Pretty much the topic. Just got my 1st job out of college and I love driving but I don't want to spend too much on a new car. Anything that's used and fun to drive for around $15,000?

1st thing that comes to mind to me would be a g35/350z

you really have to be more specific though... I'd be hopping on an s2000 asap

Neither of those hit 300 without being heavily modified...and even then reliability comes into play and considering he's a college student i wouldn't make that move.

OP if your looking for something with 300 your best bet would probably be a car on the higher end such as BMW/Audi/Benz but with 15K your going have to take a hit on mileage if you don't care about that sort of thing.

And for a G35 with decent mileage your looking at 18K if your lucky and that's including little to no mods...

close enough to 300 for me
also, he says he got his 1st job OUT of college, I assumed he's done?

15k is enough to find a g35 with <100,000KM up here...

For $15k I'd get an Audi S4 B6. AWD V8.

Really depends though. If you want RWD, then I'd say a 350z, G35, or e46 M3...of course having around 70k~ miles.

Get ready to rebuild the trans again until you step up to a PPG gear set.

How is a s2000 going to hit 300 any easier then the other larger displacement cars.

Is that what you read on the sticker info? Cause no way a 350 or G35 is putting 300+ to the wheels in stock form at the crank sure but not at the wheels...

Evo 8, WRX, and S2k would be my choice.

Personally not a fan of Z's and G35's, they feel like boats in stock form

you could get a '08 v6 altima, idky that car came into my head, but it gets 270 at the crank and im sure you could score one with less than 50k for 15 g's of youre good with car salesmen. Also, at least you would be in a newer car cause for 15 grand you are gunna be looking at something that has seen a lot of pavement over the years if you want 300 hp, plus insurance is gunna be a huge bitch.

15,000 and 300 hp, damn you got to get something with some heavy mileage. I'd go for an old WRX, STI, even a G35. That insurance is gonna get you hard though haha.
