I like road racing much better and the new Z1 will take just about anything (stock) on a road course circuit.

Additonally, many cars will age well if you only drive them 2 or 3 thousand miles a year.
BTW, how could you afford an original Cobra. I am not trying to be a smart ass.

The biggest reason why they are trying to sell the Viper name is because those cars get 10 mpg on a good day, if you don't drive it hard. If you drive it hard, you get around 8mpg.
A 3,200 pound car, with an 8 liter V10 that gets around 550 hp and 550lb torque with bad fuel economy that costs $80,000 will not sell well with today's high fuel prices.
All of these numbers might not be exactly right, but that are close, since I am basing them on an article that I read in a car magazine a while ago about the Viper.
