In 1996 he had a new Porsche that he sold when he began cancer treatment, but I do not know the model.

I remember seeing a picture awhile back and it sticks in my head that it was a Turbo.

The expensive one. My pal Don has the 2008 Porsche 911 Carrera convertible if that helps. But he can't ride like Lance. Faster than me, but everybody's faster than me.

Except you don't want to be driving that one around in stop&go city traffic. The clutch is all-on or all-off, you pretty much either stall it when trying to take off or you end up lighting up the tyres.

Agreed, but the latter ones (of the 400 built) have a smoother clutch. Still pretty much on/off like you say though, but a touch softer.

lol seen the CEO of our company do that a few times dont know if he got a different one by now but he complained to us about how the car doesnt drive right i took a lap around the traileryard and didnt notice anything. the funniest **** ive heard him do was cross tread the knockoffs cause he was afraid the wheels would fly off after i told him it doesnt take much to tighten them
