    thanks ron!

    Re: AMV8 driving video

    It makes a rather pleasing noise.

    Re: AMV8 driving video

    I will wait to test drive the AMV8 before making a final judgement, but it seems like the 911S will be more entertaining to drive. In comparison, the AMV8 seems a bit muted, especially in the sound department (nothing a sports exhaust cannot handle however). Therefore the only reasons to own the AMV8 will be looks, exclusivity, and "specialness". I hate to see terms such as GT attached to it.

    Then again, Porsche has the advantage of offering several different grades of the car (like -20mm w/ LSD setup), whereas the AMV8's setup is a compromise for all potential buyers.

    I guess you really have to pick what kind of car you want and for what usage. In short: this is perfect for my father!

    Except that we North Americans can't get anything but PASM (without LSD)

    If the test drives and looks in person are pleasing, I still might consider adding it to the stable-if they make a supercharged Volante version.
