10. 1992 Chevrolet Corvette C4

When the C4 debuted in 1984, it was one of the quickest cars on the market, not just in America but globally.



9. 2002 Audi TT

The first-generation Audi TT is easily one of the most underrated sports cars of the 2000s. It offered truly unique and somewhat quirky looks, a comfortable cabin, and great handling.



8. 2008 Pontiac Solstice

Speaking of underrated, the Solstice should really get more credit. These cool-looking roadsters were designed to compete with extremely-popular Japanese sports cars such as Mazda Miata and Honda S2000.



7. 1979 Mazda RX-7

These beautiful coupes embodied the sports car recipe with their front-engine RWD setup and were good for up to 135 horsepower.



6. 2000 Porsche Boxster

Often referred to as the "poor man's Porsche," the Boxster will always be there for enthusiasts looking to enjoy one of the best roadsters ever built without breaking the bank.



5. 2006 Ford Mustang GT - $11,000

The Ford Mustang GT is not only good for straight-line speed, but post-2005 models became very adept at handling as well.



4. Nissan 350Z - $11,500

The Nissan 350Z is in effect, the spiritual successor to the companies long line of Z coupes. A 300bhp 3.5 liter V6 is a very good return for less than $15,000 and for that you can probably expect to pick up a 2006 model.



3. Porsche 928 - $10,000

A classic Porsche with pop-up headlights, the 928 is a favorite of many Porsche collectors for its simple yet sleek lines and gorgeous interior.



2. Subaru WRX STI - $15,000

Still in production, the Subaru WRX is synonymous with the brand's glory days in the World Rally Championship, with the likes of Colin McCrae and Carlos Sainz at the wheel.



1. Chevrolet Corvette C5 - $14,500

Not only is the Corvette C6 in this budget range, but so is the C5! Perhaps a bit more stylish than its later sibling, its performance-to-price ratio is great if you can get one for a good price.



Most car enthusiasts dream of owning a Ferrari, Porsche, or Lamborghini, but realistically, not many of us will ever get the chance to own one. However, buying a sports car at a reasonable price no longer has to be a pipe dream thanks to depreciation.
