I did not keep this going. Please check the post above mine. The person who actually quoted your post and highlighted that section.

I simply commented and asked what was meant by real performance cars.

I think the vehicles I pointed out fall into this section. All of them I just didn't give specific models or anything. So are you trying to make me look stupid or something.

OK they come from the factory tuned better and better performance. But still you pay thousands of dollars more for this vehicle over a base Version to make it faster. Only difference is Factory did the work and not you.

Impressive I admit. PLus here you are actually comparing more power to power.

Nice about power and the factory warrenty, but some people don't want to spend $30k on a Mustang.

So this is the only part that really answers my quesiton as far as Define Real performance cars. Are you considering above mentioned car performance. If So I can go along with that compared to are cars they are more performace driven.

I will copy my answer above "OK they come from the factory tuned better and better performance. But still you pay thousands of dollars more for this vehicle over a base Version to make it faster. Only difference is Factory did the work and not you." And just a side note I like the MazdaSpeed 3 personally.

Cobalt is still a Cobalt just with different engine and the SRT 4 is still a Neon

I was never bashing anyone or calling anyone out. Just a simple quesiton and you come back basically trying to make sound like I don't know anything. Trying to cut me down and call me out and I didn't even start anything.

Also I am not saying anything is bad with cars mentioned. I am just referring to the part about putting thousands into them. Based on Vehicle model.
