Time to choose, 370Z or..........

A 1984 Testarossa. Why not, everyone else has some kind of thread comparing the Z to everything from a bugatti to a frickin' wheelbarrow.

I think I would be happy to have the experience behind the wheel of the Testarossa. Not so sure I would want the experience of owning one though.

Is a thorough test drive an option?

Oil change for a Z at the dealer: $50

Oil change for a Testarossa at the dealer: $12,000

Good luck.

Change your own oil......$13 for 5 quarts at walmart lol Might be tough to find the filter there, though.

For maintenance costs.

The Truth About Ferrari Maintenance Costs » Ferrari DIY, Classified, News & More

Not that bad IMO.
If you are the type to only put about 3-5K miles a year on the car then why not. If you only drive your Z that much then you already know it is an impractical car to have. You bought it for fun, you bought it for the enjoyment of driving a sports car.

Alas, I cannot be that impractical as my Z is my DD.
But if I could be that impractical right now I would.

I'd go with the wheelbarrow. That way you can be equal opportunity and pick up fat chicks.

A 30 year old car or a newish one. Unless the name is everything to you, get the Z.

the 370z... the Testarossa will cost too much at the end. Then only being driven like 4-6times a month. Not worth it for me.

1. the Testarossa looks insanely dated
2. 10 mpg
3. cost of maintaining a 30 year old car (Ferrari or not)
4. a slower 0-60 time than the z


Is this a real comparison?

Hey guys, I need help choosing between the 370Z or the 370Z.

Dude, the 370Z sucks. Get the 370Z.

Yeah man, the 370Z handles way better than the 370Z. Looks better, too.

Dude, 370Zs are a dime a dozen. Get the 370Z instead, it's more exclusive.

OP is a troll. No one compares the 370Z to the 370Z. They aren't even in the same class.

The 370Z has better doors than the 370Z.
