-It's my daily driver all year (Including winter) so if I'm paying big $ again, it will have to take over DD duties. Does not have to be 4 doors either.
-I know nothing else is going to be at this HP level so that's not a requirement. However, it has to be fast. That means I likely would not be happy with anything slower than mid 12s or so,
-If it's new, it will be lease only. It's extremely rare for me to keep cars long enough for it to make sense to buy new. That leads to the next point if new...HC lease is $679 per mo so same or less money. Zero down again as well.
-My search can include used cars, but at a max of the same price point as my HC buy price which is $44k.

Any ideas or suggestions on what cars I should consider?
It would help to have more information about your usage and desires. You want fast but is that instant torque or highway passing or both? Do you care about MPG? Wil your neighbors complain if you start it up in the AM and its loud? What about interior? What about info system (if you care)? etc. What is your maximum cost (use purchase cost although you may be leasing but purchase price will make it easier to compare). The more information you give us about your desires and usage, the better we can assist you.
