Thinking that 2024 is the year you’re going to finally get that supercar you’ve been dreaming of for ages? Below are the trending supercars in Texas right now, along with what you’ll pay, both to buy and maintain each of the options to give you some inspiration.

Porsche 911 Turbo (2023)

One of the hottest supercars in Texas right now, the 2023 Porsche 911 Turbo will set you back from $182,900 for the standard model or $216,100 for the Turbo S version. With its 3.7 liter six-cylinder engine, eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, alloy wheels, heated front seats, and mighty twelve-speaker Bose sound speaker, it’s no surprise that, despite the steep price, this supercar is so popular.

When it comes to maintenance, experts generally agree that the Porsche 911 Turbo – now the star of many video games –  is a pretty good option as far as supercars are concerned. Plus, when buying new, you’ll receive an impressive three-year unlimited mileage cover. However, bear in mind that, as with every supercar, standard services won’t be cheap. Expect to pay around $800 for an intermediate service and $1,000 for a major service to keep it running as smoothly as possible.

Audi R8 Coupe (2023)

Audi is known for building beautiful, high-performance cars, and the R8 Coupe does nothing to buck this trend. This model has a powerful V10 engine, a gorgeously designed interior, and handles like a dream. The basic model costs around $160,000, while the limited edition version has a price tag of around $253,000.

With adaptive suspension as standard, the Audi R8 Coupe offers a comfortable ride on most surfaces, and corners exceptionally smoothly. It’s also surprisingly practical for a supercar, with a generous amount of storage space, and it scores highly for both reliability and safety. And maintenance costs? On average, you can expect to pay around $3,000 a year in services and general maintenance to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster (2023)

This model from Aston Martin was launched with great anticipation last year and has become one of the top trending supercars in Texas and beyond. Its 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine makes this the most powerful Vantage Roadster to date: it goes from zero to sixty in just 3.5 seconds. There’s plenty of clever tech incorporated into this vehicle, too: steering is calibrated to driver engagement, while adaptive software within the transmission control system keeps a virtual eye on operating conditions to preempt driver demands. You’ll pay between $146,986 and $301,826 for the Roadster, depending on the type and level of personalization you opt for.

But what about the maintenance needs of the 2023 Vantage Roadster? The good news is that Aston Martins are notoriously reliable. However, this is a supercar, so you’ll pay around $800 to $1,200 for a service to keep your vehicle in great condition.

Maserati MC20 (2021)

Launched in 2021, the Maserati MC20 has already built a strong and loyal fanbase. The car boasts a three-liter V6 engine, a top speed of over two hundred mph, butterfly doors, and a strikingly stylish aesthetic both inside and out. The interior is resplendent in leather and carbon fiber, and there’s a minimalist vibe when it comes to buttons and switches. A large digital cluster and touchscreen display are used to control most of the car’s functions, and this model of Maserati was the first to feature the optional Sonus Faber High-Premium Audio System. You’ll pay from around $217,000 to $250,000 to get your hands on the MC20.

The three-year warranty offers reassurance to potential buyers regarding maintenance costs, and an extended five-year warranty is also available. It costs around $700 for a basic service and $1,300 for a major service.

Can I Get Insurance for My Supercar?

If you’re thinking about purchasing a supercar, it’s important to check what you’ll pay in terms of car insurance. Always find out exactly what your car insurance in Texas covers – while regular car insurance policies typically provide a wide range of protections, they probably won’t cover your supercar as standard. However, providers may be willing to put together a policy for you, although this is likely to come at a significant price, as insurance providers generally view insuring supercars as a risky business. Some insurer providers specialize in insuring supercar and exotic vehicles, and these are worth considering, too. In either case, shopping around is vital, to get the best deal.

Unfortunately, insuring a supercar is expensive but is essential. In most cases, you’ll pay a few thousand dollars a year for this vital protection.
