The sports car enthusiasts pick their own set of wheels for many reasons, for instance, you might think that the roaring thrum of the muscular engine is nothing short of sweet melody to your years. Or maybe you prize the Lissom handling and rapidness that sets most of the sports cars apart from luxury cars and sedans.
Irrespective of what comes first to your mind when you think about the best sports cars, there is something on our list of the best sports cars that is guaranteed to quicken the pace of your heart.
The List of Best Sports Cars
- Jaguar F-Type
- Porsche 911 Carreraa
- Lotus Evora
- BMW i8
- Nissan GT-R
- Lexus LC
- Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
- Maserati Gran Turismo
- Alfa Romeo 4C
- BMW Z4
The F-Type displays that the Jaguar is capable of producing a car of genuine sporting specialism and any German manufacturer. It is a machine of unmatchable allure and just like the E-Type it has great value.
Even though the car falls short of truly being an exception as it has various imperfections but even then it is another type of landmark in the 21st century of recasting the Jaguar brand.
It is an inspired car but it is not encumbered by the sporting legend of its maker. Even though it might not be perfect, it is wonderful. Pricing starts from $107,012. Based on Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).
Porsche 911 Carrera
The 911 is the enhanced version, without doubt, it is easier to have than before and finer to drive, for the most part. It is all the good parts of the first generation of the 991 nipped and improved.
Then there is the major bit that will sadden the purists. If you have never had the pleasure of driving a naturally aspirated 911, the arrival of the turbocharged Carrera will not be that much of a big deal. There are two thing to note and first one is driving 911 Carrera is like moving to electric steering and water cooling, it is unavoidable and we will get used to it, and the second thing is that is still a very good engine and the best in the sports cars. The car current market price is average $91,783.
The Evora is the genuine benchmark and also an object lesson in how to make any car handle, steer, and ride. It could even take a lot of power than the 410bhp that it is currently permitted.
There is no other car on sale presently with such superior dynamic ability like Evora’s.
Concessions elsewhere, though means that ultimately Lotus Evora still remains a car for the pursuit of handling. That is fine for a set of weekend wheels or second car, but tougher to justify when you are talking about 70,000 pound GT model. Pricing from $149,050 to 199,210. Based on third party pricing data.
The BMW i8 is one of the most compelling sports cars that we have tested in years and not only because it is a mesmerizing power train as well as unusual yet appealing dynamics but also because of how elegantly finishes it feels as a machine both internally and externally and how easy it will be to live with.
The fact that its dynamics falls short of the best that we had expected of the sports and the balance is even a touch off for a GT car is a minor drawback that can be overlooked.
The BMW i8 will pinch the sales from 911 without a doubt but the Porsche will still hold the position of fat better to drive. The car Price Starting at $144,395.
No matter how long the tooth becomes, Godzilla is in a bad health. If speed is what you crave then there is nothing better below the range of 100k pound. However, if the speed is probably not the only thing that you want in sports cars then Nissan knows how to delight the racer in you.
It had made an attempt to make the GT-R a more luxurious, mature axe-wielding, and more rounded mentalist of a device, and it has made the difference, although not a big one.
Fragility is not this car’s forte but compared with the increasingly digital feeing cars launched, the GT-R provides more charm than it ever did. Price Starting at $111,585.
As a keen driver, you find yourself inclining towards Lexus LC. It possesses a superbly charismatic as well as the fascinating V8 engine, including the balanced spry and also the handling that makes it feel at times like the most natural rival for the Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type than the Mercedes S-class coupe.
It seems heavy, large, leaden-footed and a bit cumbersome on road but you never quite manage to escape the feeling of the ambivalence towards the car.
Depending on how much you are moved by its virtues or even irked by its certain shortcomings, this car is either a rough diamond or the dreaded egg curate. However, for us, it is much closer to the former. 2018 Lexus LC price is $92,000 – $96,510 MSRP.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
In case you were asked to predict how Corvette Stingray would turn out when based on its paper specifications, then we bet that you would not be wide of the mark. It is an old-school, large supercar with the brawny naturally aspirated engine, rear-wheel drive, and a manual gearbox.
We know that it sounds traditional because to a certain extent it is but when it comes to its interiors, it is a quantum leap over the model that it has replaced.
There is a lot of ability here, which is greatly enjoyable when you are able to find the appropriate places to deploy it. Chevrolet Corvette is $55,495 – $83,495 MSRP for 2018.
This Maserati has got many basics right and that makes the few remaining failures all the more frustrating. How tough could it be to get the seating position right, for instance, or even to fix the former trim problem or to perfect the adjustable damping?
More complicated and thus more forgivable is that just irregularly we wish that the GT had more guts and glory and hit a little bit harder.
While we cannot ignore these teething issues in our overall rating, we will be the first to admit that the Granturismo still is a truly desirable sports car.
For the first time that too in a long time, you will not have to make any excuses for buying and running a Maserati. 2018 Maserati GranTurismo Price $136,475 MSRP.
Alfa Romeo 4C
4C is an outstanding driver’s car, though it will not suit everyone. It has a few flaws. Some will say that Porsche Cayman is more finished and grown up and they are right about it. It is for certain more of a car that you could just easily drive to work.
However, frankly, the handful of people who purchase one per year will not think much. They will not be thinking about the Porsches. They will be the owners of the Alfa 4C and they will figure out that one those cars seriously stand out from the crowd. Price Starting at $57,495.
The transplant in the Z4 has altered its character. It is a bit more ill-tempered, louder, and also more than likely to spit in public. Its engine is not that rough but there is a little bit of coarseness from the engine as well as exhaust under stress. Its bark is far more appropriate for a sports car and that makes BMW Z4 more alive and exciting.
BMW claims that the new engine will bring 0-to-60 acceleration with manual down by 1.5 to 5.5 second. Expect the sprint to take a couple more tens with its transmission. Average price paid $32,489 – $43,240.
