The 2016 version of the spiritual successor to the legendary Supra sports a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4, complimented by two electric motors for a combined 450 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Capable of hitting 60 m.p.h. in less than 4 seconds, the “Future Toyota” caps out at a top speed of 180 m.p.h.

Infiniti’s Q60 isn’t expected to go into production for another two years, but when it does, it’ll come out of the factory with a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 and seven-speed automatic transmission in a lightweight Alcantara and carbon fiber body. A stargazing-worthy glass roof tops it all off, though it might look more like Star Trek once you get it up to speed.

Lexus added a high-powered sedan to its F performance lineup in the form of the 2016 GS F, which drops a 5.0-liter V8 with 467 horsepower into the luxury sport line. Drivers will have their choice of Normal, Eco, Sport and Sport S+ modes, the last of which is designed to be reserved for the track, though we doubt it’ll stay there.
