Vette GS anyday - easy to get a dealer to shave off at least 10% off MSRP any day as opposed to the hair dressers 718 cayman.

Hell of a performance car at any price. Has a removal roof (carbon fiber).,performance data recorder, magride, hud display, quality world's better than any GM product before it to name a few...

Absolutely no doubt that Chevy's delivering the best bang for the buck these days...

It's undeniable that those Corvettes are just fukking monsters.

I feel like the Corvette has walked away from the GT3 in terms of performance the same way that the GT3 has walked away from the M3.

Just had my Magride calibration done (through GM) for only $350. Thank to this calibration, In addition to the car being amazing in Tour/Sport/Track modes. The steering feel in Track mode far exceeds the feel/information for the 991.1 GT3 I have driven on track.


The Corvette and Camaro are just crushing it these days.

I've been developing a collection of photos of the slow Porsches I've been stuck behind on the highways and freeways that are trying to prove you wrong on who's the slowest sports car (GT) drivers.

They reverse those positions on the track though. Vette's and GT3/4's are definitely the fastest. Guess it's just the polar opposite ownership base. Those who cherish their dream car purchase and just want to protect it, and those who love their dream car to death with wreckless abandon.

For all the stigma of Corvette drivers being the old fellas. Every single Porsche 911 GT driver I've seen at Cars&Coffee have been on average above 60.

Truth is most people under 60 are not in a position to afford a Porsche 911 product anymore. True story, the biggest dirtbag at our local C&C is a 991.1 GT3 owner who is all of 55 and brags endlessly on how great his car is. He sports a gold chain as well. Interesting reversal of owners from yore.
