It was a perfect day for driving. I got to spend the last day of September out with my cousin and his 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo. This is, by far, the fastest car I’ve ever ridden in. It’s a 4 seat, all-wheel-drive beast of a car. In 6th gear it can pull away faster than my car can in 2nd gear…that’s what you get with an engine tuned to 500+ horsepower.
The one thing that became clear was the sheer impracticality of this car; it’s no good in traffic because you have too much power and too little space to have fun and on the open road it can be fun for all of 3 seconds until you’re double the speed limit and getting a ticket, towed away, or peeling your car off a barrier. The track is where this thing belongs, or slowly creeping through the entertainment district of your nearest metropolitan city because…well…it’s beautiful, even if you’re not.
