Sports cars are the most fun you can have on the road. However, many of these performance vehicles can cost much more than the average sale price of a new car. However, there are a handful of sports cars that can be yours for under thirty thousand dollars. These low-cost performers offer many of the great thrills from high-end sports cars for a fraction of the price. Some of these vehicles can offer you some drop-top fun, while others can be almost practical with seating for four and a full sized trunk. Below are five of the best sports cars that you can call your own for under thirty thousand dollars.
FIAT 124 Spider
The FIAT 124 Spider could be considered the Mazda Miata's sexier Italian counterpart, as they are both built on the same platform. The 124 Spider, however, offers a unique style that actually makes the roadster look more expensive than its sticker price would suggest. The 124 Spider is powered by a 1.4-liter turbo engine that produces 164 horsepower. The 124 Spider can propel itself from zero to sixty miles an hour in a respectable 6.3 seconds. Available as a manual or an automatic, the FIAT 124 Spider is one of the best bargains in the group with a starting price of around 25,200 dollars. Well equipped, you can still keep the sexy Italian roadster at under thirty grand.
