2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Price: $51,995

Availability: September 2013

The outlook: The substantial amount of tech Chevrolet put into the Stingray succeeds in making it a better car, without getting in the way of the driving experience. In fact, the tech, cabin appointments, and body design make it as desirable as models from Ferrari and Lamborghini, at the considerably lower price point of just over 50 grand.
