    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    Impressive time for the GT given that it was on standard Pzeros. Corsas would cut it down further, though I don't think they make Trofeos that fit it.

    Still, it came out 9th out of 12 and got beaten by a Comaro and a Lexus in a best driver's car.Smiley

    Don't forget a giant Alfa sedan too...

    There is no way to measure best driver's car. It's just some weird opinion based on nothing objective. The 570S won it last year and I assure you that the 570 GT is barely any different in the real world. So a slightly softer version of last year's winner is now worse than some giant Lexus coupe and a giant Alfa sedan? Yeah, ok.

    Softer suspension wreaked havoc on the car? Gimme a break. You don't set that kind of a lap time on Pzeros in a car that has big problems.

    We all know that there is no way in hell that an Alfa sedan is more of a driver's car than a 570 GT.


    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    I would pick it over the 570s as I would think it offers a better everyday usability package. But it really lacks a proper exhaust sound. 


    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    again not worth just even taking a Peak look.....


    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    So what won GT R? 

    I would imagine:

    1. GT R

    2. 488

    4. Porsche TTS/Camaro? It is an American magazine after all.....

    This year's result will put in a negative perspective all previous contests...

    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    Yup, a giant Alfa sedan is better that legitimate sports cars and exotics cars as far as "drivers" are concerned lol


    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    I would take that Aston over anything so far...

    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    Was the 488 a customer car? That’s an amazing time from the 488.

    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    I would assume it's a customer car. Whether those tires are from a few years ago off a Speciale or whether they are new super sticky ones is another question. Note that Cup2 is not an option on the 488 from the factory.


    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    Almost 2 seconds off a GT R? Hmm

    Re: 2017 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

    Well as you can guess I love my p100d. It is also the reason I am getting a GT3. My turbo can’t keep up in the speed limits I drive in. I can’t drive my turbo on track because it’s a cab. And obviously the GT3 is much more emotional. My p100d gets me to my train station real quick - you have to admit it is an impressive straight line sedan.

    You guys are really funny with your Tesla hate. It must really hurt your feelings a lot! If it didn't why bother repeating this over and over and over and over again? Smiley
    Can't wait for the next similar post. Maybe over in the R8 thread? Smiley
