    Porsche 718 Cayman
    The Porsche 718 Cayman is certainly not a bargain, in comparison. It starts at over $56,000 and has much less power.

    However, it also has one of the best chassis and gearbox options currently on sale. It's also a mid-engine Porsche.

    Toyota GR Supra
    German underpinnings with Japanese improvements sound like a strong argument, but for over $43,000, you only get four cylinders in the Supra.

    The 3.0-liter variant ofers 382 hp and more torque than the Z, but at a steep cost of over $50,000.
