If you're interested in buying a sporty new car on a budget, our latest list is for you. That's because we've rounded up seven sporty coupes for under $30,000 -- all of which include a certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty, which means that every model on our list includes the peace of mind you'll get from manufacturer-backed warranty coverage.

2010-2013 Audi A5

The Audi A5 is a beautiful coupe with timeless styling that still looks new and modern, despite originally making its debut almost ten years ago. Of course, a new Audi A5 is also a highly expensive luxury car, with prices starting around $41,500 with shipping -- and that's before options and extras. Fortunately, you don't have to pay anywhere near that much if you get a certified pre-owned 2010-2013 A5 Coupe, as there are currently more than 50 different examples listed on Autotrader for around $30,000 or less. Best of all, each one comes with Audi's certified pre-owned warranty, which offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

2011-2013 BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series is a small luxury coupe that offers razor-sharp handling and sporty powertrains. Get a certified pre-owned 2011-2013 model and it also touts BMW's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which lasts for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. And while the 1 Series may not offer the practicality of a sedan or even a large coupe, it's more fun in the corners than most other cars -- including any other model on this list. The best part? There are currently more than 100 different certified pre-owned 1 Series models listed on Autotrader for a budget-friendly $30,000 or less.

2011-2014 Cadillac CTS Coupe

The Cadillac CTS Coupe offers bold, head-turning styling thanks to sharp creases, a wedge shape and handsome proportions. Unfortunately, drivers who like the CTS's unique look can no longer buy a new one, as the latest CTS is now only offered as a sedan. The solution? Pick up a certified pre-owned model, which includes 6 years or 70,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date. You should have no trouble finding one within our budget, as there are currently more than 120 different certified pre-owned 2011-2014 CTS Coupe models listed on Autotrader for around $30,000 or less.

2010-2015 Chevrolet Camaro

It won't surprise you to learn that it's easy to find a certified pre-owned Chevrolet Camaro for under $30,000, considering that new models start around $26,700 with shipping. But you might be surprised to learn that you can have just about any certified pre-owned Camaro version you want for around $30,000 or less, considering there are 1,300 coupes on Autotrader that feature Chevy's CPO warranty -- an excellent program that offers 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 5 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection from the original sale date. No, you won't get a high-performance Z/28 or ZL1 -- but you should have no trouble finding a V8-powered Camaro SS with a lot of options without going over our budget.

2011-2015 Ford Mustang

There are more than 700 different 2011-2015 Ford Mustang models currently listed on Autotrader for under $30,000 with Ford's certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection. More importantly, however, more than 200 of those are V8-powered Mustang GT models. Those come with a few comfort features (18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, an iPod/USB interface) and a raucous 435-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine that can propel the popular coupe to 60 mph from a standing stop in 5 seconds or less -- not bad for less than thirty grand with a long, manufacturer-backed warranty.

2012-2013 Infiniti G37 Coupe

The Infiniti G37 Coupe is a powerful, sporty two-door that offers four seats and rear- or all-wheel drive. Later renamed the Q60, the G37 Coupe boasts 330 hp and a long list of luxury features -- especially if you go with the Premium model, which includes leather upholstery with heated front seats, Bluetooth, a power sunroof, an 11-speaker Bose sound system, xenon headlights and keyless access with push-button starting. But the best part about the G37 Coupe is its reasonable pricing: There are currently around 180 different models on Autotrader for $30,000 or less with Infiniti's certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 6 years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date.

2012-2014 Mini Cooper Coupe

The 2-seater Mini Cooper Coupe is on its way out; canceled after lackluster sales. But it wasn't driving enjoyment that killed the Cooper Coupe, as the car offers a more enticing driving experience than any other Mini model. Instead, it was pricing: While the Cooper Coupe started around $23,000, most models were closer to $30,000 -- and even potentially as high as $40,000 -- when you added options. The solution is to go with a certified pre-owned model, which offers 6 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date. If that sounds appealing, you'll have to scout Autotrader for the Cooper Coupe you want: There are currently nearly 40 examples listed on the site within our budget that include Mini certifies pre-owned warranty.
