Lo peeps. Just got bak from a friends casa and gotta drive his wife's '04 Porsche Turbo... wow is all i can say. The pickup is ridiculous and the handling is superb. Gotta really unwind that sucker a couple and times and man makes me even more excited to get my Carrera 997.

I would never buy my wife a turbo. let alone a porsche, Id just buy her a little 330iC, and force her to drive stick shift, and if she was cool enough, Id get her an M car, and if she was real real cool Id get her a porsche. heh.

thats a sick car though. do the porsche turbo convertibles have a significant performance difference like the M3 coupe and conv?
