You don’t have to suffer behind the wheel of a crappy little econo box to keep from spending your entire paycheck at the pump. Our friends over at CARandDRIVER.com have come up with their list of five cars that can satisfy your need for speed and performance, and still get you mileage in the twenties. According to CandD, “Horsepower, just like fuel economy, is a product of efficiency, and these vehicles balance both to their best advantage.”
The biggest surprise on the list? The Chevy Corvette, which gets a remarkable 26 mpg on the highway. With all that fiberglass keeping the body weight down, all those horses can run faster without getting thirsty.
Also on the list is the Porsche Cayman, a balls-out performance ride that comes close to breaking the 30 mpg barrier by coming in at a gas-sipping 29. And that’s not even the best performer. There are two others on the list that’ll satisfy your need for performance, and get you over 30 mpg. To read the rest of the list, and actually get excited to drive again, without worrying about having to give up a night out to do it, click here.
