    Reliability on the RX-8 is dreadful. It's a fabulous car but you don't EVER want to own one. Answer is NO!

    The Mitsubishi would be "ok" if you like it.

    qbrozen's suggestion of a Nissan 350Z is a good one, but that particular car is a bit cheap because it shows an accident on CARFAX. It was rear-ended in Tampa in 2016. But if you could find a nicer one, it's better than the Mitsu in every possible way except it'll probably have higher miles.

    It'd be great if you could keep the miles under 100K.

    Would love the 350z, but I need a back row. I am probably not going to buy either

    ah, well the back seat in the RX8 is almost nonexistent.

    These have a generous back seat:

    could go with this nice low mileage older one:
