Have you always wanted a sports car but thought that it was out of your budget? Think again. A used sports car may not be as technologically advanced or luxurious as a new one, but it'll still be a high performance and well-built machine. Cars depreciate a lot in their first 10 years of life, and sports cars are no exception. If you've got $10,000 to spend on your next car, consider these fantastic models. Just make sure to get some diagnostics before driving!
1. 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1
A 305 HP 4.6 L V8 engine powers the Ford Mustang Mach 1, which was released in numerous flashy colors and featured a significant redesign from prior models. The 2003 Mustang was a retro-themed vehicle that recalls classic cars and is perfect for the vintage enthusiast who still wants modern features.
2. 2000 Corvette Hardtop Coupe
Interested in a convertible? This sleek, low-slung machine has a 345 HP V-9 engine and can go from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds. The 2000 Corvette Hardtop Coupe is a relatively rare find, but it's well worth it if you do. With superb handling and Corvette-grade performance, it's one of the most stereotypically "sports car" cars on this list.
3. 2000 BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster
If you want a car that is clean, compact and stylish, the 2000 BMW Roadster might be a perfect choice. BMWs blend sports performance with luxury and even older models are a joy to drive. With smooth suspension, a powerful 2.8 L engine and an aggressive appearance, the Roadster is the perfect blend of style and speed.
4. 2002 Chevy Z28 Camaro
Are you into more aggressive vehicles? Then take a look at the Camaro. An extremely affordable cross between a muscle car and a sports car, the Chevy Camaro has a 310 HP 5.7 L engine and is designed to dominate the road.
5. 2001 Porsche Boxster
Everyone wants to own a Porsche. Did you ever think you could get one for under $10,000? The Porsche Boxster is an understated vehicle, with a subdued frame and straightforward design. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds and has a top speed of 135 mph. Talk about speed!
