Top 10 Affordable Sports Cars

Affordable sports cars exist for one reason – to offer all of their splendor to those of us that usually can’t afford luxury cars, supercars, or even top tier muscle cars. Japanese roadsters offer superb handling, quick revving and genuinely fun drive, but they aren’t the only ones. Domestic cars can be affordable too, and offer all of this at the same time as well. Heck, even German cars have been known to become affordable if you’re patient enough to wait before buying them. What’s more, all of them can become laughably cheap over time. And while their prices drop considerably, their performance remains more or less intact. You won’t pay much for them and nothing will hold you back for it. You’ll be able to squeeze out the most of them without feeling guilty about forcing them too much. This is why cheap used sports cars can be a fine investment. You can drive them until their their soul leaves their body and move on to the next one. Here are ten such affordable sports cars to choose from. Oh, and only one nameplate per manufacturer to keep things fair. And, no Mazda Miata. It’s getting seriously boring. Not the car’s driving dynamics which are hellishly fun, but its inclusion on every single related list. Consider this the honorable mention.   PreviousNext

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

This car is produced by General Motors in the 2000s. The engine is 2.0L 4 cylinder unit, producing 260HP. It is paired with limited slip differential and 6 gears transmission. Newer models can cost above the $10,000 mark, but the early ones are definitely affordable sports cars. A convertible with this price and with these specifications almost always means a lot of fun to drive and Sky Redline shares this advantage. One of the additional facts we should mention in the suspension. It is stiff, so rough driving is even preferable, precisely what a sports car must provide. Important: Most of these cars were used as city cars. Make sure there are no a lot of dents and damages on the body and suspension.

All three Ford Mustang models are rear-wheel-drive, and all come with a manual transmission as standard—though the EcoBoost and GT models also now offer a 10-speed automatic transmission that’s new for the 2018 model year. Those two fast cars also come in both coupe and convertible forms (the Shelby is only available with a solid roof). The 2018 model year upgrades also include a host of new technological features, like a digital 12-inch instrument panel, pedestrian detection technology, and, weirdly enough, a start button that pulses in time with a horse’s heartbeat. Ford Mustang Base Price: $25,185 Chevrolet CamaroChevrolet2017 Chevrolet Camaro SSOnce the subject of jokes for its bloated styling and T-top roof, the Chevy Camaro has grown all the way into one of the best sports cars on the planet. While the 6.2-liter V-8-powered SS making 455 hp and the supercharged V-8-engined ZL1 packing 650 hp have the power to run neck-and-neck with cars costing three times as much, even Camaros with the lesser 335-hp 3.6-liter V-6 or 275-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four are still plenty of fun to drive. And there’s even a 1LE track package available for V-6 and V-8 models that pushes this cheap sports car even closer to supercar territory. Whether coupe or convertible, every new Chevy Camaro comes with a standard six-speed manual gearbox, but you can grab it with an automatic (an eight-speed unit on everything but the ZL1, which gets a new 10-speed transmission) should you desire. And while it may have the soul of a classic muscle car, the Camaro offers plenty of 21st Century tech features, like standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi, standard touchscreen infotainment, and an available head-up display.

Technically known as the Mazda MX-5 Miata, this little sports car has been winning over sports car lovers since 1989 with its infectious character. It may rarely be the fastest car in the room, but with its nimble balance, delicate controls, and open roof, it’s one of the best sports cars at any price. The fourth-generation model may pack just 155 hp, but with a curb weight of around 2,400 pounds, that’s more than enough ponies to entertain even the most aggressive driver. While the six-speed manual gearbox is the obvious choice for true roadster fans, the six-speed automatic serves the Miata well enough. Even the base model of this cheap sports car come with LED headlights, Bluetooth, and cruise control; higher-spec versions add on touchscreen infotainment systems, navigation, and automatic climate control. And for 2017, the MX-5 now comes in a sleek retractable hard top version, the Miata RF. Mazda MX-5 Base Price: $24,915 Volkswagen GTI
