IT DEPENDS ON YOUR STYLE AND WHAT YOU WANT. IF YOU LIKE SPORTY, THE MR2 IS NICE!! JUST REMEMBER, IT IS ONLY A 2 PERSON CAR. ALL THESE CARS ARE QUITE OLDER, I'D HAVE THEM CHECKED OUT. I OWN 2 TOYOTA PREVIA VANS,AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THEM. ME AND MY FAMILY HAVE OWNED SEVERAL TOYOTAS, AND THEY ARE AWESOME!!! THEY LAST!!!! I HEAR ALOT OF GREAT THINGS ABOUT THE COROLLA. I REALLY HAVEN'T HEARD ABOUT THE SUPRA.

the corolla gts is a good choice if your using it for drift or auto cross































the mr2 is good for drag or autocross....but i suggest looking for the supercharged mr2.....































the supra is good for high way running and drag....but its best to get rid of the 5mge and get a 1/2jzgte swap...































me personally owned a 86 mr2 n/a with a jdm small port 4age swap w/ few other mods on it and was able to kill a srt4 neon and swaped hondas....

Bear in mind the Supra has a 3 litre engine and so would cost substantially more to own / run. The MR2 is a great handling fun car, but, bear in mind is a 2 seater and unless it has been looked after and is in decent condition it may cost you alot of money eg the exhaust and manifold are subject to corrosion, as is the water pump. The twin cam 16v engine is the same one as fitted into the Corolla GTi , the Corolla would be the cheapest to run, out of the 3. So, Supra : largest, highest top speed, dearest to run. MR2 : Best 0-60 (unless the Supra is a turbo model ! ), fantastic handling, 2 seats, potentially expensive. Corolla : cheapest, similar top speed to MR2 but not as exciting to drive / own.

get the 86 corolla. in this day and age that a much rarer car than the other two because they use them in drifting and like all beginer drivers. crash them beyond repair. so if you can get an 86 corolla. go for it.

Everyone else has answered your question as to whether each car is sporty or common to drive. But my concern is why are you looking at such old cars? Do you find them as good complete cars or are these junkers that you'll have to spend mega-bucks to fix up into something nice to drive?































That's my concern, that looking at such old cars, they would need major $$$ to keep them in good SAFE condition. A car starts to wear down in abut 3-5 years, and starts to wear out in 10 yrs. That's STARTS TO, not does wear down or out. Ten year old cars can be quite good. But cars are meant to wear down. Their parts are made to wear out. Just by driving them like little old grannies, they wear out. Tires, shocks/struts, brakes, alternators, batteries, timing belts or chains, even door hinges will wear out. So you've got to ask yourself, what's the value of getting such older cars if you've got to spend so much to either keep them running or fix them up to run at all.















Plus, the slightly newer cars in 90s might be better for sporty cars than in the 80's, because they still had lots of the OLD smog crap on them to rob them of good power. It wasn't until the 90s when they learned to build better engines so that the smog control wouldn't take so much power from them, and they could still lay rubber. That's when the Mustang became a REAL sports car again!!































So look at what your bottom dollar is going to be for buying, fixing up, and keeping fixed up for each one, rather than how fast you want to take corners and how quickly you want to fill up your gas tank.
