Drivers who feel "the need for speed" don't need a six-figure salary, as a recent basilcars.com blog ranks the top five affordable sports car in the market today. 

According to a recent basilcars.com blog, making the No. 5 cut on their list of affordable sports cars is Nissan's 370Z with an MSRP at $29,990. The 3.7 liter V6 engine generates 332 horsepower, meaning it's built for the racetrack.

The Subaru BRZ and the Toyota 86 both share the No. 4 spot, with the BRZ coming in at $25,595 and the 86 at $26,255. 

"The reason for these two being a tie is that both of these cars were a joint effort to create," the blog said. "Subaru and Toyota/Scion joined forces to create a new sports car using the new 4-cylinder Boxer engine that Subaru created."

Coming in at No. 3 is Mazda's MX-5 at $24,915 with its lightweight size, strong engine size and power. At No. 2 is Fiat's 124 Spider at $24,995. 

Honda's Civic Si surprisingly makes the No. 1 spot due to its 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces about the same horsepower as the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86, but comes in at over $1,000 cheaper. With a sporty look, its inline four engine, according to the blog, is "nearly indestructible."
