: : Very very close..the performance figures for both cars are identical..0-60 5.5sec and quarter mile in 14.0....depends on the driver.

: He's talking about a 2nd gen Turbo II, not a 3rd gen RX-7. If you're talking about E36 M3 vs. 2nd gen RX-7 turbo II, the M3 is far superior in both acceleration and handling (even though SOLO II classifies them both in A stock). The Turbo II is much cheaper though, and can be modified to be quite fast.

5.5sec 0-60 is a 2nd gen..not a 3rd gen. I sold my 94 RX7 prior to buying my M3. 5.3sec 0-60 was the spec 0-60 time....I could get 5.2sec with a perfect launch, which was extremely difficult. Brad's right about mods....after mine was modified, it flew.
