    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    I'm guessing that action movie driving school isn't too good for cars in real life.

    And did he say it in German?

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    I think he asked "Is it better now for starting in automatic mode?"

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    I think it went something like:

    "What sort of hair dye are you using lately ... your hair looks vonderful."

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    Arnold was jonesing for a pre launch Cayenne Hybrid. He already has pimped himself for a free GM Hydrogen Hummer, so Porsche was next on his list of "free stuff you can mooch" when you are govenor.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    HAHA... funny.

    regarding the free stuff.. is there anyone in Hollywood paying for those cars at all. I heard that even the Mclaren SLR have been given out for free to some of them.

    Lets not forget if it were not for Arnold, hummer would still only be producing cars for the army. Other brands such as AP have achieved cult status today due to Arnolds initial brand sponsorship.

    I personnaly give him credit. For he has been able to achieve incredible success from very humble beginnings.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    Arnold is somewhat of a paradox to me - his behaviour is in many ways aggressive and arrogant (not sure he is that way up close and personal), and at the same time there is noone I can think of that I admire more when it comes to being focussed, driven and insisting on making the most of what talent u have been given. He is truly unique and deserves all the credit he can get
    Btw my late dog was actually named Arnold (WeiBenegger)...hehehe ;o)

    PS: I like his comment about Ferrari build quality..hehe.

    Don't start, you may offend our friendly German speaking compatriots here

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    ...I like his comment :-) NO PR. No bullshit. In your face!

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    Got to admit, that was a good one from Termy.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    This is what he said officially though...

    Los Angeles Auto Show Highlighting the Lohner-Porsche and Cayenne Hybrid
    Arnold Schwarzenegger and Thomas Gottschalk visit Porsche


    Los Angeles. The Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his friend, German showmaster Thomas Gottschalk, visited the Porsche Show Hall dedicated this year fully to hybrid technology during their tour of the Los Angeles Auto Show. This "state visit" paid to Porsche by the Austrian-born Governor of California quickly became a meeting of good friends, Wolfgang Dürheimer, Executive Vice-President for Development of Porsche AG and Peter Schwarzenbauer, President of Porsche Cars of North America (PCNA), making Schwarzenegger, himself an avid car collector, acquainted with the Porsche cars at the show particularly beneficial to the environment: the Lohner-Porsche electric car built back in 1990, the current Cayenne Hybrid and the RS Spyder racing car which this year drove to victory in the American Le Mans Serie (ALMS) with ethanol additives in the tank.

    Schwarzenegger was very happy to note that Porsche had gone to great lengths and efforts to present the unique Lohner-Porsche even protected as a national monument for the first time outside of Europe. This zero-emission vehicle presented by the Stuttgart-based manufacturer of sports cars clearly demonstrates the unique position of company founder Professor Ferdinand Porsche as a visionary pioneer in the history of the automobile.

    The Lohner-Porsche was made available for the Los Angeles Show by Vienna Technical Museum. It is the forerunner of the first hybrid car Professor Ferdinand Porsche presented to the world public in 1901.

    Although Governor Schwarzenegger is acknowledged as the most important political driving force behind the low-emissions policy in the USA, he nevertheless remained faithful, as a famous action star in former times, to his Terminator image and enquired about all the features of the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet and the Porsche 911 GT2.

    Also only in the US you will hear a politician so publicy claiming he has owned a Ferrari.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    President of FNA: Where is your 360 now?

    Governator: -waves hand- oh, its terminated...

    LOL

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    How come he is looking at the spyder and not the NICE Scud!

    Yeah, I can only imagine what would happen in France if Sarkozy declared he had anything north of a Citroen C5 (or 6 or whatever)...
    More strikes!

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    Arnold is the ultimate achiever,I have always admired him from his bodybuilding days
    to where he is now. Everything he touches turns to gold.

    He knows what he wants and focuses on it, if he could he would try to be president.

    He is not a "girly man" like some of the others he refers to.

    What was said in Sylvester Stallone's "Demoltion Man":

    This is the Schwarzenegger Library, he was a famous Austrian actor who became President of the United States.
    They've changed the constitution especially for him.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    I would support such a 28th Amendment...


    ... because it'd work for me, too!

    Well considering Californias GDP ranking. Arnold is the presiding over one of the world's most important economies.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    Remember the guy is now a politician and answers to special interests. He just sued the EPA for emission standards. This will mean eventually everyone in the US will probably pay more for the privilege of driving. More tax revenue for the government in other words.

    Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Ferrari + video!!!

    So anyone know the status of this new zero emission Porsche? Arnie is wicked!

    Watch the top video on that page of all the cars going the down the freeway on-ramp. Best collection of moving super cars I have seen. Sounds are incredible.

    The best sounds are from an aftermarket exhaust on a cgt and some dark car that i could not identify.
