P cars are awesome. Hate all you want though.
Think that if you wish, but affording one is not the reason I don't want one. Not liking them is #1 reason, and then there are other reasons as well.

Hate all you want.

I think it was pretty safe to say it was because I was there. Unless that's how Porsche drivers drive normally?
But what lane were you in...

Yep. There's even been a rather lively thread on that recently here.

So, OP: Care to answer the question? Otherwise we'll assume you were being a left-lane hog and, well, the P-car you so vehemently hated on had some cause to do what he did (at least from my point of view).

Full disclosure, podnah ... 'cause as much as you apparently dislike Stuttgart's finest, the entire continent of Europe will pretty much move over for one in the left lane. Even in Italy ... ::ducking::

Left lane squatters are certainly worse than people actually getting on their Porsches. At least in my book.

After giving it some thoughts, I am speculating OP may have even tried to block the P car in question unsuccessfully from the left lane he was occupying. The P car just took off on him and merged into his lane.

Fun afternoon I am having.

Assume all you like - that's all everyone else is doing. I've already answered the question, but apparently you don't want to read the thread, you just want to stick the knife in.

He shoots.... he misses by a mile. Neither one of us changed lanes except me about 200 yards later when I put on my left indicator (yes - I know how to use it) and turned left from the left lane because that's what you do.

This is hilarious. A bunch of really angry people attacking me for "judging" someone's actions that I saw in real life, but all those angry people are running around trying to judge me based on their imagination and projections of what they think or hope I was doing so they can justify their judgement.

I bet the irony is lost on most of them too

Just break out with the answer already. I don't feel like scanning thru the last few pages. Until then, I'll just keep assuming.

And I'm assuming the guy in the sports car was trying to teach the lane clogger a lesson. Sadly those lessons never work.

All that took 6 posts and you didn't say, well, anything?

Best I can tell this is all you said:

Had one come up behind me in a different lane today.
So, were you, or were you not in the left lane?

Assume all you like, and be as wrong as you possibly can.

You're assuming I care what you think? Especially when I know your assumptions are wrong?

I WAS in the left lane because... I was about to turn left. I figure that's a reasonable reason to be in the left lane, considering you cannot turn left from the middle lane on this road (which was where the Porsche was the entire time...)

OK, great! That took just eight or nine posts to get to because ANGRY (and, I suspect, someone knows when he's been outed) ...

Next question: turn signal?

Oh, and you can call me angry all you want. I just generally don't mince words (That's usually called being direct). I also don't have patience for stereotypers, question dodgers, and hypocrites (Why the latter, you ask? Well, you sounded awfully ... well ...

... in the post that started this thread ... )

Keep hatin'. It's what makes the world go 'round, right? ::rolls eyes::
