Default Ultimate Turbo Performance

Not really to do with the PT, but my friend who works at the Porsche dealer is lending me a 03' 911 Turbo to let one of my customers test drive. Gonna be hard going back to the PT!

Take a couple friends and their golf clubs with you in the 911. Oh, wait, you can't.

Take a tent, a couple of sleeping bags, a big cooler and some fishing gear in the 911. Oh, wait, you can't.

Put a couple of mountain bikes and all your cycling gear in the 911. Oh, wait, you can't.

Now I'm not knocking the 911 - I love that car. But for the same price you could buy:

1. Economy car (sort of) - PT Cruiser N/A 5-speed
2. Sports car (with S1 & some suspension mods) - PT GT
3. Convertible (with some grunt) - PT GT Convertible
4. Station Wagon - what else? A PT of any iteration!

Heck, you'd still have a few bucks left over to mod them all and give them each their own personality. You might a new garage though.

Point taken, but I still have to fold down one of my rear seats to get my clubs in, same with my mountain bike. If I could personally afford the Porsche, I could afford a second car for biking and such.

And as much as I love my PT, its not a sports car.(but a TON of fun!!)

Now see, I thought I had a good argument for the PT, but when you guys start getting REALLY logical about things, well, I'm not so stubborn as to never listen to someone else's opinion! 415HP, all wheel drive, and insert-name-of-your-favorite-blond-here. Opinion swayed.[8D]

Driving home I was still quite impressed how much performance my PT has. None of the dreaded "oh god I'll never be happy again".

On another note, another customer of mine who ownes a few different sports cars ('04 Viper, M3, 911 turbo, GT500kr) loves driving my PT! Says something.
