me and a friend are having a arguement over which is better. What would u prefer, the Grand Am GT or the Grand Prix GT which has a faster 0-60 by .1sec but i would still rather prefer the Grand Am GT because i think it looks better

The Grand Am is lighter and smaller, but the Grand Prix has more engine to it.

There's a lot more mod potential in the Grand Prix too.

Iunno...i'm happy with my Grand Am. Either would have made me happy though.

Same here. It depends on how big of a car you want to drive. Hey guys, I have heard that the 00 Grand Am GT coupe does 0-60 in 7.3 sec and the 1/4 in 15.1. Can anyone verify this.

Grand Prix GT for me. More power under the hood.

It might have more power but according to the times I have seen on the grand am gt coupe, the grand am is faster. not to mention it handles better. i just wish i could remember where i saw that 0-60 time of 7.3 and the 1/4 in 15.1.

It is all in the numbers. I don't have em on me at the moment but I think the Grand Am GT pulls a .84g while the Grand Prix is somewhere near .79.

The Grand Am GT can't do the 1/4 mile in 15.1 cause its 0-60 was 7.7 secs last time I checked and even if it could do 7.3 sec 0-60 it won't be able to do that 1/4 mile. To get a quarter mile that fast you'll have to be doing 0-60mph in about 6.6 to 6.8 secs.

The Grand Am is a better handler, its a very good handler actually. I mean, its pretty close to the F-bodies handling last time I checked on it. Its a very nice car. But I'd prefer that Grand Prix GT. The grand prix is faster, more roomy, more comfortable, has a more powerful engine and looks pretty good, but looks wise I give them both tie, they're both very nice cars.

the 0-60 on the grand prix is 7.6 that not noticeable at all compared to 7.7 so faster is not realy a factor between the 2

See this is what really kills me. I can't find where I saw those times posted at. The time of 0-60 in 7.7 and the 1/4 came from motor trend and it was a sedan 99 version. Would a 00 coupe version be that much faster? I wish someone would do a new testing of the car.
