    Too much literature, too little auto.
    As usual, from him

    If one of us were required to write for a family newspaper ( not a car enthusiast rag ) , how would we fill up a whole page once we've regurgitated the manufacturers specs , posted test numbers , threw in a couple of popular web site critiques and commented on how it felt driving two laps around a track and once down and back on a canyon road - i.e, the first three paragraphs ? And how would we vary our "story" week after week to keep the general reader and the car enthususiast equally interested ?
    There's a reason these guys have to " contemplate their navel" so much !

    Re: Pulitzer Prize winning auto writer Dan Neil reviews 430

    I'd just guess that the 0-200 kph time has a little mistake in it...

    Re: Pulitzer Prize winning auto writer Dan Neil reviews 430

    anybody has 0 to 124mph of 997s ,996tt,996tt x50,gt2,gt3 ????

    Re: Pulitzer Prize winning auto writer Dan Neil reviews 430

    I think the 0-124 is wrong. It may be 13.7s not 17.3s.
    And I know 911 turbo accelerates from a standing start to 124mph in 14.4s and it`s 13.6s for 911turbo s.

    13.7 sec should be the right number.

    Re: Pulitzer Prize winning auto writer Dan Neil reviews 430

    That was a good read. I felt like I was in the car driving while reading his report. I also agree with him about the front end... the oval surrounds that are around the intake should be painted body color IMHO.
