i think they all have to comply to the same restrictions when listing their power output, (SAE?) ....

but ya, the haf the price point is kinda a big deal... but what i find an even bigger deal is how the cars seem 10, 15, and 20 years later.

i work at a used import lots (when not going to school, my friend is the owner, we get lots of high hp cars , and we get some vettes and the odd special order porsche as well...

@ 15 years old the vettes look like crap and are often falling apart...
@ 15 years old the japanese cars are tech loaded and sometimes really fast, but they have 90's styling (okay really) and questionable reliability... if they are making the big numbers.
@ 10, 15, 20, 25, +++ years porsches, especially 911s look great, have a solid feel, and though they are not the fastest cars, they are still worth a good deal more....

just my 5 cents on the matter... i'd love to have either car, though i would actualy just turn around and sell them... both are tooooo fast for the street, no fun... 250-350hp in something a little lighters (under 2500lbs) w/o traction control, launch control or any of that stuff... and a few months rent.
