Great News Story and Video about New 911 turbo

Folks,

I thought you may enjoy this article in the Wall Street Journal and their review of the new 911 Turbo. I, especially, liked the video where he says "1970s turbos were a license to kill yourself."

Enjoy!

Thanks for that. I also liked the comment " the car swapped ends because it felt like it". What is amazing is that every Porsche turbo model was so far ahead of its time. My 23 year old car handles far better and out performs most new cars today. I just don't have any airbags. Oh yeah and I can't drink a cup of coffee or talk on the phone while I am driving my car. I never told my wife that my car was referred to as the "widow maker" The car demands respect and attention if you are going to drive it properly.

I stick with the 78. The new one has too many gismos.
