@Weston, I clarified what the article said...not arguing with it... And I was unaware missing one letter on an iPod Touch qualifies myself as unintelligent.

they made the 959. Then they made the carrera. but somewhere in the time between these 2 cars being introduced, they made this thing. consider your gap bridged.

It's a sick car, but they shouldn't have gone with the boxer headlights, shoulda stuck with the normal complete oval versions like on the current 911's (knowing that those were their style then)

Didn't Boris Becker briefly own one of these before his mother told him to sell it?

Corey Mullis Aug 02, 2012
