Coupes

In 2008, when the price of gasoline broke past $4 a gallon for the first time, many drivers started to question the wisdom of owning a large vehicle—especially when most of the time, we travel solo (all too often stuck in traffic). Suddenly, two-seater cars, compacts, and subcompacts started looking like a smart move. Gas prices will continue to go up and down, but the appeal of a growing list of gas-powered, hybrid, and all-electric coupes is here to stay. At the other end of the spectrum, the premium EV and hybrid market is beginning to explode with models like the Lexus LC500h and BMW i8 and hybrid versions of iconic performance cars like the Ford Mustang and Porsche 911 expected to arrive in the coming years, and the Tesla Roadster set to return.
