you would if you were a decent driver, but why don't you go out and find out and report the results.

'91 Celica GT...you shouldn't have any problems beating it.

That Celica is powered by the 5S-FE, the same engine found in the Camry and the U.S.-spec MkII MR2. Honestly, that is a POS engine...very lethargic (130 hp @ 5400 rpm, 140 lb-ft @ 4400 rpm) and not suited for anything sporty. It probably feels faster because it's a lot lighter than the IS300 (~2600 lbs. vs. ~3200 lbs).
