The years have been kind to driving enthusiasts. Despite the threat of a $2 liter of fuel and emission restrictions, some OEMs have always served up some very impressive cars to drive. With a $50k budget, here are 10 of our favourites.
2011/2012 BMW M3
The last of the normally aspirated V8 Bimmers designed for driving.
2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE
Although a few K over the $50k mark, likely the most entertaining GM car other than the current Vette.
2012/2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Not only a collector car but the best driving Mustang EVER.
2007/2008 Honda S2000
High-revving top down fun with brilliant handling. Also, a future collectable.
2017 Mazda MX-5
Pound for pound, the best driving and most involving car one can buy.
2017 MINI JCW 3-door
And only this JCW. The others are too fat and heavy.
2008 Porsche Cayman S
One of the best track/daily cars money can buy.
2018 Subaru WRX STI
All-condition and season street legal rallye car.
2017 Toyota 86
Lightweight, nimble and fully exploitable.
2017 Volkswagen Golf R
The ideal combination of speed, refinement, and driving pleasure.
