Wikipedia is da shizzle

I'm just now catching on to how cool and useful Wikipedia really is. As an example, my 12 yr old son and I have been arguing the definition of a supercar. He's bought some books on supercars, one of which includes the C6 Z06...so, he's trying to convince me that I should consider it as such. My first instinct was to post here and show him everyone's opinion (which I'm reasonably certain would bolster my position), to change his stubborn mind. Then I thought "Hey, do I really want my kid seeing how many people really hate his Dad?" ('cuz you know the thread would go to hell in a handbasket with BDA, HD, et. al. with their incessant insults and slander), so I figured I'd best get my info elsewhere.

Wikipedia not only has a decent definition with a laundry list of criteria, but they list the supercars of the different eras (with links to pics), and also list disputed supercars, planned supercars, and more.

I'll try to be nicer when you start trying to be smarter.

Re: Wikipedia is da shizzle

I agree with your kid. I think the C6 ZO6 is a supercar.

Re: Wikipedia is da shizzle

You lost an argument to your 12 year old son?

A super car is anything you buy at the local used car supermarket.

It is a great car, but by design (actually affordable to more than the elite) it isn't a "supercar".
