Buy A Miata
Source: CarGurus

...Very fun to drive and fuel efficient. Exceptional handling and feel.
Reasonably quick. Inexpensive to repair. Nicely weighted steering with good feedback. 4 wheel disc brakes and 4 wheel double wishbone suspension make for excellent handling. Buy a miata. OK?...

...It has a GReddy turbo(15Gturbine td40h compressor), no ic, vortech 12:1 FMU, Racing plug wires, home made boost control, crappy stock GReddy BOV, fidanza 8lb. flywheel, 6 puck Spec stage 3 carbon metallic clutch.

I loved driving it, met great people with it, had top holidays driving it about, just a great fun car to have...

Fantastic Sports Car Without All The Stuff They Put On Cars Now. Not Needed In A Sports Car.
Source: CarGurus

...Although it didn't have much power the combination of handling, braking and shifting made it a ball to drive. You could wail to the redline and not be breaking the law too much. Over 16 years it required nothing beyond the usual maintenance items. Its sole problems were a squeaky window and a rattle. Both were repaired in the first month. The structure was somewhat flexible but who cared. With a Borla exhaust the sound was wonderful and it made the radio unnecessary. If I had the room I would have kept it but it was time to move on...
