10 Affordable Used Sports Cars

2015 Porsche Boxster

If you’d love to get behind the wheel of a sporty car but think that they’re probably a waste of money, then one of our 10 affordable used sports cars should be right up your alley. There are two main reasons to buy a used car: to get into something you would otherwise be unable to afford or to let someone else pay for the depreciation that comes from driving a new car off the dealership lot. Of course, a used vehicle is a bit of an unknown, which means that you do have to assume some risk, especially if you are buying a car that’s coming out of warranty. But if that tradeoff seems worth it, then the next few pages are for you.

2016 Jaguar F-Type

The Jaguar F-Type is one of the best-looking and best-sounding sports cars on the market today, and for around $40,000 you can get into a nice used model powered by Jaguar’s supercharged V6 engine. We realize that $40,000 might not seem that affordable at first, but consider that a new F-Type powered by the same engine starts at around $70,000. Developing 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, it manages to sound just as good if not better than the V8 and provides more than enough thrust to get the F-Type moving quickly. Both an eight-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission are available, and though it’s a bit slower to 60 mph, we’d still choose the manual. Jaguar F-Type Inventory.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette

When it comes to sports car bang for your buck, just about the only thing that beats a new Corvette is a used Corvette. It might be the most expensive car on our list, but for under $40,000 you can pick up a fairly low-mile car with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 making a healthy 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. That power can be sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, but sports car purists will choose the seven-speed manual. The Corvette is great fun to drive, with excellent handling and addictive amounts of power, but it’s also remarkably usable day-to-day, especially on the highway with its fuel economy rating of 28 miles per gallon.
