If you want high performance with a raw edge to it the Clio is great, its nothing special to look at or that comfortable but its a great drive.
For a car similar to the GT the Fiat Coupe Plus/LE gets the thumbs up from me too, stock it is a bit compromised in the handling stakes more like a hot saloon but the car has bags of character and its failings are easily/cheaply resolved, its easily above the other Coupes you have mentioned. Oil usage isn't that bad a litre per 1000miles, another Coupe that is good is the integra Type R, if you can push the boat out for a DC5 you'll be pretty happy especially if you like to spank your car on a daily basis the VTEC laps it up, good chassis set up too, another consideration is a 200sx, dull as anything to look at but a lot of fun could be had.
Sportka/Smart Roadster, forget it, the KA actually drives really well but when you've got out of you car and look back at it in the car park are you really going to feel proud to own it, the Smart roadster is pathetic, BTW driven these with the missus, never a consideration for me, thought I'd better get that in
Puma Racing is pretty good.
