12: Chevrolet Corvette C4
Perhaps one of the most iconic sports cars to grace the world, the C4 Corvette is vastly underrated. The design of the C4 influenced the Corvette for many generations after. The LT1 V8 engine performs exceptionally to this day. The classic design of the C4 is attractive and the car is lightweight. There are many resources available for the LT1 V8 engine. Many replacement parts are compatible with other Chevy’s (via Auto List).
A Corvette C4 with low mileage won’t set you back more than $10,000, a stellar deal when you consider the C4 a supercar. The interior is nothing striking, but the rest of the car more than makes up for the shortcoming. There are a few cars that perform like a C4 Corvette in this price range.
