Fastest Cars in Our Rankings

You’re never too old to have a wish list. For some, that list is dominated by exceptionally fast cars. There are more than a handful of truly special machines, capable of carving up a track or blowing the doors off the competition in a straight line.

U.S. News & World Report has compiled a list of the fastest cars in the world. In actuality, these are the fastest cars in U.S. News’ rankings. This is important, because some of these are all realistic and potentially-attainable cars (I have to write just a few thousand more articles to afford that new Porsche 911).

Speed, in this case, is determined by zero-to-60 mph times. That said, performance comes in many forms, and many of the vehicles on this list also exhibit fantastic cornering abilities. Cars like the Porsche 911 and the redesigned, mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette are well-rounded driving machines that are actually within reach, compared to most exotic super- and hypercars.
