If you are a fan of (affordable) sports cars and fancy getting behind the wheel for some four-wheeled fun in 2021, then there are plenty of reasonably priced models to choose from – so many in fact, that it can be hard to narrow the list down. Luckily, we’ve taken the time to put together your ultimate shortlist, so you don’t have to. Read on to discover our recommendations for the best sports cars to choose in 2021.
1. Mazda MX-5
It certainly isn’t the fastest sports car out there, but it has achieved legendary status. Yes, we are talking about the Mazda MX-5. For the typical asking price, the car punches way above its weight in terms of the driving experience, partly thanks to the enviable Japanese engineering. The latest iteration of the world’s best-selling roadster, it now boasts a brand new chassis, suspension, engine, and cabin, offering greater power with less weight.
2. Toyota GT86
Also hailing from Japan is the Toyota GT86. The GT86 range was designed for pure driving pleasure, with bold, aerodynamic styling enhanced by the stylised front bumper, grille and striking LED headlights. A sleek rear bumper with signature LED lights and distinctive 17” alloy wheels give the GT86 the attitude to match its extraordinary ability. If looks are more important than speed, then this is definitely one to consider.
3. Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
We’re going to let you try to pronounce that one correctly. However, it goes without saying that Alfa Romeo would have a spot on the podium when it comes to affordable sports cars – and the Giulia Quadrifoglio well and truly deserves its place on this list as a serious challenger to the BMW or Mercedes C63 AMG (not that we have anything against German automobile manufacturing!). Quite simply, it represents everything the Italians are famous for – beauty, charisma and a whole heap of fun. The interior leaves a little to be desired, but this is definitely a car that was designed to be driven.
4. Audi R8
Talking about German engineering, let’s mention the Audi R8 – a powerful and comfortable sports car that you can use every day. It’s a reasonably-priced alternative to mega-fast (and mega-expensive) machines such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren, but gives you a real taste of what it feels like to drive a serious machine that is designed to impress. A real workhorse that combines practicality with pleasure.
5. Porsche 718 Boxster
Completing our list is the Porsche Boxster. It is fast, handles brilliantly and boasts a high-quality interior. Plus, it’s a Porsche. What more do we need to say. The only thing to bear in mind is that unlike the other models listed, many of the features that make this car truly special are optional extras that do not come cheap – so you’ll want to really think about your budget.
