Thank God it was the Lotus and not the Vette!
As far as the TT goes, your comments are true. But for a HANDLING test, there simply is no comparison between the TT and the GT2! As long as the GT2 is street-legal, it should have been representing for Porsche!
And they could not find one to test??? They just did a write up not long ago about taking it to Laguna Seca and doing an autocross event at Qualcomm Stadium with the PCA San Diego guys!
As for the 360, I'm glad Ferrari is back on top... it should be interesting to see how that ugly thing that they call the FX should turn out performance-wise... Talk about ugly!
The BMW M3-- well, I am shocked that it would place LOWER than the 'Vette. What an embarassment for BMW!
It's called the car needs to go on a diet! I think they really, really, really need to introduce an M3 LTW (Lightweight) version as they did on the E36. An M3 should be able to outhandle the Vette, if not the 911! Is BMW losing its handling engineering prowess as well?
They should do an another article on the best-handling 4-doors as well. That would be an interesting one!
