2016 Chevrolet Camaro
John Vincent / U.S. News and World Report

If you’re feeling the need for speed as summer approaches, you’ll appreciate the sports car finance and lease deals that manufacturers are offering this June. Sports car lease and finance deals this June include a number of offers designed to get the last 2015 models off dealers’ lots.

There are generous zero percent financing and cash back offers on the 2015 Ford Mustang, plus some good, but less generous offers on the 2016 model. Same goes for the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

Volkswagen is looking to kick-start sales with five years of no-interest financing and generous cash back on the highly rated 2016 GTI.

We are frequently updating our financing and lease deals pages, and car buyers owe it to themselves to use our Best Price Program, where they can save thousands by receiving offers from certified dealers.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

Deal: 2.9 percent financing for up to five years

The sixth-generation Chevy Camaro debuted late last year and climbed quickly to the No. 2 spot in our ranking of sports cars. This June you can get a finance deal on the Camaro, paying just 2.9 percent interest for up to five years on the 2016 model.

If you prefer to lease, you can slide the Camaro 1LT into your driveway for $259 per month for 39 months with $3,559 due at lease signing. The Camaro 1LT carries a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under its long hood. The smallest engine in the Camaro lineup, the turbo still produces 275 horsepower and a zero to 60 mph time of less than six seconds.

Deal: $407 per month lease for three years with nothing due at signing

Summer nights beg for open-air driving, and the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata blends a top-down ride with great handling and an affordable price. This June, get our top-ranked convertible and sports car on a three-year lease for $407 per month with nothing due at signing and no first month’s payment.

The MX-5 was redesigned for 2016, and powers-that-be at Mazda declared that we can start calling it the Miata again – not that anyone ever stopped calling the MX-5 sports cars Miatas. The sports car has returned to its simple, lightweight roots. Mazda recently announced that a power-retractable hardtop will join the Miata family.

2016 Lexus RC

Deal: 0.9 percent financing for five years on RC 200t

Lexus expanded its RC sports coupe lineup for 2016, adding a turbocharged four-cylinder and a new all-wheel drive model to the lineup. Depending on where you live, you can get great lease or finance deals on nearly every version of the RC this June.

Buyers in the Central, Southern, and Western states can get 0.9 percent financing for five years and 1.9 percent for six years when purchasing the RC 200t. If you’re in the Central or Eastern states you can get those same financing terms on the RC 300 AWD. Customers in the Southern states can apply the finance deal to the RC 350 F Sport.

Lease customers in the Southern and Western states can get the best deal on an RC 200t lease, with payments of between $382 and $399 per month with about $3,000 to $3,400 due at signing. Other lease deals with various terms are available, and you should check out our Lexus deals page for details.

The Lexus RC is currently tied for the No. 4 slot in our ranking of luxury small cars with the BMW 2-Series.

2015 and 2016 Ford Mustang

Deal: Zero percent financing for five years on 2015 Mustang, plus $500 bonus cash

Ford is offering several lease and finance deals on the 2016 Mustang, but if you can find a 2015 Mustang at a dealership you can do even better. They’re offering zero percent financing for five years or 2.9 percent for seven years on the 2015, plus up to $500 bonus cash.

Skip the low-interest financing and you can still get $1,400 cash back when you finance a 2015 through Ford.

Opt for a 2016, and Ford is offering a finance deal with zero percent interest for three years (five in the Southeast). The interest climbs as you lengthen your loan term, topping out at 4.9 percent for seven years. Bring your own financing, and you can get up to $750 cash back.

In much of the country, you can lease a Mustang V6 Coupe for three years with a monthly payment of $259 and $2,649 due at signing. In the Southwest, get a Mustang EcoBoost at $289 per month for three years with $1,999 due at lease signing.

The Mustang is the third-ranked sports car in our ratings, behind the Camaro and Miata.

2016 BMW Z4

Deal: 2.99 percent financing for up to six years

BMW is offering 2.99 percent financing for six years across much of their lineup this June, including the Z4 roadster. The 2016 BMW Z4 is also available with leases ranging from $499 to $699 per month for three years, depending on the powertrain.

Around $4,500 is due at signing on the lease deals.

The Z4 is tied with the Audi TT for the No. 10 slot in U.S. News & Report’s ranking of luxury sports cars and the No. 13 spot in our listing of luxury convertibles. The Z4 has plenty of power, even with its base four-cylinder engine, but its handling isn’t as crisp and responsive as others in the class.

2015 and 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe/4C Spider

2015 and 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe/4C Sp
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

Deal: 0.9 percent financing for five years on 2015 models; 2.9 percent on 2016 models

The Italian flair of Alfa Romeo has returned to America’s shores, and you can put some in your driveway this June with lease and finance deals on both the 2016 Alfa 4C Coupe and Spider. There are even better deals to be had if you can find a 2015 model.

You can finance a 2015 coupe or convertible for up to five years with an interest rate of 0.9 percent. Choose a 2016 and the rate bumps to 2.9 percent for the same term.

Alfa’s lease deals only run two years, with a 10,000 mile per year cap. Lease a 2015 4C Coupe for $679 per month with $5,499 due at signing or a 4C Spider for $779 per month and the same amount down. Go for a 2016, and it is $729 per month with $5,999 due at signing on a 4C Coupe and $799 per month with $5,999 down on a 4C Spider.

The 4C ranks No. 12 of 14 in our ranking of luxury sports cars and No. 15 of 17 luxury convertibles.

2016 Volkswagen GTI

John Vincent / U.S. News and World Report

Deal: Zero percent financing for five years, plus $1,000 credit bonus

The 2016 Volkswagen GTI is available this June with zero percent financing for up to five years plus $1,000 credit bonus. The original GTI pioneered the segment of high-performance, yet inexpensive hatchbacks in the American market. For 2016, the VW GTI gained Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

In our ranking of sports cars, the GTI currently holds the No. 4 position. In the hatchback category it is tied for No. 3 with the Kia Soul. It was a finalist for our 2016 Best Sports Car for the Money award.

A 210-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder drives the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

2015 and 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Deal: 0.9 percent interest for five years or 2.9 percent for six years on 2105 models

Hyundai is trying to move the last 2015 Genesis Coupes off their lots this June while also offering cash back and lease deals on the 2016 model. You can finance a 2015 Genesis Coupe with 0.9 percent financing for up to five years or 2.9 percent for six years.  

Bring your own financing and you’ll get $2,500 cash back on a 2015 or $500 on a 2016. You can choose to lease a 2016 Genesis Coupe for $299 per month for three years with $2,799 due at signing.

The Genesis Coupe is ranked No. 9 of 9 in our sports car category. The coupe’s V6 engine is strong, but the suspension is more suited to touring than high performance. Upper trims gain better handling, but at the cost of noise and harshness.

2016 Chevrolet Corvette

2016 Chevrolet Corvette
General Motors

Deal: 3.9 percent financing for up to five years

The iconic Corvette is available this June with 3.9 percent financing for five years, but you might be able to do even better if you bring your own financing to the deal. The national average interest rate for a five-year loan is hovering around 3.25 percent, according to Bankrate.com.

If you have excellent credit and use an online lender, community bank, or credit union, you can probably beat that average interest rate. If you buy the Corvette, you’ll also be able to beat most other cars in a drag race. The base Corvette goes from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Step up to the Z06 model, and you’ll drop your zero to 60 mph time to a blistering 2.95 seconds.

In our ranking of sports cars, the 2016 Corvette Stingray is tied for No. 3 with the 2016 Porsche Cayman.

2016 Jaguar F-Type

Deal: Three-year leases starting at $669 per month for three years with $4,995 due at signing

You can entertain the neighbors this summer with the thundering exhaust note from a Jaguar F-Type coupe or convertible, and you can save some money with lease deals this June. Leases start at $669 per month on a three-year lease for the F-Type coupe with $4,995 due at signing.

Choose a convertible, and the payment goes to $719 per month for three years with $4,995 due at signing. Higher trim levels are also available with lease deals this month.

The F-Type current holds the No. 5 slot in both our luxury sports car and luxury convertible categories. Industry experts laud the F-Type for its athletic performance but are less enthusiastic about its infotainment system.

Mercedes-Benz SL

Mercedes-Benz SL
Mercedes-Benz USA

Deal: Three year leases starting at $949 per month with $5,743 due at signing

Whether you’re cruising the boulevard of a beach town or enjoying the sea air as you’re exploring a coastal highway, there’s no luxury roadster more fitting than the Mercedes-Benz SL. This June, you can get an SL400 for $949 per month on a three-year lease with $5,743 due at signing.

Step up to the more powerful SL550, and you’ll pay $1,149 per month for three years with $6,943 due at signing.

Unless you opt for one of the ultra-high-performance AMG models, the SL (originally Super Lightweight) Mercedes has evolved into a refined and luxurious sports touring roadster. It currently holds the No. 6 position in both our luxury sports car and luxury convertible classes.

Nissan 370Z

Deal: Zero percent financing for five years

Is it time to give in to your midlife crisis and pick up a sports car? This June you can put a Nissan 370Z Coupe in your driveway with a zero percent financing deal for five years. Bring your own financing, and you can receive $1,000 cash back.

The 370Z is showing its age in its interior design, performance, and efficiency. It’s currently ranked No. 8 of 9 sports cars in our listings and No. 4 of 5 convertibles. The classic Z Car profile leads to compromises for both interior room and cargo space. The 370Z does offer a very good six-speed manual transmission with rev-matched downshifts that make for a smoother driving experience.

2016 Porsche Boxster

2016 Porsche Boxster
Porsche Cars North America Inc.

Deal: $599 per month lease for three years with $5,299 due at signing

Our No. 1-ranked luxury sports car and No. 1-ranked luxury convertible is going away. The Porsche Boxster will soon be replaced in dealerships with a redesigned – and renamed – roadster called the Porsche 718 Boxster. But that’s good those looking for a good lease deal from Porsche this June.

The 2016 Boxster can be leased for $599 per month for three years with $5,299 due at signing.

The crisp and nimble Boxster is a more approachable sports car than some, and certainly more comfortable than many cars with similar performance. It doesn’t carry the most powerful engine in the class, but the power it has is exquisitely managed to give its driver a great driving experience.

2016 Subaru BRZ / 2016 Scion FR-S

Deal: Three-year leases starting at $279 per month with $1,999 due at signing

The sports coupes from Subaru and Scion are nearly identical twins, with slight equipment and styling differences to separate the siblings. However, the Scion FR-S, which will soon be rebadged as the Toyota 86, has a better lease deal this June.

The FR-S three-year lease deal has monthly payments of $279 with $1,999 due at signing. Depending on where you live, the Subaru BRZ’s lease deals start at $295 per month and require more at signing than the Scion.

If you’re buying, which car has the better finance deal depends on your location. In the Southwest, Subaru is offering zero percent interest for a limited term, compared to Scion’s 0.9 percent interest for five years. In the rest of the country, Scion beats Subaru’s 1.49 percent offer.

Both the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ are tied with the Dodge Challenger for the No. 5 slot in our rankings of sports cars.
