    Re: News on 997 turbo facelift

    BjoernB:

    a friend just recently attended at SPA Francorchamps race weekend and smoked with his

    Z06 pretty much everything except a Sportec 650 GT3.....various GT3 wanted a ride afterwards and were buffed afterwards of the times vs Porsche. I have to add that the breakes are not stock but new racing breaks but that are all mods. He even drove on the stock tires and not on Pirelly PZero C like the Porsches....

    As much as I love Porsches n specially the GT3's there are cars for less that are much faster than a GT3. Maybe it's because of drivers skills but having driven his Z06 I became a secret admirer of this car....it's unbelievable fast n tight around corners for less than half the price.

    All this also depends on the driver...

    With identical driver (SportAuto Supertest) the regular (old) GT3 is as fast as the Z06 on both HHR and NBR-NS. The GT3RS is faster than the Z06 on both tracks. The GT3 Mk2 is very likely to be (significantly) faster than the Z06 as well Smiley

    No argument as far as track time. However, if you value things like brake feel, steering feel, and gear box precision,  i.e. what makes owning a sports car fun, then my opinion is the Corvette Z06 has a long long way to go before it could match any 911. Mushy is the word that comes to mind. 

    I actually have a bias and would like the Corvette to do well; I would like GM to compete well on the world market. Yet I came away from my test drive of the Z06 very disappointed. Just my 2 cents.
