Are Import cars faster than Domestic? I am not a fan of 4 cylinder cars but I borrowed a Misubishi Evo for the weekend since my Jeep was in the shop. It was faster than most domestics I've ever driven which includes a few big block V8's. I tested this car against my friend's 2003 Impala and the new Pontiac G6 and both cars were really no competition. The Mitsubishi was a 4 door car and not really a sports car. So I would assume that if I had a true Import sports car (2 doors, twin turbos, etc..) would pretty much own Domestics? Btw, I am a Jeep owner so perhaps it's all relative cuz Jeeps are slugs anyway.
