honestly no, I dont know much of the celica, but Im pretty sure that the stocked 04 celica is only pushing 140 horses, maybe you could beat the civic or neon, but as far as the Mustang and the comaro, No. and definately not the Nissan ZX which is stocked twin turbo at around 240 horses. If youre looking to buy a car for racing dont waste 17,000 on a celica theres a lot of realy fast cars
you could get for that kind of money. Dont forget about the 05 STI, and the EVO which get 260 horses I think. Then theres the dodge SRT4 which is looking at 230 horses stocked turbo.

assuming these are all stock...

i highly doubt the celica would beat an integra, mustang and a camaro. i dont know bout the rest. it may stand a chance against a neon, civic and crx, but you gotta be a bit more specific. what type of cars?

Not to be picky, but the 05 STI gets 300 horses and the 05 EVO gets 276 hp.

Yes, and it's CamAro, and the CRX weighs under 2K and was available with a nice little VTEC, you probably can't beat a CRX SI. Oh, and not all 300ZX were turbocharged, they were available non-turbo.

The EVO has 276 Hp and the STi has 300 hp. Oh.. someone already said that... sorry.
Save up your money and get a more powerful car. The EVO and STi MSRP at around 30K so thats a long way. I dont know where the SRT starts at, but that maybe a better choice.

If you want a Celica:
I did some research and found that the Celica GT is 17K and has just 140 HP. It weighs about 2.4K LBS which I believe is fairly light. If you really want a Celica, save up and get a GT-S. It is 22k and has 180 Hp, weighs 2.5K LBS and has some sport packages which could make it into a beater, I dont really care to look too far into it, but thats my take.

Ok. The GT-S packages are lame, but it does have more hp.

GTS is god when it comes to my car... corolla... haha, sorry to get off topic, but a corolla gts kicks the crap out of a sr5 any day... so, in some cases, gts packages are AWESOME

Oh yes they can. Ever seen a dude driving a late model drop-top bug? You'd look like Sly Stalone compared to that guy.

But, I have to agree, unless you get the boosted model of either, you could do better.
