Here's something you might be interested in if you're looking for a great deal on a performance car: the Buick Regal GS. No, not the 1990s Buick Regal GS, where they merely added a supercharger and some slightly sporty suspension to an otherwise staid, dull vehicle. I'm referring to the mid-2010s Buick Regal GS, which was a pretty good car -- and which is now an amazing deal.

The newest version of the Buick Regal came out for the 2011 model year, and the high-performance GS version debuted for 2012. The GS was impressive from day one, boasting a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions. It was front-wheel drive, sure, but it was fast -- and now it's a bargain.

Indeed, a search through Autotrader's listings shows that there are currently 30 examples of the 2012 Regal GS listed for sale, all available between $10,000 and $15,000 -- not bad for a modern, sporty sedan offered with a manual. Search for newer model years and you'll discover that prices even for 2015 models traditionally hover in the low-$20,000 range -- and some are offered with Buick's certified pre-owned warranty, which boasts a year of comprehensive coverage and 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date.

To me, these are great deals. I've never driven a modern Regal GS, but on paper they seem to be excellent bargains, with big power (although, it's worth noting, the horsepower figure fell to 259 for the 2014 model year) and cool, thrilling styling. It's worth a look if you're interested in an exciting performance sedan without spending a fortune.
