These Are the Cheapest New Sports Cars You Can Buy

Shopping for a sports car is easier – and less costly – than you may have thought possible. In fact, of the eight sports cars we’ve gathered here, only one has a base price that starts above $30,000.

Don’t feel guilty because you want to indulge in a new set of wheels – especially something fun that doesn’t offer a dozen cup holders or spill-proof seating for kids. Putting a corner-carving, powerful, and head-turning car in your garage or driveway is a great way to reward yourself – and really, who wouldn’t like a reward right about now?

For affordable wind-in-your-hair thrills, the zippy Mazda Miata is a perfect two-passenger roadster. Want some muscle car attitude for minimal cash? The Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Camaro all have entry-level models that start between $25,000 and $28,000.

Remember, we’re sidestepping optional engines, performance packages, and other extras that send the price shooting skyward. Yes, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is 797-horsepower of tire-melting madness. And it should be, considering it starts around $72,000 – more than double the price of the base Challenger that we'll cover here.
