Exactly what I said earlier.
Interestingly, in last months Road and Track, they pitted the 286HP 3300lb Mitsu Evo versus a 295HP, 3150 lb Porsche Cayman S.
Care to guess which car was faster in both 0-60 and in track lap times?
The G35X was also found to be faster than the G35 RWD in track lap times in another test.
