Today's safest sports cars combine top-notch driving dynamics with high-tech driver-assistance features. In fact, despite their focus on going forward, many of them even offer cutting-edge technologies like automatic emergency braking — sometimes for both forward and reverse driving scenarios. And all supply a standard rearview camera.
But generally speaking, there is a bit of a tradeoff here: In most cases, the sportier the sports car, the fewer safety features you get. Also, very few of the high-end entries are crash-tested by either NHTSA or the IIHS. But even with a narrowed field, we’ve still found a healthy variety of fast yet safe performers, ranging from European sport sedans to all-American muscle cars.
