7 sports cars you can drive every day

Subaru BRZ Premium

Price: $27,365

Mileage: 25 mpg city/34 highway/28 combined

We can't get enough of the all new BRZ, which is also sold as the Scion FR-S. Nimble and athletic, it was born and bred for curvy mountain roads. It's much more about handling than straight-line acceleration. The only Subaru without all-wheel drive, its 200-horsepower 2-liter flat-four engine turns the rear wheels via a driver-shiftable, six-speed automatic transmission. The automatic scrubs a bit from the acceleration, but you won't care as you power through the turns. The flat engine helps keep the center of gravity low for better stability when attacking the curves. Its light weight and spot-on steering conspire to make it remarkably responsive. Despite its slick exterior lines, the front-seat area is remarkably roomy and the seats quite comfortable. There's a small back seat that works better for groceries than friends.
