    997-S vs Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

    Good Day,

    Just got back from 'lunch meeting' with good friend who purchased a Cadillac CTS-V coupe. Nice car !

    GM state 3.9 in 0-60. 190 mph top end.  My friend went on about "wiping" my butt with his new carSmiley.  I have a 2006 CS...stock but, high proform tires and upgrade on suspension elements.   Don't have any issue with his nice sports sedan,,,but, would like to collect inputs (ie: g force, straight track vs real tracks, claims from GM, braking,,,,etc.).   His big claim was getting to top much faster than the P car.....as he has gotten caught up in his new love.

    Thoughts ??

    Stay Cool.......

    Your car is more satisfying to drive, but his car is faster on the dragstrip or the Nurburgring (though the brakes and tires would probably be screaming after a few laps).  Carrera's are not about performance numbers alone - they are more about the experience of driving (great feel and involvement).  A Corvette is faster in every performance category for less money, but they don't feel like a 911.

    Grant,

    Thanks for the comments. Agree, that the P-car is The drivers car.  Not sure about the collection of corvettes vs the collection of porsches at a grand pre type of track (.."...faster in every category....") competition.    I like my friends car,,,,as good as you can get in performance sport sedan......but, to your point..... not apple to apple comparison.

    Would not mention it to him, but, I doubt he has the skill set to get the performance the car offers (like many of us).  

    Stay cool ( 110 heat index here in 'cool' minnesota)

    Re: 997-S vs Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

     How's the fit and finish of the Caddy?  I've always been under the impression that although a Vette is faster than a Carrera, it doesn't have the same quality of interior, or even overall build quality.  However, I'm just a student and can't afford either car...yet.
