Not the best, but better than many

2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Although this car has been categorized as "sports", it isn't. It lacks the power to support, "sports". What many people are complaining about I have to agree with as far as easy scratches, "ears" on my top when dropped, and fogged headlights. However, I love the interior of this car as basic and simple as it is. It has what you need, not what you want. That's what I want. Of course it would be ideal if this car was a lexus, but it isn't. I highly recommend to purchase this car used and invest another 3k into a turbo and another 1k into suspension components. I will have spent a total of 11k into this car if I do so with the purchase price; then the car would be phenomenally fast and handling.
Suspension is tight for stock and nearly 10 years old.
Turbo, Suspension upgrade, Limited Slip Differential. That's it.
