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.
For English Racing, this pursuit of perfection has been an ongoing creed for their high performance shop in the Pacific Northwest. The Evo 8, is but one example of the results that can be achieved when a shop hones their craft to the highest level. English Racing seems set on making it clear that they too can be included in the circle of craftsmen who pursue perfection to the point of creating works of art. Make no mistake, the crew at English are craftsmen, capable of fabricating anything you can imagine, and doing it with the level of detail that creates genuinely beautiful pieces.
Olympus Rally was held last weekend in Shelton, Washington. The event started with the announcement that Olympus Rally is officially a Rally America sanctioned event once more after a one-year break. Similar to the Oregon Trail Rally, the Olympus Rally offers extremely beautiful scenery, an assortment of obstacles, miles and miles of back roads and, most important, it has its NW Rally fans! It will be awesome to have Olympus on the national event roster next year giving the teams another event, and giving the sport yet another opportunity to expand and grow. Rally America seems to be doing all they can to help the sport evolve; they’re now nationally televised and in the process of adding other venues. We can’t wait to see what they produce next.
