Ok, wanted a little more education. A doc I work with just bought a Porsche Cayman S (295hp, 6cyl, etc... http://www.porsche.com/usa/models/cayman/cayman-s/
He says he'll kick the ****e out of my GTO (and he should if he paid double what I paid!). IS that true? I know probably off the line because I weigh more, but will I really get my a$$ handed to me? I have a 05 M6 w/ CAI, exhaust,tune, but that's it for now. I would line them up, BUT, I'm about 2 hrs away (and I like to pick my battles, if you know what I mean). I know I'm not even near as mechanically inclined as most on this forum, so I'm looking for some thoughts.
:cheers

They run low 13's. Should be an excellent race. You've got some boltons and a tune, so i'm thinking you'll edge him out. any 1/4 times or dyno numbers? Was the tune a dyno tune?

I've driven the Cayman S and you are comparing apples to oranges. The Cayman S is a very well designed car and is a blast to drive. However, in a straight line from a dig or better yet on the highway the GTO will beat the Cayman S. Now on the other hand in a small road course with lots of twisties or through a canyon the Cayman S will beat the GTO.

Both are good cars... Porsche of course is better built all around "especially the shifter".... not to take away from "Monaro", but that is why the Porsche is $60,000.00 compared to $32,000.00 for the GTO.

I would race him, just make sure it is on your terms STRAIGHT otherwise he wins.

Race him. Even if he beats you, it won't be by much.
You've got nothing to lose. But He does :cool
