Need a cheap and fun first car

Hello!

I will soon get my license, and am thinking about buying my first car. This will not happen soon (need to save some money), but I would like some ideas of where to start. 

My budget will be somewhere around $5000, maybe could go up to 8-10 thousand for something really nice. 

I want a car that will be easy and cheap to maintain, have a spacious (I’m 6’4 with long legs) and pleasant interior, and go fast (would like 0-60 under 6.5 and top speed above 140 or 130 mph). It can have 2 or more seats. I don’t know if everything is possible for my budget, but I have to ask. 

I know a Miata is a common recommendation, but I’d like something that goes maybe a bit faster, if possible. Maybe a Porsche Boxster, but is it reliable? I was thinking about a corvette, chevy camaro, or pontiac firebird, but I don’t want something that I will not be happy driving day to day.

Thanks!

Tomek

Did you have your own first car? Upgrading your car is a great way to have more fun with your car especially your audio system. Try to protect the exterior and then do some crazy things with your interior. Cool

Or you can take a look at the Toyota Camry, Toyota has high quality, good durability and high reliability. The overall feeling is quite commercial, with low fuel consumption, and its performance can stand the test in all aspects.

Fortuner, a 7-seater SUV, is a good choice. Its internal space is very spacious and many practical equipments are installed. It can produce a maximum power of 150 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 400 Nm at 1,600-2,000 rpm.

Nissan GT-R should be on your list. No need to say more about its reputation and status in the automotive world. What's more, GT-R leaves a lot of space for modification. You can see various special editions of GT-R. They're all modifed.

hello,

Nice to hear that you will get a license soon, It Feels great to get license and ride a first car, to give you a good example to which car you can buy, you should look at Toyota or Honda both are good for beginners, as you have tight budget, but you can get a good car under it, just have a look at Bidexport.com they have 150,000+ motor vehicles.

If you need a car with more space, I would recommend Nissan X-Trail. Cubby spaces are well distributed in the front with cup holders aplenty and it even has a large centre console for storage. But the Nissan X-Trail is a spacious car only for the front and middle row passengers. The third-row passengers only have sufficient legroom to not feel cramped.
