Pair of Hybrids Among 'Cars We Can't Wait to Drive in 2005'
We've put last year's top cars in the rearview mirror. Let's look ahead to the cars we can't wait to drive in 2005 -- to the mountains, on racetracks, in deserts, across New England's most tortuous roads, to and from Boston in a workday commute. So much secrecy surrounds some new models that we can't get pictures of them. Yet details do leak, so let's fire up, in no particular order, these enticing rides:
CHEVROLET CORVETTE Z06 The new Corvette, already devoid of those horrible pop-up headlights and looking distinctly Italian, gets a major power boost with a reported 500-plus horsepower coming from a 7.0-liter V-8. No official word yet on pricing, but you can bet it will be one of the most affordable supercars, capable of approaching 190 miles per hour and faster, on the planet.
FORD MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE The new Mustang GT was one of the finest cars I drove last year -- and that's $24,000 to $28,000 up against nearly half a million dollars for certain supercars. I can't wait to drive it with the top down, say over New Hampshire's Kancamagus Highway.
