Best impractical fun car 40-50K - Page 7

post #91 of 102
Thread Starter 
Well, I pussied out and went for something more practical. I may be on a different engagement come next year and may actually have to drive my own car to work for a while, the horror. I only keep cars for a year at a time so I'll just have to live with it: 2006 M3 Competition Pkg () Interlagos Blue on Cinnamon () 4600 miles ( ) Premium Package (I couldn't find one with the cloth) ( ) Navigation ( ) Park Distance Thingy ( , so practical) Oh well..

Definately a Z4 BMW. I just sold one a few months back to be more "practical" and miss the hell out of it. Hard to beat for the price but people seem to either love or hate the aesthetics.

Any TVR? Its hard but fun to drive, and the inability to get (expensive) parts should fill the impractical part as well...

I didn't think so either until I saw...

Problem is a cayman is a practical car. Nice to see them so cheap though my girlfriend would like to get one. The turbo system is 10 grand installed. Do some suspension tweaks and for under 65k you can have a porsche that can beat a GT2.

I see this is old but I thought it was funny how many people are all over the lotus elise and exige. Leads me to believe ya just haven't driven one. On the race track it's a super star. On the streets it is a dog. Unless you are gonna throw a turbo in one then I wouldn't get one for the street.


Under 50k there are so many fun cars. You can get a 2001 Z3 M Roadster for under 30 grand now and man is it fast as hell.

How much is a Caterham?

Another vote for the Lotus Elise or the Catherham Super 7, Make mine British Racing Green.

If you want a fast car look into a K1 Attack. For those who dont know it.
This is a kitcar, but not your avarage kitcar i must say. Chassis has been tested stronger that some Nascar chassis and i weighs less than nothing. Buy a turnkey and get the option of honda engines or ford. anything from the 1.6 vtec to a ford v8.

This thing has the looks and it flatout performs!!
