Car people of CP... I need a new car.

My Focus SVT's transmission just bit the dust and I am tired of putting money into this damn car. Gonna buy a new one and drive that ****er off the lot.

I would prefer a 2 door car. Hatch is a plus.
I need the car to be sporty/fast as I do autocross.
Manual gearbox.
Around 25k to spend or so.
No GM products.

Suggestions?

Probably the top 3 I would go for considering your criteria, I believe all have been on Car and Drivers 10 best (possibly not the Fiesta, but most are raving about the new ST.)
Fiesta is bleh to me, ST not so much.

Drop 20 k on a used one and buy a pro charger blower. My brother is the lead machinist and has been there since day one.

Now THAT would be fun.

That v6 is basically unmoddable and expensive.

That 2.0 TURBO needs just a little massaging and it could be a firebreathing monster, capable of sub 12 second quarter mile times and blistering fast laps around a track.

Or, do like I said and gut that WRX. My WRX made 362 WHEEL horsepower (something like 450 for you factory HP types) with just a little baby 2.0 turbo motor. And no, that's not a wind up toy Honda, this made that power at 4k rpms and held it and 300+ foot pounds of torque across redline.

Now they make even more HP and torque with same mods, because they are all packing the 2.5 liter.

For the LOVE of god dont pick a FWD car

CRZ takes about 9-10 seconds 0-60, blah suspension and Chasis, and only 2 seats. Boring to drive hybrid that just looks like it has sporting pretensions.

Good luck scoring a NoS sticker. Probably would wreck it anyway with all the power to the ground anyway.

Dude, if you can survive a little longer, VW, is about to roll out the latest generation GTI, which for all intents and purposes is an Audi A3. It looks stunning and cranks out even more power, and has the best combo of chasis/suspension they have made yet.

For what PR wants to do that torque number would be obscene.

Love me some torque

My Cutlass is no 1000hp monster, but im around ~500 and I can put a dollar bill on the dash, and I will say if you can grab it before I get into 3rd you can have it (pretty funny). That baby cranks out some G's.

When my brother was running his blower with drag radials, I remember my vision going into a gray out sort of thing under hard acceleration.

Sleeper car to.....except for the whine of the blower. Buwwhhaaaaaa

No offense but you're kinda doing this backwards. You said you want to autoX, what class do you want to run in? Street prepared, stock, modified, etc? Also do you want to be competitive?

I would say go here

http://www.scca.com/solo/content.cfm?cid=44517

Look at the 2013 stock classifications and see which cars are in which class and what you want to run in. i.e.

http://www.scca.com/assets/2013%20St...rer%205-17.pdf

Then if you're still deciding you can ask people what they think of the cars you're looking at.

No offense taken.

I would most certainly be running in a stock class. Also, the purpose of a race is to come in first... no? Of course I want to be competitive! lol

Aside from it being stock, I don't much care class (a,b,c...) I'm in.
