A supercar is a luxury, high-performance sports car or grand tourer.[1][2] The term is used in marketing by automakers for unusual and expensive vehicles, and has been used to refer to different sorts of cars:

  • Limited-production specials from an "elite" automaker[3]
  • Standard-looking cars modified for power and performance[3]
  • Models from smaller manufacturers that appeal to enthusiasts[3]
  • One-of-a-kind "showcase" project vehicles built by custom car retrofitters (usually extensively modified collectible muscle cars or grand tourers updated to the latest "streetable" racing technology).[4][5]

History[edit]

An advertisement for the Ensign 6, a 6.7 L (410 cu in) high-performance car similar to the Bentley Speed Six, appeared in The Times for 11 November 1920 with the phrase "If you are interested in a supercar, you cannot afford to ignore the claims of the Ensign 6."[6] The Oxford English Dictionary also cites the use of the word in an advertisement for an unnamed car in The Motor dated 3 November 1920, "The Supreme development of the British super-car."[7] and defines the phrase as suggesting "a car superior to all others". A book published by the Research Institute of America in 1944, that previewed the economic and industrial changes to occur after World War II,[8] used the term "supercar" (author's emphasis) to describe future automobiles incorporating advances in design and technology such as flat floorpans and automatic transmissions.[9]

In the United States, the term "supercar" predates the classification of muscle car.[10][11] It describes the "dragstrip bred" affordable mid-size cars of the 1960s and early 1970s that were equipped with large, powerful V8 engines and rear wheel drive.[12] The term was often (though not always) spelled with a capital S.[13] The combination of a potent engine in a lightweight car began with the 1957 Rambler Rebel that was described as a "veritable supercar".[14] "In 1966 the sixties supercar became an official industry trend"[15] as the four domestic automakers "needed to cash in on the supercar market" with eye-catching, heart-stopping cars.[16] Among the numerous examples of the use of the supercar description include the May 1965 issue of the American magazine Car Life, in a road test of the Pontiac GTO, as well as how "Hurst puts American Motors into the Supercar club with the 390 Rogue"[17] (the SC/Rambler) to fight in "the Supercar street racer gang" market segment.[18] The "SC" in the model name stood for "SuperCar".[19] The supercar market segment included regular production models[20] in different muscle market segments (such as the "economy supercar"[21]), as well as limited edition, documented dealer-converted vehicles.[22]

The word supercar later came to mean a "GT" or grand touring type of car.[23] By the 1970s and 1980s the phrase was in regular use, if not precisely defined.[24][25]

During the late 20th century, the term supercar was used to describe "a very expensive, fast or powerful car with a centrally located engine",[1] and stated in more general terms: "it must be very fast, with sporting handling to match", "it should be sleek and eye-catching" and its price should be "one in a rarefied atmosphere of its own".[26]

The supercar term has also been applied to technologically advanced vehicles using new fuel sources, powerplants, aerodynamics, and lightweight materials to develop an 80 mpg‑US (2.9 L/100 km; 96 mpg‑imp) family-sized sedan.[27] "Supercar" was the unofficial description for the United States Department of Commerce R&D program, Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV).[28] The program was established in 1993 to support the domestic U.S. automakers (GM, Ford, and Chrysler) develop prototypes of a safe, clean, affordable car the size of the Ford Taurus, but delivering three times the fuel efficiency.[28][29]

Hypercar[edit]

Porsche 918 Spyder, a plug-in hybrid that popularized the hypercar term along with the LaFerrari and P1

A hypercar is an elite iteration of a supercar, in which it is faster, quicker, more expensive, and rarer.[citation needed] Sometimes, these cars are vastly customisable, for example, the Bugatti Veyron and the Bugatti Chiron.[30]

The first use of the name was from the Veyron.[citation needed] The term became largely popularized after the release of the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and the McLaren P1.
