that being said, the new vette is definitely a very good bang for the buck and theres no doubt that the aftermarket will have tons of products out there to fix anything you dont like about the stock car.

performance versions arent out yet but even the base vette is a pretty good buy considering the price they are asking for it. the performance vettes will likely put the price of the car well above 100k (with a few light options) in canada by the time they come out. all depends on how much youre willing to spend on the weekend track toy and how much track time youre going to do with the car....

now the last question to ask is this ....... is the vette better than this ?? which would you rather have?

Chris, you are right the sound of the Viper is intoxicating, but in terms of performance if you do a quick search, you will quickly find that the 2012 ZR1 has better dyno numbers, do longer bunouts by 100 feet, as well as being 2 seconds faster at Laguna Seca. For such a new car, it is indeed impressive, but also disappointing, compared to the best outgoing vette.

I know, but not really a deal breaker for me, he he! But not before 2014.

I need to get me a car that I would not need $1 of mod to track.
SB, Terra, 6MT. Only a few mods here and there.....nothing extreme!
