There are at least 5 affordable supercars available. Usually reserved for those with trust funds or millions in the bank, supercars are generally out of reach for the average middle class income earner. However, there are options to choose from that will not set you back an arm and a leg. While the Ferrari F540 is usually more than $200,000, there are other well-known quality brand supercars that cost $60,000 or even less than that in some cases. The brand name of the car plays the biggest role in the cost. Legendary names like Lamborghini and Ferrari have a high demand making their prices unattainable for most, but this does not make a supercar made by Mitsubishi or BMW any less of a supercar.
This 245 horsepower 2.7 liter car may seem excessive to most but is modest for the Porsche brand. Coming in near $47,000, this supercar is an excellent choice for those with the need for speed without the Lamborghini price tag.
Don't be fooled by the name, this supercar earns its name rightfully. Starting at 291 horsepower, the Lancer costs under $38,000. Featuring all wheel drive and a turbo-charged engine, it is no wonder this car is a favorite for rallies.
While some cars produced by Lotus cost over $100,000, the Elise comes in at a comfortable $46,270. Reaching 60 MPH in only 4.9 seconds this supercar features a 190 horsepower engine that may seem unimpressive until you realize this supercar weighs less than 2,000 pounds.
Priced at around $55,000, this BMW performance car is the sportier version of the 3-Series car. Reaching 60 MPH in only 3.6 seconds there is no doubt the M3 is a supercar.
Chevrolet Corvette C5
This Corvette is the fifth generation sports car produced by General Motors. Reaching 60 MPH in only 4.7 seconds the C5 features a powerful 345 horsepower engine and usually costs between $37,000 and $46,000.
