The only Porsche that will be able to sniff the tailpipe of that car is a GT2. Starting price over $200K- if you can even find one. Good luck.

Fortunately, my car still has a better power to weight ratio. ZR1 = 4.71, me = 4.30

Hmm, more horsepower, significantly more torque, less weight, and less cost - I think I shall stick with my Callaway SC757 - plus it is paid for.

Sadly, most of these cars will be wasted on 70 year-old treadmill racers.
