    Motortrend did a test in the 94 with just about every sports car under 100k. The Supra took 1st all around, FD took anything handling, the viper everything with acceleration.

    Out of all those cars, the Supra would have been my only choice..

    the others were either too hard to work on, or difficult to maintain.

    well you would have to say

    RX-7
    Supra TT
    300zx TT
    3000 GT VR4

    then you have a little more choosing. They were retailing around 38-45k when they came out back then nobody had the money to throw away in cars like they do now.

    The SupraTT and 3000GT VR-4 had 320hp. The 300ZXTT had 300hp. The RX-7 had 255hp (I forget the stock hp for this one)?

    Supra is the best one stock, only cause it's pretty much indestructable. Personally I'd go for the FD myself.

    Performance numbers don't lie. Supra beat all of them in every category. If I was buying a car in the mid-late nineties and could afford one, I would've bought a supra. Next choice would've been RX7.
