1. Mazda MX-5
The Mazda MX-5 is one of the best sports cars for sale to enthusiasts, regardless of price.
The Mazda may not be such a practical everyday proposition, its handling is simply exceptional. Powered by a choice of 1.5 or 2.0-liter gas petrol engines, it’s less about absolute performance and more about handling and enjoyment.
One of the best manual gearboxes available. The MX-5’s seats provide support rather than incredibly figure-hugging, and the cabin is very comfortable. Tall occupants may have a hard time getting comfortable.
2. Porsche 911
The latest Porsche 911 is the most complete yet; it’s fast, sophisticated, and completely usable in everyday life. The current crop of Carrera S and 4S models is as fast as the previous generation Carrera GTS and not far behind the Turbo of a decade ago, such as the pace of the 911’s continued evolution.
Now there are Coupe, Cabriolet, and Targa versions of the 992 generations to choose from, with rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel configurations. The Carrera S and Carrera 4S models make up the entire 992 generation 911 lineup for now, but the mandatory GTS, GT3, and Turbo models will arrive in due course. At the top is the wild 641bhp Turbo S variant, which manages the sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.7 seconds and a maximum of 205mph.
Our pick from the latest range is the standard Carrera S coupe with two-wheel drive. With 444bhp on tap, it covers 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds; The car’s signature flat six-cylinder vehicle remains distinctive, despite its pair of turbochargers, while the standard dual-clutch PDK gearbox offers ultra-fast shifting.
The 911’s spacious capacity is what impresses the most. It is at the same time an attractive car within sports cars. A long-legged passenger car and a comfortable companion in the city if necessary, all regardless of road conditions.
3. Alpine A110
Based on a rich history of rear-engined racing and sports cars, the latest Alpine A110 is styled that closely resembles the iconic 1960s offering from the French brand of the same name. However, it is as modern as it sounds; A center-mounted turbocharged four-cylinder dual-clutch gearbox and a perfectly judged chassis sit underneath the A110’s pretty retro-styled bodywork.
The A110 generates 249 hp with its 1.8-liter Renault engine. That might not sound like much at this company, but it’s more than enough when the car itself weighs a mere 1,098kg. The Alpine is just over 300kg lighter than an Audi TTS, and it is this low weight that defines the driving experience.
Unlike its rivals, the German sports cars, the A110 offers more pure and reduced handling. It flows down the road with a delicacy that can only be found in such a lightweight car, while the perfect balance, sweet steering, and just a hint of rocking through the suspension help inspire confidence. The Alpine is also refreshingly compact, and thanks to a great forward view, it’s super easy to position and not at all intimidating to drive.
4. Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman
The Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman are the German automaker’s entry-level hardtop and convertible sports cars, respectively, and each offers a similar combination of performance and handling that has seen them remain among our favorite sports machines for years.
Unlike its older 911 brother, the 718 manages with a four-cylinder engine that is something of a weak point in an excellent package. The standard car gets 296 bhp, but the S models get a boost to 345 bhp. Both versions of this engine are more effective than emotional; You will have to look elsewhere for an interesting note about the engine.
The PDK six-speed and seven-speed manual dual-clutch gearboxes are excellent to use, and you’ll forget about the lack of good noise once you hit a series of corners. Beautiful steering, great grip, and brilliantly damped ride combine to make the 718 one of the best sports cars from a driver’s perspective. It’s more expensive than some rivals, but you won’t regret paying for the Porsche sports car experience. The residues must also be strong.
5. McLaren 570S
McLaren’s most popular model is a direct rival to the Porsche 911, Audi R8, and Mercedes-AMG GT. As such, the 570S offers super sports car performance with a nod to everyday usability.
It’s hooked up to a big seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and while it doesn’t sound great, the engine is devastatingly effective.
The 570S dispenses with the sophisticated chassis control system of its big brother 720S but is not held back by its conventional adaptive dampers and anti-roll bars. The precise steering, huge reserves of grip, and beautiful suspension action make it one of the best sports cars available.
6. Mercedes-AMG C 63 S
Like many AMG products, the C 63 S offers a muscular version of a popular formula. He is not lacking incompetence, but his character is what sets him apart. A 4.0-liter Biturbo V8 powers 503bhp, with 700Nm of torque available to deliver brutal off-line performance. Both cars have a sleek nine-speed automatic gearbox.
There is also balance to go with that muscle. AMG has transformed the standard C-Class into a sports saloon (more family, coupe, and cabriolet ) that is more composed than an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and as fun as a BMW M3 or M4. Unlike the C 43, there is no four-wheel drive; A revised nine-stage traction control system and a smart electronically controlled limited-slip differential help bring power to the road, while a variety of driving modes allow the car to be configured for the conditions at hand.
Elsewhere, the usual Mercedes kit and build quality are present, with a focus on luxury technology. The C 63 S is expensive but represents a lot of cars for the money – if you can afford the associated running costs, few come close to matching its capacity range.
7. BMW M2 Competition
The original M2 had all the makings of an M car, a 365 hp 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbo, rear-wheel drive, and a six-speed manual gearbox. The regular M2 has now been withdrawn from sale, as the new M2 Competition essentially makes it obsolete.
The M2 Comp’s main story is under the hood, where you’ll find a 404 bhp 3.0-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo ballistic from the M4. The engine has drastically changed the character of the car. The old car felt shocking in the midrange, but the extra turbo on the Comp helps accelerate the car harder towards the red line. Despite the two turbos, the engine is responsive and feels more connected to your right foot than other recent M cars; this feeling is probably enhanced by the more natural-sounding escape note.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper M car without smile-inducing handling. The old M2 handled brilliantly, but the new Comp’s bodywork has been reinforced with carbon fiber and the suspension has been buttressed but otherwise untouched. There are also stronger brakes so you can have more fun for longer.
8. Nissan GT-R
It is designed to use its 1,754 kg weight to its advantage; Acceleration off-line is remarkable, as is ground speed. Powered by a hand-built 3.8-liter Biturbo V6 engine developing 562bhp and with a variety of driver assistance systems, it is perhaps the fastest and most effortless sports car on sale. Light, fast steering, and tight chassis provide great agility; Wider tires and quick with 4WD combine to provide large reserves of grip.
Smoother low-speed shifting, improved sound dampening and a more luxurious cabin help ease the limit without diluting the GT-R’s character. It’s more usable every day, but it can still do 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds.
9. Toyota GR Supra
The return of the Toyota Supra has been controversial for the sports car market. 17 years after the beloved Mk4 Supra ended production, Toyota finally brought back the Supra name. While the internet may be abuzz with the amount of information BMW had during development, no one can deny that the new Supra is an exquisite driving car.
BMW’s 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine produces a healthy 335bhp and 500Nm of torque. While this is quite a departure from the 404 hp of the BMW M2 Competition, the Supra holds its own in the handling department versus the Alpine A110 and Porsche 718 Cayman. 0-62 mph is driven in just 4.3 seconds, suggesting some serious performance, but as with the car before it, there are sure to be a ton of aftermarket performance mods available.
The interior is heavily reliant on BMW parts and this brings advantages in terms of quality and infotainment technology compared to Toyota’s recent efforts. The driving experience was clearly and legitimately prioritized in the development of the Supra, and for sheer driving excitement, there is nothing better.
10. Ford Mustang
It’s practically a competing BMW M4 powered by a 5.0-liter V8; 0-62 mph takes 4.3 seconds and top speed is limited to 155 mph. It’s not as refined, polished, well-built, or composed as its more expensive rivals, but little can detract from its wealth of character. Enthusiasts will never tire of the noise from its quad tailpipes.
While muscle cars aren’t known for being solid on a winding road, and they don’t often fall into the sports car category, the latest Mustang does admirably. It’s not the last word on finesse, but its recently revised chassis is more controlled than ever, especially with adaptive dampers. Heavy but precise steering is good, while the six-speed manual is used much better than the slightly lethargic 10-speed automatic. Bonus points go to the Mustang for being the only car on this list with a “Drag” mode.
