These Are the Coolest Naturally Aspirated Cars You Can Buy Today

Car and Driver Logo By Connor Hoffman of Car and Driver | Slide 1 of 11: Turbochargers and superchargers are proliferating rapidly throughout the industry, necessary addenda to today’s ever-shrinking, more-fuel-efficient engines that help maintain useful power levels. Okay, in some cases, forced induction is used to pile on additional horsepower - and we’re mighty okay with that. But there still is something to a performance car with a naturally aspirated engine, even if few such engines can match the latest forced-induction powerplants. There’s the raw, organic power - not to mention the sound, unmuffled by turbos or tinged with a whistling supercharger. Some companies, such as McLaren and BMW, have abandoned natural aspiration altogether. Even Ferrari and Honda, who are historically known for high-revving, naturally aspirated engines, have all but ditched them entirely. So, in praise of fading high-performance natural aspiration, we’ve compiled a list of the most exciting, best sounding, and most powerful naturally aspirated cars you can still buy today. Some of these cars’ engines are available in multiple models, so we’ve picked our favorites. Get ‘em while they last!
