Top 10 most anticipated 2013 cars

We’re never happy with what we have now. Or, better yet, we’re always looking to the future for bigger, better and faster things. 2012 is at our doorstep and with it comes numerous new cars.

So far, there are literally dozens of cars for the 2013 model year that are tickling our collective fancies. One such example is the upcoming Ford Focus ST. Because we can’t (we could but we won’t) build a 35-car gallery, we decided to limit the list to 10.

Well, we tried. The following gallery includes cars that we can’t wait to see in the steel or better yet, drive. As the auto show season picks up its pace, we’ll see more of these, but you’ll agree that driving the cars is the best part.

We’re well aware that some cars you might be looking forward to are not on this list but you know us, before you can say autumnal equinox, we’ll have covered most of them through news, previews or reviews.

Here are our Top 10-ish most anticipated 2013 cars in pictures.

2013 Audi RS4

RS is the shiznit for any Audi. The previous RS4 ranks high, very high on everyone’s car wish list. This one will kill with an expected minimum of 450 hp. (Photo: AudiBlog.nl)

2013 BMW M3

The official pics of the 2012 3 Series Sedan have been out for a while now and all we can say is that BMW’s done it again. Given this, the next M3 is going to be phenomenal. (Photo: BMW)

2013 Toyota GT 86 / 2013 Scion FR-S / 2013 Subaru BRZ


It’s coming! It’s coming! We’ve seen the final (or thereabouts) cars in L.A. and Tokyo and we’re salivating at the thought of putting these cars through their paces. More details on the Toyota GT 86, Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ. (Photo: Toyota, Subaru)

2013 Tesla Model S


Big, fast and deathly quiet. If this car drives half as good as it looks, the Model S may become THE electric car to have. More details on the Tesla Model S (Photo: Tesla Motors)

2013 Cadillac XTS

General Motors ain’t foolin’ when they say that Cadillac will soon reclaim its rightful spot at the top of the luxury-car heap. The XTS is a looker. More details on the Cadillac XTS. (Photo: General Motors)

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

This very popular midsize family sedan will be making a comeback like no other. If Honda, Chrysler and Nissan don’t fix their offerings soon, they will fall further down shopping lists. More details on the Chevrolet Malibu. (Photo: General Motors)

2013 Dodge Viper

Details are scarce but trust in Mr. Gilles’ desire to make the next Viper more badass than ever before. The Corvette ZR1 may have to bring spare pants when they will be pitted against each other. (Photo: Chrysler, topSpeed.com)
