Boss was using the van I take home today and as I wait for him to bring it back I get a text saying "long story, take one of the other vans" then I hear a horn outside and hes in a porche carrera 4s cabriolet! And says do you want a blast in it, was expecting a passenger ride but he passed me the keys.

I gave it afew 2nd gear blasts but was mainly being careful with it as it wasnt mine lol.

You get a real kick mid rev range right up to the top then the next gear kicks in automatically (even when switched to manual).

Beats the focus anyway lol.

Took me awhile to start it as its all keyless stuff so a case of finding the start button(which was on the gear lever), quite embarrasing it first lol.

Why whats up with the focus lol.

Drove a diesel corsa today, love small cars with diesel engines, they just seem faster than they are with the tirque of a diesel and very little weight.
