Well lets start this thread right, first of all while going to the liquor store I ran into a formula 1 at a red light. I thought that being that he was talking on the phone and an older gentleman that I would just **** around and gun 1st gear. whoops he gunned it and by the next light(over an 1/8th mile) I was beat by a half a car lenght. So sucking up my pride I drove to the next light and low a porche carrera. well the light turned and he was behind a slower car and I did not think he was going to play till the lanes turned into three and boom he was gone no chance to even react. traffic slowed him down and I got next to him. I was rolling at 40mph in 2nd when he or she hit it all I can say is I kinda kept up with him. I dont know if he was playing or racing but he never got over a car length away from me. that was well over 2 miles of fucking around. granted I never took him but he never left me either. I dont want numbers on this thread so if so **** off. This was real tv not Road and Track numbers. I know he could beat me but a $20,000 Saturn kept up with a $100,000 car, now that is a mastercard commercial.

HAHAHA this reminds me of this one thread on Svtperformance.com. This civic said he kept up with a ferarri *don't know if spelled right* and the whole time the ferarri was playing with him making him THINK he was keeping up.

That carrera was playing with you man. If he wanted to be forreal, he would of made you look like you were just sitting there. No way in the world your maxed out supercharged car would of beat that 605RWHP car. He was playing with you oh and BTW the car is $440k not $100k.

Um

I don't think he was talking about a Carrera GT. If he were, then that car was probably just normally accelerating. There is a Carrera that is not slow but not the fastest, with a 0-60 in 5.0 secs (sorry to bring numbers) so his story is feasable.

Carrera is a beast, dude. There is a Porsche dealership near where I live, I took one one with my other car BMW 330ci, which has similar performance numbers as the Red Line, let's just say it was like a Red Line against a Toyota Echo, no contest.

I don't doubt that he played with him, nothing wrong with that. Had that Carrera put it down to the floor and intended on leaving your ass, he would have. Hey, at least he considered you quick enough to have some fun with! Good times....

I love those people who drive those fast expensive cars that still like to play with you. Its fun as you are just gunning the hell outta it and they are just moseying along there way and then they wave and BAM! goodbye. They become jackasses when they slow down and let you start winning by a bit and then break the tires loose and their gone...it breaks your heart....lol.

I don't think the carrera guy was playing with him. The base carrera's aren't that fast. I beat one before. Pulled a good two to three cars on him when I let off to exit. I believe his story. Thumbs up to ya. Good kill.... This is what sport compact tuning is all about. Making people feel silly for paying extra for interiors and a name....

Have faith in your redline guys.... Carrera's are quite beatable. Base models aren't that much faster than a boxter. No BS flag from me. Once again good kill.

the knew ones have 325 hp, 273 lb tq, and a top speed of about 180 (according to the porsche site) so they aren't going to be that easy to beat. Unless of course it was a older one and the had less power, which i don't know.

Not to drop a cold shoulder on the story but if the guy really was racing u then he can't drive the car. granted the carrera isn't the fastest porche but its fast enough to take a Redline on. unless it was one of the older carrera's a boxter I could believe no offense man I just find it a lil hard to beleave. not saying it is impossible

akuma is full of lies, dont listen anything he says. He lies about pretty much everything from how much hp his car has to how fast it runs.

The Carrera was probably speeding to get the hell out of your shitty town.

The 993's ('95-'97) run with stock LT1's, 996 Carreras ('98-'04) run close to what an auto LS1 runs: the new 997's ('05+) run a bit quicker than the manual LS1 runs (top end wise: auto and manual LS1's run about the same from a dig through the 1/4, but past that it's all about the manual). It all depends on what year and model Carrera it was, to help determine if he was messin' around or really on it.
