well this was pretty embarrassing, yet also quite humbling
Ran into a newer porsche 911T which is pretty Ironic because me and tegs and have talking about them a bit lately and how they are bad ass and we will own one someday... well anyways, I am cruising on a 4 lane street on my way home from school at about 45mph. I see a nice silver 911 coming up that had just turned onto the street. I slow down to about 35mph (speed limit is 40mph) hoping he catches up so I can get a good look at it (these are one of my favorite cars). So he catches up and slowly passes me and I am in a complete daze just admiring his car as I see the "turbo" emblem shinning off of the trunk.
I get to speed with him and keep looking at him.. after about 20sec of me staring at him he finally looks over and I give him two big THUMBS UP and he smiles and throws a thumb up back my way. (seemed like a cool guy, in his early 30's)........
So I get into 3rd gear and up to about 45mph again and lunge forward and starts to speed up..... I hit it and instantly put about 3 cars on him and keep gaining. At this point I realize he is not racing and shut it down at about 65mph feeling like a COMPLETE idiot. So I slow down and am kinda pissed he didn't want to run.. then he beeps at me, rolls down his window and signals his finger forward a bunch of times
We get down to about 35mph and I am in boost in 2nd gear and hit it putting another good 2 cars on him rather quickly..... At this point I think he is just fcking with me and isnt going to race again! Then his front end lifts and within 2 sec he had made up 3 carlengths or more and makes me look like I slammed on the brakes even though i was full throttle in my catless wrx!
We did this a couple more times and even though everytime he would put like bus lengths on me within seconds it was so much fun! We come up on a left turn that we are both taking and we have the green arrow. I accelerate and he comes from the left lane, passes with complete EASE and gets in front of me taking that turn at probably 60mph, or atleast 20-30mph faster than my rex could ever dream of taking it.. It looked like his car hugged the road and it was freaking race car!
anyways, just a hell of a lot of fun and great a car I admire so much in action. I have ridden in them a couple times, even a modded one, but you can just never get enough
Heres a pic of the beast:
traps nearly 20mph higher than my car
