Ford Fiesta ST

While it's sad Ford won't be bringing the Fiesta ST back for a new generation, it's still nice to celebrate the old one. It's still one of the most fun new cars you can buy today at any price, and frequently ranks near the top of its class in SCCA Solo Nationals.

<p>It's been a while since <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/car-comparison-tests/reviews/a19280/best-all-around-sports-car-honda-s2000/" target="_blank">Honda sold the S2000</a>, but its agility and high-revving engine still make it a great car to buy used. They aren't dirt cheap yet, and probably won't ever be, but <a href="http://www.ebay.com/sch/Cars-Trucks/6001/i.html?_sop=7&_udhi=12%2C000&_mPrRngCbx=1&_stpos=02121&_from=R40&_nkw=honda%20s2000&_dcat=6253&rt=nc&_udlo" target="_blank">if you have $10,000 or so</a>, you can easily find a fairly clean example. Just don't blame us when you end up addicted to revving that engine all the way to redline.</p>

The Honda S2000 makes for a great Miata alternative thanks to its fantastic agility around tight corners. And unlike the Miata, the S2000 actually has some power under the hood, making it a serious contender at autocross events everywhere.

Honda Civic Si

The Civic Si may have grown in size over the years, but it still makes for a solid autocrossing machine. A standard LSD—something most other cars in its class don't have—means you'll have more grip coming out of slow corners.
