Assuming you have to keep it :p

2003 Mercedes SL vs. Porsche 911 C2 vs. 2003 Viper vs. E46 M3 vs SC 430

I saw this at e46fanatics and thought it would be nice to post here. It has been a VERY slow week here

Which one of these just doesn't belong with the others? Oh yeah, the SC430. WTF? That's a luxo-coupe not a sports car. It's not even a sporty coupe. It's strictly a luxury coupe. There isn't even an ounce of sport there.

As for me, given that list, give me the P-car. By a wide margin....

But, people have different preferences :dunno:

The SL is a luxury coupe too :dunno:

C2 is much less expensive and non-exotic. Attainable and much more comprable to the others.

That's like asking : "Why no M3 CSL?" :confused:

E46 too :D :bigpimp:
To a certain extent, yes. But, the E46 has comprable features to the C2. The M3 is NOT available in auto as the 911 is :tsk:

It isn't auto only with at 1000lb folding hardtop either....

I think we need to define what a true sports car is.

I'll open a thread, sounds like a good discussion to me.

That's a no brainer... 911! :thumb: My dream car... Call me crazy, but between a Ferrari and a Porsche, I'd pick the P-car (assuming you have to keep it)... :D

Edit:

Let's see if somebody will have the balls to vote on the SC430... :lmao:

On second thought, it is a bad selection of cars for a poll, beyond just the SC430 having no place on the list. I cannot imagine many people cross-shopping the cars on that list. For example, guys interested in the Viper would not consider the Merc or the Lexus Actually, they'd probably only cross-shop it with a 'Vette. The Porsche and M3 customers are likely to cross-shop those cars and the Lexus and Merc buyers might cross-shop those two also.

But overall, this list says more about the respondant than about the cars.

And anytime I see the SC430 on the road, I automatically assume the buyer is compensaating for something. I mean, there is no reason in the world to get that car. And it's alsmost as ugly as the E65. Ugh!

It isn't meant to be a comparison of similar cars. Intended to bring out preferences about cars. The Z06 should be in there though....

Gee... not much to think about E46 M3
Haus,

Do you honestly like it better than a 911? I mean, I love it too, but a P-car's still a P-car... :D
