    I'm looking for my first car and I was deadset on getting a mkiii Supra Turbo (with targa, of course) but my parents are now saying that it will cost too much to insure a turbo car (even if it is under my dad's name) and are saying to find a different car. Now the 3 diferent different cars that i'm looking into are the 91+ s13s, s14s and the non-turbo supra. what would you choose and why?

    even an N/A supra will cost a dick load if you're 16.

    the s13 will probably be the cheapest.
    the s14 next, then the mr2 n/a (worthless car) then the supra N/a, then the mr2 turbo (bad ass, but costly), then the supra turbo...

    thats my guess anyway.

    there's a reason why kids get hondas... they are cheap, reliable, and don't cost a dick load to insure.

    yea...dont get a RWD turbo for a first car IMO, especially now that its snowing
    i vote civic, but if not get the S13, pretty stable for a RWD if driven sanely
    if you get a MR2 for the love of god get a 93+, rear suspension got changed to be more stable

    I should also mention that I have 3k to spend. Will it also cost a shitload even if it is under my dad's name?

    If you have 3k id reccomend finding a early 90's hatch, it will get kickass mpg, cheap insurance and you can swap it later when you have the cash.

    i thought it was the JZA70?? i dunno

    either way, the older pre 93 models do go for about that much, depending on condition/such.
    but, insurance will suck y0 :ph34r:

    like they said, aim low dude, just get something reliable and not RWD
