Nothing turns heads or powers dreams quite like the roar of the engine on a beautiful sports car. From Eleanor in 'Gone in Sixty Seconds' to the parade of iconic vehicles in the Bond franchise, we're hard wired to crave the superior handling and classic styling of these high performance cars.

At Cartelligent, we help thousands of people decide which car will work best for them. We've used this data to compile a list of our top-selling sports cars below.

 

10. Porsche Boxster

Why we love it: Porsche's entry-level roadster, the Boxster, has a starting MSRP of $51,400. The base model is equipped with a 2.7-liter flat-six engine that generates 265-hp at 6700 rpm and goes from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Upgrade to the Boxster S or GTS for additional performance.

 

9. Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class

Why we love it: The stylish SLK features a panoramic hardtop roof that retracts fully in less than 20 seconds. A 201-hp, 1.8-liter turbo-4 comes standard in the SLK250 while the SLK350 features a 302-hp V6 and the SLK55 AMG is powered by a 415-hp V8.

 

8. Chevrolet Camaro

Why we love it: With a starting MSRP of $23,705, the Camaro is the lowest priced vehicle on our list. It has the look and feel of a classic muscle car with the sound to match. The base model comes with a 323-hp 3.6-liter V6. The race-inspired Z/28 is styled after the 1967 original and comes with a 505-hp, 7.0-liter LS7 engine.

 

7. Audi R8

Why we love it: Audi's impeccably styled supercar is available as a two-seater hardtop or a spyder convertible. A 430-hp, 4.2-liter V8 comes standard and upgrades include the 525-hp, 5.2-liter V10 or the 550-hp, 5.2-liter V10 plus. 

 

6. Ford Mustang

Why we love it: Ford is celebrating the Mustang's 50th anniversary with a complete redesign for 2015 that includes more refined styling and a smoother ride than recent models. A 300-hp, 3.7-liter V6 is standard and a 310-hp, 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder EcoBoost is also available. A Shelby GT350 with a 500-hp, 5.2-liter V8 will be available in late 2015.

 

5. BMW M4

Why we love it: BMW supplements its stable of vehicles with a line of race-inspired trims which are known collectively as the M (for motorsports) models. The M4 coupe is equipped with a 425-hp, 3.0-liter inline-six with M TwinPower Turbo Technology. 

 

4. Subaru BRZ

Why we love it: With its responsive handling and agility, the rear wheel drive BRZ belies the stereotypical image of the eco-conscious Subaru owner out at the farmers market. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine powers all versions.

 

3. Porsche Cayman

Why we love it: The hardtop Cayman shares a platform with the Boxster and its base model also comes equipped with a 2.7 liter flat-six engine while the S and GTS come with the more powerful 3.4 liter flat-six. The styling and architecture more closely resemble the iconic 911 resulting in a powerful and exhilarating drive.

 

 

2. Jaguar F-TYPE

Why we love it: Modeled on the classic looks of the 1960's E-TYPE, the F-TYPE is arguably one of the most beautiful vehicles on the road today. Available as both a coupe and a convertible, the F-TYPE comes equipped with a 340-hp, 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Upgrades include a 380-hp supercharged V6 and a 550-hp supercharged V8. A full-width panoramic roof is optional on coupe models.

 

1. Porsche 911

Why we love it: More than fifty years after its inception, the 911 remain the gold standard of sports cars. The base model Carrera comes with a 350-hp, 3.4-liter engine that goes from 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds. Porsche offers the 911 in 20 distinct models including eight convertible Cabriolets, four Turbo models, two Targa tops and the ultra-performance GT3.
