7 sports cars you can drive every day

Nissan 370Z

Price: $32,100
Mileage: 19 mpg city/26 highway/22 combined

Sharing lots of bits and pieces with the Infiniti G37, the 370Z has a decidedly upscale feel. Although it gives up nothing in the way of performance and handling, it has a sophisticated ride, getting high marks from us for its road manners. We think the styling makes it look as though it's covered with a liquid sheet of molten metal. The 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 will rocket this two-seater from a standstill to 60 mph in less than six seconds. We've priced it out here with the optional driver-shiftable, seven-speed automatic transmission, hustling engine output to the rear wheels. Ponying up another 12 grand or so gets you the convertible. The boy racer in us likes the idea that Nissan also offers a Nismo version that's been tweaked and outfitted by its motor sports division.
