The car world is changing at a rapid pace. A few years ago, hybrids were niche cars, and it was controversial when a sports car lost a manual transmission option or switched from a V8 to a V6. Today, it looks like many automakers may phase out internal combustion entirely in short order.

Some of our favorite gas-swizzling automotive icons will need to adapt to survive. And for most of them, “adapt” will mean more than a token hybrid option.

Here are 10 cool cars that are strong bets to go electric before the end of the decade.

Chevrolet Corvette

GM has pledged to sell only zero-emission vehicles by 2035, which means the Corvette would have to go electric to survive (unless they find a workaround). An electric Corvette SUV and the radical, automatic-only redesign of the current C8 should prime the way for a blisteringly fast Corvette EV at some point.
