    My car is faster than yours!!!

    I am so tired of seeing people post how my car is faster, lighter, better, etc. than yours. Most of us will never fully use 100% potential of our cars and our skills. It doesn't matter if you beat me by 10 car lenghts at a street light, at the end of the day the only thing that matters is why you bought your car in the first place. There will always be someone faster, more daring, talented than you. Comparing numbers and a street race is shallow and holds no value. It leaves out character, heritage,and intrinsic value.

    Re: My car is faster than yours!!!

    Sure, but why do we buy performance cars in the first place?

    You must ask yourself that question before you can delve into your comment, and for many people that answer is very different

    You are right. But my car is the fastest

    Re: My car is faster than yours!!!

    we all do some form of racing on the street or just careless driving but it is beyond me when half the people arguing don't own either car ... lol

    i.e. on the ferrarichat forum you have a owner switching from f430 to CGT and half the replies is about how the f430 can match the CGT in performance and is a better value. On the contrary 90% of the members over there don't own an F car yet they know exactly how each car performs and handles.

    Re: My car is faster than yours!!!

    It's so true. No matter how fast you are, someone will always be faster. The overall feel of the car (how it brakes, rides, corners) is much more important. Buying a car based solely on performance is probably not a good idea.

    On top of that, a lot of the arguments I hear from people are about sheer acceleration. This is only one part of a car's true performance.

    If you really want to go fast, take it off the street and get it to a track where you have a much less likely chance of hurting yourself or someone else.

    Re: My car is faster than yours!!!

    I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately, you posted on a forum where the justification to buy a Porsche is performance. Why else would someone buy one?

    Certainly not for looks or character
    Porsche is an introverts car and Ferrari is an extroverts car. I noticed that a lot of Porsche lovers find it very important to justify why they love the car so much. Just be like Ferrari owners and enjoy the cars. That's what they are for. I find all the Porsche vs Ferrari forums very amusing

    Re: My car is faster than yours!!!

    I ride sportsbike and every 2 year there is a faster bike coming out. Yeah my R1 will smoke a Ducati down the freeway but out of nowhere comes a NSR250 when we hit the twisties and all that hp is worthless. We get 180 bhp motorcycles now and not to long ago those numbers were reserve for Moto GP bikes. Now the Yamaha R6 has a redline ceiling of 17500 RPM. Sooner or later all the posers end up in the ditch. Refer to the 2006 Z06 as you'll start seeing them at the junk yard.

    Are you saying only extroverts have looks or character? I take objection to that!

    Porsches look very classy - smooth, aerodynamic and purposeful. They don't stand out, yet at the same time attract the eye of onlookers.

    Not many girls like to walk around in a thong bikini at the beach, but does that make them ugly?

    Porsches look amazing to me. Some people talk about how the design has remained basically unchanged for over 40 years and how Porsche designers must have the easiest job in the world, but just look at the 997. It looks very modern, but it's instantly recognizable as a 911.
    Drive a Porsche on a twisty back-road, and its character will instantly shine through.

    I've heard a lot of Ferrari owners justifying their purchases too, but the reason always seems to be the same three words, "It's a Ferrari!" What more needs to be said?

    I completely agree that we should all be out enjoying beautiful cars and that Porsche vs. Ferrari threads are amusing, as long as everyone stays respectful.

    you are right.
    except the fact that a ferrari looks gorgeous ,is very fast ,handles great etc..its a supercar after all .but there is a kind of magic with the whole experience ,before i owned one i was asking myself the same question,i couldnt understand what is this "its a ferrari" thing. right now after i owned many f cars ,there is no other way to describe it better , its a total incredible experience..
