Choosing a sports car can be a daunting task with a limited budget. Known for being unreliable with high insurance costs, sports cars have lost favor with mainstream car purchasers. However, the following 5 cars seek to change that perception by offering bargain basement pricing with unparalleled reliability for the segment. Let’s get started.
5. 2020 Porsche Cayman
The Porsche Cayman has styling borrowing cues from the Porsche 904 and Carrera Gt. With an MSRP under $59,000 this car is an automotive masterpiece at a bargain basement price. The only downside to the Cayman is that the styling has been around for a few years now. What it lacks in freshness, it definitely makes up in the finishes. The leather and Alcantara are nice touches for this price point. We recommend one in Arctic Silver with tan interior.
4. 2020 BMW M4
Next up, we have the BMW M4. The BMW M4 is a timeless classic that historically maintains its value. Featuring a 3.0 L Twin Turbo 6-Cylinder with over 420 hp, this car is a performer. Get this car on the road and you will be able to immediately tell why BMWs are known as the Ultimate Driving Machine. We recommend this car in blue with the full carbon fiber package and GTS wheels.
3. 2017 Maserati GranTurismo MC
With its classic Pininfarina Styling, the Maserati lets you arrive in style. With a whopping MSRP of over one hundred thousand dollars, a lightly used GranTurismo MC with 454 horsepower and 384 lb ft. or torque goes 0 – 60 in 4.4 seconds can be had for under $60k. The purely guttural sound of the naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 is unmatched. To conclude, we suggest staying away from the convertible and going for an MC model. Oh, we almost forgot, be on the lookout for model years that have the notorious “sticky buttons”.

2. 2020 Toyota Supra
The highly anticipated Supra returns to the Toyota lineup after almost 2 decades. Although sharing parts with the current BMW Z4, this killer 2-seater is arguably more aggressive and sportier. In its most basic form, the Supra is fitted with a screaming 335 horsepower engine, going from zero to sixty in just 3.7 seconds. The Supra is a great bargain, even though littered with BMW parts, the Toyota dealer support is unparalleled.
1. 2020 Corvette C8
Generally, there is not much we can say about the all new mid-engine C8 Corvette, but Wow! The mid-mounted small block 6.2 liter V8 of the Corvette is hard to keep up with on the track and at this price point. Being that its putting out an amazing 495 hp and 495 lb. ft. of torque, this Corvette would make Zora proud. Given these points its an easy choice as number one. We recommend getting the slightly more expensive Z51 Package and of course, in the signature Corvette Torch Red.
