    Don't be a hater!

    The Voyager had a 3L Mitsubishi V6 with 141 hp. It had about as much grunt as the Golf. I loved my baby - even though it was my parents.

    Because it's a Corvette. The balding middle aged men who drive them would be fuming if there weren't enough cheapy chrome.

    I doubt it has as much punch as supercharged hot hatch, though.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    I was kidding. It's a slow PoS. As I've mentioned before, the Focus is much more fun to drive.

    the thing's hideous, the body kit looks ricer, the hood is awful, cheesy engine cover.

    i think the wheels look alright though
    I don’t think I could disagree more. The hood is a little taller than that of the Z06, but that’s due to its having to clear the intercooler atop the motor. And, based on past encounters, a Viper is likely to be a truck by comparison.

    They did paint it, the additive they used in the clear-coat for the carbonfibre costs $60,000 a gallon.

    It’s much, much faster.

    I agree to a point, but Chevy are trying to offer a 620-650bhp, total performance car, for around $100,000, and the interior is still leagues ahead of a Vipers, and not that far behind a Porsche. It’s not perfect, but in supercar terms you’d be hard pressed not to admit it’s a bit of a bargain.

    In initial quality, a Porsche is still loads better, as time goes on, the gap increases exponentially. Just for reference, I do have a GMC, and after 8 years the interior is a piece, as much as I love it, there's no denying that. The Americans have made alot of improvements as of late, but they're still in about 1995 in Germany.

    Not saying I wouldn't love to drive one, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

    Is the interior card the only one you know how to play?

    i actually don't find anything special about the 997 and 996 interiors at all...

    Nothing special in design of course, but the materials and build techniques used are far superior to GM's.

    Yes. And correct me if I'm wrong but it's where you spend most of the time in the car. Not enough of a difference surely to justify the $30,000 difference in this and a 997 Turbo, but something worth mentioning, for sure.

    I'd play the "the engines on the wrong side of the car" card.

    Oversteer FTL. I repeat: the 911 would be a far superior animal if they moved the engine a few feet forward.

    Yeah, you wouldn't have a 911 anymore.

    I've always wondered what would happen when you dump a 911 GT3 engine into a Cayman.

    It'd be a nice combination, that's what it would be.

    I'd bet RUF would do that for me if I had the money for it.
