If you want truly blistering 0-60 times you will have to look at cars that are well over $100,000. Great automakers like Aston-Martin, Porsche, and Ferrari offer the times that you want, but not for a price that most people can afford, especially if they are planning to finance their purchase. Here are five cars that offer solid speeds from 0 to 60, but cost less than $30,000.
- Ford Mustang GT and Coupe
- Subaru Impreza WRX
- Hyundai Genesis 3.8 R-Spec Coupe
- Hyundai Sonata SE
- Kia Optima SX
There were several cars that were on the cusp of making the list, but cost just over the 30K threshold. Chevy Camaro was one of them, coming in at $31,795 for the V8. The solution to that would be to strip a few of the luxury items and the car can fall in line. Then again, it might be worth the extra two grand to be able to get the extra speed and comfort. Or you could get a used car loan and opt for a slightly pre-owned version, as new cars lose 20% of their value right away – putting Camaro below the $30K mark.
