5. Volkswagen Golf R
The Volkswagen Golf R is a complete blast to drive and with an MSRP of $36,000 is as affordable as a formidable sports car can be. It comes from a rich pedigree of legitimate collectibles, including its MK I GTI ancestor from the late 80s. If you don’t even want to look that far back, turn your attention to the 2004 Golf R32 which is already heading towards that direction. The Golf R looks to keep that tradition alive.
