Chevrolet Corvette

Base price range: $47,000 to $50,000
Typical five-year ownership cost: $50,000

Sports-car snobs used to look down on the Corvette, but that makes no sense anymore. Best-in-class resale value? Check. Best-in-class insurance rates? Check again. Above-average fuel economy? You bet: 26 mpg on the highway. Then there's the performance and comfort of a Porsche 911 for less than two-thirds the overall cost. Who's looking smart now?
