I had a chance yesterday to drive a brand new 2002 Porsche 911 GT2. For those not familiar the GT2 is step above the turbo and is the closest thing to the non street legal track car GT3 that Porsche makes. The price is 229,302! Although I only got to drive for about 15 minutes I had the chance to put the car through its paces and got it up to 155 MPH :shock: (Holy $hit) before I decided to slow down. (local 4 lane, with divider parkway speed limit 45). The car tops out at 192MPH and has an insane 0-60 time of about 4 flat. The color is Zanzabar Red but looks like a burnt orange color. I was with our Porsche mechanic while he was doing his PDI (Pre-delivery inspection) of the car.

Lucky bastard! I got to drive a BMW M5 for about a half hour, and my friend's M3 last week... but that's the best I can say I've been in. I *sat* inside a Ferrari a while back, don't remember the model but hey.. it's a Ferrari!

Though I admit, if I had the cash I wouldn't get the Porsche. Nice fast car, but I don't dig AWD! I'd get the M5 and spend the rest of the money on some other useless crap :D

Well I will bump this old thread again. I don't believe it was the same Porsche (I had the sound muted) but I watched this show on the history channel about the Autobahn and this dude in a yellow porsche did 221 miles per hour (!!!!!!) No joke. It was crazy.... he had camera man in back seat and a passenger too !!!!

das crazy shyt.... i got up to 153 in the ml 55, 150 in the gs400, and 120 in a max (didnt have room to top it out) and 126 in the millenia (coulda gone faster)
very weird thing happened with a toppin out run on a 97 jeep grand cherokee... when we got up to about 120, it was weird... the speedo went back to zero, once he got off the gas, it went back up to the correct speed
