Basically, all the cars on the market right now are good. Choose the one with the best parts support local to you, or just choose the one that you like the look of!

If you have the funds to buy a TC6 rather than a TC5R, do it, because the current models are always easier to find parts for and tend to have more up-to-date setups and advice available

If the clubs in your area race GT cars you might want to check out the Serpent S100, X-Ray X10 & CRC GX10LE chassis'. Much cheaper than Touring Cars and just as fast.

See if they run WGT (World GT) cars in your area. They are faster and less expensive, and MUCH easier to setup for onroad than typical touring cars. If not, I'd go with whatever the LOCALS are primarily using so you can get HELP with setup and parts etc. Their all pretty good--from Associated down to Hot Bodies. I"m getting out of touring cars--I can make you a great deal on a RTR or roller---let me know.
