Question Top 1/4 Mile Car

If you could only drive one car down the drag strip, which one would you chose?.

Would we chose our ZL1 as our endeared chariot of choice?.

Well I only have one car so I do drive it down the strip,often! For me it's perfect. 650 plus who, mid to upper 10s and a great touring car as well. I guess if I had unlimited funds maybe a Ferarri F12.

2015 Porsche 991 Turbo S Coupe. Capable of high 10's bone stock using launch control. It launches at 5000 RPM and you can us the LC as much as you like without issue. The TTS is a Beast.

I'd like to try that new Mclaren P1 that ran in the 9's stock. I would much rather run it in the mile though.

This must be a trick question, because this is the only correct answer.

Mrvenicess you make a great abstract case for the ZL1. I do not see a need to limit the imagination, but for something under 70K hmm great point.

Snakedriver I saw an early Model Porsche S turbo go for a cool mil. On T.v. show "chasing classic cars". I am somewhat sure, there is a reason people were willing to bid that high.

zl1 would not be my choice for drag racing. way to slow.

if you talking something you can buy unmodfied it would be the P1 or 918 they are 9 second cars.

if you talking anything top fuel car ha ha. at least a pro stock or something. I have never been sub 9 seconds so if if you dreaming I am going to dream big.

Unlimited funds? A 2012 convertible camaro that has 1200+rwhp with 4:11 gears and it can be driven daily with no worries. A all stock car I would choose to run down the strip only? I would pick either a COPO 427 or a 1970 challenger 426

I think I am beginning to understand something I have felt for a while but not understood in words. I think I am beginning to understand its not the year of the car (newest) that matters to me most, but how they made the model year. Because no matter how they make a new year, there is just something that you cannot take a way from the 68-71 editions.

So true! Sometimes it's not the ultimate speed that does it. I used to drive Lambos and Ferarris but had the most fun on the back roads in an old Alfa Spyder.

New auto C7 Z06. That car is going to destroy many higher HP cars at the strip.
On drag radials and mine shaft air, that car is going to approach 10 flat.

I am surprised that vettes can launch effectively at all with the lack of weight they have.
