In the 1950s the concept of a small light sporty car was pretty foreign to American car buyers. Despite this, US car makers have put out a diverse collection of 2 seaters over the last six decades. Take a trip through time and check out all the dual passenger automobiles from the US of A.
Note: Many of these cars aren’t performance cars, but they are all two seaters. This list starts after 1945, too many pre-war two seaters. This list was many intended to be for street legal production cars, but I’ve made a handful of exceptions for coolness sake. I’m sure I’ve missed some, chime in with what you’ve got.
