I have driven a few porches i will add that a 100k porsche does drive twice as good as a 50k porsche and a 50k porsche drives about 10x better than a fiero. When it comes to cars like anything the more you spend the better you get. I do feel that the fiero is the best bang for buck you will ever buy it doesn't make it the best car however..

It depends on your definition of exotic. Here is my list excluding my highly modded Fiero: Margay fullrace setup sprint cart[brutally quick blunt force adrenaline rush speed machine], GTS Viper, Z28 Camaros, various Corvettes and BMW's[These are the easiest cars I've ever owned to drive really really fast, and they make you look good doing it even if you can't drive], a race prepped ACR Neon[you would be surprised on how exotic a properly prepped Neon can feel at speed on a racetrack], and a retired Hendrick Motorports Sprint Cup Stock Car[speed? do you like speed? a Cup car is all about speed, how fast do you want to go? I highly recommend you try one if you get the chance]. That's my exotic list, but as you can tell I like speed

My favourite was the XJ220, close second, W8 Twin Turbo, and third Noble M12 GTO. They were more fun than any number of the Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, Porsches, Saleens, etc I've driven. Still wanting to drive an Ascari and Koenigsegg.
Ok, not technically an exotic, but expensive enough the average guy can't afford one...
(not actual picture ) BMW 650i with every gadget and option availabe. 360HP 4.8l V8 and 6speed manual trans. It was an absolute pleasure to drive. I'm still not sure why it made such a big impression on me. There was just something about it. Acceleration, cornering, steering, shifting, and stopping. Everything was spot on and very intuative. Way more fun than other faster and more expensive cars I've driven.
Still not as much fun as a V8 fiero though. The fiero is raw. I think thats its appeal. The BMW was extremely refined. Oppposite ends of the scale completely. Shortly after I drove it the owner traded it in for a Prius. I still call him every couple months to give him crap about that.

1954 Mercedes Convertible Cabriolet once owned by Marlene Dietrich. Wood paneled dash, leather seats, etc. When down, the top didn't go into the trunk and stuck up so high you couldn't see over it with the rear view mirror but Mercedes had a mirror that swiveled upward so you had rear view. This car was modeled after the one Mercedes made for Hitler but was updated. It had the Becker-Mexico radio, etc.
It belonged to my commanding officer and he wanted it moved from his quarters to our orderly room. I was the unit mail clerk and usually doing nothing so i was the "Hey You!" guy. He admonished me to not leave a scratch on the car. He showed me the title transfer info so I knew who the former owner was. Quite a thrill for an 18 year old Army private.
Unfortunately one of the great things missing from my life. The best car I ever drove was my friends 3 series BMW. Not really exotic, but nice none the less. Until my recent purchase of a Dodge Ram 1500 with a Hemi, the most exotic thing I have owned was my 2002 Ford Windstar. Yes, my life is incomplete.

well i have driven a few great cars!! i have a friend who restores vintage cars so he himself has a ton of exotics. He has yet to let me drive one of his vintage cars but tosses me the keys to his newer cars often! I also have a buddy who works with the ALMS racing series, I did a few lap both as a passenger and driver in some race cars as well.
So here is the list and i will post some pics below.
Ferrari F50 Porsche Carrera Ferrari 355 Spyder Astin Martin DB7 Ferrari Fiat Dino 2009 Porsche GT3 Le Mans Race Car Ooo it is sort of vintage!! Lancia Delta (amazing drive!!) Lamborghini Jalpa Ferrari 599 GTB Alfa Romeo GTV
Then i have my daily driver which isnt exotic my 1992 Corvette C4 and my recently sold 300zx Convertible
Mine would be a genuine 1966 427SC Cobra which I had the luxury of owning for all of 4 months. My father gave me his car as a wedding gift but it was in such poor repair I simply couldn't afford to restore it (although all numbers matched). I ended up selling it to a restorer and giving the money back to my folks, who needed it much more than I did at the time (now I wish I had either the car OR the money ). The only word that can describe the Cobra is "Brutal". Total adrenaline rush but wears you a$$ out on long hauls (plus it wears out your credit card at 8 mpg)
The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math..........
