: 2008 CTS-V Coupe

Check out Motor Trend's September issue, page 132, where they list the "Top Ten Cars Worth Waiting For".

1. Audi R8 (2007)
2. Aston Martin Rapide (2008)
3. BMW M3 (2007)
4. Cadillac CTS-V Coupe (2008)

"Bob Lutz gave 'Today Show' viewers a glimpse of a coupe version of the next-gen CTS. Those who've seen it say the two-door is a stunning evolution of Cadillac's Art and Science design with a classy interior. Better yet, GM sources hint the V-series versions due in 2008 will have north of 500 horsepower."
5. Chevrolet Camaro (2009)

"The new Camaro will make its debut in model year 2009. Entry-level cars will feature a V-6 engine, with the mainstream V-8 being the 400 horsepower LS2. A 500 horsepower LS7 - a new ZL-1 perhaps? - also is under consideration to take on the Shelby GT500. All transmissions will be six-speed, and a convertible is to be added to the mix."
6. Dodge Challenger (2008)

This issue apparently went to press before Chrysler announced that they would build the Challenger. Best info is that it will debut in late 2008 and offer only the 5.7L and 6.1L Hemi engines, meaning 425 horsepower tops. Six-speed manual is likely, although in my opinion they'll sell more if they offer an autostick. Speculation abounds regarding the 500+ HP 6.4L crate race engine as an option in 2009.
7. Lexus LF-A supercar (2008)
8. Mini Traveller (2007)
9. Mitsubishi Evo X (????)
10. Nissan GT-R (2008)

Sure seems like it is worth holding out another year or so (I've been surfing the web looking for M5's and 911's all morning).
