Speedy Cars under $10,000

This lens will describe and compare faster cars under 10,000 dollars. This will give you and understanding of certain cars and how they compare to others. If you would like me to compare other cars, leave a comment stating which cars and I will do so. The first Comparison is a Mazda Rx8 and an Volkswagen GTi, both fast, fun cars to drive. I hope you enjoy!

Mazda Rx8 vs. Volkswagen GTi

People are always trying to get the best for their money. This lens is here to give you the best speed for your money. I would like to start off with the Mazda Rx8. They sell for around the 10,000 mark. This cars is a speedster. The outside looks nice and it is very fast, sporting a rotary engine with around 238 Horsepower. The Mazda Rx8 also has 156 feet of torque, helping the cars speed. The disadvantage of this car would be the fact that it has to be filled with Premium fuel, so for those of you looking for fast, cheap, cars this would be a pricey tag at the fuel pump. One more disadvantage of this car is that reliability may be an issue. The many reviews I read about this car has said that it has many problems, and if your looking for a cheap car, you would most likely want it to be reliable as well. This car receives around 18mpg, not very good for a compact car.

Another contender would be the Volkswagen GTi. This car does not looks a sleek, but it is very deceptive. The car only has 180 horsepower, but remember that this car is smaller as well. This bigger advantage is that the hatchback shape gives it good room in the back seats, much better then the Mazda Rx8. This baby also get 173 ft-lbs. of torque. Another advantage of this car is that all the reviews point out just how reliable this car is. Everyone says that this car is reliable. The downside to this car is that is foreign, meaning that if it breaks, fixing it will probably cost 3 times as much as a Mazda Rx8. The fuel economy is great as well, around 30 miles a gallon.

      Oh Phew - my dream car hasn't made it to your list yet! Porsche 944 S2 in guards red (arrest me red). My husband keeps saying it's the car he wishes we'd never sold, and then in the next breath tells me it will be less than $10K to buy soon. I really enjoyed your lens! :)

      I've driven the manual RX-8, and it's a lot of fun. Had I had money for it back then, I'd buy it. It's especially rewarding if you rev that thin up to 9K RPM. The rotary sounds fantastic!

      The GTi, however, is so heavy that the original GTi spanks it every time.

      The RX-8 may be thirsty and not as reliable, but it is the car I'd go for.
