Default Fastest built streetable cars

So I am looking at building a very fast 9 or 8 second 1/4 car that I can still drive on the streets easy. I want full interior a/c etc all still intact. Currently I am looking at a gtr but I was wondering what other options I have, esp that are a bit cheaper. Any ideas?

You aren't going to do 9 seconds on street tires.

This. A 9 second car will never be street legal in the states.

Have you never seen GTRs? many of them run 9s on street tires or even 8s

What are you talking about there are tons of street legal cars that run 9, 8, 7, even 6 second 1/4 mile times. Just because it is legal to run doesn't mean I would want to though.

You do know that there is a difference between a street legal car and a stock car right? There are many many many street legal cars that are not stock.
