I agree that the relative performance of the current Z06 and ZR1 are close enough that it's hard to justify the price difference. Putting more power into this platform just seems to be a recipe for even more traction problems.
Spoke to Pete Callaway at Carlisle and he alluded to traction issue as to why we don't see a Callaway ZR1. Not the tuning issue. He said chevy would supply them with a way around that.

When i was looking in 2017 it was 1st year or the GS so there were no big discounts to be found on it. In the end the difference in price between the GS and ZO6 with its huge discounts was less than 10k so ZO6 it was.

Even though I owned a 911 for 15 years I was never in love with the look but did love the handling. I test drove a Mclaren, Ferrari Kalifornia, Astin Martin and several Porsche Targas prior to buying my Z06/M7 and feel like I made a great choice..............................

It is the same trolls every time and probably best to never give them what they want, an angry response.

Do you even know the definition of a hypocrite? Because you're acting like one now, along with punky.

Stop using your emotions to aid to your posts on any particular discussion, stay with the discussion at hand.

Corvettes are awesome however don't disrespect german engineering and it's clearly better. That's all.

Yeah OK, try owning a 911 out of warranty, you'll learn all about "German Engineering". You sound like a guy who reads waaaay to many car magazines.

Rob you are a condescending human being. I happen to own an Audi and had a 911 for 15 years. You know nothing about me or most of the other people on this forum but you have no problem judging us. I will do my best to ignore you

He along with a few other import humpers here pretender to be Corvette enthusiasts but are haters of somewhat limited intelligence as demonstrated by their inability to mask their true intentions. This stupidity can be entertaining when one considers the source.

Yes please do your best to ignore, because so far you and you little friend haven't.

Just 2 childish complainers when you guys hear something that hurt your feelings.

Again, don't disrespect german engineering, it's clearly better than what we have in our cars.

Oh, and go experience a NEW 911. Not one that is 15 years old. 2 different cars.

"Don't disrespect German engineering", Yeah OK Pal.

Would that be the same engineering that causes a Porsche to cost 2- 3 times that of a Corvette it attempts to compete with?

Would that be the same "German Engineering" that gives the 911 faithful the same ugly, squashed, VW Beetle, design from decades ago?

Would that be the "German Engineering" that fills the internet with post warranty maintenance horror stories.

Yeah Dude, we know all about "German Engineering". It is abundantly clear that you do not.
