10 Best Reasonably Priced Sports Cars
Yeah we all know you want a Bugatti Veyron 16.4, but let's get real with the 10 best reasonably priced sports cars. Well, what defines "reasonably priced" then? According to Kelley Blue Book, the most researched vehicles usually lie in the "less than $30,000" range; hence, we'll go with that definition for reasonably priced sports cars. Sure that includes the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Honda Accord, but we can definitely find some more than reasonably priced sports cars in that bunch as well.
- The Ford Mustang. Even as the 2011 market comes rolling in, the 'Stang has continued its mighty streak of dominance in the domestic and foreign sports car market. Regardless of whether the Camaro will be giving it some interesting competition soon, we have our sights set on what truly defines the best of the best reasonably priced sports cars: the Ford Mustang.
- The Nissan370Z. Obviously, not everyone wants to drive around a Mustang. Sure, the ole 'Stang is a beauty in and of its own ingenuity, but there is nothing like zipping around in one of the most beautiful, reasonably priced sports cars in the automotive market. Oh, yeah, and it's super quick!
- The Mazda 3. Well, the Mustang and the 370Z might have this Mazda beat on performance (and possibly on looks), but definitely not price! Heck, why are you shopping for reasonably priced sports cars if you don't want some bang for that buck? The Mazda 3 posses quick handling, good looks, and a small price tag. Nice!
- The Chrysler PT Cruiser. Yes, it's not all racing-and-recklessness when it comes to the best reasonably priced sports cars. Let's take the PT Cruiser for example which, with its sporty and luxurious good looks, is enough to make anyone look fly.
- The Mazda RX-8. While the MPGs are going to definitely take a hit here, the RX-8's superior handling and drive more than make up for it. Mazda definitely knows how to appeal to the reasonably priced sports cars market.
- The Hyundai Genesis Coupe. The Japanese automaker's notorious rear-wheel drive two seater is back with even more value for your green. The abilities of customization and driving are extremely generous for the money demanded.
- The Mazda MX-5. This is Mazda Corporation's third entry onto the list, and not with any sort of drop in performance. Although it ushers out a mere 170 horsepower, the MX-5 is light, quick, and a beauty to behold.
- The BMW Z4. Now, you might be thinking "how can I afford that beautiful beamer?" Let alone, let's think of how a BMW could make the best reasonably priced sports cars list. Used value. Indeed, with under 30,000 miles, a 2008 Z4 could easily fit this bracket, while outshining all of its competitors.
- The Dodge Challenger. Althought its premiere version can get quite pricey, a base-model Challenger runs under a solid 25 G's. Love retro/muscle-car looks? Then the Dodge Challenger is the machine for you!
- The Chevy Camaro. Rounding out the 10 in the best reasonably priced sports cars category is Chevy's new "come-back". Sponsored by Transformers, and one of the more rare American coupes of today, the Camaro is definitely a top pick. Why so low then? Well, let's just say it barely makes the "affordable" bar in the automotive marketplace.
It's always fun to compare the top reasonably priced sports cars around, but it is also important to know what you want in a vehicle. Just because the Mustang is top on our list doesn't mean it fits everyone (or everyone's budget). Be consumer conscious, and you'll be more than happy with your new affordable sports car!
