    Looking Back: 2001 Corvette Z06 vs M3 vs Boxster S



    No matter what types of cars you lust after, and no matter what era you hold dear, these are the good old days when it comes to serious automotive performance. And not, just in an old fashioned straight line sense f the term: Today’s hottest rides go, handle, and stop as well as full out SCCA Trans-Am race cars decades ago. Yet, they pack amazingly high levels of luxury, feature content, and electronic technology. For this test we have three of the best. Two from Germany, the other all American, and each presented its own perspective on the sports-car theme.

    A nostalgic era for me. Don't really care for the Porsche, and I'd definitely take the E46 M3 over the Vette of the time. How times change. Today there's no way I'd buy the M3 over a Stingray.

    Cool Video.

    In 2001 my father was trying to decide between those exact 3 vehicles. He ended up with the M3 for one reason only, the back seat. He decided it was more practical.

    It was not too long after this show that the MT Editor in Chief featured, C. Van Tune, hastily resigned and MT continued its downward trend (no pun intended) against C&D. Thanks to some misteps at C&D (Csere bowing to pressure, the hiring of the incompetent Alterman) and steadying, if not arrogance, by Angus, Loh has MT really taking it to C&D now.

    I always thought Van Tune was a bit out of his depth and this video certainly shows nothing to disuade that opinion. He is more of a TV freelancer now.
