Nowadays, it might seem every great performance car on the market costs and exuberant amount of money. But there are still a bunch of great new cars out there you can buy for not too much cash. Which is your favorite?
Right now, I think the BRZ tS is the best buy for under $45,000. It's the most capable 86 variant ever offered from the factory, equipped with sticky tires, an upgraded suspension, better brakes, and a massive wing out back. The only real downside is the lack of power (the 205-horsepower engine is carried over from the base car). Still, thanks to those upgrades, it can be just as fast as a car with double the power in the right hands.
Now we'd like to know: Which car do you think is the best buy for under $45,000? It doesn't have to be anything sporty like the BRZ tS, either—it could be anything, as long as it's a new car you can buy today. Let us know in the comments below.
