  1. Never compare a viper or a z06 to a 959. You know damn well which one would come out on top. I'm not hating on any of them. I love corvettes, but I know which cars are better than them. I think the 959 is the king of street cars. 0-60 in 3.7 sec, not the viper,vette,skyline,360modena,911 turbo,supra,M3,mustang cobra R,NSX,Z8,vanquish,or esprit V8 can handle that(and lord help any FWD civics hooked to nitrous oxide). They are all great cars, but they need to step aside for the king: the Porsche 959.

    This vs. the 2003 Dodge Viper SRT/10 vs. the Corvette Z06 would be close, though.

    I love it. But it's main opposition (The Ferrari F-40) still beats it. Love it anyway.
  7. Re: (quote)

    yeah F40,I was just about to say that,lol.But I love this Porsche nonetheless.
  8. Re: (quote)

    F40 was designed to beat it, it sure got the job done!

    your a retard u just pulled a lot of sh*t out of your ass go look at the cars u listed u dumbass and plus i didnt see u mention lamborghini, bugatti, or the mclaren, an by the way the V8 esprit has the same 0-60 u #%$ so shut up!
  10. Firstly, the esprit does not have the same 0-60, but that's altogether irrelevant. Vipers and Corvettes are a dime a dozen. I see Vipers regularly, and corvettes are ubiquitous. I have been to a lot of car shows in several countries, but I have only seen one 959. The fact that it is still getting compared with contemporary cars almost 18 years later should make this comparison seem totally ridiculous. Oh, and a 959 owner wouldn't race you in your viper. He would let you race off, and then he would take your girl to his yacht, or palace...Conclusion: People who drive 959s probably aren't worried about having to prove that their car is fast.
  11. AMEN! I get so much crap on the highway... all because I drive a sportscar that nobody knows anything about (porsche 944.. some think they know, but then they destroy the thing). The other day, a dude in a minivan revved his engine at me and just took off like there was no tomorrow. Then I'm doing 60 in a 50... over the speed limit anyway and I typically don't speed much more than that because I've been pulled over and given a warning when I should have been fined $100+. So this ford f-350 decides he's gonna tail be and blink his lights before he passes me... like this US road is the autobahn?! I don't understand where people get the idea that it means anything when you pass me on a daily drive. I actually find it interesting and sort of flattering that my car inspires that kind of insecurity. I certainly don't have to prove that I'm a buffet of manliness by racing a minivan or truck, etc.. or for that matter, anyone who thinks that it matters to me. If you really want to race that bad, buy a sportscar, get educated about it, be capable/willing to maintain it, and join a club.
