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?

They are a blast to drive. A ton of torque. Great handling. It will put a smile on your face when you hit the curves.

I'd go with the FR-S.

What I do personally is keep two cars. I have a 4-door "practical" car that I drive to work. It's probably worth $5,000. Then I have a Lotus for fun. That way I don't have to make any compromise with the fun car.

My buddy picked up a LOTUS that he auto-x's with I will post a few FB pics of it here in a second.

I'd be careful with the FRS/BRZ twins. The stealerships have been marking them up like crazy, and a lot of these first gen models are having reports of issue with fit and finish(i.e. rattling, taillights having condensation inside being built up). They are also very low in torque and require you to really bump up the RPM's to stay in the sweet spot, with the car not being as fast as it looks. That being said, it has often times been said to be one of the most fun cars to drive, with the point and shoot steering, minimal body roll, ect, with a rewarding gearbox. But it is a really small car, and you have to be sold on the fun to drive factor, not straight line speed or practicality.

Fun as shit. handles great. fast out of the box (had mine up to 150)

I got mine for 22,895 brand new. Mazda's making a push to get them out the door because of the weak Yen. You could probably get one cheaper. The 2013's are the one to get. They get a lot of things that were options on prior years that are standard on that year.

Cant find them for less than 25k locally. Even then, the Subie has AWD which is mighty attractive.

They list above that. Go to cars.com or something similar. Fill out the send me a quote shit. Put the max price you are willing to pay in there and say the first dealership to beat it gets your business.

Mine was listed at $25k. Put in the email that I wouldn't spend more than $23k. 36 hours later I was signing paperwork at a dealership for $22,895.

Edit: the tech package adds $1500. Tell them you want a non-tech package one. The tech package was needed on 2012s and before but for the 2013 it is unnecessary unless you want an ugly ass touchscreen in the middle of your dash, blind spot monitoring (just pay attention), and a rear view mirror with lights (blah)

And I don't know if autocross counts stiffer motor mounts as not stock, if they don't, buy them shits and deal with the extra vibrations for 3k miles. Shit has eliminated wheel hop and almost all the torque steer on the car.

I think this is what I am going with. Should get under 25 and possibly under 24k with my trade in.

I know of 2 Subaru's that have the 2.5 Turbo engines in them. Before 70,000 miles those engines were toast. The dealership told them the cars have been ran hard and raced too often. They are both in the Springfield area and raced on track 1 weekend a month.
