I concur...

Now I'm tempted to post that link up on the CrownVic and Cobalt forums and watch the outrage fly :hehe: ...

Oh god....

3700lb porsche?!?!?!

Dude... I still want one, but i would strip that sucker until it was under 3000lbs at least..

<EDIT>
4000lbs for the GTR?!?!?

Fuck that.

I don't care how awesome it is... if i'm driving something with that much weight, it better have a HUGE big block in it, or be a truck of some kind.

Performs sweet, looks like poop. I'd rather own the z06. Well, I'd rather own the Porsche but the pricetag is more ridiculous than the other two's ridiculousness.

Did you miss that the car with the 7.0 litre v8 with more horsepower and much lighter overall was barely faster in the 1/4 mile and the same 0-60?

Didn't miss it.

Still hate weight.

It's an amazing piece of engineering, and i'm in awe that they got a 4000lb pig to perform like that, it's truly amazing.

I will never own one or want to own one.

I'm not going to tell you all that you shouldn't want one, because it's perfectly understandable as to why you would. But i don't want one. I'd rather have an Elise or even an AE92 GT-S than this.

How about a Se7en with an LS7 or badass SR20det?

That would be frickin' scary. I would not touch a Se7en with an LS7. If I got behind the wheel I know I would die. I'd probably get 3rd-degree burns on my ass just sitting in the passenger seat...

To each their own. I guess I'd rather have the heavier car if it performs as well or better. I figure, if I get to have the performance too, why not have the higher safety of the heavier car? I would LOVE to have a lotus, but I wouldn't kid myself thinking I'm as safe in it as a tankier car like oh.. a supra.. or skyline in this case ;)

The only reason I don't like weight typically is the performance issues, but if you can have both? Why not?

It is a heavy mother, but I'd still take and love it. Unlike a Lotus or Z06, I could drive it in the rain or snow. Oh well, just wait for the V-spec edition, they're supposed to be shaving some weight off and adding some ponies. Maybe so it'll run with the new ZR1...

Agreed as well... but not at the expense of how the car feels, to me.

Sure, heavier cars feel safer, more planted, for the most part.

But i would rather have nimble and go-cart feeling.

An E36 3-series is about as heavy as i personally can still be entertained with. The whole weight thing is why i actually LIKE hondas. When they're running. And not breaking.
