Concept cars often become a reality, but which are the cars from 2010 and 2011 that are most likely to make a production run in the near future?Here we look at the cars you might just be seeing in a dealership near you.
content=”Few cars have left an audience as stunned as the Porsche 918 concept did at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. And while the Porsche was an engineering and aesthetically pleasing triumph, we didn’t know if the Bavarian marque would ever put it into production — turns out, they will. Praise the lord!
While the amazing power plant we saw at Geneva won’t make production, the design will — probably. As long as Porsche doesn’t mess about with the 918’s original design blueprint, everyone on the planet will be buying one — even if they’re as broke as MC Hammer.
Expect 200mph+, 0-62mph in way less than 3.8 seconds and a big grin on the driver’s face. Whenever the limited run hits the streets, it will be one of the rarest and most exclusive cars Porsche has ever made. Let’s hope they don’t mess this one up, eh?

content=”Concepts are often intricate and are rarely simple, but when Ferrari unleashed the Monza concept, the whole world took note. What is it? Erm…well…
So, it’s a little odd, but could it ever hit production basis? Perhaps if Batman fancied getting wild one day in 2045, this could be the perfect car/thing for him. Apparently, the Monza’s shape is dictated by aerodynamics — which, as we all know, is what is necessary for ultimate performance and economy.
Ferrari and concepts can be a little jaded with regards to vision, but boldness isn’t an aspect the Italian marque struggles with.

content=”Lotus are ambitions, and despite the Norfolk company’s Malaysian ownership with Proton, it has insisted its ethos is still ‘lightness is everything’. Whether or not that is true, Lotus has announced several cars that we’re expecting to hit production in the next few years — with the Lotus Esprit Concept being one of them.
Unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show, the Esprit looked as good as it gets. With performance figures that look more promising than any Lotus before it, everyone is getting excited about the prospect of a 21st Century Esprit.
If they pull it off, the Esprit will be an epic sports car and would mark a return to a name that was revered for so many years. But with such an ambitious project with several high-end cars, wil

content=”Last year’s Lamborghini Elemento Concept blew every petrolhead out of the water. With looks that were as seducing as Medusa and performance figures that even Roadrunner would be envious of, the Sesto Elemento was as mouth-watering as it was fast.
What made it even better was that Lamborghini promised this was the base for the new Murcielago replacement, the Aventador. And, as we all know, the new car has just been revealed, and as promised, it didn’t disappoint.
Using the Elemento as a base for innovative technology, the use of lightweight materials and high performance engine technology shows that Lamborghini isn’t scared of pushing the boundaries.

content=”Right, let’s get one thing straight from the outset, the original Audi Quattro was epic in a way that few road cars have been before. The four-wheel drive monster became as instant cult classic, and when Audi unveiled the Quattro Concept last year, the whole motoring world paused, and then became instantly aroused.
The word on the street is that Audi plans to put the Quattro into a small limited number production, and if they do, they’re sure to sell every single one in just days — especially if they keep the looks from the concept.
Come on, Audi, do the right thing and get the hammers and spanners out. We promise to buy one. Honest.
