I agree with the comment above. GM's 3800 only produces 200 hp as well, 240 if its supercharged. Keep in mind That The GTP weighs more than the Stratus, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Stratus could easily keep up with it, if not beat it.

Actually, he never said anything about traffic at all. I didn't choose to be the hard ***, as you, obviously very well educated, put it. Cursing just makes you look even less intelligent than you already are. I chose to be the messenger of fact. By the way, yes my 3.8 has only 240 hp, but it's the torque advantage that would allow my GTP to easily dispatch a Stratus R/T. Also, there are a lot of vehicles that would "hand my GTP the beat down", as Mr. Educated said, I never denied that. I simply stated that I would easily handle a Stratus. I will repeat my message: Be informed before you speak. And please tone down the cursing, you already sound dumb enough.

I have owned both a 1997 grand prix gtp and a 2003 stratus R/T. The GTP was an Auto and the Stratus is a stick. I am thinking with those two cars it would be a very close run up to 60. I think car and driver has the GTP at 6.7 to 60 and the stratus at about 7.0. So like it or not they are comparable.

Ha ha, the trash talker who wants to race everybody with his GTP finally comes out of the woodwork to defend himself! It's funny that you get so mad that somebody stood up to you, because you're the one who started out insulting people with your comment on bringing your mommy's Cherokee to race a guy who never said a word about racing. You never stated a single fact in your March 25th comment, only a lot of hot air and unfounded opinion. Apparently you can dish it out, but can't take it.

Nobody should really care whether or not your GTP is faster than the stratus R/T. For one thing I would certainly hope so considering the fact that it costs about 10k more comparably equipped brand new.

Try getting a grand prix, or ANY new GM v6 with a manual transmission.

10,000 dollars less brand new. That may be true, but this is about a 2003 Stratus, hardly a new ride. By the way, a stock GTP will definitely have the advantage over a stock Stratus R/T. Torque is thy friend, my son.

Wow...Stratus??? GTP??? Get some real cars, then start talking about racing. Stop wasting your time.

Yeah! I got an extra 2,000 horsepower out of my Honda Civic by bolting on an aluminum wing, and an extra 3,000 horsepower by putting on a Pep Boys fart-can muffler! Now it makes 6,000 horsepower at 200,000 rpms like I read about in a magazine, and I routinely blow the doors off Chevettes and Beetles. Or at least it will when I get my new pinstripes on.

NO NO NO don't do that!! the poor boy would wreck it!!!

If he tried to drive it like his little stratus he would end up in a tree a mile down the road!

My lamb 07 is cool, but I think that I wasted 1000000 and that's not all taxes, and gas. just get a good car that gets good miles per gallon! try to save money to spend with your families

Well, this is all a can say to you all.

I have a 96 Avenger ES, 97 Accord, 98 Grand Prix GTP, 04 Grand Am GT, and just bought an 03 Stratus RT..

As crazy as it might sound, my 2 favorites are the Avenger and the Stratus.. these 2 cars are the most comfortable cars I have, along with decent performance..

As for the GTP, I'm thinking my Stratus would probably keep up with it. The Pontiacs are crap, which I had to learn the hard way last month when doing down a hill hydroplaning doing 30 hitting a curb; CAR TOTALLED. The impact was so light I didn't even budge or realize the airbags came out. There was no body damage to the car; in fact people that drove by thought I was just getting pulled over. The impact warped the frame of my car, pushing everything off, making nothing work anymore. The GTP has so many recalls I can't even begin to start, although I love that car and will never get rid of it. Anytime a car is broken the HONDA IS ALWAYS THERE :) MOST RELIABLE HUNK OF CRAP THAT EXISTS.

I agree with the guy above... my brother has a 98 Avenger, and I just bought a 2003 Dodge Stratus RT. In my opinion, they are two of the best cars for the price. So if you wanna brag about your GTP, go ahead, Pontiacs are pieces of crap.
