But I test drove this 996 Turbo yesterday and I’m suddenly questioning whether I need to spend 40% more on a Turbo than a base C2 to gain a whole bunch of speed and grip that I’ll use about 20% of on a regular basis. Age is catching up to me and I don’t appreciate it.
I guess I decided to call it the Porsche Florio last year. Whatever, it looks to me as if they are testing both the Mission E and the upcoming Stinger/CT5-sized Porsche sports sedan. I swear automakers are reading my thoughts (which is impossible since Verizon owns the rights to my mind data).
The first one in the US. Located at the Porsche HQ in Atlanta. It arrived yesterday. Dead sexy in my opinion. I’m not a huge fan of the standard Panamera, but this does it for me.
With a lap time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds the real news is that Porsche went full-Porsche on this one, kin. They did this lap in front of a Notary. They notorized their laptime.

More pics from the Grand Prix Fest/Vintage races when I get around to editing them. I took too many.....
It’s been said, time and again, that meeting your heroes will only lead to disappointment.
I wish I had these graphics on my 928
Stolen from the FP, this Porsche Panamericana concept car has tires with the Porsche crest as part of the tread!!
I feel like there’s room for a follow up to my previous piece on the Le Mans Prototype 1-Hybrid subclass, now that there’s been additional news, including the news that Porsche is terminating their LMP1 program after this season is over.
Colleague got these for his 991 GTS (yes, centrelock wheels).
