    the subaru wrx now looks quite crappy, loosk similar to a sedan oni.

    i'd like something low profile, something flat and close to the ground...

    would check out the hyundai coupe...

    I think you would be quite disappointed with the performance of the Tuscani. I test drove before. Looks nice only but performance is very very sadly lacking for it's looks.

    The Hyundai has quite a decent chassis, but lacks grunt and any presence. I suppose you purpose for driving a SPORT CAR is for the image ? since your requirements clearly didnt state any priorities for real performance.

    There is stigma for hyundais here in Singapore, which is a pity really, because the latest coupe does pack some quality and drives well.

    If u can afford a WRX, go for it! It looks like a sedan, sure, but anyone who knows cars , (even ahlians) would know its a killer fast car. It drives superb, and has power to probably keep anyone one at the lights away from you. SUre it looks good, if you are tasteful with add ons.

    I must recommend the Mazda MX5 though. 2 seater, good looks, very good handling. 6 speed transmission. Plus , its a cabriolet.

    Why not get a second-hand Toyota MR2?

    The 5th gen celicas are beautiful, but I think they're a bit expensive for what you get. MX-5 is a nice car too, but last I saw they were awfully pricey.

    well yes the purpose is the image purpose. performance is also good to have, but for now i'm looking at looks first, performance test drive happy then get.

    btw no convertibles, i like a low profile hard roof sports car :P

    the Honda Integra brand new at Kah Motor going for $90K--not bad price/performance.
    The MX5 is a good one too--but its a roadster not a cab.
