    CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    In the july issue, might be worth picking up, especially if the headline is anything to go by :
    CAR july issue

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    Okay, who's gonna scan it, when the issue's out?

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    I was just about to ask that! Please please scan in if they test the LP640. I want to see what it can do!

    Best would be to scan the whole mag.

    You can afford to buy the car, but not the magazine they test it in. What's up with that Mike

    I'm a subscriber and I have a scanner, but what's in it for me

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    The problem is CAR magazine is notorious for its pro-Porsche leanings. If I am not mistaken, they acknowledged it in one of their issues. I have learned not to read any Porsche articles because I save time knowing exactly what they have to say (read it is the greatest thing since sliced bread..that is until the next Porsche model comes along).

    When it comes to Porsche, it is just biased reporting.

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    Yeah everyone is Porsche biased, thats it. Every car magazine in the world must be in Porsche's pocket. That makes more sense than the fact that they make such amazing cars. There is a reason that the company is so succesful and able to sell so many cars.It couldn't be that the company with the winningest racing career in history just so happens to make the best sports cars in the world. No that doesn't make sense. Ferrari must be better because Nick bought one. Thats it. Jeese Nick you really are in denial. What happened to make you so anti-porsche? Did your preciouse little toy get smoked silly by a 993 turbo. Must be hard when a brand new $200,000+ Ferrari gets its @ss handed to it by a car costing roughly half that made in 1996 Just get over the fact that your a poser and that if you really wanted to drive, you'd buy a PORSCHE, there is no substitute!
    Not all Ferrari drivers are posers, just the ones who drive spiders and hate on Porsches.

    It is about time that Nick launches his own car magazine: The first one not biased towards Porsche

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    There are many Porsche owners that would love to buy a Ferrari. There are few if any Ferrari owners that would love to buy a Porsche. I wonder why?

    Your young and singing the line of the uninformed. Keep reading this forum and I am sure, albeit slowly, you will learn.

    I can't buy it because we don't get those magazines here

    Plus I have bought one, my LP640 arrives only in January

    I really don't think so.

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    Hi first post here was reading this and wanted to say that really I don't care which is better they are both excellent, I happen to prefer Ferrari's because of the styling amd the more bespoke nature (I showed a friend of mine a piccie of the 911TT and the GT3 and asked if they could tell the difference and they said one is blue the other is white!!!)
    But I can see where nberry's coming from i.e. anyone care to guess "Evos's" car of the year, GT3 or TT?

    I don't know where you get your info from but I'd love to see you prove that claim. Calling me young and uninformed is easy, but from the posts that I have made what gives you this idea. I am betting that I know more about cars than you do, but how will we prove it? Because my opinion differs from yours you say I'm uninformed. Thats pathetic, arrogant, and ignorant. Just like saying all porsche owners want Ferraris. Well many Porsche owners on this board including my father could have ANY car they wanted yet they are choosing the Turbo. Are they all misinformed? There are also many ferrari owners who have switched to turbo's or own both, so you clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Maybe I should call you OLD and misinformed yeah that works.

    Not true, I have met many Ferrari owners and even have a few friends that have gone from Ferrari's to Porsche's or while driving Ferrari's respected and loved Porsches as well. I love Ferraris but I assure you it is not made any better than a Porsche

    Prob the most popular car among those worth >>$100MM in NYC/SF/LA/London is neither P/F; it's the drab, anonymous, taxi-like 55/65.....

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    Nick is no poser. He bought a car that he genuinly enjoys driving.

    The title page "Genious. Sheer bloody genious" seems to indicate that CAR more than just like the 599...

    I'm gonna predict that they hail it as the best car on sale today, if not one of the greatest cars ever made...

    No need to fret

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)

    Best car with goofyiest steering available.

    Ferrari apparently lost the 2006 Tiller Contest.

    Oh well let the fanboys at CAR eat their own about it.

    I know you like to say things like this and sit back and laugh when the Porsche guys wind each other up over your posts, but I have been a CAR subscriber for a few years now and can't say that I have found a special Porsche bias in the magazine.

    The F430 got a better review in CAR than any Porsche in recent years. Yes they did crown the Carrera S their performance car of the year in 2004, but that might be because it wasn't up against a Ferrari

    If anything they are rather Ferrari biased as well. I have several "All hail the Enzo" copies of CAR in my collection.
    And like assman says, I won't be surprised if they hail the 599 as one of the greatest cars of all time.

    But the july issue will be intresting since they test the top Porsche, Ferrari and Lambo model in the same issue.
    So let's wait and see which car gets the most praise...

    You don't get CAR in SA? Strange...

    That's the nice thing about getting a Lambo, no 3 year waiting list

    I'll see what I can do about scanning it if you promise to post a video of the LP640 when you get it

    You know me, a video is a sure thing

    We do have car magazine here, but it is local. I don't think it will be the same as the European version.

    Re: CAR magazine to drive 599 GTB (and 997 Turbo and LP 640)




    You can get a CAR mag over here Mike.... Same for Evo, TopGear, Road And Track, etc....
    Just check your local CNA / Exclusive Books...
    It does take some time for the newer issues to come out though...

    You should check out the July issue of Motor Trend. Sounds like the big Murcie is a real beast.
