350z vs G35 vs Supra

I'm looking to buy a new car, something sporty and different. Will be used as daily driver also something that can be modded > mainly looks.


white 2005 nissan 350z : 28,000k miles, 5-spd, $17,900
silver 2005 G35 coupe: 31,000k miles, 6-spd, $19,000
white 1995 toyota supra tt: 34,000k miles, 6-spd, $19,500

the prices that I've listed is the best deal the owners can give me, and that fits in my current budget. Cars are across the border in WA.

thx in advance for suggestions.

sporty, different, daily driver, something that can have cosmetic mods

all 3 are sporty, can be daily driven and modded.

if you're looking for "different," go for the supra.

yes I'm more interested in the supra mostly, forgot to mention that. It's fully loaded with leather interior. Will probably go with that, thanks.

G35 and 350Z are more common, you will see them everywhere, everyday.

Supra is more rare...so if you're looking for something different, definitely Supra.

Also Supra is powered by Yamaha 2JZ engine and it is proven to be very reliable engine too.

It's gotta be LHD because JDM spec (RHD) are not legal in the US > 25 year rule.

Definitely I'd go with the G, i'm sick of them all over the place but they make a good car

That 350Z isn't really much cheaper than many local ones, and the Supra TT seems like it'd be a money pit with all the potential mods :P

These aren't cars I just found on craigslist, these are from people I personally know.

I talked with my friend Joel and this is how much he'll sell it to me for. I don't think the price bothers him, hes got better cars and he hardly drives this one. I researched supra pricing in the US and I think it's a steal as far as I'm concerned.

I've made my decision, thanks for the suggestions.

so you're going with the Supra then? good choice I would say, considering spotting a LHD supra is rarer than spotting a 911 Turbo. 20k for a supra is relatively low for a car thats only got 34k miles. Although I must warn you that gas on that thing must be hell. I have the non-turboed 2JZ-GE in my car and its a thirsty beast. Can't even imagine the fuel consumption with two more turbos. Hope this works out for you!

For a nice DD, I would say get a g35. Chicks will dig it too. Hopefully it's black or gun metal. Pearl white is nice, but a little played out.

post pics of the supra if that's what you end up getting! I love that car and always wanted one. That would be my choice out of the three.

I'm gonna get a supra in future years, they aren't as "played out" as the G35 and 350 both of which make excellent cars

pretty much every single high performance Toyota cars' engines were built by Yamaha.

LFA, Supra, ISF, Chaser, Mark II, Celica, Soarer, MR2, etc...

Well since i own a supra and a g35 let me share some of my experiences, first that supra is a bit on the cheap side i paid 28500 for mine 94tt 6speed(50k miles) but i guess due to recession but still do the inspection check everything(specially the tranny)
As for the g35 its a bit pricey check local craigs list sure there are better deals

The biggest problem with these cars is the price your going to pay am not sure if your aware of the duty/tax deal so add 18% tax on the price, and the currency conversion.

As for the driving experience trust me none of those cars will compare to a supra, its easy to upgrade from stock 11psi to 16psi and that will give you enough power to make you smile ever day however dont expect to drive that car in snow and very slowly in rain. With mine the drive is very sporty, rough, but fun.
The g35 is more of a luxury sports car not as much power or attention, or thrill. Parts are cheaper and easier to maintain. Drive the 3 cars and decide what you like more, no one can really tell you what to buy it comes to personal choice.
