MORE AT CNBC.COM
New cars debut at auto shows well in advance of their street dates, giving enthusiasts months, sometimes years, to salivate over photos and to fantasize about when they can drive one off the lot. Needless to say, the longer the waiting period, the more desirable these cars become.
What follows is a list of 10 upcoming cars that you can’t buy yet, provided by Karl Brauer, CEO and editor-in-chief of TotalCarScore.com, an online review aggregator and information resource for cars on the market. According to Brauer, these cars will be worth the wait. In some cases, the cars are slated for release so far in the future that pictures don't yet exist, so we used the latest models available in those cases.
Read ahead and see which cars made TotalCarScore.com’s list of cars you have to wait for.
2013 SRT Viper
The Dodge Viper returns to the marketplace after a two-year absence. Now dubbed the SRT Viper, Brauer of TotalCarScore.com referred to it as “the newest product from Chrysler's newest, performance-oriented brand” in an email.
“With 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque from the V10 engine,” Brauer adds, “it will have a top speed of 206 mph (miles per hour) and hit 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds,” he said. “An updated chassis, suspension and interior make it the most refined Viper ever, all for a starting price just under $100,000.”
2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus
“From its LED lighting, front and rear, to its mid-mounted, 550 horsepower V10 engine, the top-of-the-performance-line R8 V10 Plus is lighter and quicker than the standard R8 V10,” Brauer said, adding that it will reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
