Default savin up and need ideas

ok so im 16 with lots of floating income. i work and save my money and i wanna buy a nice car to well lets say roast anybopdy my age. my goal is to grraduate with the fastest car.inmind so far i was thinking of a 05 + mustang gt and adding a vortec supercharger. Other options include a 1993-1994 rx-7 lhd or an infinity g35coupe wuhich would get twin turbo's. i want a car that could runa 8.0-1.0 and all these cars have the ideas. i want somethin that is fast and i can look good in. But i also like drifting so id want a limited slip differential. anybody got any advise? or any other cars that would be a good car for this, any assistance would be nice

If u want to be a drifter you shouldn't spend a lot of money making it look good because you're gonna end up crashing one day (like me). If you don't mind working on a car to make it a good drift car, you should buy an AE86, they cost only $2500 and if you fix it up it's a really good car.

You would be making a bad decision to get a Mustang GT as a sixteen year old. If you want something that can get up and go, but cheap, get a Cobalt or import equivelent. Maybe even an Acura RSX/TSX?

The RX7s are really nice car but the rotary engines are very temperamental. A single knock or ping is enough to destroy the Apex seal and overheat the engine. Very well balance car and are great for track and road racing.

To Turbocharge the VQ35DE (Nissan 350z, Infinity G35) will take alot of money. Turbonetic is one company that makes a turbo kit for the VQ35DE. Don't forget, to turbo an engine that is not meant for turbo (NA/Normally Aspirated) will require alot of modification. You will most likely need to beef up your bottom-end for forced induction.

The Mustang GT with a supercharger is pretty decent. You get a V-8 with the instantaneous boost from the supercharger is a thrill to ride with. Stuffing a supercharger into the GT will require less skill than trying to boost a VQ35DE or making a reliable 13B-REW (Rotary Engine).

Getting into the performance set of mind requires patients and a whole lot of researching. Once you start making horsepower, expect things to break. ALOT!!!!! A bullet proof engine is not bullet proof if you are running on a crappy tune. I've build my DSM for the last 5 years and it has taken alot of blood and tears. I've gone through 5 engines, 3 Trannies, 3 transfer case, and so on and on....... You get the idea.

what would it be like with an rx-8 to put a turbo into that? i like those too and i dont want something that will break down lots i want something with high power buy yet reliable

****edit*****
i know what i want is probably impossible but i just want a car with 4-600 wbhp
and if you turbo a subaru impreza wrx they already have 300 so if you get a good one that would work??? or the g35 coupe and do the lower end on it??? im not always to inteligent :P

RX8 have the newer rotary engine (13B Renesis). The Renesis is not turbocharged as Mazda was more concentrated on efficiency and reliability. Once again, once you turbo a NA engine, reliability goes out the door.

16 year old + fast car + no experience = Not a good idea.
