    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    Don't want to bash the Z06, but they chose the right color for it in this comparison

    That gt2 is mighty fast , i wonder how my Ruf turbo would do againts them

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    FWIW, there was this TV documentary showing the assembly of the ZO6. One inattentive guy just slapped the rear window in almost without looking. Other scene showed engine going in but not before a pair of hoses dragged on floor and then hooked on some apparatus before a retarded staff thought enough to untangle them. Same pair of long hoses with crimped fittings seemed to have no protective caps on their ends as they dragged along. Was startling how sloppy and sleepy the assembly seemed to be. Wild!

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    The most idiotic test ever.

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    AMAZING test! well its not the best car to compare with the Z06, but is always good see a PORSCHE beating a vette.

    one thing that i have never saw is 997TURBO X Z06 this should be very nice!

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    Although GT2 is a fantastic car but let's not underestimate the upcoming ZR1. ZR1 and GT2 would be more of an apple to apple test. supercharged vs. turbo charged.

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    The GTR will crush both

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    I agree, the GTR will crush both as it will not be able to clear the highway quickly enough to let Z06/GT2 pass ...

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    That guy can't drive.

    Who, Chris Harris? I think you'll find he's not bad behind the wheel at all.

    [edit]

    Watch Steve Sutcliffe have a go at the Honda F1 car. He phenomenally well.

    Also FWIW the official performance numbers between the Z06 and GT2 are not that far apart. Those on other boards familiar with Z06, said though the GT2 may be faster the difference in the two cars CLEARLY indicate the Z06 was not driven correctly nor performing up to standards.

    Harris himself expressed puzzlement because he initially thought after driving the two cars separately (prior to the race)that the Z06 was "a little quicker". He also confirmed that the official perf. numbers on the two cars did not warrant the huge spread between the cars.

    BE that as it may, the ZR1 will make things right and for a $100,000 less.

    Re: 997 GT2 vs Vette Z06 - video!!!

    GTR sucks! I would not want to be caught driving an ugly machine as that, poor taste.
