Two-seater sports cars FAQs
Given the fact that two-seater sports cars are a bit more of a niche proposition than your average family SUV, the options that you have at the more affordable end of the scale are relatively few and far between. The cars you see on the list above are pretty much the only dedicated two-seater sports cars you can buy without expanding into proper supercar territory.
That said, if you really want to push the boat out and spend a lot of money, then your options aren’t quite as limited. Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maseratis are all two-seaters, but you’d have a hard time classing these full-fat supercars as anything other than supercars.
In terms of outright interior space, the Toyota Supra, BMW Z4 and Jaguar F-Type all fare pretty well, and offer a decent number of onboard storage compartments. While it might be a considerably smaller car, the Porsche 718 Cayman is also surprisingly spacious on the inside too.
That said, if you want a two-seater sports car that also has a large boot (relatively speaking, of course), then you’ll want to go for the Jaguar F-Type. The coupe model has 336 litres of luggage space, outclassing the Toyota Supra (290 litres) and the BMW Z4 (281 litres) by a decent margin.
Again, however, the Porsche 718 Cayman is still worth a look in. Instead of having one traditional boot at the back, it has two separate storage compartments front and rear, with a combined 405 litres of storage space between them. You’ll have to play a bit of packing Tetris if you’ve got a load of bulky items to get in, though. The rear compartment is fairly long but also quite shallow, while the front compartment is deep but narrow.
Of all the two-seater sports cars included on this list, the Audi R8 is the fastest by a long-shot. The rear-wheel drive model can hit an astounding 204mph flat out, while the pricier four-wheel drive variant can run all the way up to 206mph. As far as acceleration is concerned, the rear-wheel drive R8 will sprint from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds, while the four-wheel-drive version takes just 3.1 seconds.
The range-topping Jaguar F-Type R with its 575hp supercharged V8 also packs a pretty incredible amount of punch. While it’s not quite as quick as the Audi, 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 186mph is still extremely impressive. An honourable mention goes to the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS too: this six-cylinder sports car takes 4.5 seconds to accelerate to 60mph, and will top out at 182mph.
If outright speed and acceleration isn’t really a top priority for you when it comes to buying a sports car, then the Mazda MX-5 represents the best value for money. Not only is it one of the more affordable cars on this list anyway, it’s got the whole convertible thing going for it, and it looks fantastic too.
Still, what makes the MX-5 such a hoot to drive on any road is the fact that you feel like you can safely access all of its performance on the road without breaking the speed limit. After all, what good is a hugely powerful sports car if you run the risk of being handed a speeding ticket every time you go near the throttle? Being a relatively dinky, lightweight little car, the MX-5 feels super zippy and exciting through the corners too, which is arguably where you have the most fun in a sports car anyway.
