Yeah that's really what it is, but for some reason the Starion was imported then rebadged by Chrysler as well. They are usually in crap condition but this one's very clean.

if I get a car anytime soon, I think I want to get a subaru BRZ or a WRX, and do a bunch of performance mods and stuff.

if I was just going to run a stock car Id probably go with a mustang.

Yeah no one's really ever heard of them that I know of. I only know what it is because I saw one (a Conquest) in a local (not my) high school parking lot a couple of years ago and it caught my eye, so I looked it up and came to like them.

---------------------------

The FR-S and BRZ are really cool because it's the closest thing we have right now to the low-cost Japanese sports cars of the 80's and 90's. If I was going for a *new* car I would probably get one of those.

Otherwise I like the Nissan S13 hatchbacks, MkII Supra's, and of course the Starion.

the BRZ needs a turbo V6 for it to 1990s Japanese Sports car justice (supra, Skyline, NSX, etc)

Well that's why I said *low cost*, because you just can't compare a car like that to the Jap "hot rods", especially the Skyline and NSX. Toyota have built the FR-S/BRZ with a homage to the Corolla AE86 in mind.

It's supposed to be a modern day representation of all the cars that people take and turn into POS drift machines.
