Best 2010+ sedan for under $20k?

Is the chevy sanic any good? Have an urge to get a 1.4 turbo and put a fart can on it
Wankel powered double wishbone Lola Karts?
>must find and crowdfund. Real WAT racing league when?
Forget the rotary: get the 250cc, inline four cylinder, DOHC four valve per cylinder engine from an early nineties Honda 250RR/MC22.
They scream to almost 20,000RPM and can make close to 50HP. It would make those littlr karts into miniature F1 cars basically.
Hear the engine here:
The answer is Honda.
Back in 1966, Honda made the RC166, a 250cc, six cylinder, DOHC, four valve per cylinder engine that also revved to almost 20,000RPM and it made 62HP.
That is 210HP per liter engine, NA, in 1966.
Can /o/ help me with a predicament?
I'm fairly certain I'm in need of a new vehicle.

So....this car gonna flop?
What does /o/ think of these cars?
I fell in love with them when I was a teen in the early 2000s, and I still love them
Hey /o/, Do you ever set car related stuff as your desktop? if you do, please post it, Pic related is mine, the masterpiece known as the BMW inline 6.
This is the image I use for my desktop.
I have a dual monitor setup so It's kind of hard finding auto-related wallpapers I like.
I had a wallpaper of some gallardos for a while but decided I didn't like it.
Here's this though
Literally the only car brand i know that fits its stereotype of socially awkward 20yr olds with no taste and a desire to fit in perfectly
Have a cry in the replies fanboys.
Worked as a Tech assistant a little while ago at a dealership.
They're decent, but for the price you pay, not really worth it.
The new Mirage is cheap as shit to a fault holy fuck. Everything about the car screams cheap once you have a look under the body.
How much pep could a peppy car have, if a peppy car could have pep?
I don't know but my stepfather got rid of his old V6 Grand Am, got a Mitsubishi RVR and said it was "Peppier" than his V6.
The RVR has a 150 hp Inline 4 with a CVT.
Needless to say I KEK'D out loud when he said that.
Finally narrowed down all my wild bullshit wants into a (relatively) shortlist, so I'm just going to sit on it and research until spring
What is /o/ up to regarding car shopping? Anyone get anything new today?

>Notchback 5.0 Foxbody

>Saab 9-5 Aero Wagon
What /o/ think
Think if trading my BRZ for a Focus ST. Found a ceritfied pre-owned 2013 with 13.7k miles and a used 2014 with 11k miles, both for just under $22k.
I like my BRZ, but its not the most practical commute car and I don't see myself modding it anytime soon.
What went wrong?
Are bikes like -pic related- any good? I want a bike thats not super gas hungry and is comfortable enough for multi hour drives
Why do you losers think a rotary engine is bad. Ok sitting here thinking and I can't see why it would be bad.
Just drive it nicely in residential areas and wind it out on freeways. Give it a chance to rev when downshifting. If you actually downshift like a real man.
im a gigantic rotaryfaggot and rotaries are shit for typical commuting duties. unless youre a masochist. just a headache t,bh
and honestly thats the only reason /o/ has to shit on it because they're all point a to point b faggots in econocars.
What kind of car would /o/ buy for a long road trip? Something you could sleep in that is also, cheap, reliable, and a comfortable ride. My guess is something like pic related. Either that or a van. Budget would be $1,500 - $2,500 and it would only need to last a month or two.

even have on CL in my area in budget
>grow up idolizing muscle cars
>hate jap shit
>one day start thinking
>there isn't anything special about the models I idolize
>if the same motor from any of my favorite cars was put into something lighter, the lighter car would win
Anybody else have an experience like that?
Yeah. Then I became an adult and realized the tuner-vs-muscle car thing is fucking retarded. Some cars are good, some are bad, some are good in certain scenarios while others are bad in the same ones and vice versa. You can like muscle cars for what they are, and appreciate tuners for what they are too.
