Looking to get my first Viper and am debating between getting a Gen II GTS or a Gen III/IV coupe. If I get get a Gen II will go for a 2002 with 15k or less miles. If I get a Gen III/IV I would probably get a 2006 maybe a 2008 with 30k or less miles. How do the cars compare? Will one be more reliable? Is one better for a first time owner? I plan to drive the car a lot, own it for a long time, and learn to drive it well. Maybe even some autocross. Here are the pros and cons I see of each car. However, I have not driven either so I don't know what I am talking about. 2002 pro: Great looking design with a lot of history Cheaper to buy May become a collector car 2002 cons: Brakes are not up to the performance level of the rest of the car Older (will the car be less reliable and harder to fix?) 2006/2008 pro: More power. (However, 450 is more than enough for me right now) Better brakes Better interior (In my opinion) 2006/2008: Does not look as good (in my opinion) More expensive. Thanks for the help and feed back.
