When you think of sportscars, you often think of Porsche 911 GT4s, or Audi R8s. Unfortunately for common folk like you and me, we can’t afford the shell out $150 000 to buy those cars. But what if you could find a sporty car for about 1% of that? Well, today I am finding these cars on Craigslist. (This totally isn’t an excuse for me to browse cars! I promise!) Here are 3 examples of this rare breed!


1987 Nissan Pulsar EXA


2001 Toyota Aristo/Lexus GS


At first glance, this might seem like a leisurely, boring Lexus. However, look closer and you’ll find a lot more. It’s rear-wheel drive. It was crowned Motor Trend’s “Import of The Year”, and held a place in Car and Driver’s 10best from 1998 to 2000. It also could come with the legendary 2JZ-GTE. Yes, the 2JZ-GTE that was found in the Supra. So, for $1 500, you’re getting a lot of car, and a lot of potential.

1986 Toyota MR2


Yes. You are looking at a midengined, rear-wheel drive sportscar for $600. Just one drawback: it doesn’t have an engine. So, I found you a 4AGZE!¬†http://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-1989-Toyota-MR2-Supercharged-Engine-Long-Block-Assembly-4AGZE-88-000mi-/122188111037?fits=Model%3AMR2

Once you do swap it in, this will cost around $1500, and it is well worth it. Happy swapping!
