Porsche Fanatic Converted!

Vehicle2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
ReviewI've owned several Porsches and always respected the power of Corvettes but thought their handling left something to be desired. Those days are gone. This car out-accelerates, out-handles, out-brakes, and out-looks any of the Porsches I've owned. The engine has the sound of a jet whine combined with that ripping canvas Ferrari growl. Its intoxicating. I got the Z51 suspension with a 6 speed and leaving it in 3rd on a Mt. road lets repeatedly hear the V8 burble which you can feel in your stomach. With the Z51 there is no body lean and it feels like a slot car around corners. The car really doesn't have a weak spot. Best sports car buy this century, it's like getting a Ferrari for $50k.
Best FeaturesLooks, engine, handling, brakes. The G force meter on the heads up display is a must.
Worst FeaturesFit and finish is very good but not perfect. The rubber air dam scrapes most driveways.
