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.

I had recalled some Escalade model the offered a while back that was absurdly fast for a giant SUV and found this vid. They have some other supercar recently that topped out higher than a Veyron Super Sport which I think has since been beaten by someone. Maybe koenigsegg.

People can mode GTR's more so than almost any other car. Some of the GTR fanboys have absurdly powered cars. I've seen TopSpeed in Alpharetta tune some to around 1900 HP. after full exhaust replacement+mods alone.

Have you considered the 2005-2006 GTO? 400 hp LS2 engine. I had a Cyclone Gray '05 but sold it when my son came along. I miss that car... You could get a nicely used one for under 20K. NICE leather seating, Blaupunkt stereo system.

Imagine the motors are basically hand built tanks then.

After a trans swap and a little boost 8.9's is the goal. All in a car I drive 80 miles a day taking my daughter to school in.

How so? Just curious as the tuner companies are out of my element as someone who prefers only stock and Hennessey has seemed to have put out stuff that at least appears legit in their claims.

Pretty much - I'm not sure if I told you - but I had an 06 A4 3.2 in which the timing chain broke, I bought an 07 335i Sedan in charcoal - got the JB4 and AR downs+ER charge pipe. Kept having exhaust leaks - pissed me off one morning - so I traded it for a 09 335i coupe black on black - got it tuned w/ the Cobb Access port. I am not to the level of these Caddys - but I've never been beaten upon a challenge, so far. Love that car - I also got an engine over haul in the Audi for my daily beater.

I am looking at the newer dual clutch m's next year - totally dope rides.

I saw the M3/4 at the auto show and thought the 4 door might have looked better even though I usually prefer them in 2 door form. I'm expecting those to both be pretty damn impressive at stock and the forced induction probably gives more room for mods than the previous high rev V8.

is your m dual clutch? also - do you happen to have a picture - I literally could talk cars all night. It's a new found interest and I'm somewhat a n00b - but it's a lot of fun. lol
