Yeah their very hard to get hold of and being a previous owner of one, its a lot of hassle getting parts and having qualified people to work on it. I on most occasions did the jobs myself .. I think if i were to get another sports car i'd get either the suburu impreza or the mitsubishi Evo

One of my favourite subjects.

I have three. Cant pick one, as they are so different.

Daihatsu Charade GTti
FD3S RX7
Seat Ibiza TDI Cupra.

I currently own the Ibiza and Charade, and have had an RX7 in the past

Dodge Omni GLH or Buick Grand National. Throw the VW GTI 1.8t in there, too.

GNX's are bad too I have seen a few running 30+psi with a turbo as big as your giant head

Grand Nationals, GMC Typhoon, Assorted Group B Audis, Ford RS200 Group B car, Ford Cosworth Escort.

I am also liking Upgraded Turbo Diesel trucks, some are producing 1000 HP and 1000 ft/lbs of torque.

Any Porsche 911 Turbo.

The Omni GLH was wicked fast in a straight line. But when you turned the wheel.......never been more scared in my life. I forgot about the Typhoons and Cyclones. I remember Road & Track raced a Typhoon against a Ferrari back in the day. Greatest article I ever read.

2000 New Beetle Turbo, chipped and stealthy. Looks like a girly car, puts the rice rockets to shame, and doesn't garner any extra attention from Law Enforcement... It also tows our Battle Wagon(a gutted and air condtioned 14ft RV we retreat to at our local races).

Man, I LOVE the old Grand Nationals, they were LAND MISSILES! There's one that I see around town here and there, looks just like they used to, all black, and very mean!
