Can anyone offer a comparison of a GranSport’s handling to a Skyhook Coupe with an aftermarket suspension upgrade, such as Formula Dynamics springs? I’m in the market for a coupe and trying to make a choice – not likely I will be able to test-drive these two configurations.

The Gransport is only 5% stiffer than the standard coupe. We sell the same spring for both the coupe and GS which give you a much improved handling package. I would not purchase the GS for handling, a coupe with our springs will far outhandle a stock GS. The GS is a good car and we recommend it highly because it has improved wheels, a slight power advantage and top speed advantage, body kit, etc...

Whichever way you go, be sure to get the skyhook option so you have the ability to upgrade later. Besides it's a great feature.

When was the GranSport introduced? I dont' see them on the market all that often and when I do, they seem to be more recent model years. I'm in the market for a pre-2006 coupe, mostly because of the lower asking prices, particularly with the '04 or earlier models.

gransports were offered in 2005 and 2006. most people recommend purchasing a later year coupe since they have fewer bugs, good luck.
