FOUR second range? Do you understand just how fast this is right? Like realistically this is 400bhp+ territory for any given vehicle that weighs enough to be considered a “car” and an aggressive transmission and/or AWD. Like not going to be running and under $6000 at the same time. Probably not even $12000. Mutually exclusive. I’m going to go with your comment “cheap sports car” - so perhaps you could reduce your need for speed to - say - the 6 second range? You’d still break every speed limit in the country in 8 seconds. Then there would be dozens and dozens of good - great choices. Off the top of my head: Volkswagen GTi, Honda Accord Coupe V6, Mitsubishi Eclipse V6, Acura RSX, BMW M3 (90’s vintage), Mazda RX8 (or 7, but good luck finding one)..
I have loved cars ever since I was old enough to speak. For that reason, I have a long list. There are many nonluxury cars that I would like to have in my collection however the list below only contains my luxury car wishlist. 2013 Mustang GT 500 Dodge Challenger Demon Dodge Charger Hellcat Chevy Camaro ZL1 1970’s Dodge Challenger 1970’s Dodge Charger 1970’s Mustang GT 1970’s Camaro Ford F150 Raptor Ford 1st generation GT BMW M3, M4, M5, M6, and M8 BMW X5m and X6m Lamborghini Murcielago Lamborghini Aventador Lamborghini Urus Lamborghini Hurcan Ferrari 488 Pista Ferrari La Ferrari Ferrari 360 Ferrari Enzo Bentley Continental GT Bentley Bentayga Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Bugatti Chiron Toyota Land Cruiser Range Rover Mercedes G Wagon 6x6 Mercedes G Wagon 4x4 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Hyundai Genesis Sedan G70 Rolls Royce Ghost Rolls Royce Cullinan Toyota Supra Nissan GTR Lexus LFA Jaguar E-Type 1963 Chevrolet Corvette E60 BMW M5 Aston Martin DB12 Aston Martin Vulcan Vintage Jeep Ferrari Daytona
The answer is the MR2 Spyder, with a 2ZZ-GE swap (and upgraded oil pan). A clean one can be found for around 7k and the swap will run you 5k or so. I used to have a stock one. The 8500rpm, 190hp 2ZZ-GE, one of the best Toyota engines ever: The MX-5 and S2000 are comparable, but they're front engine, so you don't get to hear as much of the nice engine music. The S2000 is arguably better in a lot of ways, but you'll also have a hard time finding a good one for 15k, and the cabin is cramped in of those cars. Boxsters of that vintage have reliability and build quality problems. E46 M3s have some horrendously complicated maintenance, plus a rear subframe that's prone to getting bent out of shape. The MR2 is the closest thing to a go kart that a sane car manufacturer has made, and due to the drivetrain similarity, people call it the "poor man's Lotus" (both use Corolla transaxle + motor, though Lotus has the higher output XRS motor). At 2195 pounds wet, only a handful of modern cars are lighter. It does have carpets, radio, power steering and air conditioning, but those are the only "upgrades" it has on the Lotus. The thin sheet of steel and carpet between the engine and your head ensures your ear will be filled with glorious engine noises. Step on the throttle and you can hear the "whoosh" as the manifold fills with air. The engine shakes the whole car, not that you can feel it once you're at speed because the minimal insulation and thin soft top mean that your senses will be attacked by a symphony of NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness). But travelling comfortably is not the point of this car. As if they wanted to discourage long trips, there's a very difficult to access "frunk" with enough space for 2 grocery bags, and tiny "cubbies" behind the seats which take almost as long to get to as the frunk. The car has no limited slip differential so you can break the rear loose without too much trouble despite the large amount of weight over the rear. The rear is heavy so it has significant momentum, and you need to respect the car when you drive it or else you might find yourself spinning into a ditch, or worse. It has no traction control or stability control to save you from slips. It is a pure driver's car.
Not just the handling is “bad” though. Old cars were meant to be driven in the traffic of their time. People in modern traffic rely on their brakes and handling, and even reliable engine performance, a lot more than they used to. There’s a lot to be done to make an old car safe for modern traffic. I bought a 1968 Mustang as a project car a few years ago. The previous owner had already installed an aftermarket suspension package so the handling wasn’t bad, but the steering and the brakes! The old-style power steering system created additional looseness in the steering by design, and stopping a car with non-power four-wheel drum brakes was similar to using the leg press machine at the gym - it wasn’t stopping unless I pushed with about 200 pounds of pressure on the pedal. I installed a “modern” integral power steering box, which upgraded the steering to feel like a 1970s car (not bad at all), retrofitted a power brake booster and the brakes from a 2011 Mustang GT. Now it’s safe at least to drive in modern traffic without hitting anything else. The 1968 model was the first year to feature the collapsible steering column, so no worry about the steering shaft acting like a spear in a front-end collision, at least. The original seats were death traps, or at least spinal injury traps. No head restraint (that thing everyone thinks is a head rest is actually there to reduce neck injuries in a rear-end collision), and the seat backs were only held upright by a very small latch that wouldn’t hold it in an accident. Those seats went out on the curb. I modified the floor pan to accept a pair of E46 BMW M3 power seats (heated too!). My car came with the factory 1968 three-point seat belts, but they had separate latches for the shoulder belt and the lap belt, and I didn’t want to trust them anyway so I installed the BMW seat belts. The car was also a factory A/C car, but most of the system had gone missing. I’d had cars with no A/C in my younger days, but let’s face it, when it’s hot and humid out, having no A/C is no good. I pulled the HVAC box out of the car to give it a good cleaning, looked at it’s sorry condition decided it had to go. A Vintage Air heat and A/C kit went in - modern performance but still retained the look of the old controls and dash vents. Still a long way to go. Driveability wasn’t great - the engine had a performance carburetor and intake manifold but it accelerating in traffic could not be relied on. The young guy I bought it from had no idea how to set up a carburetor. I got it running better, but electronic fuel injection and eliminating the ignition distributor and going to a modern ignition system is on the list. Oh, and those little mirrors on the door? They’re positioned too far back to allow for the triangular vent windows, and you really can’t see much area behind and beside the car out of them. Gotta figure out how to remedy that too. I dream of swapping in a modern engine and suspension, maybe from an E-Class Mercedes, or a Corvette, or something that at least doesn’t have a solid rear axle and leaf springs, but that’ll have to wait. Engine performance standards have changed to. A modern family car or even some minivans can easily out accelerate most of these old cars.
It may be the one of the more collectable M3 models of the e46 M3 produced from 2000 to 2006. I would suggest that the M3 CSL of the same vintage is even more desirable than an M3 with the ZCP package. But as Ben Deneweth stated, the e30 M3 made from 1985 to 1992 is more desirable as it is the original M3, with a great racing pedigree, and is currently worth at least twice what it cost to buy when new.

Some folks talk about resale value, however, what also has to be factored in is supply and demand. Rarity makes things more valuable. Example: BMW M3. The manu-matic is thousands of dollars more than the manual when purchased new, but on the used market, the manual sells for more. Even an ordinary economy car, the automatic is frequently a $1,500 option, but after 7 years or so, the manual will go for around the same price in Kijiji, because those few people that want a manual will pay the same price as an automatic. I always own manuals, and never once have I had a problem selling them privately in the classifieds or online, depending on the time period. With vintage cars, manuals always sell for a lot more than automatics. Now that these dual clutch, computerized manumatics are trickling down from Ferrari to regular affordable cars, people can walk on to a used car lot and buy a used car with a manumatic for a low price, and finance it. What do you think is going to happen when that transmission malfunctions? A typical paycheck to paycheck used car owner won’t be able to afford to fix it, as most mechanics don’t know how, or don’t want to tackle that job. The main thing is this: a manual keeps you sharp, like doing a crossword and going for a run everyday, it keeps you focused. How can that be a bad thing?
There are a lot of parameters when considering the best color for a car. One may opt for a color that is easier to maintain or is able to retain a higher resale value. I’m more into picking a color I like depending on my taste, the personality represeted by that vehicle, or the image it exudes. I may not be able to declare a single best color across all cars. For me, a particular color stands out in one specific vehicle while it turns out to be horrible on another vehicle. Time to break down which colors match which type of cars. • BLACK, always looks beautiful to me on a luxury vehicle. This color often exudes a more formal, stately image. Pair it either with a black-and-red interior… …or a black-and-tan interior. In some instance, it may also look menacing on cars that screams for speed like this Mercedes-AMG E63S Wagon. For a stealthier black car, have the metal and chrome accents including the wheels blacked out then choose an all-black interior with black accents and veneer like this Merc-AMG E63S Wagon. •, If you aren’t into black, ,WHITE, stands out as well on luxury vehicles or premium sports cars, ,especially when opted with a black-and-red interior. Those who want a Californian way of luxury living may choose a white car with black-and-tan interior as this Range Rover Velar shown. By the way, I always prefer a Range Rover with a black-contrast roof regardless of the exterior color! • ORANGE, may not work on me always, but I choose this color on vehicles that exude an image of youthfulness, fun, and adventure. Take a look at this Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon’s ‘Punk’n Metallic’ paint, as well as Subaru XV/Crosstrek’s orange paint. An orange exterior looks nice when paired with an all-black interior, just like the Range Rover Evoque Convertible shown… …but surprisingly, I also discovered that choosing a black-and-tan interior on that Jeep stands out as well. This interior-and-exterior combination just became my all-time favorite. • BLUE, also looks great across different applications too! This shade of velvety blue looks good in this Chevy Impala. It may also work nicely on luxury cars as well. That dark metallic shade of blue from this BMW M5 (called as ‘Marina Blue’) looks amazing as well if speed and luxury comes to mind. A lighter shade of baby blue is great too! Take a look at BMW M3’s ‘Yas Marina Blue’. It’s a more youthful take of speed and luxury. This shade also works well on vintage cars such as the 1957 Chevy Bel Air… …and on new cars that look retro like this Dodge Challenger’s ‘B5 Blue’. • RED, color brings magic on regular, everyday commuter cars., ,Take a look how Honda Accord and VW Golf GTI look like. Red makes these daily drivers look and feel more premium and exciting. Speaking of red, one famous car brand stands out in that color. That has to be Ferrari. No other red car is as awesome as this famous prancing horse. Pair it with no other than a black-and-tan interior color. •, Speaking of Ferrari, a ,YELLOW, color is great if anyone thinks red seems to be more common in the supercar scene. •, Another one is color ,GREEN,. It looks at home especially on some Land Rovers like this classic Range Rover for instance. It’s a nice color for that outdoorsy lifestyle. Enhance that image with a full-tan interior. Another shade of green for speed and youthfulness is this lime green or acid green (whatever they call it) the Dodge Challenger, Aston Martin Vantage and Suzuki Jimny show. Black with matching lime green/acid green contrast looks nice too! Take a look at Aston Martin Vantage’s cockpit. Another retro take of green is this shade which many people call as ‘seafoam green’, ,or ‘reef green’. It looks absolutely great, right? •, Probably my most favorite retro color is ,PINK, especially the salmon and flamingo-like shades. They look even more cool with a contrasting creamy white accents. Before I end this, I have to remind everyone to AVOID CHOOSING A ,SILVER, COLOR AT ALL COST when shopping for a cheap, boring appliance-on-wheels like this… …and this… …and this… …and this! For Pete’s sake! Are you still itching for a boring color on a boring car for the reason of ease of maintenance and high resale value?!? Come on! Spice up your life a little bit. We only have less than 100 years to live in this world. If you agree, give my answer an upvote! A round of applause please. :)
SO let’s just start this off by saying this a *complete* hypothetical, and in no way, shape, or form actually happened…. seriously, no truth in this at all. The story starts with my ownership of a parking space in a Baltimore back alley, that is to say, I was the only one who ever parked there. It was well known that my car went in that spot - at least to me. One night, after working 15 hours on the water taxis, and then drinking in the bars for a couple hours, we drove into the back alley and saw the spot was taken up by a shiny new BMW M3. At the time, I had anarchistic, nihilistic, scumpunk roommate with a weak bladder, and a 3 story climb from his satanic hellpit (basement) to the working bathroom in the house. As a result, his chronic alcoholism led to bottles, and bottles, and bottles of urine being stored under the stairs - for years. There was a variable smorgasbord of different colors, textures, and odors. Now - there had been run-ins with the owner of the BMW in the past - various interactions between a mid-40s yuppie and a 21 year old outspoken skinhead were generally not cordial. Loud music was claimed, doors were knocked on, people were told to fuck off - believe it or not, it was him playing it. So there was a bit of background to the events of the night. He had left his passenger window cracked about an inch and a half. You can probably guess what happened from there… though I’ll go into the details. We picked out 8 liters of particularly fine vintage piss, likely aged at least a year, with a dark brown hue. One of the bottles had a mysterious grey crust on top - whether or not that was the result of a UTI, mucus, or some other foreign substance combining with the 80 proof urine wasn’t a matter for debate - it was getting handled. And so we went, two bottles a piece, upwards and outwards to the back alley. And thusly, we firehosed 8 liters of the most disgusting fluid ever concocted directly into this entitled assholes car. When we left the following morning, the car was still there - it hadn’t been touched. When we got back from work, the car was STILL there, and the window, still down. It had been baking in the urban heat island effect of inner city Baltimore for an entire August day. I was pissed my spot was still taken, but persevered. The next morning, we saw a tow truck, pulling the car out. It was gone for 2 weeks, likely to have the entire interior gutted, removed, deodorized, disinfected, and a new set installed. I thought the guy might have burned it or wrote it off - but I guess he eventually got it back. Never did park in my spot again, though.
