Cool Just another wonderful morning in the turrrrbo!

Sorry, but I just had to reflect and share my driving experience into work this morning.

"It's such a perfectly crisp morning", I thought to myself as I slid into the plush black leather seats. Just like a kid with a new toy, I fired her up without hesitation, just to hear this monster bark to life and settle to a steady purposeful rumble.

For the first 10-15 minutes I babied her through the morning traffic, hoping I'd get a clear stretch of road to clear her throat a bit. The intercooler temp gauge was registering a cold 11DegC on the outlet and the throttle response was nice and crisp. She begged and tempted me to give her more throttle, but I had to resist until I got a clear lane ahead of me.

Eventually, the perfect opportunity presented itself. Pole position at a red light with the entrance to the FWY only 300m ahead of me I switched the EBC to the "insane preset" (1.2bar), gently engaged 1st gear and waited impatiently for the light to change. A few seconds before the lights were going to go green, I build up the revs just enough to get the turbo spooling and as soon as the lights changed, I unleashed the hounds of hell

The tacho swings to redline through 1st -> 3rd as the 285's struggle to maintain any form of traction. The telltale boost needle slams to 1.2bar in each gear as I fight the g-forces to reach for the next gear. The acceleration in this car is brutal, yet exhilarating.

It's moments like these that reminds me why I built this car. Uncivilised brutal raw power - There's really no substitute

There is nothing like the "aircooled" scent. I thought about marketing it because so many non porsche owners ask what kind of cologne I'm wearing, but Its just not something you can reproduce...

Yes, I know the scent you refer to

It just amazes me how damn FAST these cars are. They're basically a street legal racing car

Nothing quite puts a smile on my face like this car. I really don't know how I would ever go back to driving a "normal" car... not that I ever plan to

That scent, a lovely combination of metal, warmed oil and leather, should be a cologne!

Merv, by the looks of the list of added options you have on your 930, I believe yours is a bit faster than the norm. I do however get your point. I was scared enough when my car was stock. I might have an accident in my pants as soon as I get her back on the road with what I'm putting in her during this rebuild
