Those boxers with a performance exhaust sound mean.
Yeah that's way better. Scotty Kilmer said that the snobs in the porsche parts department (which are wearing suits) asked him to remove his dirty old part from the counter. The 1990 Corvette ZR-1 beat the Ferrari Testarossa in all magazine tests that i know off. I got the magazines! It obviously beat comparable porsches as well.
Well, not really. Sure, Ferrari and Porsche, great cars. No denying. It's all about the money. GM isn't selling ultra-expensive cars. For the same $$ (Calloway, for example) a Corvette is just as good a performer. ( Oh, I also blew away vettes in my sport satellite ). I still love ya'
Boxer wasn't around in my time. It was a 911.
But the 911 from the 70's have a six cylinder boxer engine, still have.
I thought you said "Boxster" LOL !! but... they sounded like sh!t then, and still do... nothing like the rumble of a V8, whether it's a Mopar, GM, or Ford
You get the idea
If any of you great guys want to convince me & buy me a Ferrari or Porsche, I won't complain !
Thank God you and I are humble enough to accept those kind of gifts
There was a GTO that beat Ferrari, if only in the mind of marketing genius Jim Wangers. https://oldcarmemories.com/1964-pontiac-gto-vs-1962-1964-ferrari-250-gto/
Belts don't transmit nearly the harmonics from the crank to the valve train that a chain does....
I dont want to own one at this point but i sure would like to try it out for a week or so. Maybe i get it then, who knows. But i dont think so. Of course i would take it if its free.
Was looking at 308's in the early 80's when I was looking at a houses to buy. My old house had flooded 3 times and was looking to move away from it but back then finding a decent place wasn't all that easy at the time here. Glad I found a house as my old house flooded 3 more times and the last time it was like 4 foot of water in it! I'm still living in the house I found (37 years) and so far, never flooded and still never had a Ferrari.....
So it seems there are 2 issues at play here, the cars and the company. The company is like so many corporate entities in that it goes overboard to "protect" the brand. Remember when Ma Mopar was going to all the shows and hammering venders for licensing issues? I am not at all defending Ferrari (or Mopar for that matter) but I am saying it is all the norm these days. As to the cars, well those that have them make corvette owners look like fine sociable people (which the many times are not). The Ferrari people are typically snobs who are quite sure that anyone without a Ferrari is sub par, but within that world its about which car you have and if you own one of the 80s cars then you are still considered a wannabe. The cars themselves are cool but made more to be garage art than actual working vehicles. It is seldom that you will ever find a Ferrari with more than 20K on it, because they cost an arm and a leg just to be maintained. They are not cars, they are rolling art and thus they are bought and sold as such. I always thought it would be cool to get a blown up Ferrari and put a 340, 440 or even a G3 Hemi into one, problem is that even blown up they are stupid money plus I really don't like their interiors much.
I don't hate Ferraris, I have a healthy respect for a few just not really my thing, even if I had that kind of extra coin, to waste on a street-car but; I'd rather have the Porsche GT3 any day it's a real drivers car $165k+ like 1/2 to a 3rd the $$$ cost of most comparable Ferraris I like the style better too, much better fit in the car too (I'd rather have a Rebel TRX right now maybe next week I may change my mind too) I don't have a dog in this fight but, to be a Devil's advocate You can "almost get 3 x C8 Vettes for that $163k base GT3, you could have at a min 2 (or 3) nice Porsches for that cost of a Ferrari, that worth a shit $350k min. 5-10 (to 20) x C8s for the cost of 'a moderate Ferrari' $350k-$700k-$1,200,000 C8 may not be a Ferrari or a Porsche, but I'm sure it's fun not that you'd need or want that many of any of them I had a 74 Targa S, 2.7 flat 6 & I loved it (other than the fat/fugly bumpers, 72 & prior were better looking) not even sure why I sold it like all the cars I've sold, probably had to pay for something else I do like the 60's & early 70's Front Engine Ferraris Daytona Spider, GTO, GT Coupes etc. (pricey as hell now) far better, than the rounded wedges of the newer rear mid-engine stuff Now the newer Prancing Horses does nothing for me, at all except being MoPars/Dodge Ram Jeep redheaded Italian cousins now To me, it's more 'a status symbol' more than anything, look at me, I own a Ferrari, I've made it I'm rich (or financed to the hilt) *open silk shirt with gold chains displayed & all If you want one go for it, do what makes you happy... If you got it... It's sort of like the Corvette crowd had become now too *(have been for a very long time) since like 1974-ish, until like 2005-ish C6 sort of funky roundish style I like the C7 better, 2014-2019, except the fat looking 'Camaro' butt on them I'd roll in a C8 for damn sure, if I could fit base $69k-$71k gets a lot of car, American sports car I'd think the driver would make a bunch of difference in the outcome in a race/between the 3 too I've had several Corvettes too, 65 396 425hp convertible/hardtop 61 S/C 8.90 racecar 71 LS6 454 T-top car all 4 speed cars not the best built cars fun to an extent, the 61 was too small of a cockpit for me a couple more I bought fixed & sold too usually to finance my racecar builds in some way or other should mention the Viper ACT or 96 & later in the same context too to each their own
