Selling fully loaded (when new) inside of $25,000, it's the poor man's Ferrari. The four-banger base-model is a cheap little cutey-patootie coupe.
The 2.5-liter V-6 GT, however, is the most underappreciated sports car of all time, largely because of the four-banger models. It can, and routinely does, smoke its contemporaries, such as the 240sx
, the Celica
GT/GT-S, and the Honda Civic
or Acura Integra
. To this day, the machine's reliability lets it take on modern-day cars, from the vaunted Mustang GT to the Civic Si.
Let's see some good ol' boy
in some rustang
take that. With his pathetic solid rear axle.
-It's bad enough my Probe GT takes your Mustang GT in every handling category, but I beat you in drag too. Why did you waste all that money?
-Wow. The Ford Probe GT takes a lot of crap about the name, but no one ever wins against it in a race. Wonder why?
