    Worlds Fastest Convertible

    9ff

    Re: Worlds Fastest Convertible

    Impressive but surely the whole point of a convertible is for top down cruising, being open to the sun/sky and just generally feeling the wind in your hair.

    IMHO it's an absurd concept very well executed.

    Re: Worlds Fastest Convertible

    237mph ? Wow !

    You are definately right but it appears to be quite impressive to get the heaviest Porsche model (save the Cayenne ) up to that speed. The forces on the tires are much higher than on a stripped-out, aerodynamically improved GT3 or the like. 9ff tried the later before, stumbling over a couple of flaws that made it difficult to accomplish the task.

    380 kph at Nardo is quite a number, no matter which car being used!

    100% agreed. It's quite an achievement. Like I said:

    LOL. That's about right.

    Same can be said about current looks of Angelina Jolie and Pam Anderson.

    At that speed, any hair I have would be blown off!

    Re: Worlds Fastest Convertible

    Well, we have to give them credit for that, the guys just shows up, takes a three lap ride and then take a cafee after beating the world record
    And car is not pimped, no big rear wings, busy air entrance or cheap looking front spoilers, just get the standard Carrera wheels, and this beast will look like stock, actually this is the part I like most, having a 780Hp beast that looks like a tiny 320hp stock car
