Yes, it is possible to drive a supercar with $100K or less now. As I have said before, you do not have to be a millionaire to be able to afford a fast and luxury car. Everyone loves to own a supercar, some for the driving experience and some to feel superior to their neighbours who own a Toyota Camry with an aftermarket exhaust. Even if you do not have $100K or less, it is not a problem now. A lot of financing institutions are ready to make your dream come true. There are two well-known types of car finance: Car Financing and Car Leasing. Last week, I wrote about car finance as well as all the things you need to consider when buying a new supercar. Read about it here.
Let’s take a look at the new supercars available on the market for less than $100K:
1.Porsche 718 Cayman
The Porsche 718 Cayman is a mid-engined two-passengers sports car. The rear-wheel-drive hatchback or convertible is powered by a turbocharged flat-4 engine with direct fuel injection. The lightweight supercar makes 295 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
The car will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1s if you go with the six-speed manual transmission and it will do so in 4.7s if you choose seven-speed dual-clutch automatic PDK with manual shifting mode. The Porsche 718 Cayman will reach a top speed of 275 km/h which is very impressive for its price range.
The fuel consumption of the Porsche 718 Cayman is as impressive as its price. The car has a combined fuel consumption of about 7.4L per 100 km for the manual and around 6.9L per 100 km for the PDK.
The Porsche 718 Cayman, being a lightweight supercar, is very nimble on the track and its steering wheel is precise. You can easily have fun with this one as it is packed with performance without going broke. Enjoy 2 years without mileage limit warranty on your purchase to give you peace of mind. The price of this little beauty starts at only $55,300.
2. Porsche 718 Boxster
The Porsche 718 Boxster is another mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive and two-passengers supercar from Porsche. Under the hood lies 2.0L turbocharged flat-4 with direct fuel injection engine, making 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
The Porsche 718 Boxster will reach 60 mph in 4.4s. It will do a quarter mile in 13.0s at 109 mph. The car will reach up to a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h). You can get it either with a manual transmission or a PDK. In fact, it has a lot of similarity with the Porsche 718 Cayman. Maybe, the most obvious difference between these two is the fact that the 718 Boxster is only available as a convertible.
Porsche said that this car has a fuel consumption of 24-28 mpg but around 19 mpg was recorded during testing. Enjoy the same warranty also as the Porsche 718 Cayman. However, the Porsche 718 Boxster has a starting price of $57,400.
