The 350Z/370Z is a two-seater powered rear-wheel drive V6 which is available as a hatchback-coupe or convertible. The Z is the second most popular sports car following the Mustang.

The good news is that about all of those we find for sale have manual transmission. The 350Z is powerful and enjoyable to throw around the corners but the ride is firm and noisy and the cabin is cramped.

The Nissan GT-R’s V6 is loosely based on the VQ motor and even looks similar. The 370Z has replaced the 350Z since 2009. The Z is reliable, but there were a few issues with tires wearing fast, engine oil consumption and some transmission glitches that you probably want to research first. The 350Z reaches 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. The 370Z Nismo with the 3.7-liter V6 sprints 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds.

9.   2017-18 Mazda MX-5

Best Sports Cars Under 20k

The 1.5-litre engine might only have 129bhp but that’s more than enough in such a light car.

Yes, a more powerful version is available but you don’t need it because the base model handles better and is more fun than it’s fierier sibling, even if it does deny you bragging rights in the pub.

The MX-5 range starts at £18,495 and it is in such high demand that you are unlikely to get a discount. It’s a new model too, so there aren’t many available on the secondhand market either but neither of these things matter because if you need a super-civilized, two-seater sports car for under twenty grand then the MX-5 is on a shortlist of one.

10.   2013-15 Subaru WRX STI

2013-15 Subaru WRX STI

Unchanged for many years is the formidable 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four, which boasts a wonderfully tuned 304 horses and 317 lb-ft of torque at a mere 3,200 rpm. That means the WRX STI is loud and brash. In short, it’s exhilarating. It’ll do 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, making it just about the quickest in the segment. Best of all, you can get your hands on one for under $20,000. Make sure you negotiate hard, though, because you’ll need some pocket change to pay for this gas-thirsty sports car.
