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

That’s not to say sports cars are intrinsically impractical: some of the models we feature here have four seats, while improvements in packaging and design mean sports cars’ boots are far more useable than they once were. It’s a similar story with fuel economy, as most of the cars on this list use the latest engine technology to offer reasonable running costs, and some return over 60mpg.

Sports cars should be fast, sure, but they should also put a great big grin on your face every time you climb aboard. They tend to be less practical and more expensive than family hatchbacks, for example, so those deficits need compensating for; pure driving pleasure is surely one of the most significant carrots with which sports cars tempt buyers.

Toyota GT 86 coupe The GT86 is a real enthusiast’s choice and one of the few modern cars that favours handling balance and driver involvement over brute power. It’s not slow – a reliable 197bhp 2.0-litre engine is more than enough, and the low driving position, traditional rear-wheel-drive layout and view down that long bonnet endear it to old-school sports car fans. While many carmakers are fitting hugely powerful engines to their sports cars, Toyota is to be praised for taking a different route with the GT86. Believe it or not, it comes with the same size tyres the carmaker fits to its oh-so-sensible Prius hybrid, but this only improves matters in the GT86: it makes the driving experience pin-sharp and bestows the car with just the right amount of grip. Things are rather less appealing inside, as the dashboard is uninspiring and features fairly run-of-the-mill materials, but that’ll be the last thing on your mind on a challenging country road.

‘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!

BMW i8 coupe It’s hard to believe that the BMW i8 is a car you can just go out and buy; inside and out it has the looks – and much of the technology – of something from a science-fiction movie. Futuristic looks aside, it’s a real experience to drive, combining the 1.5-litre petrol engine from the MINI Cooper with two electric motors and four-wheel drive to slingshot from 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds. With performance like this, as well as traditional BMW handling, the i8 is genuine alternative to some of today’s leading sports cars, all while returning up to 135mpg and CO2 emissions as little as 54g/km. There are few – if any – cars on sale today that draw as many admiring glances as the i8, so it’s probably a poor choice for shrinking violets. You can always bring three (small) friends along with you to make you feel more comfortable, though, as the i8 can seat four in a pinch.

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.

Of course, not all of us are lawyers or doctors, and so price is as much a part of the decision-making process as power and performance. Luckily there are plenty of fun and affordable options out there ranging from hot hatchbacks to cool coupes for those in the market for a new sports car. So without further ado, here’s a list, in no particular order, of some of the best sports cars you can buy for less than $30,000*.
