Japanese Sports Cars That You Could Buy For $10,000 or Less
Everyone dreams of owning a supercar like a Ferrari or a Lamborghini but not everyone can afford to buy a car that’s more expensive than a house, so for those of us that can’t buy some Italian supercars, the next best thing is some Japanese sportscars, which could be just as beautiful and have the potential to be just as fast as their Italian counterparts. JDM cars are famous for their almost limitless tuning potential, and their certainly more affordable since they’re already more than a decade old. They may not have some fancy features like modern cars, but they are just as beautiful as any car made today, maybe even more. So if you’re looking for a new ride then check out these beauties which are certified neck-breakers. If you’re looking for one of these cars, then you better check Ebay and Cars.com.
Honda S2000 (1999-2009)
The Honda S2000 first came into the Japanese market during a time when other powerful Japanese sportscars were discontinued, so the S2000 had little competition. The S2000 was 2,800-pound, had a 2.0 liter engine that produced around 240-250hp, so not only is a gorgeous car but is also pretty fun to drive. The S2000 was first released back in 1999 and was produced up until 2009 with only two generations so cars parts are not that scarce. Like many JDM cars, the S2000 is a great platform for tuning and partnered with its gorgeous design, it’s a great car that could be owned for $10,000. Of course you’d have to spend a little more if you want to customize it, but it’s still gorgeous if it’s stock. Being a convertible is a plus too. Trust us, nothing beats on going a road trip with the top down.
Toyota MR2 Sw20 (1989 – 1999)
The Mr2 is one of Toyota’s most gorgeous cars ever produced even by today’s standards. It is a mid-engine car, which is usually found in exotic sports cars. The Mr2 has 3 generations, but we will be talking about the second generation, the SW20 which is actually the most popular. The SW20 was produced from 1989 up until 1999, and it had the most powerful engine between all 3 generations. There is a Naturally Aspirated and a Turbo version, which are both pretty powerful and fun to drive; the Turbo models can dish out up to 240hp stock, and has a lot of potential for tuning. This car is a combination of speed and beauty.
Mazda Miata NA (1989 – 1997)
The Mazda Miata is a lightweight roadster that is affordable and can be enjoyable to drive even if it is a little underpowered compared to the other entries on this list. The first generation Miata produces around 130 hp which is a great choice if you’re not really looking for anything really fast but still really beautiful. The Miata actually holds the record for the best-selling two-seat convertible sports car in history.
Mazda RX-7 FD (1992 – 2002)
An Rx-7 is a stunning beauty even today, but it is like a double-edged sword. It is infamous for having powerful yet fragile rotary engines which makes them a little terrifying to own which is why a lot of people want to own one but decide not to. That is one of the reasons why it can be bought a little cheap even though it is a seriously powerful and beautiful car. Not to worry though, if you do decide to get your own RX-7 then just make sure to buy one in great shape and never skip out on maintenance to keep it going for years to come. The rotary engine is said to be complicated to work on but there are a lot of rotary specialists that can help repair and maintain your RX-7.
Datsun 240z (1969 – 1978)
The Datsun 240Z is the first generation of the Z GT two-seat coupes, produced by Nissan, so it is the predecessor of the Nissan 350Z and the Nissan 370Z. The 240Z may not be as fast as other cars today but for a car that’s around 40-years-old, it’s pretty impressive. It produced around 150hp and had a style that is famous during its era and is still beautiful by today’s standards. It may be hard to come by a cheap 240Z that is in great condition today, but if you are able to see a cheap one, you still have a lot of money left over to restore and modify it, and trust us, when it’s finished, it’ll be all worth it. Sung Kang or Han from Fast and the Furious actually rebuilt his very own Datsun 240Z as seen in the picture above.
