The press release says 3,397lbs, but C&D has it at 3,372lbs.

Still a garbage gearbox. Part of the reason I can't take modern M cars seriously...performance cars are about the details; not the statistics. These days in attention-deficit-Internet-debates the superficial car guys talk about 0-60 times and Ring times. The real peeps into cars don't even care about those things...

Can confirm "real peeps" have been discussing 0-60 times long before the Internet.

This is a load of crap. I understand what you’re getting at, that the measure of a car is more than stats, and intangibles like feel or emotion are important. That’s absolutely true. But to pretend like that’s the only thing that matters, or that you can’t also appreciate other things like performance, comfort, etc is where we must part company. I assure you there are a lot of “real peeps” that care about all kinds of things.

Your 1M is a modern M car btw

Performance has gotten a bit "meh" though. I mean, the difference between 3.9 and 4.3 to 100 clicks is fuck all, monumentally irrelevant. The actual driving experience is far, far more important to ownership experience than 3.9 vs 4.3.

Which is why i said i'd take the GT350 of those cars listed in the test, just fucking listen to the thing. It's all revs and attitude and glorious noise.

My only gripe with the gt350 is the build quality. They are notorious for having paint defects, trim defects, and if you got stripes they aren't properly aligned with the the rest when coming to seams and panels.

Friend of mine bought one in 2016 through MAS (Military Auto Sales) in Germany. Once he got it, he found paint runs on the lower section of the driverside door, the vents in the front quarter panels were clearly held on with double sided tape (you could see the tape through the gap it created between the panel and the trim), and his hood stripe wasn't lined up at the trunk to the bumper. He had all of that fixed, but within 2 years the motor was burning a ton of oil. Took it to the dealership and they had to order a new motor, which was a month wait just for the motor and then another week or 2 for labor. All covered under warranty, but still quite a bit.

Now, I will say that it was that baby blue they offered a the time so maybe it showed paint runs more? Either way though, the car sounded amazing and handled amazing. A great driving experience every time for sure.

But, if it came down to spending $65k on a sports car with a v8, without going luxury brands, I'd probably go with a ZL1 camaro. Sure, you can go corvette as well, but the supercharger in the ZL1 and that exhaust note are addictive and sound better than the entry trim corvette at $65k. Only downside would be the quality of parts used. But compared to the gt350 that also has lack luster quality parts, at least it doesn't have known assembly quality issues.

Yeah I get the build quality thing, that's a consideration. i guess i am just over the whole OMG this car does 3.9 so so much better than the other at 4.3 ...does it even matter anymore given how fast all these cars are now?

As long as you are okay adding a quart of oil every 500 miles. C&D had to add 21 quart to their long term GT350 and they got a good engine;

Quote:
And then there's the oil-consumption issue: Over 40,000 miles, we added 21.5 quarts of 5W-50. That's in addition to scheduled oil changes. It's the most we've ever added during a long-term test by a long shot. Ford released a supplement to the owner's manual stating that the engine might consume a quart every 500 miles under severe use. "Severe use" pretty accurately sums up our treatment of just about any car, but particularly one with an 8250-rpm redline. And we were lucky; internet forums are rife with horror stories of Shelbys consuming far more.

It depends on what you’re goal is. If you go to the drag strip for fun then yea, it does matter. If you go to the track, then 0-60 doesn’t matter as much as how well the vehicle carries moment through the corners and handles. If you just cruise around or do red light sprints then it doesn’t matter really, as long as the car has the driving experience you enjoy, that would/should be the most important.

People look at 0-60 and think it means better power to weight and overall acceleration, but they don’t account for grip which has many factors involved. And most of the time people aren’t using their 0-60 capability, more so their 10-60 capability because of passing on the road. Beyond that, all of the numbers are strictly bragging rights.

I guess i always viewed these cars as road cars not track cars. I wouldn't track something this expensive, just asking for horrendous bills vs tracking a 15 year old whatever with a big engine.

This is also true. I keep my hat, and a small umbrella inside the hat to weigh it down, in the net behind the seats. Otherwise only thing in the glove box is registration and my sunglasses.

So I guess we have the explanation for how C&D achieved 3.8sec 0-60 with the new 335 hp Supra.

They dynoed it at 339 whp and 427 wtq. Using a generic drivetrain loss of 15% nets 390 hp and 491 tq at the crank.

I think 10% is the new norm for power loss for autos and DSG. But that's still 370/470, which certainly better explains the impressive performance.

They also had m2c dynos at the beginning that were like 450whp and 600 wtorque

Here is the link the the C&D article.

Side note, does that mean the Z4 is pushing around 380hp to the wheel?
