I can remember once upon a time when a stock 300 horsepower sports car was a big deal — and my dad’s generation of drivers could tell you all about how big of a deal it was when V8s made 225 or so horsepower.

Now, those standards are more for compact family cars than they are modern powerhouses — I think it’s a sign that the auto industry is fully recovered and ready to rock the drivers in the United States.

Cars Making 600+ HP:

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z06 – 625 Horsepower
Ford Shelby GT500 – 662 Horsepower
SRT Viper – 640 Horsepower
Bentley Flying Spur – 616 Horsepower
Porsche 918 Spyder – 887 Horsepower
Vehicles Almost There:

Chevrolet Z/28 – 505 Horsepower
Jaguar F-Type R Coupe – 542 Horsepower
Porsche 911 Turbo S – 560 Horsepower
