    Which do you guys believe is the best all around car? Consider price, handling, 1/4 mile, looks, dependibility.


    Overall, I feel the (1993-1998) Toyota Supra Twin-Turbo is the best vehicle it's smooth and reliable drivetrain, engine responds very well to simple mods, 4-seater practicality, great apex carving ability.

    I like the FD, but I am a little Biased.

    The Supra tends to feel a little heavy to me.

    the corvette.
    the RX-7 is too unreliable
    the supra is too heavy
    the 300ZX is too unreliable and heavy
    the NSX is underpowered and has a pretty weak motor compared to the others
    the Viper is too expensive

    the Corvette has the world's most proven motor (small block Chevy), an awesome transmission (tremec t-56 I believe), great aerodynamics, a perfect curb weight, and a great price tag.

    Z-06 but the regular C5 has poor road manners it is more then a handleful on bumpy surfaces. The RX7 isn't unreliable!!! You just have to keep replacing the engine

    depends on generations, trim levels, budget, etc.

    if we are talking near stock with minor bolt-ons and unlimited budget for the car...

    viper
    supra
    vette (only if its a zo6)
    FD
    NSX
    300ZX

    Since you added dependability as well:

    (1) NSX
    (2) Supra TT

    What yr ??

    If .. same model year .. then for sure NSX .. but .. it is like 3 times more money then other cars !

    If you talk about stock car to stock car ... for any yr .. then still .. NSX is still the best ...

    For value .. corvette is the best one .. $75K .. ( new one ) can out run the $150K NSX .. and $130K Porsche 911

    For those 3 asian cars you mention, I like the RX-7 most ! but .. it got tons of problem .... Supra is the fastest one and the most reliable one .but most pricy too ! ( still, some people ask ~$30K for one ! )




    The Original !

    my preference is the nsx.

    -reliable
    -handles great
    -not as bad on gas
    -lots of potential to be faster

    supra. Supra. SUPRA. SUPRA! haha vipers are shit. Worse then the NSX. For the price of the Viper, you could get a 1000 rhp Supra. For the price of the NSX, you could get a Super fast 300ZX, changing the engine into a SR20DETT or some shit like that. face it no one likes the viperm that's why they always get hunted.

    We need to know what Year? I mean a new vette or Viper are way more expensive than a Supra, RX7 or 300zx.

    Not really comparing apples to apples.

    In a straight line yes. It isn't the best all around car of the group though.

    except for reliability, the best overall sports car is the rx7 period.
    it's been proven time and time again.

    NSX. It is the Ferrari designed by people who went to college. Unbelievable handling, great balance, dead reliable.

    On the downside it is very expensive and modifications are unbelievably expensive.

    As to the underpowered comments.. I think the numbers make it seem that way, but I always thought they were fast as hell. Seat of the pants dyno is the way I look at power instead of what shows on paper. It would be an unbelievable supercar if it had 400+ hp (the supercharged NSXes out there are unreal) but I think stock is just fine.

    NSX are reliable , but for the price they are just to damn slow.
    Supra is wayyy to heavy
    Corv is probably #1
    Viper is super fast , but you are paying for it.
    FD awesome car , but with 20b Engine in , would kick some serious ass.

    You want to swap out the VG30DETT in the 300zx for an SR20DETT? And I dont know why theres an extra "T" in that engine code.

    Handling wise, the Viper SRT-10 and the Comp Coupe will keep up with anything in the list (for the GTS and RT/10 are pretty good too but their braking/skid pad numbers aren't quite as good). Looks wise I think its better than anything else in the list and the engine is very reliable (better than most rating from JD Power) - the only thing it falls short on is price, but you picked the NSX as one of your choices which costs even more and can't touch it in any category except dependability which would be a close call and looks which is subjective.

    PS I pick Viper
