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.

Got no issues with my Charger, and it's my 2nd one.

Can easily out run those damned tricked out cars those teenagers are making these days. Damn kids don't know the meaning of American Muscle.

Why? I trapped 138 when I was at 750ish to the tire.

Ok. That's nice time - IDK I just didn't think a Caddy would do that considering their weight, I always was under the impression they were fairly heavy. I don't really know - I just questioned it.

Okay not sure that this is the proper place to post this, nor do I care, but I saw something today that weirded me out. It looked like one of those Pontiac Aztecs but God as my witness it had a Porsche emblem on the back. Is this shit real or did someone glue a porsche emblem on an oversized Lemans?

The Hennessey part makes it more reasonable.

You should get that Nissan GTR and get you like 1800hp Mia - those things are limitless for moding.

I saw the prototype of the '15 Mustang at the Dallas auto a few weeks ago and was pretty impressed. European sports cars are more my thing even though I have owned a Mustang Cobra but it seemed like the new Mustang was a fair amount more refined in appearance/body lines (didn't look cheap) while still preserving the classic look. The '14 models looked fairly dated compared to the new platform.
