Well.. considering that the Nissan 300ZX 2+2, Toyota Supra TT, Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4, and Mazda RX-7 were all made has high performance twin turbo imports. You could'nt really go wrong with either of them. Some are heavier than others. Some are a hell of alot lighter. Some are able to hold alot of power.

None the less I've seen every car in that list drop 9 second quartermile times. So you make the pick. Stock performance should'nt play a factor anyways. Because if you're buying any of those cars(especially the Supra and RX-7) you've the got bread to upgrade one of those badgirls.

Here we go again....
Well, the 1/4th miles times don't lie. I'm sure those are easily findable.
Uh.
Dependability/practicality etc I guess would be the only remaining debating issues, but I can't talk on any as I've only sat in two supras and only seen 300zx's from the outside.
Personally, I'd choose the supra, just for its awe factor (omg look at that supra)
Not to mention they are driftable, as opposed to the heavy backended 300zx. (Have you ever seen an option video with a single drift 300z?...)
Also, I would think that there would be more parts available for the 2JZE than the whatever is in the 300 (btw, anyone know the engine code for the z?)

The Supra is driftable but it's not the easiest car to drift and I think the 300zx would be able to drift. On an other note I know the Supra is a straight six TT but isn't the 300zx a V6 TT? I'm not sure but either way i'd go the Surpa.

theyre both fast, they can both drift (ANYTHING RWD can drift if you really try) the both look sweet, ive ridden in both, ive driven both, but since the supras an L6, and the z is a v6, the supras a little more tourqy, so it jumps off a little faster

hmmm.... I say Supra! and heres why!

1. Since the fast and furious and 2f2f its got a reputation of a celebrity sports car! head turner!

2. well there are plenty of supras and 300ZX down here but well ive seen the kids look at the 300ZX and say oohhh. when they look at the supra they stop stare and go WOW!!

3. Supra's are so modable and there torquey and are more flexaible than even the skyline!

the new supra is aimed at tearing the 350Z down!

supras and skylines are the legends! 300ZX TT is really nice its just not at this level i dont think

the 300zx was in kill bill.... doesn't that make it a celeb car?

i'd pick the 300zx,
why? cos they are sooo underated and because of their disadvantages they are even cheaper than a r32gts!
for the price of a supra tt i could get 2 300z's

No a celebrity sports car would be a BMW, Porshce, Ferrari, or a Mercedes. Anyone with a large ammount of cash would'nt be caught dead in a cheap ass Toyota Supra. I don't know what celebritys you are talking about but I have'nt seen any in a Supra.

2. well there are plenty of supras and 300ZX down here but well ive seen the kids look at the 300ZX and say oohhh. when they look at the supra they stop stare and go WOW!!
Thats because idiots like..well. This one is self explanitory. Any dumbass who buys a car because people say WOW is just that.

3. Supra's are so modable and there torquey and are more flexaible than even the skyline!
This is up for debate. Seing as that you've probably never even worked on a Supra nor Skyline I wonder how you would be able to verify any of those claims.

the new supra is aimed at tearing the 350Z down!
These claims of a new Supra have'nt been verified. Stop lying to yourself. Its going to take alot more than a Supra to tear down the Z.

supras and skylines are the legends! 300ZX TT is really nice its just not at this level i dont think
Hmm...
300ZX
300 bhp @ 6400 rpm
283 ft lbs @ 3600 rpm
0-60 6.0 s
3474.5 lbs
1/4 14.1

Supra
320 bhp @5800rpm
315 ft lbs @ 4000
0-60 5.0
3620 lbs
1/4 13.9

What level is'nt it exactly at? Do you even know what you're talking about? Supra legendary? Haha yeah right.. The first Supras were made a hell of alot later than the LEGENDARY Z car. The Z car that people still activley buy more than any older MA70's are today. Hell I bet you did'nt even know the Supras history extended to 1986 with MA70's. Again if you're going to throw arround bullshit at least make it look good. A car whose history is still going today some 36 odd years later. Still holding number top position in performance imports. Maybe you should learn a few things about what a "legendary" car is before you open your mouth. They don't call it the Legedary Z for nothing ...

The Supra and 300z are barely in the same class.

And so in conclusion, supra wins.
duh.
