2020 best year
If you are looking for cars with good handling, I would vote Corvette before most Honda's....
My short list was C5/C6 Corvette, CTS-V, SRT-8, C55AMG, E55AMG, M3, 335i, Audi S4, ISF...And a Prius for daily driving.
Well now this accord throws everything out the window. I know it’s apples and oranges but a mid 13 second Honda product might negate the need for the “hot rod”. I’m fine with an engine build, supercharger or turbo mod etc...
I think I might be leaning towards the rocket on rails instead of the straight line monster.
I am looking over all your suggestions and look forward to more. Again I thank you all.
Please be safe out there,

The Corvette has always been more of a sports car than a pony car with its 50:50 weight distribution, so the handling is unlikely to disappoint you. C5's LS1 provides good torque and reliability, whereas the German counterparts aren't likely to be as reliable and will cost more to run. As long as you can live with the interior, which is admittedly cheap-looking before C7, it's a great value. If you like modding, the Corvette has a great aftermarket, just like Honda.
As DARKART mentioned, the only real Honda sports cars are the NSX and S2000, both of which have your typical JDM "tax" and cost way too much, and Corvette's value just blows them out of water.
As I said, you need to go out and test drive them. I am shopping cars as well and sometimes research just doesn't help you anymore; you just need to hop into the cars and find out for yourself.
