Drive Fast and Save Cash With These Thrifty Speedsters

There’s an adage among some performance driving enthusiasts: “It’s better to go fast in a slow car than slow in a fast car.” The logic behind this saying considers that one cannot really push a supercar to its limits on the open road.

But a small, affordable car will feel like it's racing when traveling at the same speed that the supercar would be idling. The ability to open up these cars is what makes them so much fun.

Here are 15 of the fastest cars that won’t put a huge dent in your wallet.
