If you’re looking for an affordable sports car, buying pre-owned is an easy decision, but choosing the right car can feel overwhelming. Used sports cars come in all conditions, makes and models, but some rise above the rest. Here we’ve highlighted three of our favorite pre-owned sports cars for this year.
Affordable Sports Car #1: Chevrolet Corvette
Corvettes are as American as apple pie and check all the boxes of what a sports car should include: Class, Power, Style. The Corvette has been turning heads since 1953, and the late-model sixth generation Vette (introduced in 2005) is no exception. The C6 featured all new bodywork and exposed headlamps along with a new 6.0L engine and reworked suspension geometry. The 6.0L V8 engine gives this affordable sports car a 0-60 time of under 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 190mph. With a tradition of pride, many Corvette owners take great care of their cars, making the Chevy Corvette an excellent affordable used sports car choice. While the models from the ‘50s and ‘60s continue to appreciate in value, you’ll find that many of the powerful late ‘90s and early ‘00s models are available in great condition starting as low as $25,000. If you’re looking for a powerful head-turner, you can’t go wrong with a Corvette.
Affordable Sports Car #2: Porsche 911
No sports car says ‘status’ like a Porsche, and the Porsche 911 leads the charge. The 991 series of the Porsche 911 began in 2012 and was the first to use a predominately aluminum construction, meaning that while the car picked up a little size, it also dropped a little weight. This helped preserve the quick direction changes and strong breaking that Porsche has become known for. While Porsche has ‘elite’ written all over it, you might be surprised that the Porsche 911 can actually provide an excellent sports car value. You’ll find plenty of pre-owned Porsche 911s under $50,000, many with low miles. Affordable luxury can be well within reach, even with a Porsche 911.
Affordable Sports Car #3: Nissan 370Z
The Nissan 370Z has quickly made a name for itself in the affordable sports car market, and with a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds that’s not the only thing it’s been doing quickly. Available in a seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual, the Nissan 370Z has a starting MSRP of under $30,000 when purchased new, which makes it an even better option when buying used. A pre-owned “Z” has become one of the most affordable sports car options without compromising power or flair. With several editions and configurations to choose from, the Nissan 370Z reflects each owner’s individuality and style.
