The ten quickest cars under $30,000S

You don't need to spend Porsche prices to get a new car with a bit of pep. Forbes worked with Edmunds to put together this list of the ten quickest new cars for under $30,000.

Some, like the Ford Mustang GT and Subaru WRX, are pretty obvious — but who knew the Honda Accord coupe with a manual was a tenth of a second faster than the Mazdaspeed3? Let's find out what other "cheap" cars made Edmunds' 0-to-60 cut.

1.) Ford Mustang GT
0-60: 4.8 seconds
Price: $29,145

2.) Subaru Impreza WRX
0-60: 5.2 seconds
Price: $25,495

3.) Ford Mustang V6
0-60: 5.6 seconds
Price: $22,145

4.) Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart
0-60: 5.8 seconds

5.) Hyundai Genesis 3.8 R-Spec Coupe

**Yes, we know the Camaro V6 should be on this list — but we didn't create it. By our numbers, it should slot in right below the Genesis R-Spec Coupe. Go bitch at Edmunds and Forbes for not including it.**
