A friend of mine wants to buy a SPORTS car.

Now, he's not much of a car guy. By sports he doesn't mean performance, he means more like "an uncommon shape". A corvette, a porsche, a jag XK would fit the bill. It's not about the number of doors, it's more about looking sporty.

I kind of get his point. He feels the 300zx on its time was sportier than the new Z, even though the new Z is a 2 seater and the 300zx was 2 + 2 and had a 222 hp engine.

Now that we cleared what he means by sporty, here's what he's looking for:

VERY sporty (his definition)
2 + 2 (this one is a must)
must be current generation (he told me this AFTER I suggested the acura NSX, 300zx and rx-7 :gah )

Any ideas? so far only the Jaguar XK comes to mind. Oh and the porsche 911.

But in all honesty, why not something like a BMW 335i Coupe?

2+2 :whipitgood:

and I disagree with his point, the G35 is just as sporty as the 2+2 300zx (which only came in NA) and I think just as stylish.

The only downside to the new generation is there's no supercar cousin of the chassis, like the old 300zx twin turbo coupes (they were all 2 seaters)

Wait, which 300zx are you talking about Z31 or Z32? Because the Z32 300zx came in both 2 seater and 2+2

How about a GT-R? Not sure if that would be out of his price range but those have backseats dont they?

I definitely think what your friend is looking for is a coupe of some sort. 2+2 sports cars are virtually obsolete.

both gens came as 2+2 or coupe, but only coupes were turbo's.

Forte Koup :lol:

on a more serious note.

Volvo C30 or C70

BMW, 1-series, 3 series, 6 series, Z4

Mazda RX-8 before they are discontinued

Whenever the Lotus Evora shows up, it would be cool.

Does this dude have a price range or hate certain things.

Great handling though, considering magazines and Top Gear always achieve lap times compared with more powerful competitors.

I wouldn't choose one over an XK or a DB9 or 612 for several times the price. Especially a DB9.

Well once you pay for all the oil you need to add, and the many trips to the dealer, the RX-8 is right up there in price.

Plus, they seem to me more mod-friendly than their contemporaries, maybe even the old FD's.

Dude has a price range. I don't exactly know his price range, but I know the evora and 6 series are out of his range. The E coupe is barely in his range.

I suggested all of your suggestions dudes... he likes the E coupe, XK and M3 Coupe. If he chooses something I'll let you know 🇦🇫

BTW he actually considers the mustang too... even though it'd "not sporty enough"
