Should I buy a GTO or Cts V

Hello everyone. I am going to buy a car and am currently looking at two cars. One is a 2006 ibm gto with blue interior and the other is a 2007 cts v. My plans are to turbo and daily drive the car but also take it to the track once in a while. What car do you recommend I get and if you can please explain your choice that would be great. The gto has 58k miles and the cts v has 87k miles. the gto is stock and the v has d2 coilovers. I might even supercharge if I decide to not go the turbo route. Thanks everyone

Welcome to the forum.

Being a sports car and sporty car person, I'd say get the gto.

i vote for the CTSV.. but i vote you get an 05-06 with the 6.0 ls2 in it. cant beat a 4 door cumfy sedan , that will just rock and decimate.. to me when i see a GTO driving around im like, " ok thats kinda cool"... but the CTSV is one of those "this guy knows whats up" cars... espically when you toast a subaru or other tuner car, who has to be like i just got rocked by a family sedan.

05/06 GTO is the way to go. Only issue will be parts sourcing that are non drive line related.
