    The supra was the first of the sports cars I was around growing up. It is my dream car. and hopefully in about 3 or 4 years I'll buy one. and my plan is to get a black one to paint it BSP. targa top with the TT and 6 spd tranny.

    yeah I've been looking. on different places. but I want to get a house with a garage and I need to pay my truck off. I'm planning on getting a second job so I can buy it cash.

    Supra makes more power, NSX handles better...

    I'd go with the NSX and Supra if I had the money:top:

    You can do it all with the NSX, the Supra is a pig.

    I voted for Supra.

    Why?

    Several simple reasons.

    Engine is still being produced and parts are relatively cheap; easy to make power. A Brand new fully assembled short block is $2300 at my local Toyota Dealer, Champion Toyota in Austin
    Body does not need any kit put on; several stock bodied Supras have went 220+mph at the texas mile
    Less expensive than an NSX
    My Dream Car for the last 10years.

    Supra for me.

    The NSX is a nice car but im a power junkie and the 2Jz has what it takes. And i dont do autocross so i wouldnt take advantage of the superior handling on an NSX. I would however use the power in the supra at the track or not.

    I have mixed feelings on both.

    NSX - It handles real well and it looks exotic. And those things with cams and supercharger are a BEAST!!!!!

    Supra - Power junkie!!!! Thats all I can say. You can take a stock block up to around 700 hp with no problem at all. Parts are easy to come by and cheap.

    But I'm not a power head, I would rather looks. So I'll go with NSX


    EDIT: ADDED SOME SPECS TO THE FIRST POST

    2 very closely match rides in there stock form. But I'd choose the more rarely seen NSX.

    I couldn't find the other one, at the time, but I think its a more of an even comparison. Thats why I compared the 1998 NSX with the 1998 Supra. B/c they stop making supras in 98.
