If you're looking for a fun car on a tight budget, you might be surprised to learn that it's completely possible. There are a lot of fun cars in the under $10,000 range -- and even though you won't get a fancy new supercar for that money, you can certainly get an enjoyable, exciting, thrilling vehicle. Today I'm going to show you five fun new cars you can get on Autotrader for ten grand or less.

2003 BMW M3 Convertible

2003 BMW M3 Convertible - $9,400

The E46 BMW M3 is a fantastic car, with a high-revving straight-six that made an impressive 333 horsepower. Although these cars aren't known for their reliability, their performance makes them worth it -- assuming you can be a bit handy under the hood. This particular M3 is a convertible model. It's traveled 154,000 miles, and it's offered for just $9,400 by BMVW Auto Sales in the Atlanta area. Find a BMW M3 for sale

1995 Chevy Corvette

1995 Chevy Corvette - $10,000

Although the "C4" era of Chevy Corvette is often maligned by Corvette enthusiasts, late production C4 models -- from the mid-1990s -- really were good cars, with big horsepower and relatively modern interiors. This 1995 Corvette hails from the second-to-last year, and it looks pretty nice -- especially in the unusual yellow paint color. It's traveled just 49,000 miles, and it's offered for $10,000 by Beechmont Subaru in Cincinnati. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale

1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata

1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata - $8,000

The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a "fun car" legend -- a tiny, 2-seat, rear-wheel-drive sports car with a convertible top. Miata models from the early years are getting more expensive, and this one is included -- but it also touts just 31,000 miles, and desirable BBS wheels. If you're interested, this MX-5 Miata is offered by Five Star Mazda in Macon, Georgia, for $8,000. Find a Mazda MX-5 Miata for sale

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX - $8,999

The Subaru Impreza WRX is a well-known excitement machine, with a rally car heritage and a fun, enjoyable turbocharged engine. The WRX first came to North America in 2002, and this 2004 model is in fantastic shape -- finished in the WRX's best color, World Rally Blue, and apparently unmodified. It's traveled 138,000 miles, and it has a manual transmission -- and it's offered by Abe's Motorsports in Sacramento for $8,999. Find a Subaru Impreza WRX for sale

2008 Toyota 4Runner

2008 Toyota 4Runner - $9,495

The Toyota 4Runner isn't fun like the rest of the cars on this list, in the sense that you can get in, buckle up, and throw it around race tracks. But it's fun in the sense that you can use it to climb rocks and tackle tough off-roading trails. This particular one is offered with just 100,000 miles -- merely "slightly worn" for a Toyota SUV -- and an asking price of $9,495 from A&G Auto in Oklahoma City. Find a Toyota 4Runner for sale
