Now the truth comes out. Chevy is going to have to turn to what the Ford Mustang and Ford GT has had to do to get more horsepower to compete with the Turbo-less Viper. Add a turbo, lololol.

Google "Texas Mile" and see what happens when you turbo up a Viper with the 8.3 liter. Now imagine a 8.4 liter turbo'ed Viper LOLOL. Will Chevy try again? Why not!

zr 1 2008 vette will anilhate a viper so bad they ll have different postal codes.How narrow minded people can think a viper is superior to a z06 or zr1,the vette is so refined while the big dodge is a 60 s muscle car with fuel injection.

I have owned a C4 and C5 vette. This week I will take delivery on my fourth viper. I can't see going back to a vette until my reflexes deteriorate then I will go back to a vette. I have sold my vettes but have kept my vipers. The ZR-1 sounds like a great car but put a turbo or blower on the viper and there is no way the vette will hang with the viper. Both great and fun cars but the viper is just plain more fun to drive fast.

Alot of people say that they see more Corvettes out on the road. Alot of people say that the Vette is easier to drive than the Viper. The Vette is much more sophisticated than the Viper. That is the only thing that I have to say about he Vette. The Viper is an absolute monster, it is a nearly untamable force that demands your complete respect and attention when you are behind the wheel. The reason why there are so many more Vette's on the road is because they make more, because there's a higher demand for them. The reason for this is because most Americans can't handle a vehicle like the Viper. There would be many more banged up Vipers if they made more of them because people buy cars to suit them.....before a person buys a Viper...you have to know if you suit it.(No, I didn't crash my Viper...I've taken it to some considerable limits but I have never and will never completely unleash it.)

Vettes are owned by a bunch of folks who wanted one for 20 years and/or strippers.

The speed tests are in and the Viper wins there.

There are more kia's sold than ferrari's, wanna guess which is the better car? That's a stupid benchmark to use.
