recommend me an upgrade car. (2 seater, used, fast, light, cheap)

so lately folks have been ragging on me for my old car. I considered comparable vehicles, but they all suck compared to my car

any suggestions on an upgrade?

price range is <40k (used ok)
must go 0-60 faster than 5.3s
FI friendly
2-seater

only thing I can think of is a porsche, but it seems silly since any porsche I could afford is older than my car. ex-gf had a 370z... it was nice, but slow.

edit: truth be told, I made this thread w/ a conclusion. want someone to prove me wrang.

u could mod the fvck out of an S2k

edit: re-read your thread, if your trying to impress your friendds cuz they're "making fun of you" i'm guessing a honda isnt cool enough.

But I had my practical reasons for keeping my car.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

vettes are too big. I want a go-kart car
s2k is NO... I'd pretty much be starting from 0
370z is nice... but weak.
z4 maybe... just seems like such a trivial upgrade - I already kill carreras.

honestly, just looking for something classy but fast and cheap (like my car).....
