As for getting completely destroyed by other brand new 2019 cars in the 57,000 range, we'll have to wait and see. Also dont forget this thing is seriously detuned from the factory by keeping the 2 cat downpipe, and this car already comes with mods way beyond stage 2...a 800-1100 downpipe and tune will probably put it at or maybe even over 400 horsepower. I mean who puts a built block bigger turbo bigger injectors and pump and intake mods and keeps the stock downpipe? No one. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about that and how much horsepower is being corked up.
We don't need to wait and see. A Corvette Grand Sport is $56K and change brand new. Camaro ZL1's can be found for high $50's. Hell Camaro SS1LE's are low to mid $30K cars and are faster as well as PP2 Mustang GT. You can get a 700 mustang GT with PP2 for $50's. Your also talking GT350 money (used R), Camaro ZL1 1LE ballpark, etc.

This is where the $60k STI completely falls apart once you start talking track. There are just far too many cars available that will utterly destroy it for the same money or less.
