Re: What Porsche folks are saying

Damn. A lot of Z06 bashing in Porsche land, but some defenders too. I guess they know who the competiion is and what to shoot for.
It's sort of interesting that the 4.0 RS 911 GT3 is probably about as fast as a Z06 with nearly half the engine displacement (and 2.5 times the cost). But then again, it gets worse mileage, and the engine probably doesn't weigh much less, so what's the point?

Most people judge a car's "handling" by how "heavy" the steering wheel feels. i.e. the resistence to turning. BMW's bank on this, and I do enjoy my wife's 328. But at speed, there's a lot more to judge. Heavy steering is easy to design in and doesn't necessarily mean the car grips well or goes fast.
