Have you gone on YouTube and search Corvette vs Supra?
Those Supra's with their inline 6 cyl. turbo is kicking a lot of Corvette a$$!
We didn't eat our Wheaties?
Most of the ones I looked at the vettes are getting creamed at the light, I'd first have to look at overall gear ratio at launch. Most of the videos you can't see the ET's/trap speed well or at all.
The supra'a are definitely making horsepower and getting it to the ground. Turbo inline should make good power but suprisingly we still have a weight advantage, don't know what the Supras top speed is.
Agree with everyone, turbo cars are awesome. I bought my c5 to replace my stealth rt/tt, and that thing hauled ***. It had chump change in performance mods and would spank my stock vette. And supras have sooo much more potential than stealth/3000gts.
My favorite muscle car is my 1989 Turbo Trans Am. It has the Buick GNX engine in it with modified heads to fit under the hood of the Trans Am. It is such a beast and will out run any stock car today with the right tires and proper launching technique. Not bad for a 23 year old car. There is just a different feeling when that Turbo kicks in, the sound it make going up and whistling down, the car just sits down and grinds in and soars with the aerodymanics as other cars with monster hp just spin their tires and try to catch up. Top end is reported at 160+, 140 is as brave as I got with it.
With that said, the C5 has it all, looks, style, comfort, class, RELIABILITY, and even gets better gas milage than the V6. I would love to add a turbo kit to it someday to see how it would stack up against my old bird. The ZR1 is a world class super car and does not compare to any of these. 220 on the gauge, just incredible. Best of all, the TTA and Vette are American made, I'll take either one over a Toyota or Nissan. JMHO... To each their own.
