The acceleration greatly depends on what trim/model you are driving.
The base model doesnt even make 200hp while the highest trim 30r-se makes 320hp and over 300lbs of torque. I have owned the 30r-se sedan and I have no doubt in my mind that the car can run low fourteens. It could run down just about any sedan of its day.
