I want to see a 2009 917 with modern day: fuel injection, turbo technology, inter cooler technology, and the same weight that it had back then (no b.s safety crap.... and no lawyers either).

How about 997/934 tribute car with one turbo and weighing in a 2,500 lbs?

What about a Real 550 tribute car (could be based off the Boxter) with no interior, a GT-3 RS motor, and tipping the scales at 2,200 lbs (don't tell me it cant be done with technology today)

I will never know why the good old days of super cars are dead, but I do know that I will never forget the real from the fake. Todays cars from all manufacturers are a shell of what they used to be as far a quality of materials and imagination it concerned (who gives a rats ass about a Cayenne GTS???). If you think Porsche is the only one your wrong- Don't tell me that you think a 2008 Ferrari 430 has as much magic that the 512 TR did just a decade and a half earlier? Of course its faster through technology and a great car, but it is not half the Ferrari that the 512TR was.
