Toyota SW20 Second Generation

Ok im 15 getting my permit soon and as soon as i get my license i want this car very badly its just pure sexy. What are the pros/cons of this car? i know it has a engine in the back if that has any advantage at all? Im a car newbie and want to learn as much as cars so i can upgrade it to whatever i want it to be. Thanks for any input.

Rain.

MR2's are alright but they're the del Sol of Toyota. Can be really quick and turn well but the engine bay is cramped. The engine in the back gives it a more neutral handling tendency. I think it was SCC that did a turbo'd supercharged MR2 a couple months ago. Pretty sick but looked like way too much money and hastle. They're a nice start but you may find for your first car it's too small.

If powerful mid engined cars interest you, Pontiac Fieros have room for a LS1 V8.

I wouldn't call them safe cars though. Insurance would also be high.

The compartment is a lot smaller to work in so you're limited. As for FC's and FD's the work will have to be done by a good shop because not many people can really work on them. They're going to be expensive as any car with a mid amount of aftermarket support.
