"the new camaro looks more like a family car rather than a muscle car"
Carl, what kind of family car do you have?
If you want bang for the buck, what about the $25K Subaru WRX or even the $30K STi?
The original tag line was "sports cars you can actually afford" but was changed to that above.
I know why. Using the metric from other financial articles that a car should not cost more than 40% of your annual income, the above list would require incomes between $55,000 and $210,000!
The average income in the US is about $45,000, so none of these would be affordable to the average person.
Point me in the direction of the $18,000 sports car. Oh wait, they don't exist.
Bang for the buck??? How is it a 60 to 80 thousand dollar car a bang for the buck? Cars in the 20s ok but the rest is just crazy!!
I'm very fond of my Lotus. Although bang for your buck I'd probably go with the Corvette. Still have a Miata in the drive and I've owned lots of Camaro's, Mustangs, Datsun Z's
I thought this article said "affordable." While yes, the MX-5, Genesis, Mustang, and Mazdaspeed3 are affordable, the Corvette, Elise and (really, you think that this is affordable?) GT-R are not sports cars for the every day person.
Add in costs to maintain and insurance, and most of these cars are not in any way affordable.
