Prioritized list:
1 - Will mostly retain its value over a 12 month period
2 - $30k-$60k purchase price
3 - Lots of HP
4 - Good in the corners, but don't need a track star
5 - AWD/0-60 < 4 seconds
6 - High quality interior/good tech

Open to tastefully modified cars on reliable platforms. I like forced induction.

V8 R8, maybe a tesla depending on your def of good, any panamera with a v8 that's already in that range, audi s5 sportback, e63/c63. you should probably at least include how many doors you want

great car, but I find the DCT in the s7 makes for a better package than the added power of the RS7

I will probably try to stay with VAG meaning Audi at this point so good to know.

^ It has been on sale for 9 years... I guess you are not a car person?

Heard of the Toyota 86 (or Toyota GT86)? Same car underneath, different body. Jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru.

Scroll down to Versions:

^^ its a very pure sports car. if you have a place to beat on it, it's a lot of fun with fairly low limits so you won't kill yourself as a novice. don't expect power to be the draw though

The limits can become pretty high with basic suspension mods and wheels/tires (the stock tires suck.) I basically never lose ground in the corners on track—I just get stomped on the straights.

Power will never be more than adequate unless you go forced induction, which I wouldn’t bother with.

Pre-2017 stability control is way too intrusive.
