I test drove the car and it is weak. From 1st to what is it, fifth, yes, weak. I like the 86 + model better. The celica supra is nice too. But the st, gt, gts is weak. It make a good daily driver that's about it. Car looks nice inside and outside. Still thinking about getting it. I'm going search on e-bay and autotrader. Also ae86 pages.

alight the 3rd and 4th gens celica yes they are slow. if possible stop looking for a ST or GT and look for the Alltrac model best way for performance.

if your stuck with getting the ST or GT model its ok. remove the weak 4a/5s motor from there and replace it with a 3sGTE from the ST205 Celica the motor itself is good for 225 hp stock to the wheels and very good for upgrades.
