1 of 12 Chevrolet

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The 2014 Corvette Stingray has only just hit the market and Chevrolet is already hustling a supercharged Z06 model into the American muscle car battleground. Do want!
2 of 12 Subaru

2015 Subaru WRX STI

Subaru's high-performance 2015 Impreza WRX STI has been confirmed for debut. We expect it to look like it does in these leaked photos.
3 of 12 Lexus

Lexus RC F Coupe

Lexus pulled the wraps off of its V-8 powered BMW M4 fighter. It's called the RC F Coupe and it looks surprisingly good for a coupe based on the awkwardly-styled new IS sedan.
4 of 12 Infiniti

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept

Infiniti redesigns the Q50 sport sedan into the Q50 Eau Rouge concept. Its wider, lower, and more aerodynamic curves are sculpted with carbon fiber. A collaboration with Infiniti’s Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team, we also expect the performance to have been boosted to match the exterior and interior upgrades.
5 of 12 Kia Motors

Kia GT Stinger concept

I assumed that this GT Stinger concept would be a Kia-badged, tiger-nosed Veloster Turbo variant like the ones I saw at SEMA 2013, but the automaker states that under this 2+2 coupe's hood is "a turbocharged 2.0-liter that pumps 315 horsepower to the rear wheels." Consider my interest piqued.
6 of 12 Toyota

Toyota Vision Gran Turismo concept

Following Mercedes-Benz, the next automaker to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo racing simulator/game will be Toyota, with its own Vision Gran Turismo concept. With a very Supra-esque profile, this concept should also make an appearance in the PlayStation game.
7 of 12 Acura

2015 Acura TLX Prototype

It looks like Acura will be merging its TL and TSX sedans into one model to rule them all, simplifying its lineup. The TLX Prototype that will be showcased at Detroit will be a thinly veiled preview of what to expect from a production car later this year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Sport Wagon variant...
8 of 12 Mini

Mini John Cooper Works Concept

Mini isn't giving us any time to get used to the new Cooper hatchback's looks before trying to dazzle us with a higher-performance John Cooper Works concept.

2015 Ford Mustang (again)

The 2015 Ford Mustang has already been revealed, but I'm looking forward to seeing it in the round at the Detroit auto show.
10 of 12 Volvo

Volvo Concept XC Coupe

Volvo's gorgeous Concept Coupe evolves into a gorgeous Concept XC Coupe at the Detroit auto show. Who'd have thought I'd be so excited about a Volvo crossover?
11 of 12 BMW

BMW M4 and 2 Series coupes

BMW continues to split the 3 Series sedan and 4 Series coupe model number split with the hot M4 performance coupe. How fitting that this will debut across the show floor from the Lexus RC F coupe?
Additionally, the new 2 Series coupe should also make a North American debut. This is the two-door variant of the 1 series compact sedan.
12 of 12 Chrysler

2015 Chrysler 200

I'm not a fan of the current Chrysler 200, but these leaked photos of the next 200 pictures have grabbed my interest. Looking to be based on the Dodge Dart's underpinnings, this 2015 should bring to the model a sizable styling and performance bump.
