    Re: 997 Public Anxiety Report: Negative Reactions

    That sounds terrible, like something from that Spielberg film "Duel". Why do people behave like this?

    Re: 997 Public Anxiety Report: Negative Reactions

    pretty scary indeed....Ram you, but then what's next???

    Re: 997 Public Anxiety Report: Negative Reactions

    What I can't stand is people purposely stopping just inches from my rear bumper (usually their either in an SUV or a semi truck). Must do it just to [beep] me off and usually they accomplish that. I'm not sure why but some folks are just plain jealous. My other pet peeve are small rice grinders with huge tailpipes (usually one single one) constantly trying to "prove" something. The larger size tailpipe is usually purchased to compensate for the smaller apperatus they are stuck with for life!

    Usually I get thumbs up... my favorite however was driving to dinner in the city, a police officer pulls up beside me and motions for me to roll my window down. He yells "That car is f*cken awesome, do whatever the hell you want!"



    yeah, If a Porsche, or Ferrari, or Lambo etc is about to pass me I roll my window down just to hear the engine. I'm thrilled to hear that sukker wind out.

    I don't understand why aholes in minivans and dumpy pickups can't just enjoy the show (instead of speeding up) when I pass them in the Porsche.

    Hard to comprehend because you know the pickup guy likes booming dragsters and monster trucks and the minivan husband/father has fantasies of being single and driving a sports car again.


    Re: In Chicago no one notices

    Great, I'm driving along today and some guy in a white van throws his used chewing gum onto my car. Luckily it came off easily. Jealous b*stard!

    Re: 997 Public Anxiety Report: Negative Reactions

    I have a biker friend who loves to ride in the same twisty roads up in the hills I like to drive with my Boxster. He tells me his biggest fear are guys in sports cars as they tend to drive "crazy." For example when going around tight corners drive in the middle of the narrow road at a high rate of speed.

    Re: 997 Public Anxiety Report: Negative Reactions

    I have now hung up the two wheels, since I thought I had been lucky enough long enough. I always rode my bike in the twisties as if there would be someone coming around corner in the middle. Practiced "Delayed Apex" turns everytime I was on my bike on public roads.

    Now, my biggest fear when the bikers are near, are that they will end up coming in my lane and clipping the Pcar. Bikes leave no room for error and it is just plain scary some of the people that are on bikes!

    Get a Cayman. Reportedly, the response has been overwhelmingly positive to the exotic sensual shape of the Cayman. They're new and rare enough to get lots of attention too.

    Especially if the Gayman is driven by an exotic, sensual guy in San Francisco. Lol

    Here's the type of photo Porsche doesn't want anybody to see (supposedly).

    It shows the Caveman next to the Carrera in the same photo:

    Thats the Carrera that left the gas station 5 minutes after the Cayman.
