12 Best Sports Car Deals in September 2023

Simplifying the Shopping

As adults we often have to make the practical choice. An SUV that seats five or a minivan that can haul all that sporting equipment. A fun and flashy sports car may seem illogical, but who says we have to be all work and no play all the time? While some sports cars may be out of reach, many models cost less than you think.

This month, check out deals that include more affordable options such as the Mazda MX-5 Miata and luxury vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan.

High interest rates may make financing deals less compelling but this list also includes lease deals. Both leasing and financing deals vary due to location, so contact your local dealer to learn about what incentives are available to you. An excellent credit score is typically required to qualify for the best deals.

Check out the following pages to learn all about the best sports car deals available between now and the end of September.

2023 Chevrolet camaro

2023 Chevrolet Camaro

Lease Deal: $279 per month for two years with $6,689 due at signing

The Chevy Camaro offers one of the lowest base prices among sports cars, along with deft handling and an impressive lineup of powerful engines. We did find, however, that the packaging sacrifices some everyday comfort and livability for the price.

This deal is for the Camaro LT1 coupe, which has a 6.2-liter V8 engine. Drivers will appreciate the responsive steering and adept road grip. While the interior has a modern feel and is sturdy, it does have a lot of hard plastics and lower-quality surfaces. If you need cargo space, look elsewhere, as the trunk is very small, and the rear seats are almost unusable. The infotainment system is easy to master and responds quickly to inputs.

Take advantage of this deal through October 2.

2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda North American Operations

2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Purchase Deal: 0.9% financing for up to three years

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a great option if you want a fun-to-drive and relatively affordable sports car. Drivers will enjoy the solid handling and fast acceleration.

The Miata’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine offers 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. It will take you from zero to 60 mph in less than six seconds. The engine comes with a six-speed manual transmission, but you can opt for a six-speed automatic.

The interior is well-built but does feel a bit cramped, and there’s not a lot of room for cargo. The infotainment system is not the most user-friendly, but it boasts Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The vehicle comes with either a soft or a hard top and additional driver-assistance systems.

This deal runs through October 2.

Next:2023 BMW Z4


BMW of North America, LLC

2023 BMW Z4

Lease Deal: $699 per month for three years with $6,349 due at signing

While the BMW Z4 doesn’t offer the deft handling that some others on this list have, but it makes up for that with energetic acceleration, a plush interior and a surprising amount of cargo space for its class. It also has a comfortable ride and good fuel economy.

The cabin is quiet, with high-quality materials, comfortable seats for two and 9.9 cubic feet of trunk space. We found the infotainment system easy to use, and it has a 10.25-inch touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto.

The list of standard safety features is a bit short but includes a rearview camera, driver-attention monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and automatic high-beam headlights.

This deal, valid through October 2, is for to the base 2023 BMW Z4 sDrive30i with a 255-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Next:2023 Genesis G70

2023 Genesis G70

Genesis Motor America

2023 Genesis G70

Purchase Deal: 3.49% financing for up to five years

The Genesis G70 boasts a competitive price, a cushioned ride and a luxurious interior. Its greatest asset is the way it drives, with a lithe and surefooted feel that settles for relaxed around-town cruising, and turbocharged engine options that provide plenty of power.

The base trim has a turbo-four engine, synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, Apple CarPlay, adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring. The cabin boasts comfortable seats and nice touches. The infotainment system is intuitive to use, with 10.25-inch touch screen that is user-friendly. The G70 earns praise for both its safety ratings and predicted reliability.

Genesis is offering this purchase deal in most areas, and it runs until October 2. Visit your local Genesis dealer to learn more.

Next:2023 Dodge Challenger

2023 Dodge Challenger Exterior

2023 Dodge Challenger

Finance Deal: 6.9% financing for six years

If you’re looking for a traditional muscle car with ludicrously powerful engines, look no further. It’s not a well-rounded vehicle, lacking refinement and agility, but it’s fast.

The Dodge Challenger seats five, and it’s one of the best in the class for passenger accommodations, with wide and comfortable front seats. The trunk measures 16.2 cubic feet, which is a lot of space for a sports car, though you do have to deal with the high bumper.

This offer is for the Challenger SXT, which has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 303 horsepower. The cabin is a bit plain, and the standard touch-screen infotainment system only has a 7-inch display. Standard driver-assistance features are also in short supply.

Dodge’s deals vary by region. This deal is valid through October 2 but visit your local dealer to learn more.

Next:2023 Subaru BRZ

2023 Subaru BRZ

Subaru of America, Inc.

2023 Subaru BRZ

Lease Deal: $419 per month for three years with $1,469 due at signing

The Subaru BRZ is one of the most well-rounded modern sports cars. It’s both practical and fun to drive, with a 2.4-liter flat four-cylinder engine that puts out 228 horsepower and a sleek interior that seats four. A six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive come standard. Buyers can also opt for a six-speed automatic transmission.

The BRZ is agile on winding roads, with a stiff suspension that doesn’t compromise ride comfort. The interior feels a bit cramped, especially in the back, and cargo space is limited. The easy-to-use infotainment system has an 8-inch touch screen with well-placed buttons and knobs. The only standard driver-assistance feature is a rearview camera.

Visit your local dealer by October 2 to take advantage of this deal.

Next:2023 Porsche Taycan


Porsche Cars North America, Inc.

2023 Porsche Taycan

Lease Deal: $1,299 for 39 months with $9,999 due at signing

The Porsche Taycan should definitely be on your radar if you’re looking for an all-electric, performance-focused sports car. While it delivers a thrilling drive, with 321 horsepower and up to 254 pound-feet of torque, it does disappoint a bit in drive range and practicality.

Inside the luxurious cabin there is seating for four. The infotainment system includes a 10.9-inch touch screen, Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless device charging.

The Taycan’s driving range isn’t as impressive, with a maximum all-electric range of 246 miles on the GTS trim. The base model with the upgraded battery offers 242 miles, and other Taycan models have driving ranges between 208 and 238 miles.

Visit your local Porsche dealer to learn more about this deal, which ends October 2.

Next:2023 Kia Stinger

2023 Kia Stinger Exterior

2023 Kia Stinger

Purchase Deal: 2.9% financing for five years

The Kia Stinger offers a relaxed but engaging ride along with a lively engine performance and poised handling. It also boasts a host of standard features at a lower price than the top European luxury small cars. Some trade-offs, however, include fuel economy and cabin materials that don’t quite match rival offerings.

This hatchback offers more cargo space than your typical sports car, with 23.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and roughly double that amount with the seats folded.

The standard turbo-four engine has plenty of power for your daily commute, though it’s not as sporty as some rivals. The cabin feels luxurious and has an easy-to-use infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touch screen. There’s a long list of standard driver-assistance features as well.

This deal is available through October 31.

Next:2024 Ford Mustang

2024 Ford Mustang

2024 Ford Mustang

Lease Deal: $426 per month for four years with $3,678 down

The Ford Mustang was redesigned for 2024 and offers a potent turbo-four in its base model, confident handling and a suave and high-tech interior. We found that it is a joy to drive both around town and on the highway, and the only drawback we noted is its cramped back seats.

Ford offers several engine options. The base turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder has 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Inside the cabin, buyers will find an updated interior that shed the retro dashboard and offers a more modern aesthetic. The new infotainment system is user-friendly and there is a wealth of standard tech, safety and convenience features.

This offer is for the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback model and expires on October 2.

Next:2023 Audi TT

2023 Audi TT Coupé

Audi of America, Inc.

2023 Audi TT

Finance Deal: 6.49% financing for five years

The Audi TT serves well as a daily sports car rather than all-out performance machine, but it’s priced well compared to costlier rivals. This modern and upscale vehicle offers responsive handling, good fuel economy and a quality interior.

Buyers can select from either a coupe or convertible body style. The base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines has 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. While this horsepower rating pales in comparison to what you’ll find among other luxury sports cars, there is plenty of muscle to get this Audi moving.

The cabin offers upscale materials. There is no dedicated central infotainment touch screen. The fully digital instrument cluster that Audi calls the Virtual Cockpit also displays media, navigation and smartphone integration.

This deal is valid through October 2, so visit your Audi dealer to learn more.

Next:2023 Jaguar F-Type

2023 Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC

2023 Jaguar F-Type

Finance Deal: 4.9% for up to six years

Less athletic than some rivals, the Jaguar F-Type is still a joy to drive, with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes 444 horsepower and takes this sports car from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

The two-seat cabin can feel a bit cramped, but the materials are nice and there’s a long list of standard features. The coupe version offers a large trunk, while the convertible offers very little cargo space. We found the infotainment system to be subpar and in need of a redesign. Buyers will appreciate decent gas mileage for its class.

We advise buyers to consider the F-Type if you like the idea of a supercharged V8-powered sports car, especially considering this Jag will soon go out of production

This deal ends on October 2. See your participating Jaguar retailer to learn more.

Lease Deal: $1,649 per month for three years with $12,263 due at signing

The small but mighty AMG SL 55 is a luxury sports car that boasts a monstrous twin-turbo V8 engine with up to 577 horsepower. Speed isn’t the only name of the game, however, and drivers will also enjoy sharp handling and the cushioned ride. The AMG Performance all-wheel-drive system provides excellent grip and inspires confidence through turns. An adaptive air suspension ensures the SL also cruises over rough pavement easily.

The interior is full of opulent materials and high-tech features. The front seats are comfortable and the rear seats are small but usable. The infotainment system is a bit distracting to operate. There’s a nice list of standard driver-assistance features.

This deal runs through October 2.
