      Those are some properly respectable numbers for the RS

      I don't know about you, but with the performance so close with the RS and Rav4, I'd just pick a Rav4..

      Holy carp the GT2's weight distribution.

      And yeah, very impressive numbers for a now 40-year-old car! Still almost as quick as a standard Cayman.

      Porsche should've put boulders in the frunk to balance it out.

      They did throw some large radiators and oil coolers up there...that's enough

      BTW I see the 1990 Turbo had 38.7/61.3

      Isn't this car known as the Widow maker?
      Or is that the Carrera GT?
