Best 4-Seat Sports Cars
It’s fair to say that sports cars are quite obviously the sleekest, most fun-to-drive sort of vehicle you can get your hands on these days. It’s just a shame that most of them have only two seats, right? Fortunately, there are lots of speedy cars out there with two extra seats, keeping the same sporty howl of your favourite rally-bred racing machine, and here are 6 of them we think you’d love!
1) Audi TTS
We all know the original TT was and remains amongst the most beautiful of Audi‘s fleet, but since it features two seats inside the cabin, some of us just aren’t impressed with it anymore. After many critics picked up on the lack of passenger space, Audi saw the dire need to put the TT through a little renovation to enhance its interior layout – ‘the more, the merrier’, they usually say. And indeed, it is merrier than the TT itself. Rather than having only two passengers enjoy the ride, its third and fourth seat enables two extras to experience the thrill of the racing machine at speed.
2) BMW M2
It’s easier to differentiate BMW‘s M2 from all the other ordinary sports cars on the market and since it has four seats, sporty motorists have the dire urge to invest in one themselves. Although the cabin features a lack of style and authenticity – unlike Audi’s TTS – the M2 makes up for it with an engaging driving experience. This version is offered with only rear-wheel drive, using an incredible 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine with 370hp for an exhilarating performance – and as a plus, it makes a sporty howl at speed to kick-start your journey. If we’re being completely honest, though, the cabin doesn’t speak volume in terms of style but it’s still well-built and offers a reasonable amount of space, too.
3) Porsche 911
The good ol’ 911 has been the dream Porsche coupe for a huge segment of motorists and since it’s more than 50 years old, with more than one million models produced worldwide, it’s about time we all got to know the real reason people love Porsche! If you’re one of those who took one look at the 911 and assumed that there’s not a chance in the world you could cram four people inside the cabin, then perhaps you should reconsider your opinion on that one. Admittedly, nobody expected the car maker to add an additional two seats to the cabin space of its 911 coupe, but we’re not complaining! It just means that, if you decide to take a ride in Porsche’s 911, you’d have to be very tolerant of the limited amount of head and legroom. We’re certain the driver won’t care much for its limited space – appealing handling and a variety of blubbering flat-six engines make it fantastically fun and incredibly fast at speed. Its impeccable build quality and cosy cabin materials complete this tempting package, just beware the cost of the different options.
4) Toyota GT86
If Porsche’s 911 is a little too expensive for you, then perhaps the Toyota GT86 would be a better option. The GT86 offers a huge handful of the same thrills, just for a third of the price of Porsche’s 911 coupe – it’s always better to put quality before quantity in this situation. Its humble 200hp means that, unfortunately, it won’t exactly come first-place in many drag races, but the basic, lightweight, rear-wheel drive undercarriage is a blast to fly down a B road. Although, the cabin isn’t the most desirable, it’s durable at best – which should always be prioritised with a sports car of any sort.
5) Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe
Here’s yet another coupe sports car – might we add that, even though it wasn’t the first model mentioned, it’s still earned itself a well-deserved mention at least. The AMG C63 has a monstrous 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that makes a habit out of laying large clouds of tyre smoke – we advise you to look in the rear-view mirror after acceleration and you’ll see this first-hand! Albeit, it’s a little bigger than some of the cars above on the list, which allows it more rear passenger space than any of the other choices. Unlike the other four-seat sports cars we’ve mentioned, Merc’s AMG C63 doesn’t over-face you with too much space, so adults and tall passengers should be comfortable cruising in the back for a few hours at least.
6) BMW M4
While Audi has scored the winning title with its TTS coupe, it appears this is the second time BMW has made an appearance on the list – and right we are in mentioning both models! BMW’s M4 is great fun on the road and has proven to be an incredibly fast four-seat coupe. Similar to Merc’s AMG C63 coupe, the M4’s body is larger than the others mentioned above which means that rear-seat passengers aren’t as restricted as they would be in the smaller M2. Its 430hp straight-six engine boasts a massive performance, especially when joined to the optional seven-speed automatic gearbox with launch control – the engine howl just isn’t the same as you’d hear with the M2 model. Nevertheless, you’ll likely always appreciate the tough build quality and fun handling of BMW’s M4.
