Always wanted an open-top sports car? Here are ten true bargains, from traditional MGs to the unfeasibly cheap Porsche Boxster – and lots in between!

Five grand isn't a small amount but when you're talking open-top sports cars, it often doesn't go far. There are, however, still a few great models that you can buy for less than £5000, and which won't also cost a fortune to run – at least not in the majority of cases...

For some, you might have to compromise a little to stay within budget, and accept that you can't buy the most desirable version – you won't get a decent early MGB at this money for examples – but otherwise there's little to fear.

In some cases, prices are still unfeasibly low, but will go up, or might already be on the rise. So now is a fine time to buy! Scroll down to see which one appeals to you.
