C7s are 3350-3450 pounds, the lightest c7s are 200 pounds heavier than the lightest c6s, so you’ve got quite the weight advantage at 2800 pounds.

Isn't this car 3100 from the factory? Where are you guys pulling 300lbs out from?

Lol. Not enough to take on the 2-300 hp difference xD

I hear ya bud, just meant you’re actually quite a bit lighter than a stock c7, for example. Go big turbo to try and take away the more cubes advantage in higher gears, at least that was my idea, but I haven’t been able to goat any c7s around town yet, it’s always somebody in a focus st or something trying to goat me lol

Oh sure, its physics. Even if you had the same power the C7 is rwd with huge sticky tires in the rear. A heavily modified Golf R stands a chance.

I stayed right with him through second and third and then I freaking missed fourth!

My wife couldn't believe I kept up with him. I thought it might have been a Grand Sport, but he slowed down and when I get next to him, sure enough, it was a Z06, driven by what would have looked like my father - early 70's with a full gray beard. He gave me the thumbs up and I did the same.

Basically, he should have roasted me. It all comes down to the driver. My father had a C6 Z06 and I know for a fact that he would have had a hard time beating me in my 2001 Boxster when I had it.
Lol sorry but no, I have a 986 boxster too and while I love that car, there is no way it could take a Z06. That thing has almost double the HP and does 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds. In the twisties with an inferior driver? That's a different story.

Honestly I'd take a hybrid gutted GTI 2 door tuned to the max against a vette before I tried with any R that weighs literally the same as them..



Weight is the only friend on your side in these scenarios

It doesn't seem that many people understand what I mean by "the driver."

My father didn't run the car to redline and it took him more than a second to shift from one gear to the next. He drove it like "an old man" as I would kid with him. He just laughed and said "well, that's what I am!"

If you put me in his Z06 and he drove my Boxster, it was lights out. I would run to redline and shift MUCH quicker than he ever could.

People love to quote numbers, but in the real world, it's a completely different story.

....sorry I don't get it. Why are you even comparing to a subpar/not even trying driver then. Obviously you would beat your father if he's just puttering around. Skill matters but I thought your comparison was absurd. An average driver in the Z06 would roast Lewis Hamilton in the boxster in a straight line period.

Lol, just cause you can afford to drive buy a car, doesn't mean you can drive it well. Often people in "expensive" cars or cars with a lot of horsepower are far too scared to even attempt to drive it well.

Y'all need to relax. His example literally was about how it doesn't matter how fast a car is if the driver only uses 10% they gonna lose...

I have a 17 3LZ Z06 and it weighs 3568 LBS. on my 4 corner scales.
My 17 1LT Stingray weighed 3415 LBS. on the same scales.
They are not really "lightweight".
Haven't bothered to weigh the 17 Sportwagen 4 Mo yet, I should though.
