Re: porsche 911

either a carrera 4s or a turbo, although i should think it was the 4s, turbo would have just disapeared unless your running 400+ bhp

Re: porsche 911

I've found that a lot of "supercars" have trouble pulling away from the Scooby. They stuff you in the end but they have a lot of trouble shaking you off their tail.
I've played with a few Porsche's and Ferrari's and after the adrenaline rush and we've both slowed down I've often got a thumbs up and a smile.
I get a lot of satisfaction knowing the value of my car (6k)and then comparing it to how much they have probably spent (60k +++)

Re: porsche 911

Ive had a bit of fun with a 911. pi$$ed it off the line & up to about 70mph then it went past me & off into the distance I think he was so shocked at the start when i let fly at the lights it took him a bit of time to gather himself
