    When the new Viper arrives I'm not so sure it be King, the GT2 will be here as well. However neither the Viper or GT2 is a daily drive car which the Z06 is and even more so the 997TT. To me the King is a car I can drive daily to and from work in all weather conditions and go long trips, IMO the Viper has never been a daily drive. Being an engineer that ownes a 997TT, I've always been impressed with the engineering Porsche accomplishes. How many years (since the mid 60s) have we heard that the 911 can't compete with other sports cars because of it's rear bias and small flat 6? Yet Porsche engineers seem to find a way the make the 911 better and better, and still today it is considered the icon of sports cars.

    The Viper leans heavly towards the track, the Z06 near the middle (maybe a little towards the track) and Porsche 997TT in the middle a little more towards the street (GT style).

    All are great cars where they are targeted, however I wouldn't crown the Viper King just yet. We may all get spanked by some kid in a tuned Skyline GTR someday!!

    Well said, and I can only imagine the pissing contests that will ensue here and over at Corvetteforum when the new Viper comes out.

    I don't think we'll have to be worried about some teenager in a GTR anytime soon. With a $70K price tag I doubt many of them will be able to afford it!


    The Pissing contests will ensue, It won't matter much the 08 Viper will "Smoke" The Z, end of story.

    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    Once again, your 'astute' analysis is well appreciated twinturbo

    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    3 mags have already tested the 08 viper against the Z06 and the rumour is in one of them the 08 Viper had a trap speed of 130MPH in the Quarter.You do the math.

    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    Hey if it takes an 8.4L V10 to beat my Z, have at it

    The 08 viper has 600hp, right? Isn't it logical that a 600hp viper is faster than a 510hp Z06

    How is that an excuse? So what if it beats my car...whoopee, and come to think of it wouldn't it beat both of yours as well? Aren't you the one with the Z and TT?

    It will beat both my 07Z and my 07TT. thats why I get my dodge dealers first 08 Viper. Personally I don't consider the Viper or the Z competition for my TT as its in a class by itself. I just think its funny to watch Z06 owners get all bent out of shape because there beloved Z is going to get beat by the Viper.

    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    No one is bent out of shape at all, I personally couldn't care less. There are plenty of cars out there that can beat the Z, and I seem to be getting along just fine knowing that fact.

    Gotta admit the Carrera interior is quite complicated and busy.

    However the "comfort" poster refers to in the Corvette is the same you'd sense in a Ford Taurus. Rounded, flowing, smooth: perfect like Velveeta cheese.

    The "cheapness," in materials AND DESIGN (Ford Taurus looks) of the 'vette interior makes me sick. The bizzyness of the Carrera interior is merely annoying at times (get it in black).

    Another braszen example of heresay. Mastiff your goin to the dogs

    Re: Corvette Z06 Vs. Porsche (997) Turbo

    Eureka. I figured it out. When I rent a car at the airport I get a shock the moment I sit in it. It's soooo marginal, so dumbed down, so "inexpensive" and easy to merely exist in. I recall that same feeling is what I got when dropping into the seat of a new 'vette.

    Wow already tested a car that's not out yet. Interesting. And that is some feat of engineering. Add 100hp to a car and raise it's trap speed from 118 to 130. Not gonna happen.

    That's funny because I get the same feeling from driving turbo Porsches(except the GT2). The performance is just merely there. Nothing to write home about.

    If what you say is true I must be nuts. I'll spend all that extra money and the only difference between the two cars (other than the Turbo being slow?) is the way they look on the outside. According to your added observation Corvette and Porsche have the look and feel of a Ford Taurus on the interior.


    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    Well my point was that no one has tested it since it hasn't even come out. So no one knows. It would really need about 650hp to run 130mph in the QT that is assuming it's still 3400LBS.

    Read all 9 pages of this thread.

    Re: sorry Nick - tongue in cheek

    His point is still the same, the Viper hasn't been tested yet. That said, seeing as how it has 600 hp, it better be faster than the Z and the Turbo. If not, SRT would have alot of explaining to do
