Where do you guys find these Porsche drivers lol. Every time I try to instigate w/ a Porsche it's an old white man that won't go over 75mph..

And I end up being that guy that blasts past them lol. Ticks me off when people have 500hp cars and drive them like camrys..

Call me a douche but part of what makes owning these fast cars fun is the hooliganism that goes along with it. Revving the engine, flooring it when entering the freeway, carving backroads, playful racing, and overall trolling around town. As long as you're being safe and not pulling crazy stunts like tailing, swerving through traffic, engaging in road rage, speeding in residential areas or high foot traffic areas, etc. it's all fun and games.

And yes I'm the type who would only get a sports car in bright red, yellow, or blue. That's part of the fun of it.

But it wasn't a P-car..... it was the same car as mine! Black F10 M5 "murdered-out" with exhaust. I was thinking: dude, we have the same car, why you wanna race?

Wonder if it was any of you guys here
Whenever I've driven an M car I've noticed that everybody wants to race, especially other M drivers.

Yes, it's extremely difficult to change P-Car to Boxster.

Maybe that's a benefit of driving a white M - nobody thinks it's an M so I tend not to get the douchery too often. Well, other than Porsche drivers

I'm not sure how you can do that over AY and I used to own an AY M4. Trust me, it elicits many opinions good and bad on a regular basis. It was one of the reasons I decided to trade the car in for my current boring primer colored car.

This is a pretty dumb reason not to own a car, especially a high end and really amazing driving machine such as a Porsche. Its like swearing off of sleeping with attractive women after seeing a Russian oil billionaire in a tee shirt out at a fancy dinner with one. . .

Sorry no disrespect, meant it as older than a young kid, has some money as can afford a P car, is mature and established at work and in community, less hooligan ish, some gray hair but likely still in shape and able to pull the ladies.

Car guys are forever young

I've seen Geo Metros in bright yellow. C'mon, man.

That's like seeing one sportbike rider doing a wheelie on a freeway and assuming all sportbike riders do that. And as a sportbike rider, I can tell you that's nowhere near the case.

Stereotype all you want if it keeps you hatin'. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy the hell out of whatever I'm driving or riding, no matter what the hell you think.

To be honest I've never been a Porsche fan at all. Whilst I can appreciate the engineering that's in them, they're just not high on my list of cars anyway. They seem to be something you either love or hate, and this one was just trying way too hard.

Such a lot of noise for very little pace - and what a fucking awful noise!

Can't imagine what went through his head, but I'm sure he was impressed as all hell...
OMG! Are you going to be alright?
