Notice Jay picked the car with the POLO. And what turned him on was the torque and the ability to go north of 7000 RPM. My car is only 100 lbs heaver. I've driven a Fat 2.6. It had great torque but did feel strained much past 5500 rpm. That's where the POLO really starts to make great music. I didn't have to have one till I went for a ride. Then I HAD to have one. My licence plate frame says "Handles like a 912. Goes like a 911". Under 125 mph the car can hang with most 3000 pound 300 hp newer Porsche's. 125 is not close to it's top speed, but the car get's a little floaty north of that. If you've never been in a car with a POLO put it on your bucket list. The 2nd one on the road is owned by the 901 Shop in Fl. When they let a customer go drive the car they come back and say "that's not possible". Don't believe it, go here.
