Not for nothing, but if you want to go on the cheaper side of things. You should also consider the Fiat Abarth. With a tune and some other extremely cheap bolt on's you can achieve over 200hp and 200tq in it, which is fantastic for a car that only weighs 2,300lbs. Also, very cheap to maintain, and the exhaust note is almost on par with some exotics.
I myself am considering one. I just need to figure out my parking situation first, cause my stupid HOA only allows us 2 parking spots. Doh!
