Whenever I see a car like this I get depressed, because I know I'll never have the pleasure of owning one :tear:

I love that car so much, I think its one of the most beautiful cars on the road, I'd take it in less than a heartbeat. And that just sounds INCREDIBLE.....can you imagine hearing that thing fly by you, I think I'd crap my pants.

I want it.

Sorry to say this but with a comment like that, you do not know what a real car should sound like. The thing sounds like an indy car like someone pointed out already. Plus the fact that you are pretty much saying that you prefer one of your cars like the trans am to one of the best supercars in the world is mind boggling. This isnt a low tech pushrod V8, this is german engineering at it's best, an amazing 5.7L V10 engine.

wow you have no idea what an opinion is. listen to the car with the mufflers on and then listen to it on this video you guys have posted and tell me it doesnt sound like a honda

in fact here... gt with pipes this one sounds alot better with an exhaust.
i dont know what real car should sound like....
hmm i dont like porsches sounds with no exhaust so i dont know what a real car sounds like... that was so stupid i dont even know what to say about that.... i drive a few real cars every day... maybee im just deaf (no offence to any deaf people out here)

i dont think it sounds like an indy carindy car but maybee i am deaf.

where did i say i want one of my cars over one of the best supercars in the world? please tell me where i said that... pretty please.

low tech pushrod v8, german engineering at its best, 5.7 v10, you forgot the turbos...
the first problem with your statement is low tech, there is nothing low tech about an lsx motor, pushrod v8's.

german engineering, hmmpf, not really impressed with it, it takes them how much money to make a car do 200mph when a lowly pushrod v8 without forced induction can do it for close to 300,000 less.

actually doing a little bit of research finds that the fastest street legal car ever was a corvette.... can anyone guess how fast it went. ill tell you
for a out of date low tech pushrod v8 it went .....
254.76 mph
and it passes emissions in all 50 states

wait a sec i have the fastest 0-60 times for all kinds of cars out there

lets face it you would take your mazda over that porsche any day.... no you wouldnt, then why would you buy your mazda?
no money for the porsche?
you ever think maybe thats why i dont own an exotic sports car?
but ill tell you one thing
my little pushrod v8 will take any stock car exotic or not you put up against it
[/b]
BTW that is an F1 car, not an indy car, different thing.

"where did i say i want one of my cars over one of the best supercars in the world? please tell me where i said that... pretty please."
Right here:
"im not denying the car is fast but i would never want one"

The Carrera GT is N/A, no turbos.

So 0-60 times, one of the most useless performance stats, is your measurement for speed?
This is just used for marketing.

I am sure your car is fast along with many other pushrod V8s.
That doesn't change the fact that it is low tech compared to the engine in a near 1/2 million dollar car.
I've seen plenty of 4 cylinder cars hit single digit 1/4 mile times.
That doesn't mean they are better.
It isnt just all about going fast in a straight line which seems to be your idea of fast.
True performance is measured around a track, not in a straight line.
You pay a premium for these type of cars for a reason, speed isnt just speed.

Yea I definitely would like to see one of your cars go around a track against a car like a Carrera GT.
It would literally lap you, might as well stay still.

i was very bored at work

i just think its stupid for someone to go ahead and rip into someone who stated an opinion, i stated an opinion about a car that i think sounds like ass. and he started telling me that i dont know what a car sounds like... vroom vroom isnt that close to it....

anyways

he still didnt prove his point,
its just funny how narrowminded some people are

Okay. So performance around a track (frankly, when you're talking about engines that's not as much an engine thing as a car thing, but whatever)...

The "lowly" pushrod V8 in the "lowly" Corvette will run rings around virtually any car on any track. There's only one car in the world that's ever ran faster than an '06 Z06 around the world-famous, quitessential benchmark of track-racing, the Nurburgring, and that's the above-mentioned Carrera GT -- and you can buy a Z06 in every color and still not have enough to buy a Carrera GT.

The Corvette is such an impressive vehicle, even by Porsche's standards, that Porsche now uses the Corvette as a benchmark claiming their new GT3 to be "as fast as the Z06" around the Nurburgring. Porsche brags about how they got the weight of their 5.7L down so low but the 6.0L LS2 is lighter, and it's the same weight as the gigantic 7.0L LS7. Who cares about "smaller" (in displacement) if it weighs the same in the end? Porsche's 5.7L generates 20% more horsepower, but at the cost of giving the Z06 a 20% lead in torque.

Not bad for such a "lowly" V8.

GM hasn't significantly updated the LSx motors for one very good reason -- it doesn't need to. Other companies aspire to do what GM has done with the LSx series with such incredible simplicity, reliability, and efficiency. Why fix something that ain't broke?

It comes down to different strokes for different folks both in cars and in the engines that power them. I can appreciate the sound of a Porsche even though I don't get as orgasmic as some do, but I for one prefer the sound of just about anything with "Lingenfelter" in front of it more. 800+hp TT C6 Z06 anyone?

Proved what point? There was no point to prove. Just stated how I found your opinion stupid, nothing to really prove. Glad to see you couldn't respond to my previous post because you know I am right. It's okay, nothing new :-D

not really taking sides, cuz there's no point, but have u read sigma's post?

ya that's opinion too, but he also backed it up with facts.

and i would have to agree with him.

another thing is, sound is very subjective, there isn't a real answer to what a "real car" is "suppose" to sound like. it's kinda like comparing differn gerne's of music, everyone has their own taste.

what IS comparable is performance and efficiency. there is no denying in my mind that the carrera GT is a work of art. but there's also no denying in my mind that the LSx engines are rock solid in performance also, and that the z06 performs like a monster in a track proven by solid track times.

and as sigma pointed out, u can buy all the z06 in every color produced and still not have enough to get the GT. you are paying almost half a million dollars for a porsche badge and bragging rights.

now if the porsche was the ones that made the LSx engines and produced a vette in the first place and slapped on the porsche emblems, people would probably be looking at the vette the same way they'd be looking at the carrera gt now.

i see where you are getting at about the porsche, i have to admit it's a gorgeous car. but sound is very subjective, and that the LS v8 -that cost only a small fraction of that of the GT's- can produce outstanding results is a fact.

that's all my opinion, but of course, you'll probably think my opinion is rubbish and stupid, right?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the top of that 0-60 list (yeah I know that list really isn't worth much) a porsche? A racing porsche, but a porsche none the less?

Not starting crap, just amused by that little fact. I love the carrera gt personally, but realize that you can get to it's level of performance for a lot less money.
