2018 Chevrolet Corvette
The Corvette is a classic American car and while the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette does have some new bells and whistles the design is refreshingly familiar. The interior is genuinely sporty—something that other sports cars seem to have forgotten—and the experience of driving a Corvette is exhilarating, even when you're going the speed limit.
The Corvette has always been on the more affordable end of the spectrum without sacrificing on performance or luxury, and that is as true today as it ever has been. Boasting an optional 650 horsepower supercharged Z06 engine, this is a muscular car that can fit in on both the roads and the racetracks.
Mercedes AMG GT
You're more likely to associate Mercedes with luxury coupes than you are with sports cars, but the line is becoming increasingly blurred. The AMG GT is a genuine high-performance sports car that retains all of the luxury you would expect from a Mercedes.
Each GT features a turbocharged V8 engine and power output ranges from 469 to 577 horsepower. Powerful, but the real star of the show is the interior. Featuring premium quality materials with a sporty styling, going fast has never felt so comfortable.
2018 Jaguar F-Type
Jaguars were often the car of choice for James Bond himself, and it's easy to see why. The exterior of the 2019 Jaguar F-Type is classically appealing. Understated luxury without too much flash has always been a mainstay of Jaguar's design philosophy, and that makes it the perfect car for a gentleman.
While it may look civilized on the outside, the F-Type performs like a beast. With up to 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque with the V8 engine, this Jaguar can easily keep pace with other sports cars in a much higher price range.
2018 Porsche Cayman
The Porsche brand is almost synonymous with the term "sports car", and the 2018 Cayman is a proper torchbearer. The exterior of the Cayman is familiar and iconic. It's the car that everyone's heard of and the one that everyone desires.
You would expect a car named after a crocodile to have a mean bite, and the Cayman does not disappoint with turbocharged engine options ranging from 300 to 350 horsepower. The classic Porsche handling is on full display here as well and the Cayman feels agile at all speeds. It may not be the most powerful sports car on the road, but the power and handling combined with the reasonable price and good gas mileage (up to 28 MPG highway) make for an amazing deal.
