Is300 Vs Supra Rz


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i was just wondering what would be a better choice for a first car as i am about to get my P plates very soon, i'm finding it hard to choose between an IS300 and a Supra, even though they have the same engine, i don't really know the difference between performance as it looks neck on neck. Preferably stock, can someone help me decide between them.

P.S. How much Kw are both cars?

Thanks :) :)

well

Supra=Sports car

IS300=Sports saloon

Supra

Pros

Handling

Looks

Manual gearbox

alot of aftermarket body and performance options

Cons

N/A if your on your P's (slow)

Most are auto only a handfull of manuals going around for a good price

Mostly old and trashed

IS300

Pros

4 door + boot

3L straight six is much better than the 2L Straight six over the IS200

Light and nimble handling

Better interior compared to the supra

Good aftermarket support for mods etc (esp in mods as the US boys go crazy with the IS300

Cons

Auto only

bland looks compared to the Supra

Sum it up

id say comparing a supra and the IS300 is meaningless as they are different cars intended for different purpose

but if your after stragith performance and want to fit big wide wheels for traction and such ill do with the N/A supra and swap out the motor and gearbox for a 2JZGTE set up with the 6 speed

*but saying that u can do the same to the IS300 and drop in the Supra set up and then u have a Sleeper that will scare alot of people on the road

You can think of the IS300 as a 4 door supra if that makes any sense to you

hope that helps

Thanks this has helped a lot, it's a difficult choice. You make a good point with the trashed supras, most online are above 150,000Km and most likely would've been thrashed. What are some other sports cars legal for P platers and aren't too expensive?

If you are looking for a supra, and you are on your P's, go for the SZ-R. It comes with the 6 speed getrag box from the RZ and if you are lucky enough, it might even have the optional larger 4 pot brakes.

What do you mean when you say not too expensive? What's your budget?
