Maybe if you're only comparing 90's cars, but I honestly don't think even then. I owned a '06 GTi fir three years and there's no way the integra was funner than that. And my GTi wasn't even at the top of the fwd totem pole, then or now.

Sold it for a 350z for that rwd

Nice thumbnail OP.

And yes, FWD is terminally gay.

Here is the sickest FWD car ever made. 8 accidents, headers and exhaust fully rusted out, metal on metal brakes and a spray painted garbage can lid jammed into a rusted out quarter panel.

But it never failed to run.

to be fair, the new ones dont handle as bad as the old ones do, something about the front diff clears up the understeer and torque steer

seen a couple cheap ones online, but they dont seem to sell, good power for a 3l turbo?

>>721417618
Sorry I meant I like the way they handle, sure you can't feed it mid corner but such is the nature of FWD and horsepower, in terms of sheer cornering grip they were impressive as fuck.

Driving a solid fwd car fast is a nice feeling, better than driving a rwd because you can really feel the limit without driving like a dickhead

You can get a decent 951 (944 Turbo) for ~$12-15K now. About as fast as the contemporary 911 of the day, but easily made faster with a $300 chip and shim. Handled way better too. 400HP on a 2,800 lb. car is fun.

Like all Porsches it was built like a tank and they rarely break. But when they do repair cost is insane.
>>
>>721418082
up to 250hp for a a 3l turbo, thats not great, but its not horrible i guess

944 Turbos had 225 to 250 from the factory.

Getting 350+ HP out of these motors was/is trivial and fairly reliable. Which is why everyone did just that back - so most of these cars are tired now.

But the handling of these cars is truly epic.

If it is a 944 TURBO, then it has tons of potential. Fix up the motor to 400HP. Put in a 'vette motor (not all that hard and may be lighter).

But a cheap Porsche is going to be expensive unless you're a wrench wizard and have access to parts.

This is a bit of a weird one, the Alfasud Sprint.

I've raced with two of these which compete regularly in my state, they comfortably stay with 240/260/280z's, Alfa GTV 6's, Alfa 105 1750/2000s, Escorts and 70's 911's and even some of the bigger V8 stuff. They're outclassed in grunt terms by all of these but the cornering speed they hold is incredible.

>>721419977
id imagine that the low weight plus some sticky tyres helps

>>721420028
New Zealand, id probably be able to build a 600hp skyline and get the 944 turbo for cheaper than just buying a vette motor
>>
>>721420112
Low weight and low centre of gravity but all the cars that compete are running R spec Yokos, they're all fairly highly developed, including the Sprints. I just find it interesting because people get excited about Coopers but these two Sprints leave all the Mini's for dead and run in a higher class.

Not sure where you are, but there are kits put pretty much any small block Chevy in a 944T (951 to Porsche people - it's the internal code number for the car).

It's the weird shit that will drive you bankrupt: replacing the torque tube; 2-pole air-conditioner switch that requires a complete dashboard PC board; that weird power window travel switch; that brittle radiator overflow tank.

All that said, a great project car. Elbow-grease equity potential is excellent.

The best value in Porsches today is an early 997 911 Carrera (2005~2009). Relatively cheap at the moment and built like a Panther tank.

Porsche makes Mercedes build quality look pathetic - I've owned multiple examples of both makes.

Ohh good choice anon, I remember reading when they were released they were one of the quickest accelerating cars in gear, around.

Another oddball one.

Ran on pump fuel and could match any sedan of it's price bracket pretty comfortably, seen plenty of stock ones run a 14.5s 1/4. Had LSD too which was uncommon in FWD at the time and wasn't too shabby in the twisties.

Mercedes build quality is pretty pathetic these days, I work on the fucking things regularly, never had the luck to touch a Porsche though.

Like you stupid shit could explain the dynamics behind that. If you could you'd know that it's bullshit. Unless you drive a 400 PS race car on an actually racing track. And especially in 70 mph max 'murrica you can stick that RWD up your ass.
>>
>>721422527
Heh, I've actually been in one of those when I was younger, it was a company car where my old man worked, guy gave it to them when he didn't want to repair it, it was generally called the skittle(Like an M&M)

Even with the turbo it wasn't exactly a fireball.

>>721421509
here in NZ those galant and legnums are "nigger cars". same with subaru forrester and honda odyssey. most are cheap and trashed, only driven by maori and polys.

I have this 335i 'vert at the moment. Very nicely made if not MB or Porsche quality. The retractable top is a marvel.

But the engine. Rated 300HP, probably closer to 350 in reality. Runs like a sewing machine. Smooth as fuck. ~5 second zero to 60. AND FUCKING THROTTLE TIP-IN LAG KILLS THE CAR.

Whoever designed the throttle on this car deserves a gruesome, painful and slow death. It truly is that bad.

what if i want to drift on the road? thats why rwd is best.

Not the same car though, the Magna is a fair bit bigger than the Galant, different engines etc and yes the Magna always was cheap, cheap to buy, cheap to run.

My 911 is many orders of magnitude more fun than the 335. The 911 scalpel...the BMW is a dull butter knife that makes me want to vomit.

drifting is so easy with a fwd, you can do it without even trying

>>721422042
about Mitsu:
i know, it's one of those riced out factory cars, same as trd celica. To me even the evo VI looks classier and clean compared to this: those front bumper and sideskirts...

about Merc:
Most of their sales are models quoted above
yeah, to get some good things you have to chosse top tier models. Nowadays merc are built and sold to wannabe parvenue. They only need a tri-star to show off, so merc don't have the need to make (and waste money on) good materials nor deal to much with build quality.

I love the feel, one foot on the gas the other on the clutch,never having to touch the brake, hand moving qruickly from the gear shifter to the e-brake. I use to race an old 80s Z-24 on the back streets then at the local track, I miss that car.

Fwd is epic in a good chassis like the dc2 ek9 ch1 . I do track days in my ATR and it is miles faster than rwd with the same power . At the end of the day it really doesn't matter. The only people who make a fuss are wannabe drifters or forza fags

NA.

I drove a supercharged MR2 for a while but it wheezed and popped so much that I was thankful to get back to a normally aspirated machine.

Come to think of it, NA is always better than blown. Unless you want to tune and have your car blow up in a year.

I'm old and have owned a lot of fast cars and have driven a lot more fast cars that my buddies owned. Porches, Mercs, BMW M-cars, all manner of Jap cars, 700hp nitrous ricers, fast bikes and a few Ferraris (never owned a Ferrari though).

The absolute most fun car for the money is the Miata. Hands down. Not even close. Faggots who call them pussy cars don't know how to drive for fun.

Funny you mention FIAT, manufacturers of one of the strongest 4 cylinders around, if you get a chance have a look inside a FIAT twin cam, then compare it to something like a 4age or an EJ20.

That's clever isn't it, let's compare a swiss to a casio

The 4age is a copy of the Ford BDA and yes the FIAT twin cam is inherently stronger, I've worked on both and have raced with a FIAT twin cam and against 4age's(and numerous other 4cylinders) for years.

>Reading comprehension - the post

As I said earlier, I've never touched a Porsche, or operated one, although I have raced against a few 911's and 356's, so I wouldn't know what they were like for reliability. I just found the thought of comparing a budget manufacturer to a generally high end manufacturer pretty amusing.
