Budget performance cars are a critical part of the mod life. They’re an affordable option for young enthusiasts just entering the market—and many times, drivers develop lifetime allegiances to the makes or models that they start with. Luckily for you, many automakers are focusing on affordable performance in 2015. So Revvolution decided to put together a list of this model year’s fastest entry-level performance cars. The criteria were simple: under $35,000, over 200 horsepower, zero to 60 times under 6 seconds and quarter-mile times under 14 seconds.
Several drool-worthy performance cars make their world debuts tomorrow, January 12, at the 2015 NAIAS in Detroit. And team Revvolution is already on-site and ready to bring you each reveal as they happen.
Now that 2015 is here, some of those machines are more than 10 years old. Which means that we no longer have to buy new to score one helluva performance bargain! So we dug through the archives and came up with the 9 best used performance cars that can be bought for under 30 grand.
