Respect to the previous poster at 58 yrs of age and loving the FTO :) I hope I'm still into my sports cars when / if I reach that age (29 now) :)

Hi, for as long as I can remember I've been in competition with my brother, he just bought a 95 FTO GR (180bhp). Because he's my brother, I can't get the same thing, I need something Japanese, similar in price range, and similar in performance (e.g. top speed 138mph or whatever it is), any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

The older style Celica is probably the best bet looking at prices, some of the Gen 6 Celicas have 170bhp and 0-60 in 7.9 seconds 137mph top speed. They look similar to the FTO and fit the requirements you set out.

These models have the 2.0 litre with 170bhp:




I think 1994-1998 was the run for production. Should be similar price as well, hope this helps.

FTO GPX - Rules. The best car I've ever had.

I love the FTO GP Version R. It's the ultimate Japanese car ever and when the Mivec kicks in... Ohh the thrill!

I have had my FTO for 10 years, and I love it. I have just bought a Mazda RX8, top of the range 6 speed, which I have to say is nowhere near as much fun as the FTO.

I am 54 years old, and I think the FTO knocks spots off the Mazda. My FTO is a manual, and it is like a rocket launching when I set off, and people can hear it for miles around.

I will get rid of Mazda before FTO LOL.
