2013 Chevrolet Camaro
Why is the Chevy Camaro consistently one of the most popular sports cars? It could be its sexy style, serious horsepower (323-horsepower V6 or 426-horsepower V8) or maybe its starting price of $23,345. Did we mention it also gets 30 mpg on the highway?
If you want to go all out, consider the BMW Z4. This luxury sports car delivers all the fun of a roadster with the ultimate driving experience of a BMW. A power-retractable hardtop roof, ample legroom and roomy trunk are all indulgences you won't find in most two-seat roadsters.
Christina Selter, editor of HerHighway.com, cautions against buying a sports car on impulse.
"You are going to keep this car for 7+ years, so make sure it is going to fit your lifestyle."
If kids are in the future, you might want to go for a crossover instead.
