Whether you're a fan of domestics or imports, 2008 is shaping up to be an amazing year if you like performance cars.
On the domestic side, we're seeing the launch of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 620-hp supercharged dynamo that will be introduced later this summer. Dodge has unveiled the production version of its Brampton-built Challenger - and it's packing a 425-hp, 6.1-litre Hemi V8 with attendant exhaust rumble. Ford's officially on the fence about whether the Shelby GT500KR Mustang will be available in Canada, but I know of at least one dealer that's already taking orders.
The imports have an equally exciting story to tell. The big headliner this year is Nissan's 485-hp GT-R, a Godzilla of a car that should make life for Porsche's 911 Turbo very interesting indeed. But there's also the latest iteration of BMW's awesome M3 (this time with 414 hp of V8 power); Audi's car-of-the-year R8 and turbocharged TTS; Porsche's Cayenne GTS, Mercedes' McLaren SLR Roadster and other toys.
They're all here at the autoshow, waiting for you to drool all over them.
