Stop blaming Porsche! They didn't kill Paul Walker!
Okay, I'll be serious for a minute. What's up with the media and the Carrera GT hate and FUD? We've gotten 4 calls this week from various news outlets wanting interviews with me about the "dangerous" CGT and wanting a ride-along to "see how terrifying it is". One, "ain't nobody got time for that", my life is busy and what spare time I do have is precious, reserved for family and friends. Two, I don't want t be on the news, there's no benefit to it from what I can see. However, I did tell them that driving a car like the CGT is like having a big dog that's high-strung. If you stop respecting it and are too aggressive with it at the wrong time, it can bite you and inflict a lot of damage. That isn't the dog's fault, it's the owner's, for not using good judgement while handling it. It's still one of my favorite cars in the world but it isn't the same as jumping behind the wheel of a BMW or even a GT-R, it requires a lot more focus and familiarity.
Speaking of Porsche, Singer says my car will be here by next Friday. (It's my Xmas gift.) They asked when I'd be available to take delivery from them. "From you guys?" "Yes, we deliver all of them in person, to give the owner a fully detailed introduction to the car and show them all of its features." Holy cow, that's pretty cool.
Same crap went down in the 80's when some Cali execs secretary wound a 930 around a pole and killed em both. It's not hate, it's fear that someone let Frankenstein's Monster loose on the roads and now women and children are not safe. Truth be told there are a heap more severe accidents involving grocery getters that don't get press because they are not exotica.
