What does Dan really know about 911s except anecdotes he has gleaned from other writers?

911's rear weight bias has many advantageous's for street use: traction, size, handling (weight transfer and polar momentum that the skilled can exploit)and interior space.

Mid engine race cars are perfect for the track but they seldom deal with snow, rain or climbing mountain passes. Its those conditions where you can appreciate the traction and rear weight bias of a 911.
