Top 10 Affordable Sport Car 2013

The Most Affordable Sports Cars segment is heating up for 2013. Lets take a look at some of the exciting options for buyers for the 2013 model year. The base MSRP found below does not include destination. You may not agree with the list, but one thing’s for sure, these cars have all stirred our hearts and minds. These are the cars that breathe life into our dreams at night. Sure, we’d all love to have a Lamborghini, but what’s realistic and what’s not are two different things. And every one of these sports cars are very realistic for Americans to own and drive.

1.  2011 Chevrolet Corvette | Price: $48,95- $111,100 | ZR1 0-60 in 3.4 seconds & 1/4 in 11.8
Corvette was born out of the post-war sports-car boom, at an optimistic time when nearly anything seemed possible, including the world’s largest automaker building a two-seat “image” car. The Corvette is now a mainstay in the Chevrolet lineup and considered one of the best performance cars of all time. The latest in the Corvette line is the ZR1($111,100), which is itself the revival of a long history of souped up ‘Vettes, and this newest version is the most powerful Corvette ever. Using a supercharged version of the base-model LS9, this model produces 620 spleen-busting horsepower, and moves the carbon fiber and aluminum body around the Nurburgring faster than any other production car in the world to date.  Jeremy Clarkson declared the ZR1 the 2009 Performance Car of the Year.  It is certainly the best sports car statistically America has ever produced, thus propelling it atop our Top 10 list.
2.  2011 Nissan GT-R R35 | Price: $84,060 – $88,340 | 0-60 in 3.2 & 1/4 in
This was originally an honorable mention selection, however I knew we would have received bomb threats.  This car is possibly one of the best cars to ever come across our shores from Japan.  The Nissan GT-R is all-wheel drive with a twin-turbo 6 cylinder engine, producing 485 bhp at 6400 rpm and 434 lb·ft at 3200-5200 rpm and can reach a top speed of 193 mph and does 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. For good reason, the GT-R has retained its Skyline predecessor’s nickname, “Godzilla”.
3.  Mazda RX7 | Price: $37,800 | 1995 Mazda RX-7 R2 0-60 in 5.0 & 14.0 in 1/4 mile
The Mazda RX-7 is a sports car by the Japanese automaker Mazda. It was produced from 1978 to 2002, with the third and final iteration of the highly popular RX-7 hitting the streets of Japan in 1992, and America a year later. Power was generated by the first-ever mass-produced sequential twin-turbocharger system to export from Japan, an extremely complex piece of machinery that gave the RX-7 a wide and usable torque curve throughout the entire RPM range. Car and Driver voted it to their 10 Best list ’93-95, and Playboy awarded the RX-7 victor in a head-to-head contest against the Dodge Viper. Handling was world class, and to this day remains one of the finest handling cars of all time thanks in part to its front-mid-engine layout, and its futuristic looks have kept the car looking sexy after all these years.  This car still remains one of the most sought after performance cars.
4.  Toyota Supra Mark IV | Price: $31,078 – $40,508 | 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo 0-60 in 5.1 & 1/4 in 13.6
Based off the Celica platform, the Mark IV Supra was a more performance oriented car than previous versions. Utilizing a Sequential Twin Turbo configuration similar to the RX-7, the Supra was capable of 0-60 runs of 4.6 seconds and a top speed in excess of 170mph, all very impressive stats for the mid-’90s. What was most impressive, though, was the durability of the 3L 2JZ-GTE Inline 6. These cars were capable of pavement-pealing 800 to 1000 horsepower figures without major modifications, and as such the Supra developed its own cult following within the tuner market, and remains one of the most highly sought after Japanese sports cars in history. You want one? Good luck finding one unmolested.
5.  2011 Ford Mustang | Price: $22,145 – $37,845 | 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 0-60 mph 4.5 1/4 mile 12.8 & 2010 Ford Mustang GT 0-60 mph 4.9 1/4 mile 13.5
The Ford Mustang doesn’t need much of an introduction. Production of the first Mustang began in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964 and the car was introduced to the public on April 17, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. The 1965 Mustang won the Tiffany Gold Medal for excellence in American design, the first automobile ever to do so. The Mustang was on the Car and Driver Ten Best list in 1983, 1987, 1988, 2005, and 2006. It won the Motor Trend Car of the Year award in 1974 and 1994. In 2005 it was runner-up to the Chrysler 300 for the North American Car of the Year award. Ford revised all the Mustang’s engines for 2011. The new V6 is a smaller 3.7 L aluminum block engine weighing 40 lb lighter than the outgoing version. The engine produces 305 hp and 280 lb·ft of torque. Ford announced on December 28, 2009 that the 2011 Mustang GT would feature a 5.0 engine that produces 412 horsepower and 390 lb·ft of torque on 91 octane fuel.
