The 10 Best Cars, According To Reddit

The Fast & Furious film series might have taken the espionage highway lately but cars are still a big part of the proceedings, with Dom and his ‘family’ often needing cool rides to chase after baddies, flee from them or conduct heists. In earlier movies, plenty of incredible cars appeared in race scenes too.

Over the course of 2 decades, the ‘family’ members have placed their hands on the steering wheels of both expensive supercars as well as affordable rides. But which of the cars have truly been outstanding? Since there are dozens of awesome automobiles, picking only a few can be challenging. Luckily, Redditors have pointed at a few notable ones.

Dodge Charger R/T

DLuz0215 proudly declares, “The most known/iconic car from the entire franchise is Dom’s 1970 black Dodge Charger.” The car features in every movie Dom appears in.

No fictional character has a better knowledge of cars than Dom and the fact that he keeps using the Charger says a lot about its reliability. With its top speed of 155 mph and acceleration of 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds, it’s never a surprise whenever Dom keeps up with jets while on the road. And as someone who is ever tough, the popular muscle car suits Dom more than any other model.

Nissan Skyline R34
Brian makes a bridge jump in his Nissan Skyline in 2 Fast 2 Furious

Dotdotman1 says the best ride is “Bryan’s car at the start of 2 Fast 2 Furious,” with uchiha-gohan adding, “That’s my favorite too. I drive it on Forza every time I log on.” The specific car being talked about is the Nissan Skyline R34.

Suki, Slap Jack, and Orange Julius can testify to the R34’s brilliance as, despite their best efforts, Brian easily defeats them during the race organized by Tej. Thanks to its 165 mph speed, the car has no difficulty becoming airborne for a couple of minutes either.  And audiences can agree that were it not for Agent Markham firing an ESD harpoon at it, Brian would have never been caught.

Flip Car

Owen Shaw and Vegh drive incredible flip cars during the London pursuit and Redditor jwood14521 heavily roots for them. They write, “Four-wheel steering, a formula 1 engine, a 6-speed manual, and a straight piped exhaust??? That sounds like a riot to drive.”

Undoubtedly the most unique ride in the franchise, the Flip Car reminds fans of both the Batmobile and the many great machines used in Grand Prix competitions. Thanks to its front ramp, the car is a moving weapon, able to flip most cars it comes into contact with. Even though both cars get destroyed, their aesthetic awesomeness makes them impossible to forget,

1995 Toyota Supra MK IV
Brian's final scene in his Toyota Supra in Furious 7

Regarding the best cars, IcemaanN mentions “Brian’s Supra from the end of 7.” Brian drives the Supra before he and Dom take different routes at a crossroads.

Just as Dom loves the Charger, Brian loves the Supra. In the first movie, he uses an orange 1994 model of the same car. However, the white Supra is remembered fondly by fans because of its emotional aspect. It’s in it that Paul Walker is seen for the last time. The car used in the movie actually belonged to Paul Walker too, marking the only time a major actor’s personal car was used during filming.

1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Sean prepares to race in his 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in Tokyo Drift

In Tokyo Drift, Sean drives the Monte Carlo during a race with Clay and wins. This Redditor comments, “The Monte Carlo is definitely my favorite.”

The race scene in the movie proves that the Monte Carlo is a car not to be underestimated. Despite it only being able to reach speeds of 129 mph, it gets the better of Clay’s Dodge Viper which can accelerate up to 206. Part of that has to do with Sean’s driving skills, though Clay isn’t badly off either.

2011 Lexus LFA
Han and Gisele head to Berlin at the end of Fast Five

After the successful $100 million Rio heist, everyone gets to enjoy their cut. Han is seen speeding with Gisele in the LFA as they head to Berlin. Redditor hellsbellltrudy describes it as “the best luxury car in the series for sure.”

The LFA’s top speed of 202 mph means Han could bring it with him to missions if he wanted. When the speed is factored in, Han’s decision to globetrot using a car makes more sense. The Redditor is also right about it being the best luxury car since it’s the only one that Han thinks of after making the most money in his life.

1969 Yenko Camaro SYC
Brian's Yenko Camaro dives to Veron's boat in 2 Fast 2 Furious

NotTheRocketman says “2F2F is in some rarified air for that Yenko alone. That is an exquisitely rare car.”In the movie, Brian acquires the car from one of Carter Veron’s henchmen after winning a bet.

What makes the Camaro iconic is its involvement in arguably one of the best Fast & Furious stunts where Brian and Roman drive off a pier and crash into Carter Veron’s luxury boat in an effort to save Monica Fuentes. Given how fast the car moves in the scene, it’s very likely that the Camaro reached its top speed of 140 mph. Sadly, it gets damaged, and getting a new one isn’t easy since only a few cars were ever produced.

2018 Noble M600
Magdalene steals a Noble M600 in London in Fast 9

Redditor feels there are many great cars but Queenie’s “purple Noble M600” from Fast 9 is truly among the best ones. In the movie, Deckard’s mother drives the M600 as she flees from the police after stealing jewelry from a shop in New Bond Street, London.

Queenie’s car is indeed noble. Since it’s beautiful, hand-built, and has an unrivaled top speed of 225 mph, it’s also one of the most expensive Fast & Furious cars. Those seeking to acquire it have to fork out $250,000. It’s, therefore, no shocker that the only way any character gets to acquire it is by stealing it.

1966 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray
Letty pursues a rogue Dom in Fast & Furious

According to dzz07, another car that ought to be placed among the elite is “Letty’s 66 corvette in Fate Of The Furious.” Letty picks the Corvette from the Toy Store before modifying it and using it during the New York chase.

The C2 deserves credit for being the only car that almost manages to stop Dom when he goes rogue. While driving the classic car, Letty manages to get close enough to harpoon the main character. The 140 mph speed helps, but so do Letty’s driving skills and the car’s all-around performance. Regrettably, it gets damaged.

1993 Honda Civic EJ1
Dom's team conducts a DVD truck heist in Fast & Furious

In the first movie, Dom and Letty lay their trust on Honda Civics during truck heists. Redditor londonbluesox simply labels the car “a winner.”

Thanks to the Civic’s reliability, fans get to see some of the best Fast & Furious heist scenes. Compared to other cars in the franchise, the civic is quite slow (108mph). However, the area in which it trumps the rest is stability. Truck heists, as seen in the movies, require more than just speed and the Civic mostly remains stable while Dom and his crew load the DVD players.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.
