A friend of mine has one and I just want to prepare myself for his claims as to how inferrior the Corvette is. He used to have older 911s but never seemed to beat me in a race. I have a pretty strong running '92.
From experience my 86 w/Z51 and some mild mods, no headers no cam.
Ripped the :booty off of a Boxter, and had to make the S work hard. blew both of them through the lights, the S started to catch up around 70-80 kmh but we had to slow down for the next light. Both were pretty cool and gave me the thumbs up.
