"With the fourth generation of the Supra, Toyota took a big leap in the direction of a more powerful sports car. The new Supra was completely redesigned, with rounded body styling and featured two new engines: a naturally aspirated 2JZ-GE producing 220 hp (164 kW) @5800 rpm and 210 ft·lbf (285 N·m) @4800 rpm (285 N·m) of torque and a twin turbocharged 2JZ-GTE making 276 bhp (205 kW) and 260 ft·lbf (352 N·m) of torque for the Japanese version. For the export model (America/Europe) Toyota upgraded the Supra turbo's engine (larger turbochargers, bigger fuel injectors, etc.). This increased the power output to 320 hp (239 kW) @5600 rpm and 315 ft·lbf (427 N·m) @4000 rpm. The turbocharged variant could achieve 0–60 mph in as low as 4.6 seconds and 1/4 mile (402 m) in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph (175 km/h) [2]. The turbo version was tested to reach over 289 km/h (180 mph) all-stock, but the cars are restricted to just 180 km/h in Japan and 250 elsewhere. European versions also had an air intake on the bonnet (hood). Drag coefficient is .33."

I stand corrected on the HP, I took the japanese version. I prefer my cars to handle over raw power so I agree the Miata was impressive. I have actually been half way looking at getting one and getting back into racing. The Miata spec racers are very competitive and you can have great fun for a limited budget
