Re: Carrera GT versus 03 whipple cobra

wow id be so pissed at myself if I bought a carrera GT for $440,000 MSRP and got beaten by a $28,000 + $3,000 worth of mods (probably less lol)

Amazing.

rofl

I'd take the video with me back to the dealership and go "You see this? Something is wrong with the car. Give me back my money so I can buy a Cobra and whoop this guy."

Re: Carrera GT versus 03 whipple cobra

yes, but who gets more *****? The guy in the $440,000 car or the guy in the $40k car??


Also, who is going to go around the Nurenburgring quicker? I'll give you a hint, it starts with Por and ends with -sche. Germans don't care about the 1/4mi

Re: Carrera GT versus 03 whipple cobra

I might be more realistic If the guy with the camera was in the Cobra.

Meh, I personally don't need a 6 figure car to get me *****, or any car to get me *****. I get cars I like, not what girls like.

Well, I don't live in Germany, nor am I interested in shallow gold-digging whores, so the Cobra is what I would take.

Yeah, but when you race the 40K dollar car, then find you both have to make a full speed hard turn...i wonder who will be able to make the turn?

It's a testament to the awesome straight-line-performance vs. cost ratio of American V8 powered cars. I still think that all you people who claim that you'd rather have the Cobra are crazy.

Exactly, who wouldn't rather have a Carerra GT over a cobra? I would personally take a normal 911 carerra over a cobra. Sure it may not be quicker in the 1/4, but it is much more refined and it is still plenty quick enough.

I may have grown out of the "I need a 10 second car" crap due to owning the evo, but ever since then, I look at suspension as well as engine. When I was on the track, there was a carrera GT and some Ferraris I was racing against in my evo. I was able to stay near them eventhough my driving wasn't as good as theirs because of my engine and suspension. Had I been a better driver, I would have been able to pass them as some of the other evos did. There was also an 03 cobra out with us. I was lapping him. He couldn't carry speed thru the corners like the rest of us.

I just look at more practical driving lately. There are turns on your normal roads. There are bumps on the roads. You need a car that can turn as well as go straight.

Just my 3 cents

Re: Carrera GT versus 03 whipple cobra

I wouldnt say Im loyal to ford, or that the mustangs performance and handling make me want one, its more than that.

The following of the mustang is MASSIVE its freaking huge, no other car group is like it, or even close. I know its not the fastest, or the best handling, or anything, its all about the people that own them that make me want one.

I dont need a super over expensive trophy car to show off "look at me" in, Ill take the american muscle and be done with it be it GM or Ford (dodge sucks)

Re: Carrera GT versus 03 whipple cobra

If i had one, i wouldnt have it for the "look at me" factor, i get enough looks from people, and most people wont race me in my Tbird, so a Porsche wouldnt be any differnet. Id have one for the handling and braking more than the power. Have any of you driven a mid engine car? I drove an MR2, just a little MR2, and the handling was so much better than any stock front engine, rear wheel drive car ive ever driven. Imagine a car BUILT for performance, with big brakes, some big tires, a huge amount of power, on a balanced chassis...yeah...

you can take your cobra's all you want, but youll NEVER match the driving experience of a Porsche
