The traditional definition of a sports car is a vehicle with two doors and two seats. These cars also usually expect their owners to accept a few sacrifices regarding comfort and practicality in the quest for the optimal driving experience. Such vehicles are available at many price points, but even when we choose 10 of the best sports cars under $75,000, we found many great options well below that figure — especially if we're flexible with that strict definition and include a wider variety of great performance machines.
We know that sports-car enthusiasts will prefer that the bulk of their dollars goes toward the pursuit of performance excellence. However, not every great sports car below $75,000 will be difficult to get into, teeth-rattling on the move, and virtually impossible to clamber out of. For this kind of money, it’s not unreasonable to expect some refinement as well. Which of these cars would be top of your wish list?
