    More power to them... Porsche is a company I envy tremendously as a GM fan. It and Audi are two of my favorite brand stories.

    Absolutely.

    494 horsepower to all four wheels in SAE correction and an eye opening 602 pound-feet of torque at the wheels.
    It's so underrated, it's not even funny.

    There is no need for mid-engine Corvette, just look at the GT-R numbers. Though there could be a case for AWD. GM should just bring a Cadillac supercar to take on the 911 turbo S. It is not like they can push the Corvette Z06 further upmarket.

    Mostly RWD vs AWD. Also, believe it or not, there is such a thing as too much torque.

    It also appears to be lacking power, at least relative to the other two. If you look at the acceleration at higher speeds where traction is not a factor, it's slower as well.

    60 - 150 mph:

    Corvette Z06 - 14.6 sec
    Nismo GT-R - 12.9 sec
    911 Turbo S - 12.4 sec

    No, Machines have surpassed what humans can do, even with rev match, you still loose momentum with a manual since you cannot possibly shift in the miliseconds.. like a DSG or the new 8 speed
