sector, sports cars have blown the mind of various car lovers and earned themselves a vast and dedicated following. The cars capture the minds of many due to their performance and also their sleek looks that transcend the border of imagination. There are several sports car models in the industry, each making a name for itself in one way or the other. For the longevity of the models, there needs to be a regular update on the appearance of the sports vehicles. It is the right move for adaptability to new technology and market needs. With the above notion as a guide, below are ten sports drives that need an update to their appearance.
1. The Lexus LFA
Lexus is the luxury car manufacturing wing of Toyota, and it is not a surprise that they came up with one of the best sports cars. The LFA came out in 2010 with production running until late 2012. Despite their production being discontinued, this is one car that you probably agree needs a revamp when and if Toyota decides to bring it back. One thing that strikes you about the car is the similarity to the Celica model. The only difference may be the slightly wider appearance. Though both are from the Toyota fraternity, a striking contrast will do justice for them.
2. The Fifth Generation Toyota Supra
As evident from AutoGuide, the Toyota supra ranks as the best Toyota sports car of all time. The vehicle was the deal in the autosport scene in the mid-90s until it ceased production in 2002. Come March 2019; it made a comeback. While it has a modern look, you can't help but notice that the Supra look s quite bulky and maybe 'overdone' especially in the rear. A facelift would be a decent move, though some revamp will help in the succeeding models.
3. Mercedes AMG GT 4 Door
A look at Mercedes Benz’s official website, you get an idea of how slick the AMG GT 4 door is. It sort of crosses the line between a family car and a sports drive. Its performance is excellent and can easily take the top 5 spots in the best sports car category. However, when it comes to looks, the German automobile sort of came short. The car looks like a hurried up design, and for a first impression, it fails for a sporting vehicle.
4. The Nissan GTR
The GTR was an unexpected move from Nissan into the autosport scene, and the results were outstanding as the automobile ranks as one of the best when it comes to sporting. It packs power and speed into the compact frame translating to a standout performance when it hits the asphalt. The only downside comes to its aesthetic value. It raises some eyebrows courtesy of its over pumped up look which gives it a bulky appearance. A correction on this aspect and you are sure of an excellent looker.
5. McLaren 720s
The 2017 Geneva show brought out a delightful gem in the form of the McLaren 720. It replaced the 650s model, and it is everything to talk about, save its appearance. While taking on the look of a supercar, it looks more experimental, and you may confuse it with a movie prop or an oversize toy. An appearance update would be a suitable move to boost its overall appeal.
6. Subaru BRZ
Subaru is well-known for its sedans that make an appearance in the autosport scene. An upgrade from these sedans in a full-fledged sports car comes in the form of the Subaru BRZ. A look at the vehicle on Subaru's official website paints a picture of a smooth-rolling drive suitable to hit the sporting arena, or adrenaline boosted road trip. Despite its performance, its appearance lacks the 'it' factor and takes on a rather generic outlook. To make it an all-round adrenaline drive, some adjustments are necessary, especially the weight.
7. Mazda MX-5
Mazda is a famous car manufacturer known for its amazing automobiles. Its move to the sporting category introduces us to the Mazda MX-5. The MX-5 is a two-seater roadster that can serve your nostalgic leanings with a look that is reminiscent of the dawn of auto-sports. The appearance is good, but a slight update to fit the contemporary modern settings will do some justice for this sports car. If Mazda makes an update, then the MX-5 will have a unique look like something out of a Golden age concept car convention.
8. BMW Z4
Another sports car that needs a revamp on its appearance is the BMW Z4. It is a great convertible that you can use to cruise around country roads, with a fantastic performance being a guarantee. On the looks department, a little tuning will do to make it have the sports car look as it is closer to a super sedan.
9. Volkswagen Golf GTE Sports
The Volkswagen Golf GTE sports combines the speed of a sports car and the comfort of a hatchback to bring out a versatile street drive. It is a smooth car that has impressive handling and needs a slight upgrade in its appearance for it to achieve a sporty look.
10. Chevrolet Camaro
The Chevrolet Camaro is one of the best sports cars that you can lay your hands on promising a remarkable performance. Though not designated for the off-road it has excellent handling in rough roads. The look is nothing to complain about, though it looks cliché taking the look of many muscle cars in the scene. A little change in design will make it more unique and a catchy vehicle in its aesthetic appeal.
Sports cars are the dream for many auto enthusiasts due to their power. One thing that stands out in autosports is the aesthetic factor which pushes the powerful notion behind their action in the asphalt. The entry above is for sports cars that need an update in their appearance. All we have to do is wait if there will be an upgrade or facelift to make them more aesthetically significant.
