Top 10 Sports Cars by Annual Fuel Cost
Driving fun and fuel economy aren't always oxymorons
So you want to have fun behind the wheel, but you worry sports cars aren't great on gas. Fear not: We've assembled a list of 10 fun cars for 2008 with low annual fuel costs. We started with the EPA's annual fuel-cost ratings, which reflect the current national average gas price and assume 15,000 miles divided between 55 percent city and 45 percent highway. We picked the highest-mileage transmission choice available in a given car. When annual fuel cost was the same, we looked for a net gain between city and highway efficiency, and ultimately used our star ratings – a quick look at our opinion on each vehicle – as a tiebreaker.
