Summary:

Unreal, intoxicating performance.

Faults:

Car is magnificent.

General Comments:

Let me start off by saying that I am fortunate enough to know someone that owns this incredible automobile.

Owner drove me around for an hour or so - occasionally speeding up significantly to demonstrate the car's ability at accelerating.

Though I'm quite thin, I found it difficult to fit in the cabin comfortably.

Owner commented how the clutch was difficult to operate without stalling and had plans to sell the car because of this.

In the end, I still cannot believe I was a passenger in this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Have been lucky enough to sit in one, but not ride in one (let alone drive one).

Would love to know from someone in the know: how does it compare to the regular 911 Turbo or - say - a Ferrari F430?
