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 need to take some actual pics at some point. I ended up going with the dual clutch over a manual but it was a really difficult decision. I had always driven manuals and initially tought I would when shopping M3s. The dual clutch still preserves the the throttle/engine breaking of a manual and putting it in drive in traffic is great. Also helps that it shifts faster than anyone could a manual.

Same as the latest generation 335. The 335 motor changed in 2011 from the previous twin turbo to a single twin scroll turbo that is supposed to be a little more efficient. What disappointed me about the 435i is the power is basically unchanged since 2007.

They're calling the 11' 322whp - weird - so how is the single turbo rating higher in wheel horse versus the twin turbo? Ughh....

Putting miles on a car I don't own like a loaner/rental is great. Obviously you have to pay for gas but drive that Camery everywhere or even a weekend road trip.

I think both engines were right around 300 hp. The 2011 switched from a twin turbo to what they called a twin scroll single turbo. The results were pretty much the same with the newer motor having a slightly better power curve and MPG.
