World’s Fastest Production Cars Since 1949
By Year: (Successively by Top Speed)
It’s very interesting to note the huge gap between 1968-1984. Remember that the 1970s was the auto manufacturer’s nemesis. With ridiculously stringent USA emissions and safety standards imposed upon them, they scrambled just to keep up-and that left the top speed issue a moot point. They just wanted to sell cars in the Untied States and stay alive…Some automakers did neither-Renault, Triumph, MG, Fiat, AMC to name a few.
