Supercars That Don’t Cost a Fortune
Anybody who loves motor vehicles knows exactly what a supercar is. It’s the type of car with more horsepower than you could possibly imagine and more style than anything else on the streets.
Usually these supercars come with a hefty sticker price to match their performance. However, car manufacturers have been making an effort to release vehicles with supercar style specs at prices that are within reach for the average person.
There’s also a robust market for used supercars and it’s not as hard as you would think to find a great deal on the used market. Normally, people who own supercars keep them in mint condition and do not put many miles on the odometer, so you can be confident that a used supercar is likely to be in better shape than your average used car.
Here is a list of affordable supercars currently available.
2021 Chevrolet Corvette
When Chevrolet released the new C8 Corvette it took the automotive world by storm. With a base price of only $58,00, this is truly the most accessible supercar ever built. The C8 Corvette marks the first mid-engine Corvette in Chevrolet’s history. By moving the engine behind the driver, Chevrolet has been able to unlock a lot of power and performance that was never attainable in the past. The engine packs 490 horsepower and a 6.2 liter V8 engine.
If you’d like to get a new C8 Corvette we recommend contacting your local Chevrolet dealer as soon as possible. Many dealers are reporting long wait lists for this car as it is in such high demand.
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C
The Alfa Romeo 4C features a turbocharged 1.75 liter engine that packs an impressive 237 horsepower. With a cost of only $55,900, this is a bargain supercar that offers incredible driving dynamics and speed. This Alfa Romeo roadster features a mid-engine layout and a paddle shifted automatic transmission that allows you to feel in full control of the car.
While 237 horsepower may not seem like a lot in a supercar, we recommend you take this car for a drive before judging it. The Alfa Romeo’s small and lightweight design allows it to make the most of every single ounce of horsepower in the engine. Many drivers remark that it feels like it has 350 to 400 horsepower when you put your foot on the gas.
Dodge Viper GTS
Dodge discontinued the Viper model in 2017, so you’ll have to look at the used listings to get your hands on this supercar. The good news is that they are available for as little as $36,900. The Dodge Viper features iconic styling and 450 horsepower. One notable feature that makes the Dodge Viper stand out from other supercars is the V10 engine it comes equipped with.
There are current rumors that Dodge will be releasing a new version of the Viper in 2021 or 2022, although the automaker has yet to make an official announcement. The downside is that this car is not expected to feature the classic V10 engine, so if you are a purist we recommend focusing your attention on the used market.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage from the 2006-2008 model years can be bought for a reasonable $51,300. Though this is not cheap, you will be getting a true supercar featuring a 4.3 liter V8 engine and 420 horsepower.
This is the Aston Martin many people think of when they picture the iconic British automaker. Another benefit of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is that there is both a convertible and Coupe model, so you can find one that fits your exact needs.
Porsche 911 Turbo
The Porsche 911 Turbo is a true dream to drive. While you will not be able to get a brand new Turbo for under $100,000, there are a number of impeccably maintained used models for under $50,000.
We recommend looking at the 996 variation of the 911 Turbo. The 996 was released in 2001 and remained for sale until the car was updated for the 2007 model year. Like with all Porsche 911 models, you can expect to have a rear mounted twin turbo flat six engine.
It’s a common dream to own a supercar. Ask any auto enthusiast and they can probably name the exact make and model they would dream to have. The great news is that both new and used supercars can now be bought for only a fraction of what they would have cost years ago.
