Porsche Carrera Gt will NEVER beat the GT40 it!!!

Discussion in '2002 Ford GT40 Concept' started by EliteWolverine, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Also, Porsche has very little experience in larger engines, I hope it'll be reliable. Maybe a slightly larger variant of their flat 6 would have been better.
     
  2. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Yeah? And the Mc. F1 can likely out perform this at the Nring too. Who cares? They are not realy competing. This kicks the living hell out of the Boxster S. No one cares about that either. Now guess why.

    This does compete in terms of price with the 911 Turbo and to a lesser extent the GT2, and it will be quite the contest between them IMHO. I think this will have a power to weight advantage, but Porsche has basicly perfected the 911 formula lately, with the C4S. So for driving dynamics, the 911 will probably have the advantage. Only thing to be sure of is that it will fun to watch.

    Don't compare this piece of shit ford with any Porsche loser.

  4. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Ford sucks any ford even this wannabe supercar,haha!!!

    Imports rule!
     
  5. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    It would be nice to have one, but the gt40 is a classic.
     
  6. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    WOW! You are all geniuses.
    First off subject comment is that I hate Mustangs. (just wanted to get that out)

    Now, back to my subject, seeing as we have no REAL figures on EITHER vehicle (including price), all replies in this thread are complete and total speculation. You can look at Hp/weight and Torque/weight all you want; but, that doesn't exclude things like gear ratios, tire choice, test facility, or any of the other factors that need to be taken into consideration. Porsche formerly used more than just six cylinder engines. If you dig into history, there are twelve cylinder engines. The Ford GT has about as much history as a non-six cylinder engine by Porche. The GT40 was around thirty years ago not anytime recently. The only place Ford could really gather ANY mid engine information is from the Saleen S7. What other Ford vehicles have mid or rear engine layouts in the past twenty years?

    Doesn't that make this whole thread opinion and not reality?
     
  7. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Non 6 cylinder Porsches have plently of history. Unfortunately they've never made a large displacement V10 (that I can remember)
     
  8. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    I like what you are pionting out in that comment. I agree there are very ignorant people on here especially the user "Antidomestic". But I have to piont out one thing you said in that comment that was wrong. Ford has made two cars that I can think of right now after the GT40 that have a mid-engine drive train. The GT70 and the GT90. Yes they were concepts but it still counts. BTW I like seeing people on here that actually have brains and are not biased.
     
  9. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Khari, you got my point but missed it at the same time. I was saying that Porsche has used more than just flat six-cylinder engines, just not anytime recently that I can remember. Ford hasn't made the GT40 since the early 70's at the latest. Concepts like the GT70 and the GT90 don't really count too much because as I recall (not for sure but off of memory) don't really count to me because of the fact they were never sold on the market nor were they really tested and built.
     
  10. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Carrera Gt would be faster.

    Damn, you are gay. GET AWAY FROM ME! Us straight people do not associate with you horny homos.
     
  12. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    yea well the carrera gt costs half a mil and this car will be about 100k. so the question is, the carrera gt is a good car but is it 5x the car the ford is? I don't think so.

    what a stupid comment - everyone knows that the higher the performance gets the smaller the mvoes forward u get per dollar. is a viper 10 times better than an astra - no it is not. is a 360 modena
    three times better than a viper, no. is an M3 twice as good as a 330 -no. the cheapest car will almost always be the better value if u look at it in this way.
    the stats posted for the carrera Gt are wrong also. the carrera GT has consistnently been lapped the nurburgring under 7:30, when the viper beats that i will shut up. u yanks need to get some perspective.
     
  13. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    ok well u arnt sounding as stuck up as before but its things like when u diss another contrys cars that is when it just becomes stupid. hell i agree the porshe carrera gt would win that is not what i am arguing about. but when u say that the gt40 is a good car sure u are no souding normall but then u go along and say "expecailly for an american car!!" that just completely thoughs any signs of intelagence out the window. and trust me i am not just some stuck up american cos well im from a place most amercans have never heard of (New Zealand) but yes once again i do beleive the gt would win but value for money the ford will by far win.
     
  14. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    **** if u dont like ford why the hell are u hear sure everyone is good at something u just seem to be good at being a comlete dick head so go beck where u came from cos knowone cares what u think so pull your head out u arse and start posting sensible posts not shit like civics rule fords sux hell i like civics but u can not compare and no a civic whould not beat even a falcon

    sorry about just he is really starting to piss me off
     
  15. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    When you guys see more stupid post done by that moron, PM the thread to me and I'll take care of it.

    Thanks for your co-operation.
     
  16. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    hey anti-domestic, shut ur biased ass up. ur the type of hipocritic person who would look at a car, says it's awsome, then change your opinion to "it sucks" when you find out it is an american car or "domestic" in your case. import cars are not at the right hand of god and i think you underestimate american cars a little too much. take the f50, an import, and probably one of your favorotes im sure. the f50 i believe would beat the gt40 just barely. but look at the price ranges you moron. the f50 is around 350k i believe while the gt40 will be around 100k. take another 250k for upgrades on the gt(incase you can't count they would be at 350k even)and im positive the gt would leave the f50 in the dust. i don't care where a car comes from, the f50 is one of my fav's too. but your statements have no argument whatsoever and you can't even back up what you say.

    and if ur such a ford hater, then why the #$%# are you in the ford forums? go boast your biased statements somewhere else.

  18. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    hey antidomestic, do you ever stop talking shit? kinda funny how you've made 1300 odd posts yet have neutral karma. seems that others seem to think your arse is getting the greater chance as well, matey. I'm sure your wonderful sense of loyalty to whatever convinces you that your skanky 1980's honda is better than every car man has ever made tells you that this thing's shit, but i'd like to see you get your spotty arse off the computer and make a better one. At least stop licking Porsche's balls. Yup, they make good cars, but so do ford. that's why they won so much in the sixties, and the mustang was and is one of the best selling cars ever, up wit hte mini, bettle and stuff like that. tell you what, go #$%# yourself. maybe then you'll be too full to talk for a few minutes.
     
  19. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    I totall agree with you..
    I think this car i one of the most beautiful cars in the world..NO ferrarri can ever be this beautyful <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    you have real problems man the gt 40 beat out all imports in the 24 hr lemans. and now with the better numbers(hp) and a much lighter car it would spank it even more. judging by your screen name im guessing you live in the us, so show some support for your country. i love ferraris and porches dont down the father of mass production henry ford. jesus man civics are gay.

  22. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    this is how they compair;
    the GT40 vs the Porsche C-GT

    top speed:porsche
    Handling:porsche
    track times:porsche
    1/4 times:porsche
    looks:porsche
    luxary:porsche
    0-60:porsche
    reliability:porsche
    price:GT40

    better car: PORSCHE!


    this was a bad compairson, maybe if you compaired it to the GT2, then the ford would stand a chance, but there

    top speed:GT2
    handling:GT2
    track times:GT2
    1/4 times:GT40
    looks:GT2
    luxary:GT2
    0-60:GT2 (they GT3 has been clocked, stock at 3.6sec. this website is wrong)
    reliability:GT2
    Price:GT40

    so GT2 vs the GT40 is closer, but still the GT2 kicks the GT40's ass

    so, lets go lower on the Porsche poll.

    GT40 vs 911 turbo.

    top speed: turbo (192MPH)
    handling: turbo
    track times: turbo (but very close)
    1/4 times: GT40
    looks:turbo
    luxary:turbo
    0-60:GT40
    reliability:turbo
    price:tie.

    wow, the GT40 comes really close to the 911 turbo...

    here, i'll make it EZ on the ford,
    GT40 vs boxster S

    top speed:GT40
    handling:Boxster
    track times:GT40
    1/4 times:GT40
    looks:boxster
    luxary:boxster
    0-60:GT40
    reliability:boxster
    price:boxster

    GOOD JOB FORD! the ford GT40 is almost up to the level of the boxster S, now it's only half the price, but still, if ford cut the price in half and gave it a hair better handling, then the GT40 would be in the same class as the boxster S
     
  23. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    The GT got lighter? If, by that, you mean it put on about 800lbs than yeah, it got lighter. The race cars weighed 2200-2300 lbs.
     
  24. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    Gee, you're not biased at all, are you? Despite how many times you've certainly tested and driven the Ford GT, I'm pretty sure you're in no position to judge the handling and reliability of a car that hasn't even hit production yet. Do you honestly believe the 911 turbo will pull lower lap times? Well, we're all allowed to dream, but keep in mind the turbo seems very good at putting up similar lap times to the Z06, slower on occasion. Now, unless Ford's marketing staff ride the short bus to work, they won't want Chevy's 50k Z06 to be running laps even within a second or two. I think you can figure it out from there.
     
  25. Re: Porsche Carrera Gt would whoop it!!!

    This car is going to be faster than the 2003 viper. GT40 will be faster.
