They're still really slow, but they can't get traction. They were literally made as like a borderline-drifter car.
The WRX is awesome for sure, but requires premium gas. The Mazdaspeed3 is great, but looks dumb now. I'd also suggest the Accord Sport. I just picked one up two days ago and *love* it.
So I just looked at the Honda website since you mentioned the Accord. I think of the cars Honda sells, I would consider the Civic Si the most interesting. That said, the Hyundai Genesis would probably make my list before the Civic. My second car was an '89 Civic, which was a great little car. But Honda's styling isn't great for me right now.
