Well not as many times as you obviously, just a couple times at Mosport DDT with the M3 guys. I do of course participate fully in online discourse on the matter as well.Hang on a sec, Vise, how many times have you been to a track? Edit: Never mind, I don't even know what's been debated about in here. Do we like Porsches or not?
Back on subject... don't discount the F30 328i, although it doesn't make the best noises that turbo four makes a ton of power/torque and of course the 3 series is a lovely driving car. Not as nice as the E90 generation but I'm biased.if not. i'll have to get something else. maybe Mazda 3. maybe i'll join the wanker ranks and get a bmw (328 touring).
I think people looking for a legitimate sports car would cross shop the two for sure. If you're buying a 911 as a status symbol as most tend to do then you're correct though.I'd be curious to know how many people who want, and can afford, a 911, would opt for the current vette. My guess would be very very very few, probably 5% or less.
The new Z06 is going to be ridiculous, if the power figures are true it will be on par with the prior ZR1. I was never a fan of the previous gen Corvette but the new Stingray is pretty legit. I'd expect the Z06 will be 911 Turbo levels of performance for half the price.I would! For a z06 of course. Or the eventual yet unannounced zr1.
