So, as the title states. I'm looking for potential summer cars.   Ive had my eyes set on a few different cars, so here are the options.

Mitsubishi Ralliart Lancer (2.0 Turbo SST)
Lexus IS series (unsure of year, or model.  Currently open to 4 door sedan's, preferably something a bit newer
Subaru WRX STI (Must be hatchback, low KM, full service history)
Toyota Aristo
Acura TSX
Open to RHD imports.

I would be open to other cars, but must meet the criteria of a 4 door sedan, or hatchback.   Would prefer AWD as an option, but for the right price/ trim package i would also consider a 2wd option.

What's all out there folks, this fall i'll be posting up the mazda for sale.

      Why ralliart? Why not Evo? Or older Evo?

        Just my assumption but evos might be holding their value a bit better than the ralliart especially with them not being made anymore.
        Could be for budgetary reasons. Ralliarts also can be made much faster than a stock evo for less than the price of an evo. Also smaller turbo so faster acceleration off the light better in real world applications

          Good questions all around

          Budget is dependant on how much i sell the mazda for.   Id be looking at spending an extra 15 thousand on top of what i make from the mazda.     My reasoning for the Ralliart was because its a little bit cheaper than the EVO, and still capable of a lot of modifcations.   This would strictly be a 10Th generation, Any previous generation would be too small. 

          I'm also going to update the list of cars, there's a few others that peak my interest.   

          My reasoning for these vehicles, they are a bit bigger and can handle more than one passenger.   Even in the mazda, the back seats are so cramped with more people that its tough to bring anyone along.  The Aristo has lots of back seat room, along with trunk space.

                      The body style of the STI appeals to me more.  the WRX just doesn't cut it IMO.

                        The body style of the 2011-2014 wrx and sti hatchback is the exact same.
