Ok, so you didn't have time to do a feature on a car that we've never seen before, but you had time to feature a car we've already seen that has new paint and rims.


That makes sense. *Rolls eyes*

I remember reading about the Porsche 917 being so fast that the drivers used to back off at the end of the Mulsanne straight because they didn't want to go any faster. Needless to say, that got me hooked on Porsche early as a kid.

Saw some vintage Alfas, a 356 (authentic), Lambos (including a Countach), Ferraris, all manner of Porsches, and a slammed S2000 to top it off.

@greenroadster  Considering how long it took to sell the Ring, I would imagine maintenance and property taxes alone would make this thing barely profitable. The fact it sold to 'enthusiasts' and not business-minded individuals suggests it offered poor returns as an investment.

There needs to be some sort of quantitative system for scoring cars based on a variety of areas (performance, visuals, quality of build, etc.) to be completed by all the Speedhunters editors and then used to rank the cars. Similar to how most car magazines conduct car comparisons.


You could then have discussions summarizing why editors ranked each car SUBJECTIVELY which would be far more interesting than talking about how "this car absolutely blew up and got so many shares". I don't give a shit about how 'viral' some car went, I want to know what people think about a car terms of how we usually determine how good a car is.

@Larry Chen @Jmayhem Yeah, power-steering and ABS make the 964 far more enjoyable as a DD compared to the 930. Only downside (for any air-cooled Porsche mind you) is that you have to do a valve adjustment every 12,000 miles which is quite pricey/time-consuming maintenance for a daily driver.

If you want to buy a 911 for use as a track rat, just get a 930. They're pretty much identical to a 964 but a little less sophisticated and a lot more fun to drive - the 964 is well known for being one of the more sedate generations of 911.

This car shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as a 250 GTO, 300SL or Miura.

 

Let's see, cars derived from ground-breaking and historically significant race cars/the first mid-engined car of all time or some luke warm front-engined V12 GT car. Give me a break.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you.

 

While race cars from the 60/70/80s have the sheer lunacy associated with unbridled regulation, I would wager that just about none of the racers from that area would be able to handle the sheer speed that today's race cars are able to achieve.

 

I'm pretty sure taking a corner at 5+ G's is as difficult, if not more difficult than trying to keep a 1000+hp, sub-2000 lbs. race car with no electronic aids going straight.

964's are great visually, but are dynamically quite boring compared to 930's or 993's.

 

However, compared to most other performance cars, they're pretty amazing!

 @Option86 The Turbo has been the 'GT" version of the 911 for the past few generations. If there's any version of the 911 that suits an automated manual, it's the Turbo.
