The 930 made a another list.

The 930 recently made the top 5 list as one of the "most macho cars." In this list, the 930 has some very good company as a "bucket list car." I don't put a whole lot of stock in these lists, but they are still fun to read.

Bucket list

Happy to say I got to drive 3 cars on that list. If it were my list I would
have to say these 4 cars and one motorcycle.

1) Porsche 550 spyder
2) Ferrari P4
3) Dusenberg 1936
4) Shelby Mustang GT 500 1967
5) MTT Y2K motorcycle powered by a Bell helicopter turbine engine.
9 sec quarter mile, top speed 225+. $150,000+

I get a kick out of these reviews: "...probably the one most capable of preventing the fulfillment of one’s automotive bucket list". Apparently anyone who has ever driven or owned a 930 has been killed whilst behind the wheel. Guess that makes us all ghosts...

The turbo’s abrupt nature could make for scary driving at inopportune times (like the apex of a corner). But it’s the car’s ability to bite back that can make it so much fun and a genuine accomplishment to master.
This is the exact reason why I love 930s.

930 doesn't come close to making my drive list (though I think its one of the most beautiful cars ever made).

Here's my list (but maybe its beyond bucket):

1) 1967 lotus 49 (or really anything from that f1 season, ya know, I could just end the list here if I needed to).
2) Porsche 718rsk wiiiith the flat 8
3) Porsche 917k
4) Peugeot 205 T16 (group b)
5) Any modern F1 racer
