Everybody growing up dreams of owning and driving that 2 door coupe driving along the ocean. Well, we’ve found 5 incredibly beautiful well constructed iconic sports cars available for under $30,000! No matter where you are in life, these cars are affordable and amazing to drive.
This is a favorite among hobbyists. It doesn't have the fastest 0-60 time but it handles and drives very well around tight corners. The car is very reactive and fun to drive and what it lacks in power it more than makes up for in handling. The car starts at just under $27,000 and is our top choice for affordable sports cars.
The American classic Ford Mustang has a lightening fast 0-60 in the range of under 4.5 seconds and just feels like a rocket. The car doesn't hug corners quite like some of the Japanese cars on the list, but it's a classic for a reason. Priced competitively at under $27,000 it's a favorite amongst our staff.
Another car with a cult following, the WRX is an all wheel drive well handling car. It's not quite as fast as the Mustang or even the 86, but it has more space and is a bit more practical of a car with ability to handle all-weather fun. It's priced just above $27,000 and a fun drive if you're looking for an all wheel drive sports car.
The Dodge Challenger is the most expensive car in this category at only $28,000. It's got more power than the mustang, but given it's heavier and larger the car doesn't quite have the 0-60 of the Mustang. If you've ever wanted a sports car with a lot of torque that feels like a tank, the Challenger might be for you.
Mazda MX-5 Miata
The Mazda Miata is the cheapest car in this category starting at $25,000. The car has repeatedly won awards for best handling, etc. The car is a quicker and lighter 86 without quite the weight in the frame and a bit less off the line speed. Overall a fantastic buy if you're looking to drive near the beaches or down mountains!
