Don't even try. The Porsche 996TT lapped nurburgring in 7min 56 secs to the Vipers 8min 10secs. The Viper does 0 - 60 in 4.2 vs 3.9, the quarter mile in 12.2 vs 11.9 of the TT. As far as I am concerned the Corvette is the only worthwhile sports car from America. As great as the corvette is, it will never be better than a porsche. Keeping that in mind, the ZO6 has not been compared to other 50k cars, but 150k cars and doing pretty well I might add. There was a comparo in last months Road and Track with the 360 Modena, 6.0 GT, Z06, 996TT, Ruf, Z8, and 550 Maranello and it ranked 4th. It has a nearly unbeatable performance/dollar ratio.
