If you can live with auto transmission get a G37X. They do make a RWD Manual G37 (not with X) but those are rare to see on the market.

Sports Sedan with almost all of the sports you probably need for a daily car.

It does not break down, it's a very reliable car. There are plenty on the market with low mileage and it's a Mazda so it's not gonna cost you much to maintain it. I don't wanna sound prejudiced or anything but every other car that has been suggested in this thread is inferior to a 93 RX-7. It lacks a bit in driving comfort though, if you value comfort too much since you want it for daily use you could go for an RX-8 it does not give you the mid-range torque RX-7 has but the drive is much more comfortable.

Skyline, Supra...out of budget.

Evo/Impreza... I've never driven but should put on my list.

RX8/S2000...probably won't have the torque I'm craving if the 350z didn't.



I LOVE 300zx TTs and other turbo 90s cars, but I just need a daily driver. I pretty much plan on leaving the car stockish (maybe help out the breathing, but that's it).

So I really need that torque from the get go, and I need it to be a daily driver.


My next cars to drive will be M3, GTO(boat), Vette ( ), and another 07ish 350z.

The e46 m3 is a completely different feel from the 335i. I had the m3 and loved it, drove my brothers 335i, it's nice but it's more of a luxury car. The m3 is the best car you'll get for that money, but maintenance is expensive on the m3.

Some do, but this one didn't come with one and i just kept it like that, it does have a smoother look to it.

I dont know if you like suburu's but a WRX would seem like everything you need, AWD for the snow, good on gas, and can be a daily driver and packs some HP.

Audi S4 is a better option. Don't bother getting an Asian "sports car". The only sports cars from asia are the GTR and Lexus F series . Germany makes the best sports cars

I have an A8, i agree with Germany making the best sports car, but you will have to find a good deal or settle with a top of the line car under 20k, especially with maintenance.

Oh definetly, your 350 z looks nice regardless. I've just seen some with spoilers and I just fell more in love with them.
