Can’t hate a guy who spends 500,000 and then says he’s going to drive the wheels off the car.

Yep. That's a great vid and a great car.

Though my favorite petrolicious vid is still this one.

What’s the consensus on the 911T? Has anyone seen or driven one yet?

Reviews are out for it. It is probably the one I would buy if buying new.

I wouldn’t buy a new 911 until we see how reliable the new turbo engines are.

Sure, they’ll be fine. But Porsche always has some design issue in their first gen power plants.

I assume this is all the more reason to take all the money out of my 401k find a bunch of well appointed used 991s and end of production 997 and sit on them for 10 yrs... to profit?

I can't read all of this stuff, but one thing does stand out. As much as I like 991's, the 7-speed wasn't as good as either the 6-speed boxes on the 981's or any previous 987/997.
