Thanks to PDK with launch control and all wheel drive (yea the 500 ponies helps too)! To be honest the straight line numbers are nice but I prefer the balance and refinement.Yeah, that latest issue of Car and Driver has the Porsche 911 turbo at 0-60 in 2.9s and 11 flat in the quarter - unbelievable!!
Was that a $150,000 Corvette?I've owned a Corvette. I have a 2010 911 Turbo. I have had several Corvettes, Ferraris and a Lambo up against me on a track from a start. I'm unbeaten! There is nothing like the 2010 911 Turbo. The quality of the 911 is far superior in every way. I wish I had never wasted money on an inferior Corvette. Fortunately I sold it off!
Assuming your time is worth something......that cuts into that "bang for your buck" argument a bit.I owned a new C5 for 24 months. When I turned it in I counted 22 Shop tickets where I had to bring it in for repair. what a lemon. Have not had a single problem with my 2008 C2S.
It may be a heck of a lot performance but you get what you pay for with a Corvette. Which is a lack of quality craftsmanship around a powerful engine. Corvettes are a dime a dozen. I wish I had driven a Turbo before I bought the Corvette. Lesson learned.Was that a $150,000 Corvette?
You have to admit that for the price, a Z06 is a heck of a lot of performance.
Porsche knows the mid-engine platform is the fastest around the track, followed by front engine. Economics and Tradition keeps the obsolete rear engine platform in production.I love both Corvettes and Porsches. But what everyone forgot to mention, was the ZR1, yet slower to 0-60 and in the 1/4 mile. The ZR1 is faster on the track!!!! WOW!! times have changed. It has always been that the Vette would be faster and the Porsche better handling and out did the Vette at the track. Now the #'s have changed.
