Default Q's on 2013 Scion Fr-S. Scion Frs vs. G35 & Mustang GT.?

Hello i'm a female and I recently just graduated collage and i'm really interested in cars (fixing/upgrading them) So first I was really interested in the 370Z but then lost interest because of the 2 seats, down fall to me. Then moved on to the G35 but EVERYONE has it, pretty annoying.

I don't want a Mustang, I don't like Mustang's.

I love how the 2013 Scion Fr-s looks, hate the interior. But over time I want to fi it up and upgrade to cold air intake, turbo all that jazz. My q's is, I know this car does get beat a lot by g35 & Mustangs Gt's but if I fix this baby up will I beat those cars in racing??

I want to race my friends, they have..

Mustang Gt, G35, 350z.

Sorry if any of my information is wrong, I am just a girl. lol

Please do help.

I want to get this car already but iffy b/c of the horrible horsepower on the Frs.

Yes a turbocharged or supercharged Scion FR-S can keep up with or beat those other cars. There are already kits made for turbocharging and Supercharging. However, they are very expensive. Be prepared to pay $6000 on top of the purchase price of the FR-S to get it to be as fast as cars like the 350z.

YOU HAVE ZERO CHANCE of beting a MUSTANG or other HIGH OUTPUT cars! the SCION was made to be ECONOMICAL and CHEAP to make more $$$. IT was NOT made to compete with more MUSCLE type cars! if you w2ant a GREAT compromise, tyr a nice used TURBO AUDI car! This has MORE potential, gets GREAT FUEL mileager, is SAFER to own, CHEPAER to insure, and wil NOT RUST AWAY for twenty years or longer! They are EASY to modify form MORE POWER and THEN you can cream a fewe MUSTANGS! I had a 1980 AUID TURBO five clyinder AUTOMATIC that was a Z28 and MUSTANG GT KILLER! It always got 23 MPG"S all day long, too! tHE mustang IS A verry hearty car< ADN THE NEW ONES ARE MADE FROM dynomite technology THAT A scion CANNOT HANDLE OR MATCH! THE scion IS ONLY CAPABLE OF HOUSING A very small four cylinder engien< BUT GETS supurb FUEL MILEAGE! tHEY HANDLE MORE LIKE boxes THAN CARS! The G35 is a MUCH STRONGER and more refined car, and is MORE confortable but has LESS utlilty than the SCIONs do! Expcert only ACCEPTABLE power but GOOD fuel ecoomy fromt his BEAST! A MINI COOPPER has more potential as well and is STRONGER in the body departmetn as well! The SCION has flimsier body panels to save on weight. The NEW MUSTANGS are TOTALLY AWESOMa dn worth their price and wil keep thier vavlues HIGHER! The AUDI is a TRUE race car detuned for the street, and has LOTS of luxury features in it! They DO need to be attnded to by someoine that KNOWS and LOVES THEM! GOOD LUCK and check out a few other NISSANS or TOYOTA's here! and you are VERY WISE not to include the CAMARO in your LUST LIST! They get LOUSY fuel mileage and STILL have overactive brakes that can propel; you through the WINDSHIELD in a PANIC STOP with belts OFF! GM is SO FAR BEHIND it is SCAREY! YOu will NEVER beat the GENUINE EUROPEAN technology in an AUDI< BMW or BENZ by any car makers! GOOD LUCK!
