First Car Suggestions & Ideas

Hey guys, I havent posted here in a while but I'm back! I just recently got my permit and now I'm looking for ideas of a first car. I have looked at pretty much everything and havent been able to find the perfect car yet. Its got to have decent mileage, practicality, a fairly cheap price, and its got to be fast. Some of the things that I have looking at are:

VW GTI (maybe 20th Anniversary or 337 if I can afford it. I would probably have to add a short throw shifter to the regular GTI though. I also heard that the suspension setup sucks)
Chevy S-10 Xtreme (extended cab, 4.3L auto)
Chevy Camaro Z28 (possibly SS but its more expensive and hardly faster)
MazdaSpeed Protege
Subaru WRX (not STi because its too expensive)
GMC Syclone (can get one for cheap with more than 70,000 miles but the reliability is iffy)
RSX Type S

I'm open to lots of suggestions but its got to look good and be pretty fast. I know I'm going to get tons of people saying "get a civic and disconnect 3 spark plugs and learn to drive" but I'm going to drive it responsibly - just for the track and backroads and stuff.

What are your opinions? Oh, also, I really am not a huge fan of front wheel drive but. . . a lot of cars are. Also, please do NOT say SRT-4. Its one of my least favorite cars
