Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

I wish this was my problem but, my partner is trying to decide whether to get a Porsche GT3 vs a Corvette Z06. He really wanted the Porsche but when he went to check one out, he was told the dealer in Greensboro had one allocated but not actually on the showroom. HE was also told that they were going for about 20-30k above the already supra 100k mark... that puts it well within porsche turbo price and out of his price range. So he went on down to the chevy dealer, sat in a sold Z06 and test rode in a Corvette with the Z51 package. He really liked it. So, now all he has to do is convince his wife

I hope he gets it, because when he gets tired of it in a couple of years, I can afford to "take it off his hands."

His wife? Why, is she paying for it?

"Hey Johnny what're you rebelling against?"
"Whaddya got?"

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

I'd still go for the Porsche. If he's considering it, he's got the money for it and it'll probably hold its value better than the Z06.

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

If the GT3 is out of his price range...there's not much choice eh?

Nice choice to have to make...

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Yeah, if you "really" got to pick...it'd be hard to choose against the GT3 from those two.

Include an F430 and it's far more muddy...

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Not really. Then it would be the V8 Ferrari hands down.
Not a Porsche fan at all. Would never own one.

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

This is a no brainer...it's just like bikes. If you buy something to impress someone else, you will be frustrated and disappointed because there is certain to be someone who won't be impressed.

Rather, the best advice would be to buy what you truly want, damn the naysayers...full speed ahead, and be happy.

Re: Porsche GT3 vs Chevrolet Corvette Z06

I would go for the Z06 over the GT3, but I'm partial to Corvettes anyway.
