A New Super Car Era?

Updated: Mar 15

It has been widely reported at this point that TESLA model Y is the top selling car of 2023 signifying a monumental shift in the automotive industry, beating out the efficient and reliable Toyota Corrola. Could this mark the beginning of the electric car era? Sales success reflects a growing trend toward electric propulsion, driven by factors such as environmental concerns, government regulations/incentives, and advancements in battery technology. However, while the rise of EV's may signal the end of an era for traditional combustion-engine vehicles, it also presents new opportunities for innovation and excitement in the automotive world. 


Historically, automotive evolution has been driven by a combination of regulatory changes, economic factors, and technological advancements. From the raw power of muscle cars like the Dodge Hellcat SRT to the precision engineering of all-wheel-drive systems in vehicles like the Nissan GT-R and Audi R8, VTEC developed by Honda as a solution to the trade-off between power and fuel efficiency in internal combustion engines. Each era has brought its own unique blend of innovation and excitement.




 

Heritage brands like Ferrari and McLaren are embracing electrification while maintaining their commitment to luxury and performance. Models such as the Ferrari 296 GTB, SF90, and McLaren Artura showcase the potential of electric drivetrains to deliver exhilarating driving experiences. American manufacturers like Chevrolet are also entering the electric sports car market with offerings like the Corvette E-Ray, demonstrating the broad appeal of EV technology.



 

Despite the shift toward EV's, there remains interest in classic and undervalued models from the past. Enthusiasts continue to appreciate the craftsmanship and heritage of these vehicles, preserving automotive history for future generations. At the same time, forward-thinking individuals are investing in future classics by securing allocations for upcoming electric supercars and sports cars, recognizing the potential value and collectability of these vehicles.


As Tesla's sales figures highlight the gradual adoption of EV's worldwide, the automotive landscape is poised for further change. However, the passion for cars, whether powered by internal combustion engines or electric motors, remains as strong as ever, driving innovation and excitement in the industry. The transition to electric vehicles represents not just a change in technology but a new chapter in the rich and vibrant history of automobiles.
