Have you considered RScheme from Paul Wilson's OOPS group at Texas?

They are just starting to address performance issues, but you'd be
taking advantage of their continuing efforts. They already have the
continuations and the transparent persistence. Most likely they have
better performance than ZetaBase for day-to-day Lisp programming.

They have reasonable performance by generating and dynamically loading
C. I don't doubt they know how to improve their performance.
