I vote for a VW TDI, especially if you get back into autocross. A fellow this last weekend had a Jetta TDI that had been chipped. He says it has about 300ft.lbs of torque and it drove like it, he was hampered by wrong wheel drive but still put up good times. He shifted to 2nd gear about 30 feet from the startbox and still could spin the tires in second. I think its nearly the perfect drivetrain for autoX and an old 911 must be with the best for an autoX chassis. Would make for a fun project, 50mpg and takes FTD!.
