>Which are the best luxury sports cars you should drive in 2021? We have compiled a list of our top picks to help you make the decision with ease.
Combining uncompromised engineering with a high degree of care for its discerning customers, luxury sports cars leave little to compromise.
Some sports cars are bare-bones performance machines stripped of all but driving essentials, like the Ariel Atom, Caterham 7, or the Lotus Elise. Cars like Toyota’s GR Supra hold the middle ground but are still more on the comfortable side, whereas luxury sports cars are a whole different ball game.
Luxury does come in many forms. Some of it has to do with the luxury sports car brand’s strength, but in all honesty, it has more to do with comfort and ample use of high-quality materials and components.
Next, there’s also technology and all the little things that make every drive an indulgent experience. For some, it’s also the ability to personalize your car to the tiniest detail. Finally, when you add performance to each of these traits, what you’re getting is a superb luxury sports car, and these ten are among the best vehicles on the market in 2021.
1. Porsche 911 GT3 Touring
Let’s start with sports cars fundamentals embodied in the most iconic sports cars silhouette ever created. The venerable 911 is a luxury sports car staple, and the GT3 Touring is just a perfectly mixed cocktail of convenience, style, and performance. So, what makes the all-new 992-generation Porsche 911 GT3 Touring the ultimate luxury sports car?

First off, its naturally aspirated 502-horsepower 4.0-liter flat-six powerful engine revs up to 9,000 RPM, just like inside a regular GT3. Next, it’s packed inside a sleek wingless body, losing on downforce but winning big in style. There’s more, as Porsche offers it with a six-speed manual transmission as a no-cost option, provided that you don’t live in California where it’s available only with an 8-speed PDK.
Finally, instead of Alcantara, the Touring features extensive leather upholstery with a strong emphasis on fulfilling custom orders. This unique blend of enthusiast-pleasing features makes the 911 GT3 the most versatile 911 on the market, hence the epitome of a luxury sports car.
2. Lexus LC 500
To many, Lexus’ design is hard to digest, especially its spindle grille reminiscent of a Predator jaw. But, there’s something highly respectable about the way Lexus executed the looks of the LC 500 coupé, sculpting what is perhaps the most dynamic grand tourer on the market. Contrasting the bold exterior, the interior of this sports coupé is elegant and restrained, typical of modern-day Lexus.
When it comes to character, the LC 500 is powered by a 471-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 powering the rear wheels through a 10-speed Direct-Shift automatic with magnesium paddle shifters.
The interior of this luxury car offers caramel or black leather upholstery with Alcantara headliner and door card inserts, or should one opt for the Sport package, firm-hugging seats wrapped in red leather and Alcantara.
This trim isn’t just a gimmick though, as the Lexus LC 500 also gets a Torsen limited-slip rear differential and Yamaha performance dampers and an optional carbon-fiber roof, transforming the grand tourer into a more capable front-engined V8 sports car.
3. BMW M4 Competition
We’re continuing the best luxury sports cars by sticking to the ‘controversial front end’ theme, but this time from BMW and its new sports coupé, the M4. Powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six and with extensive options, the M4 Competition could be specified to be an all-out track monster or a highly capable luxurious car.
Moreover, suppose the standard palette of high impact colors isn’t enough. In that case, BMW Individual offers a host of exclusive shades, including five ‘frozen’ finishes, enabling prospective owners to stand out of the crowd even more. However, suppose the owner of this luxury vehicle is inclined towards sheer speed. In that case, the M Performance is there with forged wheels, coilover suspension, titanium exhaust, and many, many more.
