Speedy Cars With a Sensible Price

The need for speed doesn’t always agree with the need to pay rent or put food on the table. But that doesn’t mean buyers with a budget have to poke around in a slow car. We’ve rounded up nine of the most powerful used sports cars under $30,000, from muscle cars to roadsters.

We took the national average paid for each of these models into account, but used cars can vary widely in price. Age, condition, and miles on the odometer, of course, make a difference, but so does the geographic location of the car. Check local (and maybe non-local) dealerships and private sellers to find the right combination of condition and price. Our used cars listings can help in the search.
