Miata is always the answer, right? Dead wrong! We put together this list of 7 lightweight sports cars and they’re all cheap, plentiful, have a ton of aftermarket support, and most importantly: they’re not Miatas. This is D-List!

4g63? In my Mitsu Outlander it lasteded me 90.000 miles and pinston rings gave out. Then I was looking at 80.000 Eclipse to buy... Oil in coolant. Not a good experience with Mitsu. Completely agreeing with regads to Z.

Alright, I got 3 old VW’s. All cabriolet’s (AKA rabbit’s). All convertibles. The one I’m gonna start working on is the 1989 cabriolet, which looks a lot like the VW Golf MK 2. I just wanna know: are the parts between the GTI and the cabriolet compatible? There isn’t a community for the Rabbit, but I guess there is a market for the GTI I’m hoping to hitch my wagon to.

Honda Civic should be at the top of this list. Its more versatile than any of the cars listed. It also has the largest aftermarket support from any common vendor. Thanks to Hasport (VTEC Academy), AVID, or INNOVATIVE, you can put literally any engine from any modern day Honda under the hood of a Civic; even the new Type R K20c. Theyre also much cheaper to make faster than any car on this list. Now with AWD kits available, the sky is the limit. - Sincerly a fanboy

Lol! Research fail!!! If you're going to bring up crank walk with the 4G63 you should really understand it. 1. You said it effects the 4G63 motor which obviously is true, but it's only the gen 2 7 bolt version 1. All the 1990 to 1994 1st gen dsms have a 6 bolt crank which isn't effected. So the only one you have ro worry about is the 1995 to 97 7 bolt aka 2GA. The 2GB or 98 thur 99 have a redesigned 7 bolt after Mitsu realized the issue and they now had a split thrust bearing which helped to elevate crank walk.

7th Gen had a funky oil pan design and when cornering the oil would go to the leaning side and the engine would suck in air causing the engine to blow up, there are replacement oil pans tho.

It's funny that you're so positive about the Honda civic, in Europe we also have the Renault Clio Sport, Cup, Trophy and V6 to play with as well. They are rocket ships out of the box and can easily be tuned to be insane track cars.

No RWD Volvo ? I am dissappointed. They are super cheap, reliable af, there's a ton of space in the engine bay, they come with turbos stock, rwd, they are pretty light, have no electronical bullshit and are actually a lot of fun to work on.
