Porsche Boxter...

but from the above choices - 350z
Only because I have driven a 300z and it rocked my world. Can't say I have driven anything close to the other two.

....well so far....looks like the rx-8 is in the lead...I think you could probably make a bomb outta any car though.

I think they are all nice cars...sleek...fast


porsche's are verrrry nice...I think it's the 996 that I like....way too expensive...but a beautiful car. 8-)

None of them really appeal to me.

Hypothetical question then......if someone were to give you one of the cars above....for free.......which would you choose?

And if you'd like instead....name a car under $50,000 that you would want.

Does it have to be 'practical'?

If not, I change my vote to the 2005 Lotus Elise. Yes, they can be had for less than 50K.

rx8

or better yet. get a 3rd gen rx7 and get the engine ported. you can do crazy things with those engines. you can actually get more power out of the NA ones than the turbo ones.

i am actually not that impressed with the 350z. which is suprising because i <3 nissan. i would go with the s2000 over a 350 and i hate hondas. now if your going to mod the 350, thats a different story, there are some bad ass 350 TT kits.

how come you didn't put the audi TT quatro on there? now thats a sexy car.

or what about the skyline?

Making a HONDA fast is like coming out of the closet, yeah you might suprise a few people; but in the end.. your still gay.

Thank You for a voice of Reason.
I have Autocrossed a Borrowed RX-8.
It was Fun, but underwhelming.
I voted for the S2000 out of the poll options, but the Elise Kicks All of their asses.
Any Day, Any Way.
For sheer Torque, I'd wait for the forthcoming Mustang GT-500.
Save what's left of the 50k for Gas and Pizza.
In my Modded Focus, I have outrun a VERY Experienced Nationals Level Driver in a 350Z on comparable tires in an Exhibition Auto-X Event.
Yes, he was Stock w/in the rules, but your question didn't imply Modified anyway. Yes, I said that I beat it in my Focus.
:twisted:
Look to the Elise for the REAL Shiz in that price bracket.
:-)

Quick!!!
