Well, yes - but I think I'm already "skating on thin ice", especially in the 50 mile radius around my home, as I normally go out for a 1/2 hour to 1 hour "fun drive" every Saturday and Sunday morning. These cars are just so addictive, and they goad you on to drive faster all the time, especially as you become familiar with the extreme capabilities of the car.ltadmin said:Ah Com'on, don't we have any BAD DOGS in the Pac with "stories to tell"??????

Beatiful. I wouldnt have let him go though. Reminds me of something similar that happen to me. I was rolling down the PCH, in S. Cali. And I pass a Porsche Delearship right? And as I pass by a brand spankin new Porsche 911 Turbo busts out, and gets right in my ass. I was like, whatever, until he juked from behind me to the next lane and slammed on the gas. Oh boy, he had it coming, or so I thought, there was a red light in front of us, we both slowed down, he was a gentlemen in about his late 40s to early 50s, had a cigar in his mouth, I wanted to laugh, he had his window lowered, he glanced at my vehicle and than looked at me, motioning me to lower my window. So I did. "Nice car." He says. "Thanks." I reply, he revvs his engine, and yells "Turbo." I laugh and say "Twin Turbo." I did not rev, but I knew he got the message :evil: He sees my V12 placed next to my Lexanis. And does a little: "Hmph!" and proceeds to rev his engine. I raise my window, pissed that I lowered it right after getting a car wash. It left streaks you know. And the light snapped green. And everything thereforth was lost in blur as all 600 lbs of Torque slammed into me, rocketing me off the line, the Porsche growing smaller and smaller in the rear view. This time I couldnt hold it in, I deserved a grin, I even had my ESP on. Loser. At the next light, he lowered his window, and I followed. "I just got it, I still need to get cut-outs and a chip in it." I looked at him but din't respond, and when the light turned green a few minutes later and he slammed on the gas, I waited a full second and than some, before proceeding to unleash the beast. Porsche people are extremly cocky. :whip: Sorry its so long.john said:My favorite moment so far was on a early Sunday morning. I was on my way to pick my son up from Boy Scout camp about 90 minutes away. I was cruising down a six lane highway at about 80 mph with no other cars on the road. I see a speck in my mirror coming up fast. A few seconds later a new twin turbo 911 came by me at 120 mph. I pulled up on his ass and we just cruised nose to tail for the next 20-25 minutes at 120-130. It wasn't the fastest I've been but it was a great drive on a perfect day (78 degrees and beautiful). The road stayed clear and we never broke speed.
