GT or GTS?
Is there really that big of a difference between the GT and the GTS. how big of a differnece is there in insurance for a 16 male new driver? cause the GTS is considered a sports car while a GT is a passanger car. I mean i'd rather get the GTS cause its faster and everything. but i mean is it really worth it if theres that big of a difference in insurance?

you can get a GT with all the options of a GTS, except the engine. buy what you want... with the budget that is available to you. Car payments, plus car ins, plus gasoline, plus maint or wear & tear.

sounds like you are looking for speed - then dont buy the celica - buy a car that is built to go fast, and not to look fast grin

but if you are 16 and looking for speed - check out this link...

Know your car before speeding around town, risking your life and doing stupid things. Endangering the lives of everyone on the street as well.

Are you looking for fast on the tracks? buy a beater and take it to the tracks... are you looking for fast on public streets? dont forget that you can only go as fast as the car infront of you - ie; leave your house earlier and you wont be late grin

140 to a 180 hp.. its a nice difference, but im currently lookin into a gt since:
1- i don't want to spend $32 000+ on a car (canadian $$$)
2- insurance will be waaayyy lower if i get a gt

maybe ur in the same situation i am??? idunnojust my 2 cents thumbsup thumbsup

I'm 17 and was in the same dilema. I decided to get a new GT with the Action Pkg. If you want a GTS and are worried about money, you could just get a used one

gas for GT is 87 octane
gas for GTS is 91 octane

if you do a tank a week (about 300 miles), you will sure pay more for your GTS

gas prices here in SoCal are about $2.04/gal of 91 ... they've been going up again cry

you're going to see more modded celicas for sale by owner b/c the dealership isn't going to give you anymore for CAI, exhaust, etc, but in the private sector you usually can

There are so many factors that vary with each individual and insurance company. Best advice: call your insurance carrier to find out, and shop around!

Dang thats making me think so much more about buying a GT over a GTS Since I am only 16 also and will be getting one for graduation. So the GTS only takes premium gas? Using regular unleaded is out of the question? Im from so cal and I know the gas prices are high as hell. All these factors are making me wonder. I want the 40 extra hp though because I want to race mine at the track against my friends. I dont want a slow car, but I also dont want to spend over 20,000.

if your getting a car just for racing...get an srt4...the celica 'looks fast' remember? rofl Anyways, if you want a GTS..get one. You wont really be happy if you want something...and then get something not as good (not that im saying the gt's are not good!). Both cars are great...but if it's the GTS you want, get it. thumbsup

yeah, the insurance isn't too much of a diffeence ($125/6 months for me) if you want a fast car, the celi isn't it...get a civic and put $2000 into it and be running 12s, but look like a fag. OR get a GTS, have a really nice lookin car, that is fast enough to pass in a hurry or get up and go, but not necessarily to race...my .02

Not really...there really isnt that much aftermarket support for the celica...theres basically just Intake...exhaust...headers...and some superchargers and turbos. You wont be making any major horsepower numbers (around 260-280 POSSIBLY). Though, you can buy a base GT...and for $10,000 put a 3s-gte engine turbocharged and goodies...and have around 500hp...it's up to you...like I have said many times...I like the celicas for its looks...not performance. I hope I helped some. thumbsup

just dont rice it out.. if thats what you plan to do then dont bother buyin a celi.. at ur age theres no hurry in gettin a car.. i say you get a beater car.. getta job and save up.. get the gts.. then tell ur dad to pay for ur insurance rather than the car.. car payments gonna be a lot cheaper and more short term than the insurance payments.. my 2 cents.

If it's a good looking car you're interested in, the Celica GT or GTS is it. Period.

I'm 18 and I have a 2003 Celi. If insurance is what you are worried about then deffenitaly go GT. for us younger owners insurance is through the freakin roof. You can always buy parts for your GT later to get that extra hp. If you have above a 3.5 gpa then some insurance aggencies will give you a lower rate. I suggest get a GT, get a job, go to college, graduate, geat a career, get a supra, and live happly ever after.

insteand of getting a GTS y not get a GT, and turbo it and you'll still be paying less than the GTS and your GT will be a lot faster

im 16 and have a gt and trust me, at our age no one is gonna care if its only 140 hp unless your hanging around rich ass kids with bmw's. otherwise id say get what ever is cheaper and your insurance company wont think your joking when you roll up in a gts

Insurance for the GT and GTS are the same. Both are considered sports cars. Of course it will be ridiculously high if you're 16.

Werd. Insurance companies don't base their premiums on horsepower.

personally i would get a gts. nothing against the GT but after spending the difference in price on upgrades you will only be pulling numbers close to that of a GTS. Plus i'd rather say i have the top of the line celica, than i have the bottom line. I dunno like if i were to get an rsx, i'd want a type s, if i were to get a civic, i would want a SI. Although i would take a base 350Z, but they all have the same engine grin Celica gets good gas milage, so i don't see a problem spending the extra $$ on premium. Much better than paying for premiun and only getting 19-20 mpg (300zx NA almost got one). How much are you planning on spending? An important thing to think about is what you want your car to be. For me my car is my hobby, my friend, my outlet. I like looking at my car in the parking lot, i love to take it out just for random drives, when i'm angry i love to take it out and push its limits. I mean there are a lot of things to think about before buying a car.

buy a used gts...thats what i did...i got one with 31k miles for 12k...and now i can't live without lift... thumbsup

Edit: i was 16 at time of buying the gts, i've had it over a year and a half now...and just file insurance under a parent until you are 18; it is legal, and it is CHEAP!


Not just another girl's car...

i can't be under my parents insurance. cause if i ever get into an accident they can come after my dads buisness. my dads supposed to get incorperated soon so then the buisness is on a different policy or something. but theres still a couple months until i get my permit even.

if you do a tank a week (about 300 miles), you will sure pay more for your GTS

gas prices here in SoCal are about $2.04/gal of 91 ... they've been going up again cry
its 2 35 now !

and that turbo will do what? boost its power up to that of a gts? not a good idea imo. turbos are not known for being reliable plus they add extra wear to your engine. better just to buy a stronger engine.

not saying pick a gts (i have a gts) over a gt, but i don't recommend buying a gt for the reason that you can afford to put a turbo in it.

Werd. Insurance companies don't base their premiums on horsepower.


some do, my one friend got hit with a power-to-wieght ratio in his wrx and is shelling out like $300 more on his premium

mine insurance company does spineyes

and besides, you can find out yourself. just take a visit to any insurance website www.progressive.com (for example) and plug in the celica gt and the celica gts models (hold everything else the same, obviously. you will find that your quote is higher in a gts thumbsup
