I'll definitely be picking another one up at some point in the hopefully not so distant future. It was one of the best cars I've owned, without a doubt.
I think I'm going to get my 335i to save some money for a house, then once I get one, I'll probably start building a classic. I love American muscle type cars, but my true love is in the classics.

I'm kind of disappointed by the Z06, but I agree with everyone else, I'd like to see a rematch between the GT2 and ZR1, and while they're at it, through in the GTR

Based on the MT test (faster in figure 8 test than CGT or Enzo), and the way it pulled on that Z06, the V-spec/Evo GTR would probably be a better match.

You can do whatever you want to the Z06, but at the end of the day it is still a Chevy.

This is just stupid. The corvette c6 ls3 is probably the best performance car for the money. You can put in $5K and have a easy 600RWHP on pump gas. Oh and with the new interiors the quality isnt too far off of our beloved BMW 3 series.

Look in my garage... guess you could just call that just a Ford LOL. Grow up. Brand snabs are annoying.

what's to be disappointed about?? That it got beat by a $190,000 car? I'm impressed that a car mag had to find a car that costs almost 3X as much to beat it.

What the hell... I just saw your car list. I hate you. You have my dream car, and not the GT500 either.

But yeah, my car is just another Ford too. We're redneck hillbillies with buck teeth who have sex with our cousins for having Fords... didn't you know that?

Edit: Trade 03 Cobra for 69 Boss?! It's worth a try, hahaha.

You can sell the GT500, idc, but hang on to the Boss until I win the lottery so I can buy it.

Hehe. I might sell it soon (the boss) Im still deciding. Its hard to part with a car that can pickup the front tires OFF the ground easily.

I'd hang onto to it for a while longer. In 10 years, it'll be worth even more, IMO.

If it's anything like the last GT2, that isn't true. There are several running around with 700-900 on pump with stock internals.

This was originially a plain turbo, but it's the same basic engine:


Same car vs 1200cc bike:


The Porsche turbo cars get STUPIDLY fast with modifications.

That's got to be the "slowest" Z06 I've ever seen tested. I'm not exactly sure that happened there. These cars are insanely fast and I can attest, it does just over 60mph in 1st gear. I'm sure there'll be a rematch somewhere. No doubt, the GT2 is one fast car, but the ZR1 will be faster for sure.

Oh, this is mine.
