Car when new was going for $26K and we picked it up 3 years old for $18K. It´s been a very good car, short of the recent craziness with the headlamp bulb causing the interior lights to go nuts. But that was a $17 fix. Otherwise, perfect. There are lots of aftermarket parts, most fun is the supercharger pulley that increases S/C speed and gives more boost. I´ve got the K&N kit now, but adding the overdrive pulley brings the GTP to nearly 300 horsepower. You can add a couple of exhaust packages to go even further. One thing though, it´s only available with a 4 speed automatic, but hey, there´s a kit for that also to tighten up the shifts and gives a 4-2 downshift feature for more lively performance. We´ve got the model with traction control and even with that and the 225 profile tires, it´s seriously traction limited in the standing start. I´d agree with the 0-60 time of just over 6 seconds. On the road it will eat alive nearly anything. Mustangs are no problem at all. The only car I had trouble with was a newer Firebird with the Ram Air package. Huge engine, that´s all it is under the hood - engine engine engine! Gas mileage is accurate - we usually get 19-21 in the city and 31 on the highway, if driving sensibly. It´s a big car but light on its feet. Huge interior and got a massive trunk which is great on trips. And the beauty of it all is that it only costs me $45 a month in insurance. Granted I´m 31 and married, but I was still mighty impressed. My 95EGT costs me $38 so there´s barely a difference. GTP´s are easy to insure because their body panels are shared with the GT´s. Only difference is different colored front and rear underhangs and the GTP badging. And of course the S/C... Feel free to hit me up in private email if you have any further questions. I´d say get one if you can.
