    I was also thinking a miata they are great all around cars and though they lack in power they tear up the corners.

    I wouldn't put a new driver in a Miata. While I personally think they're great little cars, I had a buddy who got hit head on in his Miata and he passed away on impact. Those cars offer little to no protection when it comes to wrecks.

    Should prolly be able to get a SVT Focus for around 4K.

    Although not really sporty a 1998 Jeep GC 5.9L is a pretty nice SUV and has some balls for 4K.

    Nissan 240sx. I picked my 1995 up for $2,500 and it's been very reliable. They are extremely abundant and parts are everywhere for them.

    I would definitely suggest getting an S14 (1995+) as they come with more comfortable seats and suspension.

    Very sporty and they get great MPG.

    Great cars, just a little tough to find that aren't all hacked up with big coffee can mufflers and other tasteless hack mods
