    my friends dad has the 996 turbo x50, and i'm pretty sure it will destroy just about anything. I was in a 415whp bugeye, and that was just about as fast.

    Ive raced two in my car. One was the slightly older turbo 911 with 400hp and the other the newer with the 415hp I believe. The 400hp one I raced from a dig, and I had a car til about 80 90 then it got close. With the 415hp one we were both rolling it was much closer basically us pulling side by side. I was making about 330 340awhp with my old 1820 fmi setup on race gas. The jdm six spd was a big help tho keeping me in boost. Now with my new setup I plan to just outright smoke em..

    my cousin has a 911 ( non turbo 40th anniv. )
    when i was over at his place we went out on PCH just to have a little fun. In all honesty, i was able to keep up with him, and or pass him on most of the runs.. and you figure even though it is a regular carrera ( non-s ) it can still take off.

    my cousin isn't a bad driver either ( so dont say that was the cause) , he came from an e46 M3 which he beautifully modified.

    and after we traded cars to try again, he had the same results in my car.

    go figure huh? our little ~$20k cars can keep up with 'ze germans!

    O I Agree

    If it aint turbo.....your right it wont take much if anything to keep up/ pass him... They are gorgeous cars..but not best bang for your buck. If i had the money i'd buy one for sure.

    These cars are amazing. If there is anything that I don't like about them, i think it would be the driver.

    Buying a porsche is not that difficult. IMHO, in order to own one, everything around you should be equivalent to these cars. In other words, I can't get a Porshe 911 turbo and live in an apt paying rent. I hope I'm not offending anyone. This is just my opinion. This is a typical scene in Korea. Some of my friends live in a POS place and drive BMW's and other imports. I just think it's not right.

    a Porsche is worth every penny, turbo or otherwise

    even a base 911 > Stage 26 STi.

    I like the 911T's. The other 911's just don't do it for me but the turbo just looks right. I could see having it as a daily driver someday.

    Bah. They trap about 115 mph. It's simple: If you trap better, you won't lose. I do have to say that Subaru 6spd's have horrible gearing and you'd have trouble on the topend not because of power production but because they have you shifting into top gear at only 120 mph. My old 92 Stealth 5spd would do that at the top of third.

    My 95 Stealth equaled a 911 Turbo's runs although I was 4-5 mph slower we crossed the 1/4 within a couple of hundredths of a second. Not bad for a 4000lb car on stock turbos with only a downpipe, mbc, and fuel upgrades.

    Sure, they're nice cars but what isn't when you've spent over $100k? I don't consider them some special vehicle built of "unobtanium". Honestly, if it were my $100k, I'd choose a twin turbo v12 Mercedes coupe and have some style with my speed.

    there is something i think your missing here john m. they don't charge you a ridiculous amount of money for nothing. a 06 stage rex nor a 06 stage sti would never even come close to a 911 turbo. it far superior. sorry. it is a beast. 0-60 is nothing. track racing is where it's at. and a 911 turbo would never be caught by sti. unless it had a load of work done to it in which a modded 911 turbo would stil never be caught. 911s rule. you must be on crack.

    I know they're very good on the track. However, I don't do any roadracing so that wouldn't really do anything for me in a daily driver. In real-world driving, the kind that doesn't get you reckless driving convictions, the STi could do anything I'd ever want to attempt.

    They're two different cars, aimed at two different markets. I just don't start bowing when somebody says they have a Porsche. At least the 911 is a real car - don't get me started on that Boxter / Cayman crap.
