    good looking, but nothing more than a commuter car.

    Small engine + supercharger != Fast car.

    Too much parasitic drag. Why do you think all the Euros use turbochargers? It sure as hell isn't for simplicity's sake.

    I think I read on some tC forums that even with a s/c or t/c they only hit 13's tops.. thats with a lot of other stuff done to them too.

    you're a fucking douchebag. Lotus uses a 1.8L supercharged engine in their elise. It's fast.

    The scion is also heavy.

    I'm surprised the thread starter says it's slow. The stock one feels capable to me.
