Budget performance cars are a critical part of the mod life. They’re an affordable option for young enthusiasts just entering the market—and many times, drivers develop lifetime allegiances to the makes or models that they start with. Luckily for you, many automakers are focusing on affordable performance in 2015. So Revvolution decided to put together a list of this model year’s fastest entry-level performance cars. The criteria were simple: under $35,000, over 200 horsepower, zero to 60 times under 6 seconds and quarter-mile times under 14 seconds.
Now that 2015 is here, some of those machines are more than 10 years old. Which means that we no longer have to buy new to score one helluva performance bargain! So we dug through the archives and came up with the 9 best used performance cars that can be bought for under 30 grand.
On October 27, just two days after the first 2015 STi ran a firstname.lastname@example.org mph, Prime Motoring took their newly modified 2015 STi out to Island Dragway in Great Meadows, N. J., to see if they could dominate the strip and come in with a faster time. When the dust settled and the smoke cleared, the time clock read email@example.com mph! The guys at Prime Motoring and AMS were extremely pleased with the trap, but are already planning for faster runs. Currently, they are waiting for beefier replacements for the stock driveshaft and axles, as well as a set of 15-inch wheels accompanied by some super sticky tires.
Back in the day, Scotty was a die-hard street racer who always had an affinity for the older, two-door GC body style. He'd shared co-driving duties in a friend's GC rally car, and that experience made him realize how strong the Subaru chassis was. However, he liked the RS's factory look so much that his own car remained stock for a year after he bought it.
