13 Pricey Sports Cars and Their Affordable Alternatives

Porsche recently unveiled the latest iteration of the quintessential sports car – the 992.2-gen Porsche 911. We predict you’ll be hearing a lot about this sports car for a long time. Even folks who’ve never seen the inside of the car will have plenty to say about the 911’s departure from its traditional naturally-aspirated flat-sixes to a hybrid drive system. It marks the first time in over six decades that Porsche would equip a road-going 911 with a hybrid powertrain. It probably won’t matter what you think of this shift if you can’t fork over around $115,000 to get one. It doesn’t have to be a sad reality, though. There’s always an Emira for every Evija: A 370Z for every 8 Series. Indeed, the market brims with alternatives that capture these elite sports cars’ spirit, performance, and excitement at a fraction of the cost.
