More on Sports Cars

Sports cars that don't cost as much as a house tend to come in two primary categories. Small, lightweight sports cars with four-cylinder engines are designed to deliver excellent handling and agility rather than outright speed and power.

Muscle cars, on the other hand, are heavier and have more powerful engines. No matter which type of sports car you're shopping for, you shouldn't have trouble finding one that delivers thrills without breaking the bank.

Our rankings are based on analysis of third party reviews. Sometimes, we are unable to find enough reviews to publish a definitive ranking. Please check back later, as we are constantly updating our reviews.

Safety scores should only be compared between vehicles of similar size and weight. Larger, heavier vehicles generally provide more protection than smaller, lighter ones.
