Good question... when you get a definite answer, tell me... I'm partial to the 914 as far as cost vs. ability. Find me another car that won it's class at Le mans that you can pick up under 5k... granted a track prepped one is more expensive. But it's definitely a good first track car especially with how easy PCA makes it to get into racing. However it's really a matter of opinion when it gets down to it.
