2. 1992-2002 Dodge Viper RT/10
If you came of age in the ’90s, there’s a good chance you had a Viper poster on your bedroom wall. Dodge’s hand-built exotic was powered by an 8.0 liter V10 that cranked out 400 horsepower and drew comparisons with the iconic Shelby Cobra of the ’60s. Today, the Viper has survived the bottom of the depreciation curve and is starting to gain status as a collectible. Still, you can buy a decent example for under $30,000 – or about as much as a mid-level 2017 Dodge Journey.
