    360 modena. 911 turbo, bmw z8 id take the modena first i just love the modena, Its power is about same but has slightly better performance stats and higher top speed. Then this. The 911 turbo has close performance then the 911 also has a beatiful line (although the 360 is the most beatiful in my opinion). The z8.. well its a nice roadster it performs comparable with a stock corvette.<!-- Signature -->

    Porsche is a nice car, but gets beaten out by the BMW and ferrari. The ferrari is the roadgoing race experience. The BMW puts you in a dream with it's 60's retroness and engine sound and torque. I'd take the BMW over the modena because it offers all that the modena has (although the ferrari is racier), with more style and torque and a lower price. Yes i knoe the 911 is the cheapest here. The Z8 is better compared to the 360 spider, being a convertible. Again, i'd take the z8, being cheaper and this time quicker (o-60 in 4.2 vs. 4.6 or 4.5 depending on which magazine).

    you guys dont know what your talking about. 911 turbo all the way fastest 0-60 time (3.9 seconds), all wheel drive, and highest skidpad rating so you can actually use that speed. choice is easy enough for me. oh yea and it cost less

    1)360 Modena- top performer in the pool
    2)BMW Z8- best looks pool, and performs better than the 911 Turbo
    3)911 Turbo- Comes in last place but heck, look at it's competition.<!-- Signature -->

  12. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    the 360 modena comes first because it looks best and has best preformanse, the porsche 911 turbo (996) comes second allso because it has good preformance and it looks better to, and the Z8 comes last because it looks like hell and has bad preformance...
     
  13. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    First Modena. Second Z8. Third 911 Turbo because it relies on turbo and doesn't look nearly as good as the others.
     
  14. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    Most people are saying 360, Z8 then 911, and I agree. Of course this is all a matter of opinion, but Ferrari does have the name.<!-- Signature -->

  16. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    I would choose the modena, because it has the best styling and you dons see nearly as many Ferraris as you do BMW's and Porsches
     
  17. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    I'd pick the 911 Turbo cuz its fast and luxorious and its a Porsche!<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    For me:

    1) Z8
    2) 911 Turbo
    3) 360 Modena

    The Z8 is simply far better looking than either of the other two. The 360 is an ugly duckling as far as I'm concerned, and the 911 Turbo is somewhat pedestrian. It may sound bad to say any one of these cars is just an everyday thing, but the car is not exactly rare around here. Regardless of how they perform, they are all spectacular, but if performance was really what I was solely looking for then the Z06 would be where it's at, or at least where I'd go to to get my performance.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    Everybody says that the Turbo is fastest, and it is on paper. It's aceleration time is the best, and it does pull highest on the skidpad. But its a big beast with a dangerous amount of power. THe Modena is an effortless racer, and is far more agile. It wins slightly in an actual lap/course, as it did in Road and Track. It is also a FERRARI, and sexy as hell. The Z8 is beautiful and flashy, but not quite as attention getting, sort of like the difference between a "pretty" audi TT and a "omg thats a crazy car" S2000. The Z8's interior is worth takin a bullet for, though, and that car is just ELEGANT and FAST. Last comes the turbo, since its sooooo slooow... wow the worst performing car in my list is a porsche turbo...... I'd love to have any of the three.

  20. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    My first choice would be the Porsche 911 Turbo, then the Ferrari 360 Modena, and then the BMW Z8. First of all, the 911 Turbo seems like the best value, since it has twin turbos, a 15 horsepower advantage over the Z8 and the 360. The 911 may weigh about 400 pounds heavier than the 360, but once those turbos spool up, the 911's acceleration will dramatically increase, and already, the 911 accelerates faster than the Modena. The 360 Modena will catch up in the corners, though. The 911 Turbo has my vote for speed, an then its the BMW Z8, following closely behind by the 360 Modena. For handling, the 360 Modena, then the 911 Turbo, and then the Z8. Top speed is uncertain, but the 911 Turbo and 360 Modena are tied exactly, and it is unfair to make the Z8 last, because it has an electronic limiter/governer, but still, the Z8 would probably be last. In terms of styling, I think the 360 looks the best, and then the 911, and last, the Z8. In mileage, the 911 and Z8 are tied, and of course, the 360 is in last, with a horrific 8/15 EPA City/Highway rating.<!-- Signature -->

  23. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    honeslty would have a real hard time picking between the Z8 and the 360 Modena. but in the end, it will probably be the modena!!!<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    dont get me wrong though, i luv the Z8!<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: Z8, 360 Modena, or 911 Turbo?

    Z8 is by far the slowest, straight-line, top(with removed limiter it's still way behind) or track.
    Depending on race-track of course, but mostly the Turbo will beat the Ferrari by a goodly margain and doing it in better comfort and easier handling, only time the Ferrari is coming out on top is really the looks, it's simply fab!
    Would still take the Ferrari but would rather go for the F355, it looks 10 times better, handles and performs the same also.
