It was a nice day here in TX. I took my Z out after another coat of Zaino, I was doing about 70 mph (on highway 360 south) and notice a two rounded bright headlights with fog lights coming up fast behind me. So, I gave way for it to pass me and then got right next to it; it was a shinny black porche 911. I gave it a few signs, but he didn't want to play. I was thinking oh well, I guess he didn't want to look stupid in his 80K+ car after getting spanked by a Z. So I went on my way. Up ahead is a ramp to get on to another highway (highway I-20 west). It's long and has a nice curve to it. I looked in my rear view mirror and notice that he coming up fast on my rear. I thought he had gave up already, so I was still in 6th gear. I took the curve doing about 75-80 mph, normally doing 60 mph. The Z is holding the pavement like glue, I could of add about 10 more miles to the speedo and still be alright. I notice that the porche is gaining speed and right on my tail. Ah, this guy want to play now ha!
Now, we are 3/4 of the turn, I slam it into 3rd and gave the Z a little chirp and it violently completed the turn. Jammed it into 4th and looked down on the speedo, I was doing 125 mph. Looked in the rear view mirror, the porche was nowhere insight. I slowed down and waited for him to catch up. He didn't even dare to come up next to me again, even when I was only doing about 65 mph, he's still behind me.
I guess the only place he thought he could took me was on the turn...Don't think so....

I know that porche is known for their good handlings. How is the Z06 handlings compare to the 911s? I had never driven a 911, so I don't know.

thanks

Z..on....

I owned a 2000 Porsche Cab and the handling was nice but I don't think it compares to the Z. Maybe the Carrera 4 would be a good contender but then again the Z is pulling 1G....need I say anything more!

I don't think that a Porsche 911 Twin Turbo could give the Z06 a run for it's money, now,

the Porsche GT2 is a different story...1.02g's...3.6 0-60...11.9 1/4 mile.........now for the bad part...

$187,724,

I'd rather get three Z06's or maybe one Z06 and an Escalade. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif

I've owned a GTS Viper and 3 C-5's and a Z06 and plenty of non turbo and single turbo Porsches <including a modded to the max one>...the twin TT air cooled impresses me, dead stock. YMMV, but I am back to a Notzie daily driver and smiling /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif:D

how could you have so much fun running against a Porche. A" Porche" is close to the thing you will be sitting on in your rocking chair in a few years.You were driving against a " Porsche"

Excuse my spelling Dude. I should of asked my niece (district spelling bees champ. 3 yrs in a row). I knew I left out something in that word. That's what happenned when you become a senior design engineer. Pretty bad ha! hopefully I don't have to sit on a rocking chair in a few yrs. I think that would be many yrs from now. I'm only 30 yrs old now.

By the way if you need a rocker for your "porch" I am in the furniture business and could send one!

Damn, that would be perfect because I'm in the business of building "porch", maybe I can build you a nice one for your rocker right now. I know you're been rocking in the front yard, that's pretty sad. For me, 50 yrs from now I'll come and look for your kids to see if they can build me a rocker because you won't be around.........

Thanks in advance.........
