They're fast, duh!

J/K, but that is one thing. The turbo on the 2.2 is pretty quick. And they're easy to mod! But with the higher compression of the GL, I can't wait to turbo mine, mwahahhhhhhhh:) Not any time soon though...

Also 4 wheel disk brakes.

The GT version of the Probe/MX6 is alot more durable then the LX/DX models. The tranny and motor internals are stronger. Plus have oil coolers and you can extract alot of HP from them for very low $$$. While adding more power to another car would be very expensive. Dude to rebuilds and strengthenings of the drive line.
