Which car? And at what class level?

Not necessarily the easiest but that’s fine too.

Different types of tracks have different requirements.

A stock untuned Mazda MX5/Miata is a lot of fun around smaller tracks, such as Road Atlanta Club or Iberian, but not much fun around LaSarthe.

A R2/R3 car is fun around La Sarthe and Road America, but is a bit much for Camino.

IMO, more muscular cars, such as a 1970 Mustang, C3 Corvette or Ferrari 365 are a blast around most high speed circuits.

And since they are so easy to drive, Leaderboard tuned cars are boring to drive just about everywhere.

I haven’t explored enough to really come up with a favorite myself. I just bought the Porche pack and it got me thinking about what is most fun to drive.

Bone stock, the E39 BMW M5 is just perfect. If you want modified cars, then there are tons that are amusing in different ways.

Try a 900hp Cobalt or Pinto, I find them fun.

Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.

I find the 2-eleven, Ford Transit(when modded out), and ’65 Mustang Coupe to all be a ton of fun.

Id argue that the 2008 M3 is also perfect straight off the show room floor. Probably has the best engine sound in the game too imo.

Bone stock, I think the race Corvettes are pretty fun. It’s fun trying to wrangle those monsters with all assists off, especially on Nurburgring.

the A70 supra in my sig picture

its 2JZ swapped and making 850hp with a twin turbo. street tyres for some extra grip and drift tuned for old downhill. it is positively lethal on transitions and can change direction faster than smart car hit by a semi truck.

there isn’t much more fun than flat footing down stage C with the rear sparking off the barriers as you hold the thing on so much lock you look out the driver side window to see forwards.

6 Fun Cars to Drive for Less Than $10,000

Would you believe you can buy a fun car to drive in today’s crazy used car market? You can; you just have to search like a hawk on your local Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace to find one. The folks over Donut Media pulled out a strong list of fun-to-drive cars that can be purchased even if you have a strict budget. Here are six of our favorites.

1. First-generation Porsche Boxster

A rear-drive Toyota with a six-cylinder engine and Lexus luxury? Sign us up! The first generation of the Lexus IS 300 was a little beast as it pumped out 215 hp and 218 lb-ft of torque from its 3.0-liter straight-six engine. Couple that power with an available five-speed manual transmission, and you have a luxuriously sporty ride for less than $10,000.

Edmunds has this to say about the IS 300’s ride in their review: “The IS 300 is an easy car to pilot aggressively, thanks to its responsive steering and braking, nimble size, and excellent driving position.” We would say that it’s a “win” in our book.

3. 2010 BMW 128i

The 2010 BMW 128i follows the “fun” recipe by offering a 230-hp inline-six engine in a rear-drive small coupe. The 128i is a fun little car to toss around in the corners thanks to its sporty suspension and small-car dimensions. The editors at MotorTrend once called it a “steal at just under $30,000” when it was new. Considering you can find decent examples on the used market for less than $10,000, the BMW 128i is a downright bargain.

4. 8 th -generation Honda Civic Si

It’s no secret that we have a lot of love for Hondas around here, and the eighth-generation Civic Si is one of our favorites. Produced from 2006 to 2011, this version of the Civic Si came with a high-revving K20 engine that made 200 hp. That energetic powerplant was connected to a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission that put the power down with the help of a limited-slip differential.

As you can imagine, that setup made the sporty Civic really fun to drive, especially in canyon settings. Fortunately, you can still find one for less than $10,000. It just might have a lot of miles on it.

5. Honda Del Sol

The Honda Del Sol was a roadster with a Targa top that was based on the fifth-generation Civic. It was small and lightweight, which means that even if you find one with a SOHC, 125-hp engine in it, it’s still fun to drive. However, if you can find a Del Sol with the 160-hp B16A engine, then you’re really in for a treat. Although, that one might cost a little more than $10,000 in today’s market.

6. Toyota MR2 Spyder

The Toyota MR2 Spyder was the version that not many people wanted. It didn’t exude any crowd-pleasing aesthetics, nor was it very practical. However, what many of those naysayers may not know is that the MR2 Spyder was really lightweight, and although its 1.8-liter engine only put out around 138 hp, it was still fun to drive. Additionally, its rear-drive configuration and folding soft top made for a lot of open-air canyon-carving fun.

Fun car for less than $10,000

You might not think you can find a fun car for less than $10,000 in today’s market, but it is possible. These six cars are a good place to start. Just remember that you may have to do a little digging to find a diamond in the rough, though.

Most Fun To Drive Cars Under $15,000

Most Fun To Drive Cars Under $15,000

Ferrari. McLaren. Lamborghini. Porsche. These names are among the most vaunted in the industry, and they’re presumed to be synonymous with incredible driving experiences—fun, fast, simply phenomenal. But you don’t have to spend supercar money to have serious fun behind the wheel. In fact, you don’t even need to spend more than $15,000 to have a great time in some of the best machinery ever built for the pursuit of driving fun.

7. Chevrolet Corvette

The Chevy Corvette probably had the most power and highest sticker price from the factory of any car on this list (though the M3 and Boxster S may give it a run for its money) when it was new. But now that it’s aged a bit, the Corvette is actually one of the least capable cars on this list, but only because not many Corvettes have dipped down below the $15,000 mark, and those that have are likely to be from the C3 or C4 generations, which are generally down on power and not the best handling examples made. If you can find a C5-era Corvette for under $15,000, you just might want to snatch it up—those are very nicely balanced, powerful sports cars that any enthusiast will get years of enjoyment driving.

6. Ford Mustang

2007 and older

While not as fast, as pretty, or as exclusive as the Corvette when new, the Ford Mustang is much more affordable, so the $15,000 price cap buys you a lot more car. Mustang fans are also frequently enthusiasts themselves, so chances are very good you can find a Mustang with aftermarket modifications that enhance it well beyond factory performance levels—no matter whether you like drag racing, autocross, track days, or just a spirited canyon drive on the weekends.

5. BMW M3

2004 and older

A standard—a benchmark, really—of the sports car world, the BMW M3 is a car every enthusiast should drive at least once in their lifetime, and one they should own if money and desire align. For under $15,000 you’ll mostly be looking at older M3s, especially those from the E46 era or older. Fortunately, these are some of the most iconic and desirable M3s, too—the prices on them just haven’t run away yet, like they have with essentially all Porsche 911s.

4. Nissan 350Z

2006 and older

Possibly the best bargain on this list, the Nissan 350Z (note: not the 370Z) delivers lots of horsepower, great handling, and timeless style for not very much money. There’s also a lot of aftermarket support for the Z line, including the 350Z, so you’ll be able to modify your car to further enhance it—something you’ll almost certainly have budget left over for, since even a very nice example of a low-mileage 350Z probably won’t spend all of your $15,000 budget.

3. Honda S2000

2005 and older

In many ways, the Honda S2000 is the purest driver’s car on this list. It’s been honed down to the core essentials, so much so that the car simply doesn’t make some compromises that you might wish it did. The steering wheel position can’t be adjusted; combined with a snug driver’s seat and limited range of motion for that seat, taller and heavier drivers may not fit in the car at all, or may find their knees interfere with use of the steering wheel. For those who fit, however, the S2000 is a must-drive—many have likened it more to riding a motorcycle than driving a car. It’s just that involving and direct.

2. Mazda MX-5 Miata

2006 and older

Less powerful, less razor’s edge than the Honda S2000, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is the sports car everyone should drive, enthusiast or not. Why? Because it’s fun, it’s inspiring, and it’s completely accessible. This is perhaps the most confidence inspiring fun-to-drive car on this list (or any other list), and it’s nearly ubiquitous, meaning you can buy a Miata and still have as much as $10,000 of your $15,000 budget left for things like car improvements or driver training.

1. Porsche Boxster S

2001 and older

Other cars on this list present greater value per horsepower, or less expensive maintenance regimes, or may just be a bit more economical to run. But though the Porsche Boxster S may not be the cheapest choice, it’s easily the best all-arounder for nearly anyone. Porsche’s brilliant flat six engine, impeccable chassis dynamics, and the fact that this is one of the only mid-engined cars you can find at this price point (as well as the best), and you have a recipe for a car enthusiast’s dream. The aftermarket for Porsche Boxsters is also very good, should you decide you wish to get more serious about your driving.

No matter which of these cars you pick, you’re sure to have a great time driving, whether it’s to work and back every day, to the canyons or hills on the weekend, to the drag strip, to the local mall parking lot for an autocross, or to the track for a day of high-performance driver education.
