9.) Cadillac ELR
Everyone cried fowl when Cadillac announced the ELR would cost $75k, but we soon learned that it wasn't quite so much. The World Of Vee over in Oppositelock picked one up for just $47,500. Now that's more like it.
8.) Ford Focus ST
A stripped out Focus ST can be had for under $2ok which is a downright bargain for one of the best hot hatchbacks on the market right now.

6.) Smart Electric Drive
Say what you will about the Smart car, but the Electric Drive with a $139/month lease plus whatever State/Federal EV incentives you might get is a great deal. It might be a perfect, cheap urban runabout. Some have seen lease offers for as low as $99/month.
5.) 2013 SRT Viper GTS
Yes, you can buy a new 2013 Viper GTS for $89,990. That's down from $134,990, and there are plenty of GTSs that sell for under $100k.
4.) 2014 Nissan GT-R
Nissan is currently offering $10k off list for 2014 GT-Rs which is very cheap for a car that can do 0-60 in a mind bending 2.7 seconds. That's nearly 918 territory for under $90k.
3.) Nissan Leaf
The GT-R is great, but it's not the best deal in the Nissan lineup. That would have to go to the Leaf, especially if you live in a state with good EV incentives. Reader nogirlsatgt broke down the monthly lease costs for his own Leaf in Georgia.
"$220-ish seems to be about the lowest you can get an S model without the quick charge package, if you have access to Nissan's VPP program.
Our numbers work out like this:
Total of lease payments: ($249x24; plus $349 disposition fee) $6325
Incremental Insurance increase: ($15x24) $360
Incremental Electric Bill Increase: ($15x24) $360
$7045 total costs over two years
- $5k state refund
+ $1250 federal tax liability on state refund
- $3600 in gas savings ($150x24)
-$305 total cost of ownership over two years
We don't really drive enough miles to drive that number farther negative (only 6,ooo miles per year). I also have not factored in the maintenance that replacing a 10 year old car with the Leaf allowed us. I figured my car was going to need $1000+ over two years to stay on the road. That's no longer an issue."
Does anyone want a free car?
2.) Dodge Charger/Challenger Hellcat
Ok, so Dodge hasn't released the pricing on the Charger Hellcat yet but expect it to be around the $60k the Chally Hellcat will sell for. That's supercar numbers for BMW 5-Series money.
They're the American version of the Lotus Carlton.

1.) Corvette Z06
If I hadn't read it on GM's press release there's no way in hell I'd believe that the new Z06 would cost under $80k. That's less than a base 911 Carrera, for something that will run with a Turbo S.
