hey/o/, I'm a complete brainlet when it comes to cars, but I've recently done really well with my business and since I'm in college I want to drive a cool car that I can use to learn a lot more about cars in general.

>I have 10k to put down
>I am in college and have few bills as I'm on scholarship, so I can budget at least $500 a month for a car payment and insurance
>I want something with great performance that doesn't have to be super practical, to the point where a 2 seater would be more than enough room

Cars I've looked at so far, ranked in order:
>Porsche 987 S(anywhere from 15k to 25k+ for a good one)
>Mercedes C63 AMG(specifically 2009-2013; also 15k-25k+)
>S550 Mustang GT(22.5k-30k)
>2015+ WRX STI(20-30k)

Any other cars you'd suggest for this pricerange? I'd rather not have a huge payment but I need something fast, fun, reliable, and that looks good, and each of these seem to fit the bill quite well.

I have a 2012 Hyundai Accent base model.

Only ever had two issues, one was electrical and they fixed it, basically just made the car lock up when turning it on. That happened twice and hasn't happened since like 2014.

The other was battery dying quick, which I think may have just been a symptom of shitty Walmart batteries I was buying.

First time posting here, will post this on /his/ if this is too off-topic

Did cars turn into plastic because of the consumerism meme of the late 20th century? Something something giving away our steel industry to E. Asia and stuff? Did the waning steel industry in the US & Australia lead to American cars being shittier in the 80's which then led to the import of all those Japanese and European cars? Fuel efficiency aside, was this because of increasingly service economies and idk what else desu. I feel like they're also less aesthetic desu. My friend told me everyone drives automatic in the US because Americans because stupid during this time.

>HURR PLASTIC BAD
Plastic is a god-tier body material and only mouth-breathing retards like you fail to see that because of the steel meme. All the body is is a skin for the rest of the car. All of the crash structure, frame reinforcement, etc is internal. Why the fuck WOULDN'T you make the panels thin sheet metal or plastic? Saves weight.

I watched that season premiere this morning and was underwhelmed. The Grand Tour isn't about cars anymore, well, it never really was from the start. This show is wholly about the 3 personalities now. They dont even really review the cars anymore. No remarks about how any of the 3 supercars actually drive, just shots of them driving the cars around potholes and shit. They put some actual celebrities on this time, and in a neat Jaguar F-Type but barely any remarks about that car either.

I want to see and hear about the cars, not just how short Clarkson and May think Hammond is. That shit is fun and cute very briefly, but they've doubled down on it and now it is almost entirely the show, with some cars sprinkled in.

This is why more people are starting to watch Doug.

I have a Mini and I love it. '05 Supercharged. I think you should drive the car and see if you like it (if you havent already). I fell in love after I test drove, so I bought it. What are you buying the car for? Fun car? DD? Will you be doing repair work yourself?

My aunt has one, bought in 2006 and still got it today. Has been extremely reliable, all it ahs needed is a new exhaust due to rust (salt on scottish roads) and consumables. Back seat and boot are tiny though, so don't expect a practical hatchback. Drives really nicely though.
>>
>>18340351
Like >>18337953 said, for the price its a decent deal. Things I can tell you to look for- rust beneath tail lights, power steering issues, rotted rubber, and cracking plastic. Specifically the power steering reservoir. Should be a yellow-brown plastic jug in the back of the engine bay. They like to split in two. Rubber condition will depend if the car was left outside or not. Let me know if you look at it and have any specific questions

Try and only get the GXP. Only one worth the money altho you can get the base ones for sub 7k now.

It's not as good as a Miata but its still a fun roadster,

Could any anons give me some advice on how much it would take to do a full rebuild on a 302 Windsor from a Mustang LX? I wanna do it myself, sans the machine work, and I wanna know how much I should plan for. Pic related isn’t mine

Oh by the way, does that include any gains from tuning that I’d have to get done?
>>
>>18339771
I'd argue that swapping an engine and making the car even more front heavy is pointless when OP just wants a "mild" build, just jumping into this thread.
>>
>>18339892
Gains from tuning is kind of moot, since you'll always want the engine to be "tuned" properly. It's not hard to tune a 300hp windsor though, nothing really special to it besides making sure it's not too rich or too lean and that your timing is in order. Basically no tuning required at that power level, honestly. Maybe a bump up to 19/24lb injectors if you really wanted to and an upgraded fuel pressure regulator to tune for A/F.

The issue with your power goal is that for basically the same amount of money (besides actual short block), you could get much more power with something like a 347 or a 408. 347 with those same mods will be in the 400ish range and the 408 could be easily near 500 depending on the cam. It just depends on what you want to do with it though. 347 shortblocks can be had for around $2100 and 408s for a little more. You don't need forged anything or an aftermarket block for a basic street motor with a 6k rev limit.

That's only if you are already taking the motor out though, otherwise there's no need for a 300HP build.

>>18339930
The thing is, no matter how mild the build, if you are swapping shortblocks you have to keep in mind that a 351W will make a lot of power and be even more street friendly at that same power level. A 400HP 351W is way nicer on the street than the 302 at 400hp, not that it is bad either. The weight doesn't matter unless you're trying to compete, because when any weight added by the 351 block would even out with stock weight when you swap on the aluminum heads, intake, headers, etc.

If his shortblock is healthy, then I wouldn't bother touching it unless you had bigger power goals.
>>
>>18339956
Lol I take it you don’t really like the 302 much.
>>
>>18341440
No, I own a 302 and I like it.

Nothing I said was a slight towards the engine at all, it's very good. It just has limitations that come with the lack of displacement or an aftermarket block. It is a very good platform N/A for someone wanting 300ish hp or even with a mild amount of boost for anyone wanting around 500. If you respect the limits, they live a very long time and even if you break the block they can be had very affordably.

It is arguably one of my favorite motors.
