    So the vette was fastest, but finished last due to horrible interior?

    So the Z06 pretty much dusts the floor with the rest of the cars and gets 3rd place? I'm not a Corvette fan at all, but the Z06 probably should have gotten 1st place...2nd at worst.

    Sounds like there are lot of subjective factors that didn't make it into Trishield's recap.

    Because the only thing that matters, of course, are times achieved by professional drivers on a course that only a handful of drivers will ever drive.

    I got a ride in a C6Z last night and I have to say that it's an absolutely spectacular car.

    Would I love a 997 911 Turbo or an F430? Hell yes. Will I ever afford one? Nope.

    The Z06 is like the extremely smart ugly kid who gets straight a's at school but has no friends, the f430 is the cool kid who is naturally talented in the cooler classes but gets B's and looks like god.

    because, aside from an awesome drivetrain, it sucks as a people mover.

    Well, they give you the performance figures, but that wouldn't make very good reading by itself, would it? I think if you read the recaps they sum it up pretty well.

    Vette = best bargain (but with the baggage that a "bargain" entails)
    911 = sedate, best for bad weather
    Ferrari = best all around dream car

    "hey hold on I have to merge" phone down, clutch in, rev match, downshift, clutch out, WFO, merge, shift, "ok, I'm back. Where were we?" Or get a headset. not hard
