These guys have sponsors that GIVE them this shit for free. Broke trans? No problem, here's another one. Try this.

The fastest thing you've ever owned is what, a 2016 Dakota? You're complaining about 500 hp not being enough and then move the goal post and talk about reliability.

Fast, cheap, reliable

Pick 2
you seriously are retarded.

read the thread.

op pondering a production car. you chime in "omgz you can build faster with the same money"

a person with an average IQ could make the basic leap of logic that OP isn't a racer, so he's not interested in "breaking world records". he wants a fast production car bc they offer what your dumbass idea of building a car can't offer: reliability.

does OP have a sponsor to replace a broken trans or other broken parts? you didn't think this one through.

You don't have to be a world record breaker to be a racer. You can build a car faster and handle just as well if not better than a C8 with $60k in another platform and be just as reliable if not more. Now Draz may not have the mechanical ability to do so, but that's beside the point because the fact is that it can be done. In your small narrow minded world, production cars as they sit on the show room floor are the end all be all and are reliable since they are brand new. Just stop... you're already in way over your head and exposed yourself. Imagine talking the nonsense you are when earlier this year Hyundai had to recall over 500,000 cars.

My wife saw it and she instantly said let's get it.

You only have one life to live. I realized that as you get older we've became slaves to working 9-5 and thereafter.

Now, I can care less about the HP. Living in NYC and this applies everywhere, theres speed cameras everywhere. My path to work there's 25mph speed limits where I got caught once doing 35. You're literally creeping and can walk faster than some areas.

Definitely don't care how fast it goes. The fact that it looks that good, it's mid engine and can take corners, it redefined performance car and puts the sport in sports car.

All in all, GM knocked it out of the park. For the sake of discussion, this KILLS the new Supra.

This puts American muscle back on the table.

Electric cars are the future, but I see this being the last good gas powered vehicle as gasoline gets phased out. Risky buy for the future but I see the next installment being an all electric car.

The interior is still growing on me though. Looks like a space ship inside. I guess they catered to the driver and only the driver.

Reviewers are saying it's like piloting a jet.

The beat part about owning a two seater? Not having to bring on your stupid ass friends.
