Something that runs, always a good thing to start out with.

even if one does have 80k laying around...or for any amount...what person would get such a car as a starter?

like putting an inexperienced driver behind a wheel of an exotic...we all know what the outcome will be...

Money does not buy experience...I've seen teens who cant handle 130hp civics and it ends up in a ditch or a guardrail...

Most people don't LEARN to drive on their own cars. Exotics aren't too difficult to handle unless you have intent on racing.

Yeah...most ppl dont learn to drive using their own car because if something were to happen on their first encounter with driving...it would have been with their parent's car or someone' elses..

when we are on topic about a STARTER car...it refers to a decent choice for a beginner's first car for that person...not a race inspirated car for the experienced...

and since when does a driver who is starting out with a starter car...has any intentions to race? oh gee whiz...lets get a lamborghini for a young driver who will be using the lambo as their first car...lets not hope he/she gets into a wreck...yeah right...

Have you drove an exotic or any car that has sufficient amount of power? the handling characteristics is beyond that of an econoshitbox typical teens start off with.

Some teens purchase cars for their looks and power. I'd buy something more powerful if i had the cash. The most powerful car I've EVER driven is my uncles R33 GT-R, if you consider that as something which has a sufficient amount of power. The car is easy to drive (only somewhat harder than an economy car) if you stick to the speed limit. Personally, I wouldn't start with an expensive car, just because of the crash chances and insurance. All I'm trying to point out is that there's nothing wrong with starting with an exotic if you've got the money. ;o

Skylines are known to correct alot of driver errors. It doesn't correct everything but most mistakes are usually corrected by the ECU.

There is everything wrong with starting with an exotic/expensive car.

Good example why you shouldn't give a teenager a car he can't handle.
Here is a great example why you don't give kids a car they can't drive. Even the GT-R which corrects everything, can't correct drivers going past the cars limit.

Point taken, but in most cases, people simply don't obey road laws. 90% of crashes in sports/exotics are easily avoidable, just by sticking to the speed limit.

That is what i was trying to point out. Good point making the references and the videos certainly does show the outcome of what happens when a driver, teenager or not is behind a car that is out of their limitations.

That is true. Most of the time...these crashes occur because of recklessness even when obeying driving laws and such. Showoffs would do burnouts and cant handle the torque steer and the car will veer into oncoming traffic/people, or flyby attempts and misjudge distance when overtaking other cars...etc...

Yeah, driving normally and attempting to race are two different issues alltogether though. I would never initially practice dangerous skills In any high powered vehicle.

A good starter car for driving? I strongly believe any Honda with a manual transmission (especially something small like a Civic) would be an excellent starter car. I've driven some Hondas with manual transmissions and I must commend their efforts to make a great driving car. Honda's clutch's are so incredibly easy to use, and the throws of shifts aren't excessively long.
