      Unless you plan racing competitively, comparing what time a car can do is just penis measuring.

      I still prefer the GT3 RS to the ZR1, but thats an entirely subjective opinion and not about numbers. The ZR1 is a beast, but the ZO6 is 90% the ZR1 for a steep discount.

      Congrats on driving the ZR1, it's a gem for sure.

      I just think its a little silly to make fun of a refined reliable Porsche because its a "modded beetle".

      Im no hater, I love everything about American cars being great sports cars because one day I will afford one. But shooting down an 911 is just plan stupid, faster doesnt make it better.

      Had a C5 Z06. Sold it to buy a C6 Z06. Got a ride in a ZR1 and only wish I could have drove it!!!

      If money was no object i'd have the vette and the souped up beetle but since I don't **** cash...its a vette. Running cost of a Porsche is just stupid. From insurance to parts your overpaying all the way. Love the GT3 and my favorite would be a Black 993 Turbo but since my name is not Chris Harris I'd pick the Vette every time.

      And remember who won Lemans gt classes...

      And really. Lets settle once and for all. The 911 is a more evolved Beetle. Don't believe me...

      Here is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_911

      Porsche 911 classic was developed as a much more powerful, larger, more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356, the company's first model.
      And then from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_356

      The 356 was created by Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche (son of Dr. Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company). Like its cousin, the Volkswagen Beetle (which Ferdinand Porsche Senior had designed), the 356 was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive car utilizing unitized pan and body construction.
      Sorry but its true....

      Being a 911 also doesn't make it better, like half you self-proclaimed Porschephiles on here think. The 911 is a great car, an excellent one...but it certainly isn't the be-all, end-all of performance sports cars. I've looked at various models 3 different times and they have yet to fully catch my attention...I find them slightly boring for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. Even the turbo was subdued compared to the GT-R. YMMV.
