i cant understand why the 911 Turbo is everybodys goal, the R8, the Gt-R...Snake-eyes said:it beats a porsche turbo like it was meant to.. what is there to complain about?
so what the pagani zonda, carrera gt, and z06 is faster.. it was the cars goal
because they say a 911 turbo can be driven daily..its a luxury sports car. Cars like the z06, pagani zonda, carrera GT, and carrera GT3 can't be driven daily confortibly..e60.deluxe said:i cant understand why the 911 Turbo is everybodys goal, the R8, the Gt-R...
its about $30,000 more than a GT3 which it isnt nearly as good as, most of the people who buy it are poseurs, just walk into a Porsche showroom, for every
5 Turbos 4 of them will be automatic and filled with options that make it slower like 21" wheels. the Turbo is a Cash Cow for Porsche. thats why the came out with a convertible a couple years back.
proves drivers make a differnce..friedk said:The car got 7.38..it's in the damn opening post of the topic.
Why are you referencing the older time you posted?
Much is being made of the car's lap time at the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany. Mizuno claimed a time of 7minutes 38 seconds, compared with 7:43 for a Porsche 911 GT3 and 7:32 for a Carrera GT, but he was anxious to point out that there had been "two wet patches on the circuit." Indeed, he mentioned the "wet patches" so many times that you wondered why Nissan simply hadn't waited for a dry day.
Mizuno reckoned that a time of around 7:30 should have been possible in the dry, but that going much faster would have required hand-cut slicks, which isn't "real world." Bizarrely, Nissan admitted to having different test drivers for different lapping. While Chief Test Driver Toshio Suzuki operates in the 7:30-7:40 range, his right-hand man is a 7:40-7:50 man. It's amazing how much the "Ring vernacular" has entered the Japanese psyche.
