Jan 02, 2017 05:30 AM EST | Ed Saludes

The year 2016 saw the releases of impressive car models such as Ford Focus RS, Aston Martin DB11, and Fiat 124 Spider. The year ahead promises new models ranging from family hatchbacks and crossovers to sports cars and hypercars. Let's take a look at some of the 2017 cars worth waiting for.

These 2017 cars are widely circulated and discussed in internet forums and automobile-centric social media pages. It takes two to three years before these cars are released. But there were hints of their structural integrity, fuel economy, features, and other mind-blowing specs.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio was revealed at the LA Motor Show in November 2016. It features an eight-speed auto box and 2.2-liter diesel. The SUV will lead the brand's charge in the U.S. The company aims to sell 400,000 units by the end of 2018.

The Ford GT is another hotly-awaited supercar. The road car boasts of a turbocharged V6 engine, a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox, and an outlandish aero. The U.S. automaker is also releasing the 2017 car models of the Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus RS500.

The pre-order frenzy surrounding Tesla Model 3 is mind-blowing. However, Tesla Motors might launch this EV in 2018. This will upset early clients who have forked out $35K as a reservation fee. According to Top Gear, Tesla Model 3 will run up to 215 miles and can start at 62mph in under six seconds.

The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is already sold out. This open-top hypercar has a fiber roof and offers a combined 789bhp V12 engine and 120kW electric motor. This is only allotted for Ferrari's select clients so chances of having one is next to zero.

The Audi brand has several 2017 car models that are must-haves. They include the SUVs Audi Q2 and Q5, the limousine Audi A8, and the Audi A6 Allroad.
