The options are to either buckle up for an absurdly expensive Porsche or opt for an M2, Supra, or Mustang GT.

The Macan S is somewhat reasonably priced and is a hoot to drive, better than most "sport" sedans honestly, but you'd have to put up with owning a crossover. I like sitting low and knowing the dimensions of my car.
If only BMW made a 2 series gran coupe (I mean a real 2 series, not the misleading fwd focused one).

That was my biggest wish. A true 4-Door 2-Series. I could do with the lower interior quality and lack of luxuries from the 3er. I just wanted a RWD-Based sedan the size of the E46 and handling characteristics of the F22 2-Series, available with a manual of course
