But we do now as well that not everybody is able to spend that much money to fullfill his dream of the perfect sportscar, no matter if we´re talking about buying the car or „just“ renting it. That´s why we want to check if it´s possible to get a real supercar for a fair price.
Top 5 affordable sportscars
First things first: Out criteria for a real sportscar is a dynamic design, 2 seats, at least 200 HP and a rear wheel/all wheel drive.

5. Ford Mustang

4. Toyota GT86
Who prefers a modern car but still wants it to be a real sportscar should take a look at the Toyota GT86. A fast 6-Gear-Manual, rear wheel drive and perfectly balanced – the perfect combination for enjoying every ride. Can be bought for around 13.000€, or just go ahead and rent a GT86 for a really cheap price.
3. Chevrolet Corvette
Just like the Porsche 911 is an idol for all German sportscar fans, the Chevrolet Corvette acts the same for Americans. Combining a huge V8-engine with a lightweight construction and even more impressing driving dynamics! The Corvette C4 can be found on several portals for round about 6000€, to rent a corvette is also possible for around 300€ a day
2. Porsche Boxster
Many call him a „womens car“ even though this car has a lot of potential. A great mid-engie, lightweight construction and convertible rooftop creates lots of fun and emotions driving this Porsche. 5000€ is enough to get one of these, of course the Porsche Boxster is also rentable.
1. Nissan 350Z / 370Z
It´s not only that this car showed up in several Fast&Furious movies. The 350Z, or as the modern series is called: 370Z, is well known for delivering a superior driving experience. The manual gearbox in combination with the rear wheel drive allows you to drift whenever you like to. If you don´t have 100.000 bucks for the supercar Nissan GT-R, the Nissan 350Z / 370Z is definitely a great choice for you. The prices for our personal winner start at 5000€.
