    According to Road and Track:

    2004 Mazda RX-8
    Braking:
    60–0 mph -- 114 ft
    80–0 mph -- 202 ft

    2004 Porsche 911 GT3
    Braking:
    60–0 mph -- 119 ft
    80–0 mph -- 207 ft

    ... and nearly as good as the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. Not bad for a car most people hate on. :eek:

    When the 93 RX-7 came out it was within 1 foot of being the shortest stopping production car Road and Track had ever tested.

    The car that beat it was some Porche limited edition car that they only made 200 of.

    i test drove one and was less than impressed. it is in desperate need of more power, though the handeling seemed nice enough, i didn't get a chance to push it.

    didn't like the interior at all

    3,000 lbs is light? You make it sound like a Lotus or something.
     
  8. They need to just fucking make a 3-rotor renesis. If they get 238hp out of 2 rotors, they'd get 350 out of 3 on the same tune. That would give it more than enough power.

    BUT NOOOOOOOOO

    Straight line, I agree it really isn't all that fast when compared to some other cars in it's class.

    It handles itself quite well on a track though. :big grin:

    I somehow miss the back seat. Also the MR2's snap oversteer handling can eat my nuts too.

    Yeah, but they added good looks, a nice interior, 4 doors and a better suspension.

    But on the same note they lost the V6, shitty plastic interior and ugly body.
