I've test driven both extensively. Both are great cars and it was a hard decision. My decison came down to

- GT badge. The F6 doesn't have any heritage (yet. I foresee F6's and XR6T's beign the VLT of the next decade).
- GT-P will only cost me an extra $15 a month over the F6
- With the way fuel prices are going, get big a*** V8 now, economical F6 next time.

It really is a tough call between the cars if your not a "it's gotta be a V8" or "turbo ftw" mind already made up person. They're both beautiful to drive, the GT handles slightly differently (nothing some font suspension work or alloy block won't fix).


nah, it's as straightforward as you like. the turbo goes faster for cheaper. that's about as simple as it gets.

Typhoon.. both stock standard, it'll blow the XR8 into the weeds. When you start modifying them, $5000 on the Typhoon will give you a lot more power then $5000 on the XR8. It'll never have that V8 rumble though.
