300zx twin turbo. Don't get a 90 or 96, those years have problems, but 91-95 are fine. The twin turbo is a 2 seater and capable of making some big power. The N/A 300zx is a 2+2 and still pretty nice but a bit longer.

you should go with either the rx-7, 300zx or the supra. dont get a hatch and turbo it, that's what you call ultimate rice, and i dont think it'd look good with your friends' rides either. Two of my friends have 300zx's one's over 400hp, and the other a few hp shy of 400 also, and lemme tell you it's a dang fast car. My friend with the lesser hp zx is gona sell his zx TT, get a 2+2 zx build up the motor and then turbo it, cuz he's gona be doing all the labor himself. another friend of mine has the old school rx-7 the FC, it's a sweet car to consider too if you dont mind it being an old car. you can go with the FD rx-7 also but it being rotory it might be a pain to maintain. and dont even consider a supra if it's not a turbo model, cuz it's dang slow cuz the body is really heavy. well that's just my 2 cents for you.

The RX-7 is a "lift back." I personally don't think you should get an RX-7 unless it's a naturally aspirated FC3S. RX-7's are not "beginner friendly." Especially when boosted. They are a blast to drive, but are unforgiving at the limit. These cars are extremely finicky, and unless you have a large wallet, extensive tool box, and experience with rotaries, you better stay away. If you don't know how to tune, stay away. If you do anything, I mean anything to the car, even something as insignificant as exhaust or intake, you will need to retune the car. It's a very delicate balance and one minor mistake and you'll detonate, and need new seals or a rebuild.

The FD3S and even turbo II FC3S are not beginner cars, or toy cars either. RX-8 or NA FC3S are pretty much trouble free as long as you understand that rotaries consume oil by design.

You also sound like someone who wants this car for the "image" or to "keep up with the jones'." You mention what all your "friends" drive. If that's the case stay away from rotaries. They require a certain type of driver willing to do the special care.

If you must, get an NA model, but I agree with the 240SX idea. Drop in a SR20DET and have a virtually trouble free, fast, RWD car.

The NOOKIEMONSTER has spoken.

What the hell are you talking about? All RX-7's are rotaries. The suggestion of an FC3S, and then saying FD3S is a "pain because of rotary" is probably the stupidest thing I've read on here all day.

Maybe you should say the FD3S is a pain to maintain due to the rat's nest sequential twin turbo setup. Or maybe you should mention the overheating problems the FD3S has.

BTW you can remedy these problems with a 99+ FD3S larger radiator and oil coolers, along with a simplified ball bearing, quick spooling, single turbo setup. Alot of guys use a single ball bearing T3/T4.
