Our Top Picks of Rear Wheel Drive Cars on a Budget


Who ever said rear wheel drive vehicles are a thing of the past?  There’s several car companies that still believe smoke blazing from rear tires is the best way to have fun. Even when on a budget. Besides, whens the last time you watched a front wheel drive vehicle in a drift competition?  So here’s our list of the top rear wheel drive cars you can purchase for under 28k.


4. Mazda Miata MX-5

Even though it’s a bit underpowered with only 155 horses from a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder, the MX-5 is very lean only weighing at 2,300 pounds.  Backed by 6-speed paddle shift transmission, there’s no excuse for granny footing the gas pedal. With aggressive new styling and historic performance, Sunday drives will mostly include "sticking it down and whipping it around."




3. Toyota 86 “860” Special

At the heart of the "86" is a potent 2.0, Boxer "flat-four” that pumps out 200 horsepower and 156 foot pounds of torque.  Throw the stick through the gears of its six-speed manual transmission and you’ll find your self avidly down-shifting to put the rear rubbers to work.  Plus, the “860” Special includes performance features such as sport tuned suspension, 4.36 rear axle gears, custom intake manifold, bucket racing inspired seats and fold down rear seats with enough room throw in a spare set of track day tires.  The best part is that you can get all of this for under 28k.




2.  Hyundai Genesis

With a 340 horsepower, the 3.4 cylinder V-6 is backed by an 8-speed paddle shift transmission. With sport styling and Brembo braking system features like these make the Genesis a substantial player in the rear wheel drive marketplace.  From track days or a daily commute to work, every turn becomes an apex of imaginative possibilities.





1. Ford Mustang Ecoboost

Powered by a 355 horsepower, twin-turbo 2.3-liter inline 4-cylinder and available with a 6-speed manual transmission, the Mustang Ecoboost is a new level of level of tire spinning action. Plus, with a circus show of after market companies such as American Muscle and CJ Pony Parts providing go-fast accessories, 400 horsepower is achievable at the click of the Internet. Which is why the Mustang Ecoboost is our top pick for economical fun. Besides, stating that your car comes stock with twin turbo’s is worth 26k.
