    Sorry I should have made it more clear I was about 911's after 2000 which the suspension was messed about with to much. I hate what they did to them, a supercar should not be like a palace inside and have air con etc, it just add's weight. When talking about supercar's the F40 is how it should be LIGHT. the old 911's are great, I just really do not like the new one's.

    The one I was driving was an Carrera 4 (the 4 wheel drive one) This totally took the fun out of it.
    Im abit of a Purist at heart lol.

    You seem to have a real problem with prejudice:
    A few US Focuses break - All Focuses are "POSs"
    Your Dodge Caravan has a problem - All Dodges are "POSs"
    A Few ricers think a car like a Civic is a performance car - all Civic owners are "stupid ricers"

    Please; engage brain before posting.

    well, that popped up when i googled in ricer, and BTW did you ever notice the fartcan, and I know someone who Owns a Civic, and I don't think he's a ricer,

    please; make sure you got your facts straight before accusing

    Karrman, maybe the guy LIKES to have a fartcan. Maybe he's just some normal person who happens to have a riced out car. Maybe, just maybe, the guy likes how his car looks. Now do you have to go critizing every little thing he does? Do you have to accuse him of talking 7331 (leet) and say he's a moron with no knowledge of cars or anything? What did he ever do to you? Sigh... you're the one who gets all mad whenever someone flames you...

    My personal choice would be either a Mercedes Benz M-Class. has limited offroad capability but is popular beyond reason, it's a truck with a Mercedes Grille, your better off going the whole hog and just buying a Mercedes Benz Lorry.
    i agree my friend bought one and broke down in just 1 and a half monthes

If I had the money to buy one would I ... no I would rather buy a Caterham super 7 CSR.

    I also hate Skyline, ricer's love them .... they look like their been painted with glue drove into halford's shop window and everything has stuck to it, Its awful ! The GTR is a good car I used to like it very much, as JC once said "its a super sonic bus".The thing that has put me off it is that Nissan is looking after it's ricer market, The Prototype GTR is once again a nice looking car, I just really hate the R34 and the R33. The R32 was a gem of a car much like the Lotus Carlton (Which I love with a passion). The other thing with the Skyline (mainly the R34) is the fact that ricer go around saying that you can get them up to 1500 BHP..... wait a min am I missing something here ? Why in god's name would you want a 1500BHP car (if its ture) to drive on the public road ? Take it to a drag tracking race or rockenham raceway !

    Well that puts a end to my rant lol sorry about over running it a bit.

    I don't think it is possible to overrate 911's....Just kiddin' but come on...I think the mose overrated car (when it first came out) was theFord Cougar like in 1997 or something. Everybody thought the car was an average performance car, whn in fact in performs worse than your avaerage sedan!
    Mustangs/ TVRs, M3s, 911 Turbos...make me smile from ear to ear...everything else..just makes me smile.

    lol agreed, runner up would be a viper, and any ferrari almost

    most of what you pay for is the badge just like a bmw, only reason i like ferrari and hate bmw is cuz ferrari knows this and admits it, you're buying the ferrari experience the prestiege and heritage that comes with it, you can get a trackday car just as fast for the same price as an s2000 and since supercars are never built for practicality i dont see the point of having a 6 litre v12 and a carbonfiber body while a radical with a motorcycle engine will be faster

    and the winner is.....

    The most overrated car is any car that the owner thinks it is what it is not! Too many idiots out there thinking they have a fast car and it would be lucky to do the quarter mike in 14 flat or go 135mph. All types of cars could fit the profile. It's really the drivers that are overrated. Not enough humility and reality.
    As far as the viper goes, it surprizes me that people list it as overrated. I don't own one and never will but you could buy a 2 year old one and have a car that will go high 11's in the quarter and go over 190mph. It will corner at least as good as set up cars like Saleens and Roushes and blow most Anything under 150 grand away. In fact, not too many cars at any price could post drag, top end, braking, and cornering numbers like it without changing anything on the car. You can get a new one for 80k or a used low mile one just as fast for 50k. For another 15 or 29k you can give it 900 horse power and then look out. What foriegn car for 100k could even come close? I AM proud that it is American.

    Take a Viper against a hard-core track car like a Caterham or Ariel Atom. I like it, alot, but a Noble M12 GTO......60k for that? I'd take the Viper.

    Over Rated.

    Mclaren F1 has yet to be beaten in the supercar stakes for it's combo of Drive/Desire/Manueverability.

    So i guess it's fine to call something like that over rated; who will really get to drive it and discount the idea?

    As for the Supra. God yes. IT'S A BIG HEAVY COUPE, NOT THE RICER SAVIOUR!

    i said something to the same friend the other day about how a BMW inline six is more renownd and will outlast the rb26dett...needless to say, he didnt take that well

    lets see nissan bore out an rs200 engine and put it in the skyline, that would be a show

    everyone is in love with the skyline engine, "i want to put the rb26dett in a 240sx, that would be cool"...give me a break..."they rate it at 276, but it comes stock with 350 horsepower" really? only took what...direct port injection, intercooler, and TWO turbo chargers.....what an accomplishment...."we couldnt make an n/a regular engine with 350hp, so we are going to put two big ass turbo's in it"...yeah, you guys know how to build a sports car
