Porsche. Great looking car and very reliable. I love the feel of p-cars and the way they handle. And also, the 996 turbo is very easy to modify.

ZO6 .. You can pick up a very lightly used 08 or 09 in 50's, low 60's right now. For that price you cant touch its performance or looks. And with a set of HRE'S it looks plain EVIL.

I would take the Porsche. Honestly though, you should narrow the list down and have people pick from it. By listing "others" as an option, the list is going to get very long because there are a boat load of cars that you can get.

man that is really, really tough...

at my age, i'm taking the sportiest car available though. 996 turbo for me. Maintenance will probably be terrible, but i'm willing to deal with it for that car. It's not so much that it's a Porsche that I want it. It's that I love turbo cars in general and that has to be one of the grand daddies of all turbo cars (although the GT-R is the new king imo). I love 911's in general for their 'wolf in sheep's clothing' look. If the M3 were less aggressive looking, I'd have an even harder time passing on it though.

but then again, if i had all that money, i'd buy an STI and turn it into my track car
gas: pretty terrible
mods : LONG LONG list
maintenance : um... depends on how you mod lol
cop attention : huge
what others will think of you : ricer
what others might also think : boy racer

C6 ZO6, you can get one with crap for miles for $40-50k. It is a MUCH more reliable/less finicky car to deal with than the others and well, it's faster.

I don't know if I'd consider the maintenance on either the M5 or M6 "easy".
Are you planning to do everything yourself?

All those cars are going to be significantly more to repair/maintain then something like a zO6.

With today's economy, I've seen 996 GT2s in the range of an e92 M3's MSRP. So, I would pick that

There are a couple on eBay Motors for $73K, $77K, $79K, and $83K with most of them modded heavily. Those are still kinda high compared to what I've seen before tho.

I respectfully disagree. The M5 is much better with the SMGIII than 6MT.
