2008 Porsche 9ff GT9

Porsche it is and it always will be a fast and furious car. Radical evolution of the Porsche 911 promises to knock the Bugatti Veyron from its perch.
Fatthauer has a long and great reputation tuning Porsche 911s up to 1,000 bhp, but this is the only purpose-built car and weighs a lot less at 1,385 kg, and 2.5s to 60mph is a legacy of the tyres’ grip, not the potential of the car, and the fact that a rear-wheel drive machine hits 186.41mph in 17.6 seconds, 0.6 seconds faster than the Bugatti Veyron, is a closer indication of its sledgehammer performance.

    Now compare it to the Tesla electric for gas mileage. The term “Porsche” is rapidly becoming synonymous with “dinosaur of the 20th century”.. Large, gasoline powered piston engines and metal bodies have given way to the 21st century carbon fiber / electrics. I miss large radial engined aircraft too, but have moved to jets for the same reason the current Porsche design must be updated

    I don’t think people that buy these kind of cars are interested in gas mileage.

    In this day and age, when everybody is aware that oil production is about to peak, energy will slowly become more and more expensive and ordinary people’s lives will slowly become more and more difficult as a result, I reckon people who choose to drive Porsches or Veyrons or Hummers or any such grossly overpowered vehicles without a damn good reason should be on the receiving end of some stiff taxation, or even better, spend some time in jail for wasting humanity’s limited resources.

    Right, at least the tuning crowd won’t be taxed, most of them don’t have no power. Unless you count hauling tons of stickers on a civic a waste of energy…

    …It’s called a gas guzzler tax, and it exists.

    This gets 8 mpg, so what to go 256 mph and have full control is to grasp a closer concept of life. Energy will always be here because humans will always be here (well atleast until a cosmic event wipes the planet out or we collide with anything remotely large). You should never look at such an awesome vehicle and complain in the threads you hand over your man card as you type the first word.

    We’ll see how manly you feel when you won’t have enough money to pay for heating in your home in the winter, and to feel up the tank to go to work every morning. I’m sure you and your family will be happy to know someone got to grasp a closer concept of life at your expense years before.

    By the way, if going 256mph is your idea of life, you need to get one.

    I’ve heard that they are going to produce 20 of those GT9’s. And I also read that it is the fastest road going car from 0-300 km/h. In about 16 sec. (Bugatti Veyron 19.5 seconds).
    There is a lot of potential in this car. I like the design which is very close to the Porsche design. I am just thinking about the Lamborghini Reventon. The first time I saw it I thought WOW … but I ve seen that car too often. Now I dont like the sharp edges of the Lambo, but the smooth flow of the Porsche line is a classic look … also in 20 years.

    I love this GT9!!!

    It’s got the combination of Porsche’s smooth lines along with the roughness of a car that’s built to race. I think it looks way better than anything coming out of Ferrari or Lambo’s factories.

    First, this isn’t a kind of car you drive to work every day. It is a fun car you take out on the weekends, or maybe once a month. Believe me, my dad owns and exotic rental car business. We had a Lamborghini, that is a car you drive rarely. But there are some alternatives, such as the Lotus Elise. You get a huge amount of power and fun in a fairly inexpensive car. I would actually say that the Lotus is more fun then the Lambo. Also with the Lotus you get great gas mileage as long as you keep it under 6000 RPMs, because that is when the VVT kicks in.
    Second, until you have felt the joy of driving such a power full car you don’t know fun. I can tell who here hasn’t drove and power full car.

    do you really think cars like this have the faintest effect on oil prices?

    If you must comment on the price of this and the price of that, if you don’t have enough money at the end of the month for your bills then clearly you should not be commenting on high end products that you may not be able to easily afford. Try something else. You are obviously out of your mind to think that these toys are anything but a nice distraction for the rich and famous.
