Sports Cars Getting Greener

Most people choose muscle cars or stylish roadsters for their appearance and performance, not necessarily for their gas mileage. But more sport cars are being redesigned to be more fuel efficient, making them a stylish and more environmentally sound choice.

Sports cars are typically considered gas-guzzlers. Most feature a V8 engine under the hood, which can easily take the vehicle up to the top speeds afficionados desire. The trouble with V8 engines is that they tend to drink up gasoline. However, these models of sports cars can make filling up at the pump less expensive -- which is good for the wallet and the environment.
