stoplight dragraces are the problem he's talking about. Those rarely get past 45-50 mph.

They wouldn't be that special if they weren't fast (would just be another vintage 911 - just fatter than most), and they get a lot more special the farther away from stock (performance wise - not talking about looks) they are taken. And you can bet yer ballsack that anyone who is gearhead at heart cares more about how fast these cars are than what their supposed unicorn status is.

yeah...I see. I guess based on your figures the 930 remains safe from minivans for now. personally, I won't be going out hunting for minivans but that's just me

For the first several weeks of ownership with our '87 turbo cab I did not drive with spirit.

These can be dangerous in the hands of a novice, does the term "widow maker" ring true to anybody?
