More on Sports Cars Sports cars that don’t cost as much as a house tend to come in two primary categories. Small, lightweight sports cars with four-cylinder engines are designed to deliver excellent handling and agility rather than outright speed and power. Muscle cars, on the other hand, are heavier and have more powerful engines. No matter which type of sports car you’re shopping for, you shouldn’t have trouble finding one that delivers thrills without breaking the bank. Back to top

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.

It’s a big year for sports cars, with the 50th anniversary of the Chevrolet Camaro, which welcomes the new ZL1 high-performance model. The Corvette Z06 has a new limited-production racing-inspired C7.R trim. The Fiat 124 Spider is a brand-new model and ranks No. 1 in sports cars, tied with the fully redesigned Mazda MX-5 Miata. It would be a crime not to mention the all-new 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster, as the 2016 Boxster was 2016’s sports car to beat.

If the fourth-generation Camaro could see what it’s become in the form of the sixth-generation car, it would weep with joy. Smaller, faster and tighter, it makes the Camaro more than just a great American pony car — it’s a sports coupe that both looks and drives the part. On the already-proven GM Alpha platform that undergirds the Caddy CTS and ATS, the new Camaro is shorter, narrower and lower than its predecessor, as well as 200 pounds lighter. And along with the 335 horsepower V6 and the 455 horsepower V8, the new Camaro will get a 2-liter turbocharged engine that spits out 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, making the small displacement car quick.

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V coupe might not come from the same sports car DNA as the other members on this list, but the 2-door luxury car provides explosive performance thanks to the dedicated efforts of the American brand’s engineers. The Cadillac CTS-V coupe offers 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, and it also comes with a magnetically-controlled suspension system in order to keep the heavy car planted through the corners. A 6-speed manual transmission is recommended with the CTS-V, although a 6-speed automatic featuring a traditional torque converter design is also available.

The last Malibu wasn’t a horrible car, nor was it ugly. It was just not that noticeable. Relegated to rental fleets or salesmen on the road, there just wasn’t much to write home about when it came to the Impala’s smaller brother. But the new car even upstages the handsome Impala by sporting tighter, racier sheet metal. It’s longer and lower than the last car and sheds 300 pounds thanks to the new E2 architecture. Power comes from three choices, a turbocharged 1.5-liter four with 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, a 2-liter turbocharged that makes 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft, and a hybrid that should get a whopping 48 MPG. The performance won’t be markedly different from the last car, but at least you won’t be mistaken for an accountant.

The Ford Mustang GT is the best example of the latest generation of pony car. Featuring a 5.0-liter V8 engine, the Mustang GT puts down 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Power is managed with a choice of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. Even better, the Mustang GT is offered in both fastback and convertible body styles, and a little fresh air will make that power sound even better. The cabin features higher quality materials than the previous generation, lending the 2017 Mustang GT a bit of refinement that turns this sports car from a track-only toy to a comfortable everyday option.

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.
