The government scrappage incentive has ended and this will have a negative impact on sales of cars in 1997. However, the industry believes that the sales will still be around 100,000-110,000 units, largely due to cheap finance. Retail incentives such as zero percent finance, free road tax, and insurance will keep the market buoyant. The new Opel factory will be open in September.

The Toyota Camry was a popular vehicle with its smooth V6 engine, and smooth-shifting transmission. Although slightly more expensive than the predecessor, the 1997 version offered better handling and reliability. Another popular car in 1997 was the Porsche Boxster, the company’s first roadster in nearly two decades. This car was inspired by the Spyder from 1950s.

Although the Xsara VTS is smaller than the Peugeot 306 GTI-6, it offers similar thrills. The Fiat Seicento, which succeeded the Fiat Cinquecento, continued the trend of tiny dimensions.

The Lotus GTL was built in 1996 and was a fan favorite. It raced in many IMSA events as well as FIA GT championship races. The Elise GT1 was built to replace the Lotus GTL. It featured a different engine and was more affordable for customer teams. It won the 1997 Manufacturers’ Title.

The second year of the GT championship saw the debut of the new FIA GT1 and the fourth generation of the Harrier GT1. Richard Austin, the new owner, wanted to increase power and downforce. These improvements would allow the GT1 to compete more aggressively at the GT championship. Despite its early introduction, the GT championship would not be won until the end of the year.

Another affordable American-made sedan is the Ford Contour. The Contour comes with a choice between four-cylinder and double-overhead camshaft engines, and it offers anti-lock braking and four-wheel disc brakes. It is also available for less than $20,000, which makes it a great value for money.
