    Default Replacement for a supra?

    Hey guys,

    If you could have another car thats similar to a supra (manual, rwd, sporty), what would it be?

    I've been a toyota fan forever (2 supras, celica, corolla, 2 land cruisers), and now that I make enough money to where I can build my dream mk3, Im wondering if the headaches and time invested are worth it. I work 60 hrs a week and have 4 kiddos that I love to spend my free time with. When I see how affordable something like a camaro 1le is, Im wondering if I should just say screw it and buy a newer sports car. Of course the mk3 was my first real sports car and ill always love them.

    Anyone ever had similar thoughts, and what car did you go or want to go with?

    Off the top of my head:
    Lotus Evora
    or
    Lancia Stratos

    Though I doubt Stoschek will ever really make a new Stratos in any sort of production volume, it would be awesome if it was though.
    I rebuild / upgrade Supra Differentials - PM me for more information.

    Is big power or a sporty driving feel more important?

    A feel like a FRS/BRZ/Toyota 86 would be a great choice if massive power isn't what you're looking for. Maybe a Corvette if you're looking for more power?

    I ask myself this question all the time and end up with another supra just better than the last one!

    BMW M235i/M240i would most likely be my suggestion. Driven a few, almost bought one but decided to do the engine swap on my IS instead. Still consider it from time to time, but now that I'm a student again, I'm poor, so probably won't happen, haha.

    Both. Sporty but also has to have decent power (350-450hp). Rwd and manual a must. Nothing put a smile on my face like the rear end of my supra getting squirly coming out of a corner.

    Actually the 2 series is high on my list as well. Seems like the camaro has more value for money though. And I had thought your car was a 250 originally. How hard was the swap?

    A7mgerunner: hahaha I know what you mean!
