So I'm a little disillusioned by some of the option/trim limitations with the Stinger, and the total lack of availability of the color combinations I want (blue on red).
I've been looking again at the vehicles I was considering when I found out the Stinger was coming earlier this year. The M3, M4 or AMG C43. There are others I had not looked at - the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, for example. Yes, it's significantly more expensive than a loaded GT2, but it also has 505bhp.
So I'm really interested in discussing competitive alternatives to the Stinger..
Now you're starting down a road littered with land mines. I started this thread to discuss competition that includes the one feature that I desire in the Stinger, a lift back. If you want to discuss other vehicles, such as the Alfa Romeo, Bimmers or Mercs, then fine, but it does open a can of worms.
As for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.........God I'd love to have one, but I'd hate to live with one. My closest dealer, 40 miles away (which is actually closer than I expected, but still too far for a shuttle), higher insurance costs, higher maintanance costs, higher parts costs, steeper depreciation, ( especially if Alfa follows history to form).
Yes, Car & Driver compared the Alfa and Stinger together in a test and the Alfa won (no surprise), but really, it was like comparing an apple to an orange.
