What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi TT sports?
If what you really want is an out-and-out sports car, then you’d have to go for the Porsche Boxster. Trouble is, it’s a heck of a lot more expensive to buy, meaning you’ll have to settle for an older, higher-mileage example for a similar budget.
The BMW Z4 is a little more sedate, meanwhile, and not quite as crisp or taut as the TT to drive. Nevertheless, it’s priced quite low, so it's worth a look as a value option.
Also worth a look is the Abarth 124 Spider. It's smaller and a little more hardcore than the TT, but the interior's almost as smart, so if you want a sportier option on a budget, it could be the one for you.
