New Car suggestions?

So my trusty Contour SVT might be on its way out as I need some AC work done as well as new brakes all around and depending on how much the AC work costs it might not be worth it to fix...thus I might be in the market for a new car but don't know what would meet my critera...

basically I would want something alot like my CSVT thus....

1. Has to be a four door, not too big but not tiny either
2. Has to have a manual, preferably a five speed
3. Must have at least 200HP preferably more
4. Needs to corner well or very well stock
5. Preferably something sporty looking with at least 16" alloys, would rather 17"s though.
6. Budget would be under 28K but less is always better
7. Would like another 6cyl if possible
8. Auto Sunroof option would be nice

I really cannot think of anything off the top of my head thus opinions appreciated.
