Hey all, ..been awhile since I posted but this race was fun. I came up to a 944 at a stoplight that had its numbers changed to "948" and had stickers for a local porsche speed shop called Black Forest Racing. I could hear the rumble of the engine through the exhaust and I knew it had to be a v8 under the hood. There is just no mistaking the sound of a chevy small block. Anyway he guns it at the light and I stay right on his tail right through the top of third..as I pull out to pass him, traffic comes up so we both slowed down, I pulled in front of him. He pulled up at the next light, rolled down his windows and said "what the hell is that thing!" I told him its a subaru wrx with a 2L four cylinder turbocharged engine. Him: "goddamn! I am embarrassed! I just put a modded IROC LT-1 engine in this car and its making about 340hp..this car runs mid 12's at 110 and I couldnt pull away from you one inch! ..guess I'm gonna have to go back to the shop and find some more power!" and he laughed when I said "hey nothing more money cant fix". Light turned green so I didnt have a chance to chat any further but that was a really satisfying run. V8 porsche 944's..what next!
..hehe, corrected my quick typing. I know porsche makes v8's but they sure as hell didnt make any 944's with 'em ;-) ...I had a 79 eurospec 5spd 928 myself!
