2018 BMW M2: $55,595

For a BMW sports car that won’t put you close to your limit of $100,000, consider the M2. This model’s turbocharged inline-6 engine puts you in control of 389 pound-feet for torque and 365 horsepower. With that engine, you are able to go from a stop to 60 mph in 4 seconds.

Handling of the BMW M2 matches its performance and appearance. You will definitely want to opt for the optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which gives you one of the top paddle shifts available in speed. Don’t be fooled by the fact that the M2 is less powerful than the M3 or M5; it is still incredibly fun to drive and delivers plenty of car for what you pay. Auto enthusiasts will want to choose the M2 over the M3 or M5, despite the higher engine output on the other models.
