I am not a huge fan of 911s but I do respect them. They look very similar because it is the only car that has actually evolved instead of just kept the name, and being a car designer myself, I do appreciate what designers do with it. However, even though its layout has some particular advantages it has some drawbacks too, and if the fastests cars in history are mostly MR is for a reason.
I don't think Tristan is a petrolhead, he just loves motorsport, but not cars themselves.
Quote from BlueFlame :It's design WORKS. You can't ignore the facts. A 911 is THE best car in the braking zone when comparing to other GT cars and has extremely good traction out of slower speed corners.

How about giving us a source for these "facts" rather than just relying on CAPITAL LETTERS
He's an expert in all things existing, didn't ya know?

I'm an expert on 911's.
than tell me how do i start the car when the battery cable is off and the bonnet is shut closed?

I hope that's not your own start of story.

Depends where you stand on the grid...
Quote from BlueFlame :As we say in English - If it ain't broke. Don't fix it. - 911 is this philosophy in a physical form.

LOL.

Porsche has been fixing a broken layout since the beginning. They have done quite an amazing job at it but it's still broken.

Better start being an expert on the Cayman cause that's what is slowly showing every 911 blind fanboys how inferior the RR layout actually is.

Anyway what am I doing wasting my time...people here put BlueFlame's nose is his own poop twice a day and the dude keeps shitting everywhere.

How stupid and out of your mind you must be to write that shit?

All the stuff you bolded in his reply was absolutely spot on. Tristan was absolutely correct.

He also voted for Radical, which immediately make him the furthest thing from an idiot

The irony of someone who can hardly string a coherent sentence together calling someone else an idiot isn't lost on me either...

Pretty much this.

I did vote Ruf though, because as some here may recall I do like Porsche's.

I don't claim they're amazing for engineering reasons related to physics, but I recon they're just plain fun.

The braking thing is quite true; since 50/50 weight distribution (or close to it) is often achieved under braking. I also do like the exit style, and they can be competitive despite their inherent flaws

Every car has 'flaws' but no single model of car is as successful as the 911. FACT

If you're going to spout nonsense at least try to qualify what you're saying. How, exactly, is the 911 the most successful car in history?

Sorry, I didn't specify - in motorsport.
Quote from BlueFlame :Sorry, I didn't specify - in motorsport.

Thanks, that's much better.

Seriously though...how exactly is it the most successful car? Is that if you include all iterations and you count all race wins equally? Wow, 911s have won every single race in the Porsche Supercup!
Every race a 911 is in that it DOESN'T win it challenges for class victory and has done ever since it was put onto a race track.

Forget single make series as clearly I'm not referring to that....

...and that makes it the most successful car in motorsport how exactly? Also, you haven't defined whether you're counting all 911s together for this purpose.

Quote from BlueFlame :Forget single make series as clearly I'm not referring to that....

Given how poorly you stated your assertion it was impossible to know exactly what you were referring to...

#1 of course counting all 911's.

#2 Yes you most certainly did know what I was talking about. You're just being pedantic like the majority of everyone else on LFS forum likes to be.

You want pedantry. Try joining IRC. Hyperbole is forbidden!
You people do realize the modern 911 is very different from the original flat Beetle, don't you?
I think if you haven't tried a Porsche or a Ruf on a track then you should be quiet.

If Kunos can nail (within reason) the feeling of a Porsche dancing on top of the track like they did with the Ferrari, then I fully support a Ruf.

But I voted Mazda, because I want my RX8 in the game. Plus 787b, IMSA GT cars (RX7, RX3), Grand Am RX8, the Legendary RX7 tuner cars, RX7 club racers, the original Cosmo... basically anything with a rotary would be sick.

Yes I have a problem. Let me Wankel in peace.
Quote from Keling :You people do realize the modern 911 is very different from the original flat Beetle, don't you?

Yes,it has become wider,longer,higher,more powerful and what's the saddest - more civilized. Well,just like the new beetle.

It must have been great driving a 458 on track. Where were you?
