I'm getting confused though... Are we talking about sports cars or sporty looking cars? Cause a tiburon has sleek lines ;) or as a lady friend of mine once said, a Ferrari with a better price tag


Mostly sports cars (e.g. 300zx, corvette, Mitsu 3000gt) and to a lesser extent sporty-looking cars with at least some degree of sporting abilities (like the 240sx or BRZ)


In my mind, the BRZ is more of a pure sports car than the 3000GT could ever dream of being.

In fact, I think it defines inexpensive sports car.

How expensive was the 300zx compared to the Z3 3.0?


I don't know about the models themselves, but one website I found indicated that the Z3 ranged from $29-$42k, and the 300z from $30-$40k at the time.

I looovveee the BRZ. I just wish it had a bit more power. Just a tad, it doesn't need to be a 350 HP beast, but 200 HP, while decent, is less than what say, an accord produces. The thing is made to handle though, and that rocks.

Gotcha. I wasn't expecting that!

Jeez, I didn't realize Z32's were so expensive. That's a lot of money for the 1990's.
