    I love how every new sports car above $50,000 is introduced with some quote from a company executive like "Porsche had better be worried about this one."

    Yes, you've all said that for 45 years. Get a new target.

    In all fairness, Bonus, Porsche typically smashes Ferrari. Why aim for something on the bottom rung? :mamoru::mamoru::mamoru:

    so it weighs more than the z06, has less power, yet still is "quicker" around the ring and 13mph faster on the top end?

    :mamoru2: sure

    I bet you still won't be able to touch one of those $60K models for for under $80K after dealers get their hands on them.
