Even Henry Ford himself raced to prove that his cars could perform. Today, sports cars continue to inspire designers and engineers to push the boundaries of performance. A sports car is engineered to be fun to drive fast. Roadsters, coupes, sedans and even crossover vehicles deserve consideration. We know a sports car when we drive one—it’s the one that puts a big grin across our mugs, and begs to be driven more. And although some of the cars on our list are pricey, we believe that each of these sports cars are full of value for the money – relative to the price range you’re currently shopping.

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

More on Luxury Sports Cars To some consumers, luxury sports cars may be the pinnacle of the automotive kingdom. They are powerful, fast, handsome, and in most cases, quite luxurious. They come with either a fixed hardtop, a convertible top, or a one-piece removable roof panel, often referred to as a targa. Whether you dream of cruising the boulevard in a convertible with the top down or driving at high speeds around a racetrack, there is likely a luxury sports car that can fulfill your fantasy. In most cases, a car’s scores are based on its power and speed, the quality of its cabin materials, its ride comfort, its handling abilities, and even the sound of its engine. The best smaller convertibles tend to be sporty cars that feel decently strong, ride comfortably, and are generally fun to drive. On the other end are the muscle cars that tend to earn good reviews for power, acceleration, and handling, offering powertrains ranging from twin-turbocharged V6s to V10s. Back to top

Sports cars and value don’t usually go together, but the Toyota 86 is an exception to that rule, and an exceptionally fun one at that. Formerly known as the Scion FR-S, this 2-door coupe brings an injection of excitement to the parent Toyota brand after it wound down its Scion unit. While this compact sports car has a new name, its objective remains: Provide a sports-car experience at a price within reach of ordinary buyers. Developed with Subaru (the 86 is a twin to the BRZ), this Toyota packs a 2.0-liter flat-4 engine that drives the rear wheels. In an age when even cars that call themselves sporty are front-wheel drive, the 86’s rear-wheel-drive configuration alone gives it an edge, but it’s hardly the only trait that appeals to driving enthusiasts. The 2017 Toyota 86’s light weight, low center of gravity and performance suspension make it an excellent corner carver. Then there’s the transmission. While a 6-speed automatic is optional and pleasing enough, the 6-speed manual is the one to get for the most driver engagement. As we found in our full review, the 86 is “a quick, lightweight and genuinely fun sports car that should make any driving enthusiast happy. It has a tossability that’s rare in today’s cars, and although it’s not very fast, the taut suspension lets you carry speed into a corner unlike nearly anything at its price point.” With its 2+2 seating, standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, fuel economy of up to 32 mpg and starting price of just over $27,000, the 2017 Toyota 86 proves performance and value can go hand in hand.

‘Murika I wouldn’t consider FWD cars as “sports cars.” AWD is a push in and of itself. I would see a traditional sports car as a RWD with 2 doors passenger doors. Sport and sporty are two different things. r l Lmao this guy is so Canadian is painful to listen! Aboooot!

Why Edmunds Recommends the 2016 Tesla Model S: Who would ever think that an electric car could end up on a list of the best, “A”-rated performance cars? Well, there’s a whole lot more to the Tesla Model S’s appeal than rollin’ gas-free. Even the basic Model S 60 can hit 60 mph in a quick 5.9 seconds, but from there things only get better, culminating in the 691-hp, all-wheel-drive P85D model that goes from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds. In other words, it can keep up with exotic sports cars in a straight line, with surprisingly sharp handling for such a big, heavy car.

It looks to me like you’re describing a sports coupe, not necessarily a sports car. Sure, those prerequisites once existed, but the definition has changed so much as cars have evolved.
