Whoa! The 930 made the list

It's good to see our 930 make the list of top 10 Porsches ever, according to Yahoo! I didn't think it'd be there. But it did kick off the turbo and that's significant.

It seems to be nearly correct. I would have slid the 928 out & slotted the GT3 in.

Not surprised it made the list..
However, I hate the BS that yahoo, MSN, Bloomberg, WSJ and some of the others spout about vehicles that the numb-nutz writers typically no nothing about, other than what they've read. Details are usually wrong.

just stay'n...

At least in the article they got the spelling right.

Well, f***ing of course it made the list!! Was there any doubt??? And who the he77 here needs to hear it from some Bozo no no that it did?? It's kinda like when Marlon Brando won the Oscar and refused to show up for the awards ceremony. He didn't need the Academy''s pat on the back...

Another list I read from a major media conglomerate just named it one of the most dangerous cars ever made. How cool is that?

If you don't have a female companion to leave behind anymore, then what kind of "maker" do you become when you get tail happy and slam backwards into the wall and give up the ghost?

And Les has it right:

Soccer moms should not drive these cars. 930 owners live on the edge.

It may be their 10 best but it is certainly not mine. Any of my 10 would have to have 3 pedals. As nice and as technological as the 918 is...I would still take a Carrera GT over it.

I'm the proud owner of 30% of the cars on this list. My 87 930 is joined by my 61 Austin Healey Sprite, AKA Bugeye, and my 70 Corvette convertible. WooHoo!!!
