Judging by the reaction to the Z/28 over in the Porsche forums and the overly positive reception to the potential of a true track beast for "around $60k" I think your friend is correct. This car is going to pull from all automotive genres. I would like one...honestly hope to at least drive one once.
Thanks for his insight.
Cars and women are both going to give you problems...but you can pay somebody else to fix your car!
