"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!!

Please...... A Hyundai Genesis, Mazda Speed3 and a VW Golf??? What Idiot would list these in the same breath with Corvette, Mustang and Cadillac as a Sports Car?

Yeah, I wanted to buy one of those...whatevers...but I can't remember where I put that bag with the spare $80k in it...oh wait, now I remember, I put it down my kids throats when they were whining about I'm just struggling my @$$ off trying to buy a tank of gas to get myself to the doctor's office...does ANYBODY know anything about reality???

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.

This has got to be the worst top 10 sports car list ever.  No matter what their criteria for choosing was.

This is retarded. Best bang for your buck??? Sports cars you can actually afford?????!!!!!????!!!! AYFS?Confused You have a 60k+ and and a 84k dollar car on this list? Thumbs downOH WOW EPIC WIN THERE !!! Mustang 22k? I call BS you can't touch them for under 25k new with a V8. An 84K buck GTR??? Eye-rollingand then you throw a GTI in the mix? The GTI I can see but there is also now way your touching a GTI for that price. Get real. A Vette and a lotus?? Smoke some more crack. I could afford 35k for a sports car but am I going to go out and spend 35k on one of these freakin cars today???? NO!!! either is the other half of the nation with a tid bit of common sense. Cars today are WAY!!! over priced. way way way way way over priced. At 35k bucks they cost almost 1/4 of the price of my house cost me last year and wont give me jack shiznit in return after 10 years. They are disposable and look like dog crap after only 5 years (of every day driving and regular care) and worth only 1/4 of what you paid for it. Very soon a fricken bicycle is gona cost you 10k bucks.
