    What a shock--720 beats a 600 in straight line. Duh.

    I saw a 600 Lt today in person. Fit and finish was awesome as was the spec. Got me thinking but I am sticking with the 720 especially after adding the exhaust and down pipes. BTW, he traded a beautiful manual 911 Touring.

    Both great but the 720s Is the 63 corvette Sting Ray, The 1957 Chevy, The Series 1 Etype and the 275 GTB .
    Those cars were the game changer, The 720s "is" the game changer....
    But I love them both...

    Was that a surprise?

    At the end of the day, these cars are all so good (and far more capable than most drivers). It's about bragging rights at coffee.

    I've been a high performance driving instructor for a number of clubs and (not that I am the best. I'm far from it), I find it difficult to fully exploit my 570 on any piece of public pavement. I know that I don't want to go back, but sometimes I wonder if I had more fun wringing the life out of my old Fiat X1/9, back in the day.

    Debating this one hard (600LT vs 720S). I actually like the styling of the 600LT better, like the performance of the 720S better (duh), but the value retention seems to favor the 600LT as well. Arghh...first world problems. What do others think?

    I guess I think the opposite. I think 600LT is too gimmicky looking with too many pieces that look out of place.

    Think the 720 is a beautiful car. Of course completely subjective.

    As to value, I don't think 600 will hold up value wise as not true LE.

    720, buy right, for the win.

    Never did the instructor thing but plenty of track days with a 360C. And same here thinking about a past 2004 Mini Cooper S. Nothing but smiles with the 6-speed and supercharger whine! Cars, and especially super cars today are phenomenal to the point of being absurd.
