    Good read, and finally a comparison between the two.

    The gist is that the GTPP2 is a great car and a relatively great deal in comparison to the GT350 albeit with some cooling issues. The GT350 ends up outperforming on the track by about 2s per lap on Grattan and has the intangibles between the engine, transmission, and handling characteristics that ends up being worth it.

    I find it odd that they do a track comparison at Grattan, yet don’t show any times. Was the PP2 to close?

    Reread it. They don't show the times but the GT350 was approximately 2s faster.

    Agreed...tough to put in context what 2 seconds means without the lap times...

    2 seconds on a 2.2 mile track is significant. I'm surprised it's that far apart.

    Me too... I wish the magazines would give more details about who drove the cars, their driving skill, etc.
    Makes me wonder if they even drove the cars around the track on the same day with same driver.
    Enjoyed the reading though, since my PPL2 is in the garage and it's snowing outside....How many days of winter left?

    My bad...I looked at the 37 photos, They must have been on the track at the same time, or someone did a hell of a lot of photoshopping.

    So all things being (nearly) equal, the car with more horsepower is faster around the track. Who'da thunk?

    The faster car also costs $12,000 more. Who'da thunk x2.

    For sure-
    Lightning Lap is always interesting to me how the cars stack up against each other regardless of vehicle cost, horsepower, etc.
    I hadn't seen the chart that you just posted.
    Thanks for sharing.
