19. Nissan 350Z/370Z
Available as a coupe or a roadster, the Nissan Z is a sports car legend in an affordable package. The handsome front-engine rear-wheel-drive car has a potent V6 engine and limited-slip differential as standard equipment. This feature makes it safe to drive hard and a favorite drift car. There are plenty of models to choose from with average prices in the $10,000 to $15,000 range.
There is enormous aftermarket support for this model, which means that you can easily tune and customize your 350Z in any way you want. In 2008, Nissan introduced the 370Z, a restyled and slightly more powerful version with updated mechanics and an improved interior. It is still in production and it is more expensive on the used car market.
