Nissan’s sporty coupe, the 370Z, has been on the market since 2009. While it’s not exactly at the forefront of the sport car war anymore, it still has one of the best fun/price ratios among its competitors.
For 2016, the 370Z isn’t touting any significant new features or more power; however, it just became significantly more appealing if you are looking for a sports car.

You also get 18-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights, automatic climate control and Bluetooth.

Finally, convertible variants are also back. The Touring model (which is the least expensive 370Z with a soft top) starts at $49,498. One equipped with an automatic gearbox will sell for $5,000 more, because you have to upgrade to the Sport Touring version.
