I would have to say the C6, but I would have to say the GT, I would take one of each.

The Mustang. The Corvettes are fast, but they just dont feel as tight and as well built as a Mustang.

Mustang, definatly. People say the Mustang and Vette both have great bang for the buck, but that the Vette is a little ahead in that category. No way. You can buy an '05 GT for $25000 or a C6 for $40000. Now if you put $15000 into the Mustang, it will go a heck of alot faster than C6 for the same price! Plus, the mustang looks alot better.

I think hes talking about the 07' Shelby GT500, if not I would go with the Corvette, sell it, then buy a Mustang GT and have extra money left over.

I'm torn between the two. The new Mustang GT is the first Mustang worth buying since the Mustang I and the new Corvette is the first vette worth buying since the ZR1 and 2g vettes.

Thumbs down

Well..i'm a big Vette fan, and always will be, Sure I'd own a mustang, But where's the Fiberglass body, The new Vette has better gas mileage numbers, and where is the fully indepent suspention, and the big question, Where is the mustang in all the world Class Races, I hear C5r C6r alot, but I've never heard about the Cobra, in fact in don't even know if they have a name for a race series mustang

No, they're not. They used to be, but since the C5 and C6 iteration they have become everything anybody ever thought they should be (perhaps you haven't read the road tests on the newer vettes?). The C4 was really kind of a disgrace.

This question is easy... commuter car with a V8 or a modern muscle car... let's see here... oh, right, we're comparing apples and oranges again. The Mustang doesn't even find itself in the same class as a Corvette, this is retarded.

Your statement is so flawed its ridiculous. First off you cant down tune a car you can tune it down or detune it.

Second of all there is no Z07. The top of the line 06 Corvette will be a Z06 not a Z07. I have told so many people than and i get so tired of it. The name Z06 came out in 63 it was a race ready corvette. It is not a chronological name that goes up every time there is a new iteration. (like C4 to C5 to C6) its a classic moniker that has been and will always be like ss or z28.
It will be and 06 Corvette (C6) Z06 with an LS7.

The fastest corvette i would have to say would be the Lingenfelter twin turbo 7liter. Motortrend ran it to 0-60 of 1.9 second. Let me see your hammer beat that.

I may be wrong on this one so feel free to prove me wrong but im almost positive there was no 512 Cobrajet 69 mustang. Oh and if no mustang after 69 was good what about the 70 boss 302, 70 boss 429 or 71 Mach 1
