Several race modified cars in GT5 gave me an inspiration of this thread: If a car 'evolves', what will it be?
You can use an evolutionary chain to describe multiple cars(like Porsche 911 - Porsche 930 - Porsche 935/78).
The cars don't need to be a same series or even the same make(the Lamborghini Diablo evolves into Cizeta V16T).
You can either start with the evolved car and work through its devolutions or do the other way round. The latter is recommended as it can make various evolution routes(You can even try an Eeevolution, who knows :))


what a long strange trip
United States
Sooo, something like a Lotus Esprit evolves into a Lamborghini Diablo. Or a Ford Ranger evolves into an F150 into an f250 into an f350, but a Ford ranger that gets a dune stone evolves into a Raptor...


I want to be monkey
Well, you could say that the McLaren Senna is a mega-evolution of the 720S... The McLaren GT and the Speedtail are just alternate evolutions, whilst the 765 is the evolution of the 720S.

Here are some other evolution lines:
Ford Mustang GT - Ford Mustang GT350 - Ford Mustang GT500
Ford Focus - Ford Focus ST - Ford Focus RS
Ferrari 458 - Ferrari 488 - Ferrari F8 Tributo
Camaro SS - Camaro ZL1 - Camaro ZL1 1LE Package
BMW 318d - BMW 330i - BMW M3
Mercedes C230 - Mercedes C43 - Mercedes C63
Aston Martin DB9 - Aston Martin DBS - Aston Martin Vanquish

And then you have the legendaries:
Bugatti Chiron 300+
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
Ferrari FXX-K
McLaren P1 GTR
Hennessey Venom
SSC Ultimate Aero
Bugatti Veyron
McLaren F1
Aston Martin Valkyrie
United Kingdom
Wreckage, Turn 1
Here are some I came up with:

By Manufacturer:
Mini Cooper S - Mini Cooper S JCW - Mini Cooper S JCW GP
Toyota Yaris GR Sport - Toyota Yaris GRMN - Toyota Yaris WRC (2019)
Ford Fiesta R2 Rally car - Ford Fiesta R5 - Ford Fiesta WRC
Porsche 911 GT3 - Porsche 911 GT3 Cup - Porsche 911 GT3 R

By theme
Suzuki Swift Sport - Ford Fiesta ST - Toyota Yaris GR4 (Rally-inspired B-Segment hatchbacks)
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider - Ferrari 488 GTB - Ferrari SF90 Stradale (Italian midships)
Audi RSQ3 Sportback - Audi RSQ8 - Lamborghini Urus (Performance SUV Coupes)

Your second approach is great, keep it up! Maybe it should be the topic of this post after all.
Here are my suggestions:
Racing Kart - Ariel Atom - F1 race car(Single seater race car)
The kart is pretty meh in stats, but upon evolution, it becomes much stronger. The evolved form, the Atom, is powerful car by itself, but it can evolve into an F1 race car. If so, what would you expect?
Mazda MX-5 ND - Jaguar F-Type(Roadster)
The MX-5 is inspired by an Elan, so its partially justified. Upon evolution it keeps its handling characteristics with a noticable boost in straight line speed.
Volkswagen up! - Renaultsport Twingo 133 Trophy - Abarth 595 SS(A-Segment hatchback)
The up! is slow, about Sunday Cup slow(thankfully, it is pretty far from being the slowest). The Twingo doesn't improve on speed, but it has noticably better handling. The 595 Esseesse(or SS) combines this with a high top speed for a city car.
Austin Healey 'Bugeye' Sprite - Triumph TR4A - Jaguar E-Type S2 V12(Classic British roadsters)
The Bugeye has great handling despite its terrible speed. The TR4A handles well, but has noticable improvements in straight line speed. The E-Type handles worse than the Triumph, but gains a massive boost in acceleration and top speed(engine power is more than doubled). Sorta like the relationship between Torracat and Incineroar from Gen 7(Torracat ironically has a higher speed rating than Incineroar, despite it being Incineroar's pre-evolved form)

About Rallywagon -
The first suggestion(Lotus Esprit - Lamborghini Diablo) was great, maybe we can put the first post(mine) and the second post(yours) together to make a 3-stage Evolution tree(Lotus Esprit - Lamborghini Diablo - Cizeta V16T, wedge supercars)
The Esprit is a great all-rounder. The Diablo is noticably faster than the Esprit despite a small setback in handling. The V16T is immensely fast in a straight line, but gives up even more handling performance.
The second suggestion(Ford Ranger - Ford F150 - Ford Super Duty(or perhaps the F150 Raptor), Ranger bypass Evolution by use of a special kit) wasn't bad, but there is a better idea; Regional forms(first introduced in Gen 7). The Ranger Raptor is not available in the US, so the US form of this car evolves into a F150, while other forms evolve into the Ranger Raptor. The bigger the truck, the stronger it is off-road, at a cost of on-road performance. Upon reaching the final stage, the US version is better than the ROW version off-road, at a cost of much of its on-road performance.
