Drifting Through 2019
With 2019 now well underway, there’s only one question on our lips, isn’t there? What drift car can we expect to see on the market this year?
Whether you’re just curious or looking to buy, it’s always good to know what’s out there. Where would you be if you missed the release of your soul-car? Up the road without a way to get home, that’s where.
The good news is that there are some fantastic releases to look out for this year. This selection is so good, in fact, that anyone looking to invest in any of these should keep the number of a car insurer and car accident lawyer to hand.
All the better for ensuring that no damage ever comes to your dream drift car. But, just what are the vehicles you can expect to see, and why are they worth your time?
2019 Toyota Supra
The last generation of Toyota’s Supra left our markets an astounding sixteen years ago. But, 2019 spells good news for Supra fans.
This summer marks the release of an all-new version of this classic drift car. With a twin turbo 2JZ GTE and a rear wheel drive, you can bet you’ll see some pretty badass drift from this baby. Even better, the styling on this release is to die for, with definite nods to the F1 cars we know and love.
Even better, Toyota is turning its prowess into making sure this release is available in their boldest colors. All the better for ensuring that you stand out on the road. Admittedly, this option isn’t for the faint of heart. But, if you have a mean $50,920 floating around, it could be for you.
2019 Kia Stinger GT
Typically, Kia isn’t a brand we reach for when it comes to drift cars. Still, their Stinger GT, set for release at a base price of $32,900, is continuing the Stinger’s drifting prowess.
While there’s no date for this option, rumors suggest production will start during the summer. So, with a bit of luck, it won’t be too long. In truth, this release doesn’t need much doing to it to improve on what the Stinger already offers.
It seems there will just be a few spec changes. Still, anyone who follows the SEMA show will know too well that this is a drift release to look out for.
2019 Mazda Miata (MX-5)
Any fan of drifting will be familiar with the iconic Mazda Miata. As it stands, this is one of the best beginner drift cars out there. But, it’s already had a major revamp this year. By investing in one of these, you can expect to see an engine power boost of around 26 horsepower, as well as rear cameras.
And, coming in around the $25,000 to $27,000 range, this is the most affordable option on our list. Even better, a release date of late last year means you should already be able to find a Miata in a garage near you.
