Don't buy an Evolution MR, they have the weaker transmission.

Great suggestion. Honda reliability. Award wining trans. Lots of fun to drive. Great seats. Trunk is small and the car is small in general, but if you can get over that, it'd be a geat car.

Go S2K or a modded Miata. I must say that the latter is the funner choice, however.

if he can settle for the lower amount of power might as well just buy a 3.7 v6

Do you want best or fastest? Entirely different things.

Stock or modded?

03-04 SVT Cobra's are under 20k, good power, 6spd, IRS so it handles decent. The motor can handle 7-800hp before needing built. I actually sold my last coupe for 15,500 with high miles a few years ago.

If we're talking about slow cars for under 10k, you can do a lot better than an RX8

for under 10k why not just get a CPO Civic? Very reliable. Then again I didn't read your criteria. . . is it supposed to be fast or something?
