6 Best Muscle Cars on the Market Today

Nothing says America quite like an iconic muscle car. These cars hold a special place in American history, and are still available today. The original muscle car was defined as an American-made two-door sports car with an engine boasting plenty of horsepower, generally sold at an affordable price.

Today’s muscle cars don’t completely fit the traditional bill, but for the most part, they are muscle cars at the core. Some have two doors, while others have four. In terms of American-made, few cars are “fully” made in America, and many of those that are come from foreign-based automakers. Tesla is an outlier, as it is the first new successful American car startup in 113 years.

If you’re looking for power that’s paired with aggressive façades, this list is for you. If you prioritize cars by their zero-to-- 60 time and head-turning guttural exhaust notes, look no further. Some are even surprisingly affordable.
