    I would have to say the Z06 would smoke the Turbo one but in quality and looks that go to the Turbo.

    In R&T's January '01 issue, Steve Millen drove the 360 Modena and 385-hp Z06 (among other cars) around Thunderhill Park. The 360 took first, by about 7 or 8 tenths of a second over the 2nd place Z06. Third was a 550 Maranello, and the 996 Turbo finished fourth.
    Automobile Magazine tested the 360 Modena, 385-hp Z06, and 996 Turbo around Waterford Hills racetrack. The Z06 beat them both!!!!!!!!
    The Z06 is also faster than the Ferrari 360. Sport Auto did not test the Z06 at the Nurburgring, but they did test it at the Hockenheim club circuit. The Z06 got a 1:14.9 vs. 1:15.1 for the 360.

    And here's a modified comparison:

    Luck? I don't know but there are also many occasions that 911 Turbo beat the Z06 right? So we can call them dead even in performance figures but as for the looks, the braking, interior, the all around label of Porsche I think the 911 Turbo wins.

  5. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    you are going to have to get used to it, cuz the Z06 is a killa. It has superb handling and shit, and a lot of people like to tune it up. they get a lot of performance for it. and another reason is cuz the Viper was not as good at handling and stuff in the older models, but the new model is different, so you are going to start seeing it's comparisions along with the Z06

    Porsche dominates.
     
  9. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    Have a look at the latest Car & Driver Supercar Challenge. They compare the Z06, the Turbo and a Viper GTS ACR, and the Turbo comes out on top. The 996 Turbo and the Z06 post identical times for the road course (57.7 seconds), but where the Porsche asserts itself as the dominant car is in the sprint from 100 to 150 mph, and braking from 150mph to 0. 'Nuff said.

    L8R

    P.S. This is a 911 Turbo/Z06 comparo, not a 911 Turbo/Viper GTS ACR comparo, so those of you would-be Viper drivers need not post any replies to this one. That's a topic for another forum.
     
  10. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    Seriously. Porsche dominates once again.
     
  11. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    why are you posting a thread about cars that don't even belong in this forum. i think this is the CGT forum not the turbo. go post where the cars are from.
     
  12. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

  14. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    yeah well a Z06 aint too bad a car. a lot of people like to compare vipers, but then they don't cuz the viper is most of the time better.
     
  15. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    Z06 ain't bad at all and I haven't seen any SRT10 vs. that threads except in the SRT10 forums.
     
  16. Re: Corvette Z06 vs Porsche Turbo

    911 Turbo, no doubt

    gamer55- I've seen some stupid responses on this site but yo0urs is right up there with the stupidest I've seen. the ZO6 faster and quicker than the Turbo and the Modena!?!?! I think you've had you mouth attached to the exhaust pipe of your car. Thee topspeed for your beloved z06 is only 171. Ouch! I am unimpressed the the z06 and most other american "sports" cars. the topspeed for the modena is 183 and the turbo is 190. Thee z06 does 0-60 in 4.7 secs. Modena=4.3 -- turbo 4.0. check my math and get back to me....

    Actually the Z06 has a topspeed of 175 and does 60 in around 4.2 seconds.
     
  22. American z06 can't touch the turbo...Re: Corvette Z06 vs Por

    Honestly, the Z06 demands respect due to its capabilities. A lot of money was invested in the powertrain and handling of this car and it shows. The problem that I have with this comparison, it that the two cars are not really in the same class. The Porsche is a better-rounded car with superior attention to and quality of details on both the interior and exterior. The Z is close on performance, but overall, the Porsche simply outclasses the Vette.

    Thank you for someone who finally understands!
     
  24. American z06 can't touch the turbo...Re: Corvette Z06 vs Por

    I onced owned a Z06 back in February of 2002...sold it in two months. Although the car was amazingly fast and handles corners flawlessly, the quality of the vehicle is anything but flawless. The windows would occasionally rattle if I ran over potholes, shaking and creaking can be heard from the rear, and the shifter felt like a truck shifter. The car is understandably SUPPOSED to be a purist sport machine, but the "liveable, all-around" sports car image that Chevy generally attempts to convey about the Corvette cannot be associated with the Z06. After selling the car I went ahead and purchased a Porsche Carrerra 4, and if any of you have ever driven both the Z06 and the Carrerra, you can definitely feel an obvious difference in build quality and craftsmanship. By the way, if some guy just wants to argue performance, pit the Z06 against a RUF, LoL.

    My F355 would smoke both on any circuit. :)

    Please don't come to me about 0-60 time because any racer worth his bikini-clad groupie will know that don't mean shit in street races or F1. Only amateurs or drag racers do straight-line like "The Fast and the Furious" Why? Because it takes absolute no brain to go fast in a straight line. Why do you think F1 circuits are all twisty as hell? Cornering ability and braking power is king.
