Got back to South Florida for a couple days. Its nice to see fast exotic cars again. Anyways punched it in 3rd at about 65 with a approx 2003 Porsche 996 (911 Carrera) . I pulled about a half car on the Porsche up to about 100. This made me very thrilled to know I pulled on a Porsche in its sweet spot. Then about an hour later, Im in a somewhat highly monitored area (cops) and a brand new m5 pulls up next to me. All I have to say is damn, those things are fast as ****. I was at like 45 and punched it in 3rd.....(didnt want to downshift and make alot of noise) plus there wasnt much room, I kind of just attempted to egg him on to see how fast that bad boy is AND damn. It took off like a rocketship. Im kind of upset now that I look back, I wish I woulda downshifted into 2nd and really tried to see how much faster then m5 was. But it seemed noticeably faster just simply watching it floor it.

Sounds like a Maggie and a good tune would be more of a match for the M. Maybe not? Anyone know how they'd match?

At 45 mph, 2nd gear would have surprised that Bimmer. I have a long, straight copless stretch of 45mph road on the way home every night, and I'm all about the 2nd gear passes.

Maggie would be a very good match and so would the right head n cam job! The M5 traps at 115mph plus in stock trim! I have mentioned in numerous threads that this thing was a half a monster! The M6= 116+ mph! Fast and expensive!

It's a Porsche. Thought that's why you posted it.

It's a 996 Turbo with a bit of work done to it. Probably pushin 600 ponies or so.

That vid is a fake man....That M5 isnt even going when the porsche flys by. My dad has a 996 Turbo that I drive sometimes....Its quick, but nothing like that, thats just absurdly FAKE.

I KNOW I KNOW, MODIFICATIONS??? WTF??? But I swear on my life, that some crazy people do modify their cars, even porsches. The world is a crazy place. Whats next, powering cars with water?

From this and your other recent posts, are you being sarcastic? So are people really modding 996s?
