It's not like it's lacking for power, anyway, it puts down >700whp as it is (sans NOS), if anything we were going to detune it a little, to make it more manageable on the street. We still might, to insure that when it is driven there's less of a chance that it could get damaged.

The Cayenne is okay, but it's hardly what I'd call a sports car, it weighs 2 1/2 tons.

What does it look like? I remember at some point that you had found a Skyline that was LHD, is that the one?

Porsche was dead the day they started comparing the Cayenne Turbo with the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Oh how the mighty have fallen!

As a Jeep owner, it was a great day.

Maybe you can change the *boom* *boom* stereo with a set of Focal Utopia Be No°7 Kit. :D

 

At least, 700whp is perfectly reasonable for an R34 GT-R. Those RB26DETT engines can hold a lot more.

I think I read somewhere that the Panamera is one of the better selling model lines for Porsche. That's also sad.

I'm waiting to see a Panamera done up in full "donk" style. :rolleyes:

I find that difficult to believe. There is only one round here and usually there are a dozen of everything nearby. Have to admit, though, it's pretty spiffy for a Hyundai:D

OK, maybe my information is old or wrong or both - it looks like Panamera sales are down in 2013 because people are waiting for the 2014.

I think it's a horrible looking car. The only Porsche I can think of that was uglier was the 928.

The Panamera looks like it's dragging it's humongous arse behind it.

I figure all of that was installed to his preference, so I'm going to leave it be and treat it like it's his car but he loaned it to me while he's on vacation. I'll make provisions for it to go to a museum at some point, but for now I'm going to drive it.

There's headroom for the NOS (under-seat tanks on the passenger side, of course), an extra 200bhp of it).

That's the one, of course, at the time "formerly owned by Paul Walker" wasn't as much of a big deal.

Wow that is a mint GTR :D They would be pretty hard to find......... 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
As a first car I would love an GTR something like an R33 since they are the cheapest......

Beautiful car. I need another ride in a Skyline - man, they are fun!
