Today i raced a Porsche 944 (non turbo). We started the race at around 35 mph and by the time i reached 70 mph i was over a car lenght in front of him. Heh heh now i get to tell my friends i beat a porsche.
in regards to the last post: to my knowledge, the normally aspirated 944 was equipped with a 3.0 liter horizontally opposed 4 cylinder. i came close to buying a 1986 944 about a year ago. i test drove it and was not impressed. it may have been due to the condition of the car, but it was really slow. i mean i can honestly say my 2.0 could beat it easily. one thing i will say in this car's defense: this thing handled better than anything i have ever driven. it took turns like you wouldn't believe. by the way... the normally aspirated 944 is one thing, but i would be pretty willing to bet that a 944 turbo would be a lot tougher than the base model!!!
My uncle has one of those cars and they are a joke. Porsche was trying to make a car a little more mainsteam that they could build in large amounts and keep they price down so people could afford it. It is not that bad of car , but by porsche standards it is really bad.
