Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The classic American sports car got a major update last year, making it better in every way. Dad's going to love feeling the rumble of the 460 horsepower 6.2-liter V-8. In fact, if he take off in this beast, you may never see him again.

Audi RS 7 Quattro

The RS 7 is one of those that performs like a supercar without sacrificing a spacious backseat and room in the boot for groceries, things that dads should be able to appreciate. It's also not just a powerful, dumb brute. Dad can meticulously adjust the performance from comfort to dynamic and access a wealth of bells and whistles via the high-tech dashboard interface.

Check out the Audi RS 7, our Editors' Choice.

Toyota Avalon

A car doesn't have to be outlandish to be lustworthy. Dads who appreciate a good deal and more modest, reliable rides will see value in the Avalon's good looks, luxury features, and reasonable price. Opt for the Hybrid model to save bucks at the pump.

Check out the Toyota Avalon.

Mazda Miata

A good dad is an expert in coaxing out grins and giggles, just like the Mazda Miata. This simple roadster isn't expensive, powerful, or a status symbol, but it is pure driving enjoyment in a classic package. The slightly embarrassing dad who values a good laugh will find the Mazda to be a kindred spirit.

Check out the Mazda Miata.
