Ford Taurus SHO -- 0% APR financing for 36 months plus $1,000 cash back, or $2,000 cash back

With its 365-horsepower twin-turbo V-6 and unshakeably stable all-wheel drive, the Ford Taurus SHO sounds almost like an Audi product on paper.  It's not, but for the price, it's close.  The gorgeous two-tone interior, linebacker-in-a-tailored-suit sheetmetal and surprisingly agile handling for its huge size make the hotted-up Taurus a lot of car for under $38,000.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 -- 0% APR financing for up to 72 months, or $3,000 cash back

The Corvette ZR1 is the first American car in many years that can hold its own against European supercars -- for a quarter of their price.  Its 638-horsepower supercharged V-8 and intricately engineered, magnetorheologically-damped suspension mean that it is Ferrari-fast in a straight line, and Porsche-precise in the corners.  And you can almost fit real luggage in the trunk, unlike those cars.
