Sites are never accurate since they get their times from magazines. According to magazines, the GT-S 6 speed can do 0-60 in anywhere from 6.6-7.8 seconds, and the 1/4 from 15 to 15.7 seconds. :rolleyes:

Blue, those are accurate numbers. Every car is different, every climate is different, and all drivers are different. It should say, "[email protected] results may vary".

No. They are not accurate. a 15.4 is STILL no where near close.

Accurate = something resembling truth. IMO

Not trying to flame ya!:gap:

They are accurate, but they are not precise. Know the difference. Also, those times do resemble the truth--the truth for what that driver managed in that car on that day. The situation is full of too many variables to fault the magazine or number as inaccurate.

But when you can only get a 15.6 in a car that is capable of atleast a 15.0. That is not an accurate test. Magazines give you general ideas. But they are not accurate.

Also, you said, "on that day". Thats the point. One test or even a weeks worth is not enough to determine a car's potential. I DO believe it is a good way to get a general idea but not an accurate method in the least.

Yes, you are now agreeing with me. Besides, there is no way you can say that the car is capable of at least a 15.0. I'll say it again, results may vary.

Yes, in that sense yes. Technically you have no prior info that would suggest a car being capable of such time. So to the general public I guess it IS an "accurate" report.
