I loved my Vette and will have another soon.
The WRX will do for now.
Now If I could just get the wife to let me blow about 5k it will be set.

I don't wear Corvette clothes and I'm not a part of the local vette chapter. The reason I have one is b/c I like fast cars. So, I put a lot of money into it for performance mods and have kept it looking stock except for lowering it. Now, every ricer and jackazz in a stock Z06 think they can take me, which is fun. lol

It's also fun pulling 600s on the freeway. :D

Vettes are cool, but personally I like Camaros more. Most who are into performance vehicles cross lines freely between 2 wheels, 4 wheels, and anything else that might come along (bar stools!).

I hope you're talking about the stock vette because the Z06 will laugh at the Cobra.

Still waiting for a Cobra that will match up stock for stock to a new vette. You can make the new s/c Cobras pretty quick with just exhaust and a pully essentially, but stock for stock they're not outrunning new vettes. Some run decent at the strip, though, but with equal drivers they're not hanging.

Amen brotha! The Z06 is going to be slightly over 500HP. Sure "maybe" Mustang can get a Cobra to do that. But its still a Mustang. I would still bet the Vette handles better due to its stance etc.
The new Stangs are sweet, but I never put them in the same class as a Corvette. I mean Hell, one can probably Mod their moms mini van to close to 500HP, but at the end of the day its still no good except to pick the kids up from soccer!

let me clarify my post, i know the NEW z06 is amazing as far as HP thats y i said that eventually they will get the cobra up there, but not now, but b4 this new z06 the cobra could run with it.

Bull....first off, it's what they're into. Why try and understand it, you don't agree, you're not into it, that's fine, you can have your opinion. If someone chooses to spend money on them because they love them, then so be it. Hey, a lot of people out there could say the same things about us riding sportbikes and a lot of them do.....get my point? I personally am a Camaro guy myself. Love em, always have, always will. I don't understand guys that are into Harleys..........and I'm sure I'm not the only one around here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!but, it's what they like and who am I to question what someone is into.

The Cobra could run with the LS1s in a straight line up to 100mph or so, but that's it. The 2002-2005 Z06 (LS6) vettes eat new Cobras alive in straights or twisties. The new Cobra *might* be able to hand with the C6 LS2 in a straight line, but that's a big *might*.

The goal for the next Cobra I believe is 485hp. . it was 500, but that was the last I heard. It will still be 3600+lbs I think, though. They also made a goal of 1g+ on the skid pad.

mustangs suck at any speed over 120. lol i know this. but the cobra if u just spent the 500 or whatever it costs for the aftermarket pully, you get a good abount of hp.
what are the quarter mile times run in stock z06's with good drivers.
