Although several fine sports vehicles such as the Stutz and the Mercer, were manufactured in this country during the early part of the 20th century, by the 40s the American driving public had been seduced by the Creature Comfortable large land cruisers that Detroit was offering. During WWII, however, our solders got their first taste of the vehicles that Europe had to offer. These cars had been developed because of the type of roads and scarcity of gasoline overseas and therefore were entirely different from what they had left at home. They were much smaller rough riding and could negotiate the many winding roads more easily. That made them fun to drive. Many solders learned to love them and when they returned to America after the war, they yearned to continue the excitement that they had found with many of Europe’s fun to drive open sport automobiles. It was quickly discovered that they were still being offered the status quo from Detroit. This new found demand for these more sporty type cars spurred a drastic increase in imports of foreign cars to meet the needs of these young veterans. The little MG became the hit of the early post war period. Still conservative Detroit didn’t get the message. It wasn’t until a lot of little companies sprang up across the land in the early 50s in an attempt to fulfill this burning demand, that Detroit was finally prodded into making a meager attempt at building a sporty type car. General Motors was the first of the big three to bring out a sports car in 1953 made of the new material fiberglass. By 1955, Ford finally made the big push with an Americanized version of the sports car. That same year, General Motors almost scrapped their entire sports car project, after a bleak production of 590 Corvettes. They made last ditch effort in 1956 by adding a few creature comforts such as roll up windows and a removable hardtop to keep up with the more popular Thunderbird. Just the right amount of creature comforts added to the basic European sports car concept and G.M. had a huge success on their hands. So was born the sports car as defined by American standards. This web site has been established to honor the people and companies who pioneered those early attempts from 1949 to 1957.

American sports cars are known more for their muscle than their handling prowess, but there remains a subset of high performance heavy metal in the U.S. that has been designed not just to blow up dyno charts but also scarf down a road course without breaking a sweat.

This page is a compilation of sports cars, roadsters, supercars, race cars, and coupés, both discontinued and still in production. Cars that have sport trims (such as the Honda Civic SI) will be listed under the sport trims section. Production tunes will include cars modified by outside brands and then sold. This does not include in-house brands such as Ford’s Special Vehicle Team, which will be included in the main list. Some vehicles are sold under different brands, therefore some vehicles may be listed more than once but usually link to the same page. Different countries/continents may also classify vehicles differently, example; the Toyota 86 name is known throughout most of the world, but in Europe, its sold as the Toyota GT86, and in the United States and Canada it’s sold under the Scion marque name as the Scion FR-S and the Subaru marque name as the Subaru BRZ.

Across segments, American cars are no longer less expensive alternatives to their foreign counterparts, and cross-shopping from German to American is no longer a far-fetched reality. The fact that last year, Motor Trend‘s best driver’s car was a Chevy Camaro Z/28 was proof that we were once again an automotive superpower. And in honor of American steeds, we’ve selected the best and most coveted, including one of the best sports cars in the world, a German-beating performance family sedan and a hot hatch extraordinaire.

Note: Many of these cars aren’t performance cars, but they are all two seaters. This list starts after 1945, too many pre-war two seaters. This list was many intended to be for street legal production cars, but I’ve made a handful of exceptions for coolness sake. I’m sure I’ve missed some, chime in with what you’ve got.

If you can find a better American sports sedan that also doubles as a slick family sedan, let us know. The CTS-V has everything going for it in the looks-and-cooks department. Driven by a slightly less powerful version of the Z06’s engine, the clean-cut CTS-V rockets to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (just about a second slower than the Corvette Z06) with a top speed of — get this — 200 mph. It has M5s and E63 AMGs quaking in their brakes. 640 horsepower and 630 lb-ft are more than enough for this four-door rocket sled that just so happens to get luxe appointments worthy of an American sports sedan and the aggressive looks to match.

1987-93 Cadillac Allante – The Allante, Reatta, and (4 seater) Chrysler TC were an odd niche of American luxury soft-core sports cars. Perhaps if they were rwd they may have found more success.

Not only have Americans been able to hold their own on the international stage when it comes to speed, it can also lay claim to the fastest cars in the world. And after generations of design and engineering tweaks, speed has been democratized, and is now available to almost everyone with a driver’s license. And while our daily drivers have gotten faster, our performance cars have become downright insane.

Yes, the P90D is limited to a top speed of “just”155 miles per hour, just like a full-size SUV from Mercedes. But unlike other cars in the 155 club (a common top speed for limited cars), the P90D has 762 horsepower and can sprint from zero to 60 in an eye-watering 2.8 seconds. Top speed be damned, the P90D is just plain quick.

Manufacturers nowadays sell sports cars that have more power than any one person needs, so some enthusiasts often turn their noses up at anything built before the financial crisis hit. Well, that’s their loss.
