>If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best sports cars under 10K so you can pick the perfect car for you.
One would think that an enthusiast with $10,000 in their pocket can’t even come close to buying an exciting sports car, but is that really the case?
To put things into perspective, the cheapest car right now on the North American market is $14,395, whereas many affordable sports cars are double the value. So, what about the second-hand market?
Not too long ago, a sum of 10,000 dollars would have got you a lot of bang for your bucks, with 15-year-old sports cars being nothing more than interesting second-hand performance bargains at the bottom of their depreciation curve. Fast forward a couple of years, and all those overlooked gems became collector classics, rising in value year after year. Moreover, interesting second-hand cars are no longer depreciating as they once used to, making the quest for an affordable sports car harder than ever.
At first glance, the situation is grim, but with a bit of a compromise, you can still get a fun and fast car.
This is our choice of ten of the best sports cars under 10K:

Here’s a closer look at our best sports cars under 10K:
1. Ford Mustang
America’s sweetheart has been synonymous with an affordable sports car since it first hit the market in 1964, so it’s no wonder the second-hand market is filled with V8-powered Mustangs too.

For $10,000, you’re most likely to get an early fifth-generation S197 Mustang GT in either coupé or convertible form. Usually, these examples show mileage from 100,000 to 150,000, and you can find them with both manual and automatic transmission.
Apart from the most obvious choice, other options include late fourth-generation Mustangs, but even third-gen 5.0 Fox Body Mustangs fit the bill as sound examples can be bought from $8,000. If you’re into a daily sports car, buying an S197 seems like a more logical choice, whereas the other two are better off as weekend cars and sensible investments.
2 Mazda MX-5 Miata
A list of genuinely affordable and absolutely sporty cars can’t be complete without the car that reinvented the roadster, the one and only Mazda Miata. The market for the Miatas is vast, and the community is significant and supportive, all making the Mazda MX 5 an excellent buy for an entry-level enthusiast car and one of the best sports cars under

Cool Whip: HB-Custom’s crisp Suzuki DR650 scrambler
If we had to use one word to describe the bikes that roll out of Holger Breuer’s workshop, it would be ‘crisp.’ Whether he’s building a bobber or a scrambler, the man behind HB-Custom has an eye for perfect proportions and liveries that pop. Even when he’s working with a tired old Suzuki dual-sport as a donor, Holger manages to make magic.
This 1994 Suzuki DR650 came to the HB-Custom workshop in Husum, Germany, all the way from Berlin. Holger’s client actually booked two bikes in at once; an old BMW boxer to turn into a bobber for solo rides, and the Suzuki, which was destined for around-town duties and the occasional two-up jaunt.
The bike arrived as a rolling chassis with a very loose brief, so Holger envisioned a svelte scrambler for whipping through Berlin’s city streets. He’s built a number of handsome custom Honda Dominators, and figured that he could apply the same formula to the Suzuki DR650. And he was right.
But first, the Suzuki’s well-worn motor needed attention. Holger tore it down and rebuilt it, complete with new seals and gaskets and a fresh coat of paint. This engine might be almost three decades old, but it’s clean enough to eat off of.

Custom à la carte: A BMW R nineT streetfighter from France
Lionel Duke builds a little bit of everything. His Nice, France-based custom shop, Duke Motorcycles, has transformed Honda Goldwings, Kawasaki ER6s, and Ducati Scramblers into unique one-off creations in recent years. But the most interesting thing to come from his garage actually isn’t a bike at all—it’s a box full of parts.
More specifically, a box full of parts to convert any stock BMW R NineT into a radical-looking plug-and-play custom streetfighter. It was this very kit that caught the eye of Duke’s latest client, who saw a picture of Lionel’s prototype build online and decided he wanted one for himself.
The client loved the original kit’s supercar-inspired design, but wanted a few unique touches of their own to truly make it theirs. And Lionel was more than happy to oblige.
“He had been asking around Parisian workshops that offered their own R nineT kits,” he says, “but none of them were willing to modify their standard parts to suit his tastes. I told him that it wasn’t a problem for me, as I actually prefer to do different things on each project.”

We’re feeling both retro and futuristic this week, so we’ve rounded up bikes that cover the full spectrum. Leading the charge is Verge’s new Mika Häkkinen edition electric bike, followed by the new Fantic Caballero 700 scrambler. We then profile a Yamaha SR400 from Australia, before coming in to land with a fetching Triton from France.
Verge Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition With an impressive 51 Formula One podiums and two championships to his credit with Lotus and McLaren, the Flying Finn knows mechanical excellence. So when Mika Häkkinen partnered with electric superbike manufacturer Verge Motorcycles, you knew it was something worth paying attention to.
Häkkinen joined forces with Verge early in 2023, and instead of just a plain endorsement, Verge announced that Häkkinen is now part of the company’s advisory board and has personally designed his own limited-edition bike. Capped at 100 units, each Häkkinen Signature Edition Verge comes with a numbered plaque with Mika’s signature, unique cosmetics and will sell for around $87,000.
