Does anyone know the 60-0 mph stopping distance of a 930? Extensive specs like this seem to be hard to find for 930's (I once tried searching for the drag coefficient of a 930 Slant, but found no info on it), so I don't really think it'd be easy to obtain that info here either.
The 930 can lock up the tires easily so there's no shortage of power. The lack of ABS is what is going to increase the stopping distances. Learning how to threshold brake is a must to drive these cars fast. With modern tires it will stop pretty damn quick.
