Having a dedicated track car is great and all, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have something fun to drive to work and the grocery store. These sports cars make great daily drivers during the week, and even better track cars on the weekend.
Arguably the best M car currently in production, the M2 is the smallest and therefore the lightest of the lineup. It can also be had in a manual, which is a must for many of us enthusiasts and driving purists. Additionally, the M2 can be had in standard or Competition trim, both of which are equally luxurious, with the latter being powered by the same engine from the M3 and M4. It’s a win-win.
Perhaps most well-known for its crackle-filled soundtrack on deceleration, the F-Type is stunning to look at, fantastic to drive, and incredibly luxurious inside – a recipe for a top-tier daily driver.
If you don’t want to pony up the cash for a 911, the Cayman offers the perfect mix of affordability and performance. It is just as luxurious and comfortable inside as its big brother, and whether you opt for the newer turbocharged 718 model or an older flat-six car, you’re going to have a good time.
Ford Mustang GT
The newest Mustang is a fantastic all-around sports car. It is packed with modern technologies and comfort features to make the commute enjoyable, and when optioned out with Performance Pack 1, has good potential on the track without being as hardcore as a Performance Pack 2 car.
A roadster might not be everybody’s first idea of a great daily driver, but Honda’s S2000 is an exception. Legendary reliability, great visibility, and great driving characteristics make for a care-free yet fun drive to the office, and the satisfaction of driving one of the greatest Hondas ever made.
Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S
A popular choice for the enthusiast looking for a fun car that can be used every day, the Toyota/Subaru joint venture is an all-around winner. Four seats, a usable trunk, and great fuel economy combined with fun driving dynamics make this a great option for an affordable daily car.
No longer do you have to choose between having a car you can drive every day and having a performance-oriented sports car. These are just a few of the options out there in 2018, but you truly can have it all in one car these days.
