APPLES and OTHERS.....
thanks for bringing this topic up
....I have also been looking into buying a track car......as far as BMW......I personally like the E30 M3, even thought about possible getting an E34 M5/535. (the E36 M3 looks a bit dated to me...no offense to anyone that owns this car!).
...you are either a corvette fan or not.....I am not. But think the recent incarnation of this car has proven itself on the track.
As far as the Rx7 :
I can tell you from my experience that YupKwondo is right on the money
....this car is an e x c e l l en t track car. But I personally wouldnt buy it.....because of the following suggestions:
....Having a Lotus Espirit.....I can tell you this car is absolutely NOT a track car. It is for someone who wants a good looking car....with the messy driving experience of older true exotics. Having said that...I have to tell you the there are NO cars that slide as PERFECTLY
as a Lotus Esprit.
As far as the Lotus ELISE :
My brother has a deposit on the first Elise to be brought into New York as he arranged the deposit an signing BEFORE lotus USA announced bringing this car into the country.(thats how much he likes the car) Bottom LINE on the LOTUS :
Car looks like an ALIEN.....BUT is an EXCELLENT TRACK CAR!!!!!!!
My suggestion......get a PORSCHE 911 !!!!!!!!!!
.....nothing gives you as much driver feedback...and puts that rewarding smile on your face as one of these cars. Trust me.....once you buy one...you're hooked!! PLUS there is SO MUCH out there in terms of parts and racing (one of the probs with the RX7)
APPLES and OTHERS....get a porsche 911....you wont be disappointed. My suggestion is ...
#1 must be a 911 AFTER 1978 (rust proof)
#2 "SC" or Carrera (1981-1988) are among the most reliable cars you will ever own
#3 I personally would SKIP
the 964 version....and go straight for a 993.
Hope this helps!
