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?

Honestly I've been too far out of Autocross to be up to date(I still own my S2K though), but the reason I ask is that some classes are dominated by one type of car or not and if you want to be competitive in that class you want to look at that type of car. It depends upon how serious your local is 'cause it may not matter as much.

I'm sure the BRZ/FRS is really popular I just don't know how much of a pain is is to get one since they are popular overall. Unfortunately we have a real dearth of new 'sports' cars lately. If you want new the selections might be a bit thin.

One other point to everyone else. For autocross, raw power isn't always the best. Some of the best autoX cars are quick and well balanced but may not have a ton of raw power.

Take the GTO mentioned earlier, I like the car and think it can be made into a pretty decent track car but for autocross I don't think it works...too heavy even with the fun power.

That said the GTO is coming back...it's the Holden, and it's coming back as the Chevy SS.

You have a few options here:

All in one vehicle solution WRX, hatch if you're smart.

Or FWD options Fiesta/focus ST, GTI (heavy/slow), Mazdaspeed 3, Mini.

Or RWD with Daily Driver combo S2000 (the only option), Miata (if gay), 350z (heavy/slow), RX8 (perfect car but tard engine).

I know your tastes from past threads, I just saved you a billion hours. Pick from above and find a stellar example.

Good luck and don't settle for anything less than what you want or be hasty in your selection.

Again, I keep telling you to wait a sec, but the 2015 Mustang will be built on the new EVOS platform and finally get IRS. I have seen some of the concepts, and are moving away from the retro look. I like it.

I can't wait. I can stay off the inevitable complete death by using the bike even more but by the time it turns cold again... I'm gonna need a reliable cage. I hard assed it for 3 years riding the bike year round and it is nothing I care to do again.

Looking at the WRX. The STi is the only one with the LSD. How will this impact me?

Seems to be a wash, you pay a very hefty premium for sti vs wrx, hard to justify the cost imo plus I think every STI has been beat on vs probably 60-80% of the rexs.

Notice the common theme of "scared of the S2000s"

Can you afford the STi model? If so.. DO IT. You'll thank me later. I've modded my 05 Imprexa Wrx Sti to death. Fast as **** in the 1/4 mile and I love doing autocross in it. Not a better car out there as far as driving inthe snow. Even stock they are quick cars.
