Best Sports Cars for 2023

Sports cars offer an exhilarating driving experience that captivates enthusiasts like ourselves. When it comes to these vehicles, conventional necessities such as fuel efficiency, storage capacity, and rear seating occasionally take a back seat to the sheer thrill of driving and the exhilaration of acceleration and handling. Sports cars span a wide spectrum of excitement from the agile and lightweight Mazda MX-5 Miata to the luxurious and high-performance Porsche 911 Turbo. However, despite their variations, these two examples and most others in this category are united by one common element: the satisfaction they bring to drivers. Beyond being enjoyable to drive, these 14 sports cars featured below possess fundamental qualities that distinguish them as exceptional vehicles, setting them apart from merely good ones.

List of Best 14 Sports Cars:

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 effortlessly straddles the line between everyday practicality and racetrack prowess. Built upon the foundation of the already impressive Camaro, the ZL1 emerges as a force to be reckoned with, rendering the mighty 455-hp Camaro LT1 and SS trims as mere gusts of wind in comparison. The ZL1 owes its dominance to its exclusive 650-hp supercharged V-8 engine, propelling it forward with relentless power, while its Goodyear F1 tires provide remarkable traction akin to sticky s'mores. For those seeking even greater performance, an optional 1LE performance package awakens a ferocious beast within. This package introduces wider and stickier tires, adjustable camber plates on each corner, and Multimatic's Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers.

Powering all models is a spirited 181-horsepower four-cylinder engine, paired with a standard six-speed manual gearbox that harkens back to the golden age of sports cars. While an automatic transmission is available, the true essence of the Miata is best experienced through its engaging manual transmission, making every drive an immersive and thrilling adventure.

The Subaru BRZ is an exhilarating and affordable sports car that delivers a thrilling driving experience. As the mechanical twin of the Toyota GR86, it prioritizes fun behind the wheel. With its compact size, lightweight design, and nimble handling, the BRZ is a recipe for entertainment, especially for enthusiasts of compact rear-wheel-drive coupes. It has earned a well-deserved spot on our 10Best cars list. Powering the BRZ is Subaru's 2.4-liter flat-four engine, producing 228 horsepower, providing ample performance for this small 2+2 sports car. The BRZ's manual transmission is a delight, offering confident shifts with low effort. The car's responsive handling and impressive cornering grip make it a perfect companion for autocross events. Surprisingly, the BRZ is also practical, with useful interior storage cubbies and a rear jump seat reminiscent of the Porsche 911, capable of accommodating a small passenger or groceries. Folding down the rear seat even allows for additional cargo space, making room for a second set of sticky tires, perfect for those autocross adventures.

Toyota GR86

  • Engine: 2.4-liter naturally aspirated flat-4 engine

  • Horsepower: 228 horsepower

  • Torque: 184 lb-ft of torque

  • Transmission: 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters

  • Drive Type: Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD)

  • Suspension: Independent MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension

  • Brakes: Four-wheel ventilated disc brakes

  • Tires: High-performance tires

  • Acceleration (0-60 mph): Approximately 6.1 seconds (manual transmission)

  • Top Speed: Estimated 140 mph

  • Infotainment: 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity

  • Safety: Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver-assistance features, including Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

The 2023 Toyota GR86 has made significant strides as a rear-wheel-drive coupe, earning the most improved sports car title. Its second generation, introduced in 2022, addressed the main concern with the original model—a lackluster engine. The latest GR86 is powered by a 228-horsepower flat-four engine, delivering robust mid-range power. While a six-speed manual transmission comes standard and is the preferred choice, a six-speed automatic option is available. However, we highly recommend sticking with the manual transmission for the ultimate driving experience. Similar to the BRZ, the GR86 is small, affordable, and features a rear seat reminiscent of the Porsche 911, allowing you to bring along a small companion. Its hatchback body also provides practical cargo space, a feature absent in the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Subaru BRZ, serving as the GR86's mechanical twin, offers a nearly identical driving experience, leaving the badge preference as the deciding factor. The GR86, designed for playful driving, does suffer from some road noise, particularly at higher speeds, and the engine's sound may not be concert-worthy. Nevertheless, the GR86 excels in cornering grip, balance, precise steering, and a rev-happy engine, making it an enjoyable companion on any road. It embodies everything you'd expect from an entry-level sports car.

Developed alongside the BMW Z4 convertible, the GR Supra shares similar build quality and features a sleek interior with attractive materials. While the base model offers ample power with its 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the optional 382-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter BMW inline-six takes the performance to new heights, propelling this two-seater with incredible speed.
