Thinking about buying a newer muscle car

I like my Subaru Impreza a lot, but I really miss the rumble of a V8. I am starting to assemble a list of newer muscle cars I could potentially buy to replace my Subaru.

Question is, what should I get?

I really like the new 5.0 Mustangs. Always been a fan of Camaros, but not sure I am the biggest fan of the new styling. A Dodge Challenger or Charger would also be nice. Also on my list is an 03-04 Cobra Mustang. I could get the Cobra cheaper, and have a Mustang that actually has an independent rear suspension and a lot of power under the hood.

Any other cars I should consider? What do you all think about the cars listed above? Keep in mind I am looking to spend no more than 30k overall.

My Subaru is a WRX. 2.0 4 cylinder, turbo charged, full Greddy exhaust, Turbo XS front mount intercooler, Perin short ram intake. It's a speedy little car, and great in the snow. I am conflicted between just adding different parts to upgrade this car or if my heart actually desires some V8 muscle.

Very true, a 2010+ Camaro V8 is suggested to run 91 or 93 octane.

Hmmm. Interesting question.
I'd love to have one. Always been a Chevy guy, but the others look bad ass as well.

I've heard, but I'm sure some others know first hand or not, but the challengers might be a bit heavy?

Tell yea what I'd like is a Cadillac CTS-V with that Vette engine. Good lord. Dude at my apartment complex a few yrs back had one, and that mother was bad ass. He had a pro charger on it as we'll I believe. That car would give you tunnel vision it accelerated so hard, and seemed to never let up.

Nt sure how to embed from the iPad.....

I suggest test driving all 4-mustang, camaro, challenger and the Charger.

I have a charger r/t. Highly recommend it. The thing is, the charger gives you more car then the others. The Camaro is cool, but for the money you truly get less car. Challenger and Mustang are cool as well, but not as much room. For me anyways. The Charger is big mean and fast.

Test drive them and then price compare.s that's what I did, and I came out with a Charger.

I cant argue with this, I have two an 05 and an 09. If you can stretch your budget out another 10K Id pick up an 09+ V. 556 HP from the factory, runs deep into the 11's with minimal mods and into the 10's with ease. IMO its the best of both worlds luxury and power. I have a track rental coming up and *should* have a 9.7 time slip by the end of the day.

IMO you can go wrong with a Mustang or a Camero. But I do agree, the new Camero look isn't everyone's cup of tea.

He wont find many "lower" mile jobs out there for 30k, but even one with 70-80 or so is a gem if its been well maintained.

The Corvette is the best true muscle car money can buy in my opinion, the challengers and stangs can compete, but only the vette gets across the board high acclaim from the worlds top drivers and car afficionados.

Regular vehicles? GM is at the bottom of the big three, their transmissions to this day are consistenly the loosest i see on a daily basis... put one in park on an incline/decline and it will roll a solid foot.

But the Z06 vette gets that brands star treatment, one thats really been taken care of is always a beaut.

I have a 2005 Mustang. Bought it the first year they came out with the new remodeled Pony's. Love it. Have 110K miles on it now without any issues.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
