3000GT and Stealth = Same thing. 3000GT VR4 and Stealth GT Twin Turbo (It will say it on the back only) = Same thing.

A twin turbo one, yes. Depends on which Porsche. Are we talking about a Boxer or a GT2... Big difference. The twin turbo stealth'* run 13'* stock (I think mid) but with other modifications can be 12 or even 11'*.

I used to know a guy who had a Stealth and I know my Bonnie was faster. He had the baseline. I think the baseline had a quarter mile of around mid 15'*.

And for the Porsche, if it was a low end Porsche with a poor driver than it would be believeable that and descent car (such as a Bonneville even) could beat it. If this guy beat a good twin turbo Porsche than I am guessing he is anything but stock under the hood.

Those Stealths are nice, but the Twin-Turbo models are AWD so they weigh a ton.

Weigh over 4000 lbs for the twin turbo awd model but they do put down 320 hp and massive amounts of torque to all four wheels.

Older non-turbo Porsches and 2wd Porsches would probably lose to the stealth.

not to mention there is basically no turbo-lag. AWD cars launch extremely well (WRX, Talon, Stealth etc..) so they can easily rev up to around 4000 and dump the clutch with very little spinning. Just squat and go.
