Most Affordable Sports Cars Under $35,000

When you say "sports car," most people think of the high performance exotic cars like Ferrari, Porsche, or Lamborghini.

Sporty and performance doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg. Do you really need a vehicle that will go 200+ miles per hour and how often are you going to peg the speedometer, legally, anyway?

There are several well equipped sports cars available to consumers under $35,000 that not only handle well, but are also fun to drive on a daily basis.

Many of the vehicles on the list below actually enter the market place closer to a $25,000 list price. However, if you're going to buy a sports car you might as well get a few extra "bells-and-whistles" for you morning commute to work.

If you're considering the purchase a sports car in 2015. Use an online service to get the best price and not have to worry about dealing with frontline car salesman at the dealership. I recommend Edmunds and TrueCar to request free no-obligation price quotes.

These companies will let you know what others are paying for the vehicle you're considering, and also what dealers in your local area are more willing to discount the vehicle for you.
