Well they say the McLaren F1 is quick and handles well....

Seriously, we need a price range.

Well the 1/4th mile is the easiest way to define a cars straight line speed...
To give you an idea of how cars stack up...
http://www.albeedigital.com/supercou...0-60times.html
It has 0-60 as well.

Why 0-60?
You like racing up to the speed limit ?
0-60 can be hugely up to tires for your more torquey cars, or high strung cars (high revving).

Re: wich rwd car?

you said you liked 0-60.
Btw altimas, impalas, preludes and tegs are FWD...
altimas and tegs are in addition gutless, although vtec tegras and ludes are kinda quick, but gutless still (no torque).
You should look for V6 RWD cars imo, or turbo 4 bangers.
Turbo mr2s are pretty fast and handle extremely well since they have the engine in the correct place (mid engine).
FWD cars also don't handle well if you hate understeer.
They also have torque steer if they have any kinda of power (maxima++) and the designers were stupid enough to fit an open differential or unequal drive shafts.

Re: wich rwd car?

SRT4 would be a good choice, a DSM, DOHC VTEC Honda's are good (i like mine), MR2, miata, etc....

It really depends on your preference, what you can afford, how much insurance is, and the car that's going to suit your needs (gas mileage and size)......those things all need to be considered.

For 15k you could get a fairly decent vr4. any of those TT's might be a little more maintenance than you're looking for, though. Most any sport compact from the 90's up will probly fit the bill for you. I've always thought eclipses - especially the mid 90's gsx spyders - are very good looking and fun cars. I bet you could find a gsx spyder for under 10grand in excellent condition with plenty of money left for mods, sound system or whatever else you wanted.

Re: wich rwd car?

just make sure it's the AWD version.
Even then I don't think they're anywhere as fun as a classic RWD car because of the FWD based awd system.
...It's 100% fwd untill a front wheel slips and then it tranfers 50% to the rear.
So it's like a FWD car with more grip in effect.
