Uh-huh. More for you, man. ;) When I was shopping for a Porsche, I
test drove a couple of 911 Turbos. Stock at the dealership, those cars
pulled me into the seat so hard I couldn't draw a breath of air into my
lungs. That scared the living shit out of me...I wound up buying the
normally aspirated version.

Yeah I'll give you that...but I'm so burnt out on the "no power" and
"must self destruct after 75K miles" bullshit of the 80s and 90s that I
just don't want to hear the words "American car" anymore.
