Haha..... I was thinking the same thing. Here we go again.:rolleyes::lol:

No offence to the OP. Just this has been beaten to death. Search around on the 2012 threads. It's been discussed quite a bit and it leads to senseless bickering.:lol: All these threads end the same way.

Yay...This is going to be great. Happy New Year. I think it's the paint that's making it slower. I heard they used 24 coats.........When will they learn.:rolleyes:

Of course it's the weight......more luxury, more amenities, more insulation, more rigid body structure......it all adds up.

But a vehicle weighing almost 2 tons doing 0-60 in 4.6s isn't too shabby in anybody's book.

It wasn't too long ago that most so-called "sports cars" couldn't even come close to that.

Re

Im not putting the wk2 down , i love it, cant wait to pick up one with miles next summer ... But really how is a 6.1 faster or even equivent to a 6.4? .. I thought that was the point with the engine change ,more power,faster. Its at least they couldve done to justify the price....might as well kept the 6.1

Why not speak of performance

Why is complete performance ever talked about on here.

Performance:
-agility
-acceleration
-top speed
-stability
etc.???

Its not as fast because of the added weight but i think thats just off the line acceleration. WK2 should put the WK1 to shame on a road course.

Overall performance IS better in the WK2
