    Seems a lot of corvette owners troll the porsche sites, must be an identity crisis, hmmm , maybe its not having the badge. Guy I know has a Z06, says his car is a "hollin muthah" , nuff said I guess.



    Alot of people browse other car forums, its fun if you appreciate cars and not badges. You know I think there is a badge forum out there though, you might want to check it out, www.carbadgeforum.com. I hear you can even debate with the hood emblem guys over which is better, 2D or 3D.

    Maybe it IS not having the badge

    Tried the link , did not work, irrelevent though, seeing as to what happened in the stock market today, Im off to the used Kia forums, since thats about all I can afford now.

    Chapse,
    It was a joke brother, I made it up. Just busting chops, thats all

    Re: 2008 Z06 SS vs GT3

    I'm a Vette owner who has owned 3 Porsches, 1 Ferrari, 2 Vipers, 1 Lotus Elise, and almost everything else since I started driving in 1966. I belong to a number of car forums. I find that I own one marque for a while, and then am drawn to the strengths of another for a while and so on. My current sports car ride is an 07 C6 Coupe. If you haven't driven the new Vettes, you might be surprised. Very good cars. Which doesn't mean that I'm not currently thinking of buying a 360 Modena or a Porsche GT3. I just think that the difference these days is more in the "feel" you want from the different marques, and less the overall quality. 996s have engine problems and RMS issues, Vettes have rear end issues and flying roofs, my Ferrari had engine out tune ups.......come to think of it, the Lotus Elise with the 190 hp Toyota engine and just about nothing in it other than engine, might be the best built : - )

    Re: 2008 Z06 SS vs GT3

    I just sold my '06 Z06 I owned for 8 months. Before that i raced a modified honda s2000. I too have owned a couple porsches, but it was years ago. I loved the honda. you couldn't prise it off the road. But it was never very fast. I bought the vette and it tore the road up. But, the oversteeer, and the REALLY harsh ride coupled with the poor plastic interior just made me unhappy with the car. On the track, it was stable enough. The torque on the street kept my wife screaming.

    When I test drove the 07 c2s i have orderedd, I smiled again. Porsche, for me, is the best of all worlds. It has enough top end speed, the drivability is great, the interior is what i wanted. so, I think we should experience them all by having what we have now PORSCHE. PERIOD

    I don't think it's snobbery. But if it is, who cares? Different sub-groups in any culture will all exhibit their own form of exclusiveness (snobbery).

    I'm just making this up for illustration: There are probably guys with Dodge Ram trucks who think they're better than "losers" in Ford F150 trucks.

    Pull up at certain bars in a Porsche and the women will ignore you. Pull up at that same bar with a 'vette and you'll get alot of positive attention.

    Go figure.

    Just be sure of the message you want to send, to the sub-groups you care about, by carefully choosing the _public_ gestures you make.

    Red Porsche with wings, grey 997, Black corvette with loud modded exhaust, Dodge Ram truck, Pink cadillac; Harley or Kawasaki, all send out different messages.


    That's your problem right there. You talk about what type of message your sending with your car. It's a sports car!! To be driven. It's not a versace purse for christs sake. Yeah i've had the Ferrari that stops thecrowds and frankly it was much more fun when I was alone in a tunnel or on a back country road by myself. Too many of you guys priss around in your Porsches like they were show ponies. You guys don't carry those man purses as well do you?
