MR2's are kinda rare. I would suggest the S2000 or Miata for a compact/sporty track/daily. Those two would be perfect. :)

I like MR2s but I've only ever seen one for sale here. Nearly bought it but I didn't have enough money.

RSX Type S or Toyota Celica GTS (these might be just out of budget though), S2000s fall right in the same league as the latter two. MR2 is something I don't normally think to mention though it's kinda older now. (Though an MR setup would be pretty sweet)

 

Honda Insight first gen (70MPG ftw lol)

I've also realized that for this amount of money, I can get an insane motorcycle. Thoughts/opinions? 0-60 in 2.XX seconds plzkthxbai.

My opinion is you shouldn't get a motorcycle. At least not one anywhere near or over 600cc.

While I wouldn't say don't get a motorcycle, I agree with ekiM. Have you ever ridden before?

+1 Stick to four wheels because if you've never ridden a bike, you'd kill yourself or have a fall that'd put you in a wheelchair.. trust me I've seen it happen to friends.

 

I say S2000 my last opinion. That car fits perfect in your category of a track/daily driver.

I've ridden before, but it's been a while. Used to ride my dad's bike in France, I forget what it was though. It's an older Yamaha, but it was pretty quick. Nowadays, I just ride around on a 150 cc scooter to get chores done. I love the scooter because it's really slow, but it feels like you're going so much faster, it's a lot of fun.

 

How are the power gains on the S2000 once I start working on it? It's got a good amount of horsepower, but only 160-something torque and it's all the way up at 6800 rpm. I'm used to low-down torque. In the GTI, I've got peak torque from 1700 rpm all the way to like 4800.

+1, especially if you go all out money-wise and get something too powerful like a Yamaha R1 or Suzuki Hayabusa because you will kill yourself if you dont respect it
