5) Porsche 911
For over 50 years now, the Porsche 911 has been wowing drivers with its speed, precision, and quality engineering. No money for a new model? No problem – models from the mid-2000s now go for around $50K. For that, you’re getting a car that’ll hit 60mph in anywhere from 3.5-4.5 seconds, depending on model.
6) Lotus Exige
The Lotus Exige is an interesting little car. Produced by the esteemed British marque since 2000, it is a great little racer, designed to do one thing: go fast. Most models’ top speeds sit in the high 140s, despite the small 1.8L engine. Models from the late-2000s can now be had for around $60K.
