There's more car companies in the supercar field than ever before, but there's still plenty of car makers who don't have one. What would the supercars from all the non-players look like? Lets go through the possibilities. Now before you jump down my throat about what is and isn't a supercar, lets say for the purpose of this post that any car that can beat a Z51 Stingray around a track is a supercar. I've included what I think the probability of each brand making a supercar, these are values that I'm pulling out of my ass.

Acura/Honda - Yes yes, the joke that the NSX is never actually coming out is great, but seriously the NSX should be here anytime... right? Probability: NSX 90%

Alfa Romeo - Alfa's had some history of exotic sports cars in it's past with the Tipo 33 and 8C. There was (is?) a rumor of a 6C, which would be a larger six cylinder equivalent of the 4C. A lengthened more powerful 4C sounds great, wounder if Fiat would let Alfa compete with Maserati or even Ferrari? Probability: 6C 40%

Aston Martin - We've already got the One-77, it's not too far of a stretch to say the Vanquish or V12 Vantage S are supercars. That mid-engined Aston that we see every now and then, probably isn't going to happen. Probability: Vanquish 100% anything else 0%

Audi - The R8 does a pretty good job of being Audi's super car. There was rumor that Audi could make a car above the R8, complete with a turbo diesel and hybrid set up, haven't heard anything about that for a while now thought. Also not counting on any Quattro type car. Probability: R8 100% anything else 30%

Bentley - We've seen a supercar concept from Bentley and they seem pretty committed to high performance cars, but with all the other supercars in VAG's profile I highly doubt it. Probability 20%

BMW - Many would consider the i8 a super car, or even the M6/M5, that's all well and good but what about a pure focused speed machine? One rumor concerns a special high performance i8 to celibrate BMW's 100th(?) anniversary. Then again we've BMW shoot down the idea of an M i8 multiple times. Probability: Something other than the i8/M5/M6 40%

Buick - Nothing in the modern sense of the word (the GSX and GNX were pretty super). It's fun to imagine a mid engine turbo V6 sportscar form the "old people" brand. Probability 0%

Bugatti - Nothing but supercars 100%

Cadillac/Chevrolet - Recently we've been treated to spy shots of what looks like a mid-engine prototype running around GM's proving grounds. Which could very possibly give credibility to the looooong rumored mid-engined Corvette. If such a thing does exist it could just as likely be a Cadillac as a Corvette, either way it would be pretty cool. Even without this car the ZR1 and new Z06 do a great job of being one of the fastest cars on the road. Probability: Corvette 100% mid-engined car 60%

Citroen - Citroen likes to tease us with fancy concepts but has never made anything sportier than a mild hot hatch. If they did make one, however, it'd probably look like this... Probability: 0%

Chrysler/Dodge - Chrysler's had dozens of sportscar concepts over the years, the most super of which was the ME4-12. Even with Fiat's backing I don't think we'll ever see any supercars out of Chrysler outside of the already super Viper. Probability: Viper 100% anything else 10%

Ferrari - Nearly everything the make could be considered a supercar 100%

Fiat - Not bloody likely, unless you consider a Italian Miata a supercar (I'm sure some do) 0%

Ford - We've already had one GT, and recently we found out we're getting another one 90%

GMC - Probably not going to happen, but a supercar fighting next gen Scylone would be amazeballs 0%

Holden - On a similar note Holden offers us (and by us I mean exclusively Australians) a 560hp truck, which is kind of an untraditional supercar, but it's on the endangered species list. 0%

Hyundai/KIA - For some reason Hyundai doesn't seem interested in a serious dedicated high performance car. We got the Genesis coupe, which is nice, but a safe attempt at making an enthusiast car. You'd think they wouldn't be more likely make one now that they have $60k sedans with 430hp V8s. Probability 25%

Infiniti - A couple years ago Infiniti showed off an electric supercar concept, and there was a rumor that it could be produced. Lately it seems as though Nissan is playing safe, so the outlook is dim 20%

Jaguar - Jaguar is like that friend who says they're too broke to go out and have any fun by refusing to produce their beautiful CX-75. At least we've got their F Type R which is pretty sweet. Probability: something other than the F Type R 30%

Jeep - The closest thing to a supercar out of Jeep has been the SRT Cherokee, will we ever get a Hellcat Cherokee? I'd say 60% chance.

Lamborghini - Nope no supercars here... 100%

Lexus - The LFA was a bold move in the supercar department, the rumor has it they'll follow it up with a 600hp coupe. 50%

Lincoln - Lincoln refuses to make a rwd car, I think a supercar is out of the question. A long low and black Lincoln coupe with a big V8 would be pretty super though 5%

Advertisement

Lotus - The Exige is arguably a supercar, but I still wish one of the Bahar could have been made. A new Esprit with super/turbocharged Lexus 5.0 would have been really cool. Probability: something beyond the Exige S 40%

Maserati - Maserati is no stranger to supercars with their old MC12. We're supposed to get a sportier replacement for the Gran Turismo, rumor was that it would even be mid engined with a turbo six. There hasn't been any news on the at lately, so we'll have to wait and see. Probability 70%

Mazda - The Furai was a great supercar concept, but Mazda can't even bring itself to make an RX7 (or new Mazdaspeed3 for that matter) so I don't think we can count on any supercars from them. 10%

McLaren - duh 100%

Mercedes - Mercedes seems to be on a downward trend when it comes to supercars. First we got the crazy expensive SLR, then the more reasonable SLS, and now the downright pedestrian AMG GT. An AMG GT Black Series would be a fine super car, but I still find myself wishing to see a dedicated production mid-engined Mercedes (the CLK GTR was not a dedicated supercar) Probability: AMG GT Black 90%

Mitsubishi - They can't even keep the EVO alive, much less support a higher performance coupe. As much as enthusiast would like to see a new 3000GT, it's not going to happen 0%

Advertisement

Nissan - Nissan's got the GTR which can beat just about any supercar so It's hard to justify anything else. Probability: 100%

Opel/Vauxhall - I can't see these brand with anything outside some rebadged Holdens or hot hatches 0%

Advertisement

Peugeot - Another one of those brands who likes to show off sporty concepts yet flat out refuses to make anything remotely high performance. 5%

Porsche - We've gotten several supercars from Porsche, not least of which the current 918. 100%

Renault - A couple years ago Renault's Alpine sportscar seemed like a sure thing. Lately it's looking pretty doubtful, which is unfortunate because it's nice to look at. 40%

Subaru - Subaru shows no signs of suddenly making a supercar, but it's fun to picture what one would look like. A lightweight mid-engine car with a cranked up STI drivetrain would be pretty awesome. Probability 0%

Advertisement

Toyota - We don't know too much about the upcoming Supra, so it's hard to gauge just how super it will be (if it comes out at all). My guess is that it will have six cylinders and a hybrid system with anywhere from 400-550hp. Probability 50%

Volkswagen - For such a big car maker with so many models it's amazing that VW doesn't really have any true sportscars. Sure there's the Sirocco and Corrado, neither of which were traditional sportscars. Many years ago VW showed us what looked like a production ready Nardo concept, and more recently we got a Ducati powered XL1. The chances that VW will actually make anything are pretty low. Probability 20%

Volvo - I don't think we'll ever see a Volvo supercar, but it would be pretty glorious if it existed. An inline six hybrid awd that looks like their recent coupe concept would be neat. 0%

Any Chinese/Indian/Etc brand - So far we haven't seen anything too ambitious with up and coming Asian brands. It would a big statement if one of these players stepped forward with a competent super car though. Probability 30%
