Help on my first CAR

I'm selling my Jeep (anyone want a great first car for their kid?) and I want something with a little umph. . .

Ever since I have gotten into any kind of sports car, all I have been wanting is an MK3 supra turbo. I think the car is perfect in every way, but also I've kind of started looking at MK2 MR2 turbos. Anyone who knows anything about these 2 choices - throw in your 2 cents about which is a better choice and why . . .

Re: Help on my first CAR

i think the MR2 is a better track car but the supra would be a better straight liner....

Yea the MkIII Supra Turbo is a pig. It's super heavy.

The 2nd Gen MR2 is light, fast, reliable, strong motor, and nimble. Go for it.

Its all about if you want a sports car with some more practicality plus a larger engine and probably cheaper.

Or one that is almost or what some may consider virtually a no holds bar sports car with no extra seating aside from two and barely boot to match. But it is a mid-engined sports with great handling and is lighter in weight so it is a faster than an MKIII Supra.

Re: Help on my first CAR

Thanks everyone, it seems you are swaying my decision.

I looked a little more at the mr2s, and it seems that the turbos are a little too much dough. Do you think i could find one under 7 grand with a turbo?

If not, how much am I really sacraficing, will i regret not getting a turbo for the rest of the time i own the car? I could look up the horsepower difference, but if someone knows, let ME know

Thanks again

the mr2 would probably be sportier, and the supra would probably be the safer choice... the mr2 has a tendancy to snap overstear due to its mid engine.. this isnt a negative or positive... it just a characteristic of the car, just like many porsches... if it is your first car, it just might be a little dangerous until you get used to it, so if you do get it, try take it a little easy on the turns the first couple weeks... also, i would probably recamend a 93 since the suspention was upgraded to have less tendancy to overstear... some people like the 91-92 suspention better, but the 93 is probably safer... maybe you should test drive to see which you like more...

either choice is a nice car but just my on the mr2
