Depends on what you can get for under $10,000, and it depends on what you mean by fastest. Thats a pretty broad question, and the market is always changing.

Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX
Mitsubishi 3000Gt VR4
93-95 Mazda Rx-7 (my fav)
91-96 Nissan 300zx Twin turbo (expensive to maintain)
91-95? Toyota MR2 Turbo
as mentioned before Supra
Those are pretty much the only cars that come to mind.

He never said anything about a turbo. If you want to go stock for stock, an N/A LS1 will beat up on all of those turbo cars on your list. If you want to talk modded for 10k, it's hard to beat an old fashioned N/A 5.0.

Actually he did.

Wow, I read that damn first post like 5X before I said "he didn't say anything about a turbo". This thread is just not happening for me.

And a number of suggestions are going well over the $10k range.

For his suggestion I'm going to suggest a 1990 RX7 turbo II, MR2 turbo, or a DSM. That's pretty much it for: under $10k, turbo, newer than 1990. The Supra and 3rd gen RX7 are above $10k for a decent example usually.

ya some of what i said are hard to find under 10k but i wouldnt say impossible.
THe SRT-4 prolly wont find for that cheap but i just threw it out there.
The Supra and the Rx 7 will be the hardest to find for that price. ( and hard to find in general)
The Vr4 should be easier to find than those two. Just have to keep looking.
My friend bought a 99 GSX from and old guy with 20k miles on it. 1 Owner. mint condition for 8 grand.

GSXs are also pretty slow stock though they do have great potential.
Supras usually run WAY more than 10k.

Maybe a Corrado (supercharged) pretty slow, but the handle great are cheap to maintain and power is just a pulley swap away.

3000GT VR4/Dodge Stealth TT can also be exoensive but finding one for under 10k isnt bad. THese cars are extremely heavy though.

SRT-4 Love these cars but they are FWD and youd also be hard pressed to find one for under 10K

RX-7 Fun little car especially with an LS1 in them but these cars are the xpensive ones toi maintain especially if you drive it hard at all. They like to kill apex seals after 70K miles.

300ZX TT. Prolly my choice but as with the rest of the cars they are riddled with early 90s technology and when it break it can be hard and expensive to repair.

Have you looked into Turbo dodges. EXTREMELY CHEAP and can be mad eto run mid 12s pretty easily. The only thing is they are FWD and their ugly but for the price who cares.

Can I assume that you need a cheap stock-Turbo car to mod it later?

If so, I wouldn't go around searching for the fastest "stock", but I'd rather go after the one that can be tuned easily, cheaply, reliably and also, has potential for high level Horse Power.
The "fastest stock" might not be all these things if you are looking into modding it (I wouldn't be able to stand a stock turbo, so much potential for so little money).

he's got the 90-92 Supra (still an MK3) as an option as well though

also, didn't the 5.0 stangs come all the way up to 93 i believe? i know the 5.0's made it to the VERY early 90's....


though as far as "fastest stock" would go under $10k..... any AWD would have a big advantage, at least on the 1/4 mile. if that's the case, a Subaru would be the choice. a mid-90's STi just might go for under 10k, not in mint condition, but not in a junker-style condition either.


also, here in PR i have seen numerous mid-90 BMW M3's for under 10k. usually the owners get bored and want a newer one and want to get rid of them fast for that reason.

Wow, thats cheap....

We had a '98 (bit later than mid-nineties) M3 go for $30,000 CAD (~$26,000 USD).
