My lightly modded 93 already corners as fast as the M3 (faster in the really tight stuff), it kind of makes me wonder...
And I still like the Evo more than the STI, if we are comparing AWD turbo cars with a lot of potential for modification.
So to counter your statement, there are alternatives out there for under $30k...
I guess it all depends if you consider a V8 miata a good daily driver , where I'm from there's a bit too much snow to pass all year long with a miata , also it's not the most practical car for summer anyway , if I was in the market for a small roadster only for summer or tracking , I'd probably put a sc on a Z or a S2000 !
