$15,000 Used Car With ~300HP?

E39's have a lot of electronic problems. It costs a lot to maintain them as well.

It's hilarious because a lot of people who build cars end up parting out/selling their car within 3 years and don't gain anything out of it. Rather losing shitloads of money. BAD investment.

Truth, that satisfaction only last so long after you build it and then shit starts to break down or need replacing and you just don't want to deal with it anymore. I spent way more than my car was worth and took a major loss when i had to sell it...

99.9% of the cars people are listing arn't anywhere near 300hp in this thread. You can get a f-body for about 6-10g's. The LS1 they have is known to make 300-330HP and around 360TQ to the wheels bone stock.
Mar 20, 2012 @ 01:01
Mazda miata with an ls1 swap or a 454. As long as you are good with sliding absolutely everywhere

pontiac gto is going to be a great choice for power. don't forget about insurance and gas. 350zs are excellent so are g35 but they are known to burn oil and are very costly to mod. there is the mustang gt as well. great platform and HUGE aftermarket. A terminator would be sick, but for 15k you would get a high mileage one.

You should check out the Bugatti Veyron. With that big budget of yours, that wouldn't be a problem.

I suggest an MKIV VW R32.

did op end up getting something?

I want to see the world burn

Apr 18, 2012 @ 01:02
B5 S4 and re tune it youll easily have 300bhp, Evo 8/Sti but insurance will rape you, E46 M3 but itll have to have around 60-80k, any muscle car with really low mileage.

I just got a 350z and love it, g35 is same with +2 seats. Thats probably the best overall car for your price range.
Power, Reliability, ok mileage, and sporty.

i dont know if in florida cars are just cheaper or you're all just talking out of your ass. Ive seen PLENTY of g35s with low mileage sell here for 12k , ones with 150k on em sell for 7999....

You can get early mid m3 here for 15k ...

the 04 cts-v with an LS6 from factory for 13k, and it has 400 rwhp+
Jul 19, 2012 @ 22:03

A Jetta is fast? & reliable? Since when? Even with a turbo upgrade, that shit is slow as hell.

~'93 FD, best low km:$ ratio you can find. A-spec bumper, paint. bank the remaining $3k for when you have a problem.

Too bad RX7's aren't what you call "reliable", a true drivers car as it seems but I would never recommend it to those who wouldn't wrench a car themselves. Not that I have owned one but wankels are known for having issues.

Apparently they have less issues if you keep the revs up, less wear on your spinning triangles if they spin faster, but I know what you mean. They are 15-20 years old, so problems are guaranteed to occur, that's what the banked 3k float is for. Personally though, I think the FD with the A-spec bumper looks nicer and newer than most current RWD offerings.

It does fit OP's budget, and is near the power output.

You'd have to be pretty lucky to find a 12k FD in decent condition buuuut you're right honestly, if you take good care of it and ACTUALLY do maintenance, it can last you a long time. 2k on a rebuild, 1k on reliability mods could do well.
Mine has near 90k and compression is still close to factory spec on the og engine.
I love mine to death but I'll never ever recommend it as a car to someone, especially as a daily driver.
