These Are the Best American Sports Car Bargains for Sale on Autotrader

If you’re interested in an American sports car without paying a fortune for a new one, you have some great options. That’s because there are many great American sports car bargains on the market today — and I’ve rounded up five of the best, all of which offer big performance, lots of power and amazing thrills for not too much money.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS – $14,990

The Chevrolet Camaro has been an exciting, desirable car ever since it was revived about a decade ago — and even 10-year-old examples still look great, and cool, and pretty new. This particular example is a 2010 Camaro SS with the optional 6.2-liter V8 and a 6-speed manual transmission — and although it’s traveled 110,000 miles it still looks pretty good. That’s especially true considering it’s offered by Exclusive Motors in Virginia Beach, Virginia, for just $14,990. Find a Chevrolet Camaro for sale

2001 Chevy Corvette Z06

2001 Chevy Corvette Z06 – $20,991

The C5 Chevy Corvette Z06 is one of the greatest bargains in the car business — and this particular example is great proof of that. This C5 Z06 has traveled less than 49,000 miles from new, and it still looks great — and it’s offered for just $20,991. That’s an amazing price considering how sporty and exciting these cars are to drive, and how reliable they are to own — and while this C5 Z06 is offered by Houston Direct Auto in Houston, the price is in line with what these sell for around the country. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale

2004 Dodge Viper SRT-10

2004 Dodge Viper SRT-10 – $29,995

Although this Viper is the most expensive car on this list, it’s also the most powerful — and the rarest and most special, as Vipers are quite exotic compared to Camaros and Mustangs. This particular Viper is offered by a private seller in Utah for just $29,995, which is a truly amazing number considering how much enjoyment these bring — and how much performance. The reason for the low price is the high miles — 65,000 miles is considered very high for one of these — but it’s a desirable car nonetheless. Find a Dodge Viper for sale

2012 Ford Mustang GT

2012 Ford Mustang GT – $16,991

The Ford Mustang GT has always been a desirable performance car, but the Mustang got especially desirable following the 2011 model year, as more power and more modern styling was added. This Mustang GT uses the desirable V8, and it also touts a manual transmission — and it’s driven just 63,000 miles from new. It’s offered by Windham Select in Charleston, South Carolina, for $16,991, which really proves just how much of a performance bargain this car really is. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

2004 Pontiac GTO

2004 Pontiac GTO – $15,000

The Pontiac GTO is a desirable car, as it was among the last gasps of Pontiac performance before the brand folded up shop. Although these sell for more money than similar Mustang or Camaro models from this era, they’re also a bit more advanced than those cars — and quite a bit rarer. This particular GTO is offered by a private seller in Brunswick, Ohio, with 49,000 miles for $15,000 — and it looks to be in nice, attractive, unmodified condition. Find a Pontiac GTO for sale
