Stupid question responded with a stupid answer. You want a fast car but do you have any preferences? Would you like it to be 4, 6, or 8 cyclinders? American made, or import? Does it matter if there are 2 or 4 doors? Does gas mileage matter to you? What about insurance? Do you want it to be N/A or inducted? Chances are if you want something fast I'd look for an already supercharged V8, and a Mustang will most likely be your best bet for your price range. The most popular V8 sports cars are Mustangs Firebirds and Camaro's.

Yeah so pretty broad question as usual... Any types you might be interested in? FWD, RWD, etc. Domestic or Import.. Year range, auto/manual, drivetrain...

ok it doesnt really matter if its american or import i would definently want a manual. number of doors dont matter. Definently not a mustang. way too many of those. uhhh probly not a v8 because im only 16 and i dont want insurance to be too high. as i already said i would like gas mileage to be around 20 or maybe more.

thanks

Well the 3.8li V6 firebirds and camaros were decently sporty, insurance wouldn't kill you, you could find a manual, and being a V6 still get decent gas mileage. That's my advice at least. I used to think like that too when I was younger and more ignorant. "Man there are way tooo many Mustangs I will never want one" Then when I got to know cars more and learned about prices of different vehicles and such, well here I am with a Convertible V8 for 2800$ and I pay only 140$ a month for insurance.... which for me being 17 and my second car is very low considering all things.

Maximas are nice, probably get ~20 mpg, good power but not too much, and nice interior. Not sure what you could get for 8K, but there's always the Altima.

Do you even know the difference between crank and wheel horsepower/torque? Most likely not. And a chip alone will not raise power that much, I don't care what the ad says, they all say UP TO blah blah increase.
