    02 Trans Am vs. Porsche Carrera

    Ok, so this afternoon im leaving town on my way to church, windows down and t-tops out. Now I live in a pretty small town so I donít get to much action. As im going by my friendís house I see at the intersection a black Porsche. I could tell it wasnít the run of the mill boxter so I assumed it was a Carrera. It was. I wasnít sure if he would play around (car was black with black tint so I wouldnít the guy to begin with) so at the light I get into the turn lane to go into town and the Porsche gets in the other lane to go out of town. Light turns green and he turns and I sit there and think ďWhy not? I've got time to kill.Ē So I turn his direction and catch up with him. I get behind and just kind of chill for a bit to see what heís going to do, then I make my way up beside him and past him. At this point im about to turn around and leave but then he gets up beside me and I can see who he is. Some middle age black guys, dressed really nicely (turned out to be a pretty cool guy). We pace each other for about 10 seconds and then I hear him get on it and im like ďoh boy.Ē he jumps about a car on me and then I real him in real easy (I must say I thought he would be faster than that). We slowed down and did it again, same outcome. We are almost to the next city so I turn around through the medium and he follows me, haha do race again from a slower roll with the same outcome. At this point Iíve been seeing some black smoke coming from his tailpipes but he has been getting faster on each race. We race to my city again and do another turn around. This time at the turn around I ask him about his car and he says he hasnít driven it in a while and its got carbon build up in the cats. This time I follow him and he leads to a couple of country roads and we do some more runs. We decide to do a couple of dig runs and I get murdered (Iíve got new tires but they aren't sticky enough haha) first dig run we both spin like crazy off the third honk. We continue to run each other for the better part of 30 minutes. we stop again and talk and he tells me he donít think I can keep up any more since his cats have got cleaned out (he defiantly got a lot faster since we started) but we also have been starting out in dead spots in my tranny, so I tell him if we go at a lower speed I think I can hang with him. Heís like ok and tells me to lead. So we go for one last run and I slow it down to 35mph (sweet spot for me). I honk 3 times and hit it, he does as well but I instantly jump a car on him. We stayed even from there up to 120mph. We said our good buys and went our separate ways. It really was an epic battle, plus i burned 1/4 tank of gas haha.

    My car: sig
    Other car: 1999 Porsche Carrera, 6 speed (im guessing stock the guy didnt say anthing about it)
    A4 (2.73 gears), Magnaflow cat-back, Lid, filter, tb bypass, P&P TB

    Sounds like you had a lot more fun than most of us today. That's cool that you found someone to play with like that.

    Very nice. I've run a few but I've got a lot o' mods. Throw a few more on yours and you'll be taking them out left and right. Also good to hear it all went well - everyone was cool about it. IMO, those are usually the best kills - when everyone has respect for each other.
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    Sounds like fun man.

    Also, after all those races or runs, you only burned a 1/4 of a tank of gas?
    Geeze, it seems like I burn a 1/4 of a tank driving a mile up the road to the gas station. It gets old, quick.

    Man, good kill bro! I got to play with a 2003 Carrera a few months back! I thought he would have been alot faster until I found out that they only come with 320hp but then again they are 13.3 1/4 mile cars which is pretty fast for stock...

    Yea they have about slightly less power than stock F-body's stock but they weigh less and have a better suspension so it made a very close race.

    Nice kill(s). Is it plural since it was the same car? Like you said, it must've been a fun day, and even better that there were no po-po around to collect some $$$.

    it defiantly liked the upper RPMs, kinda like our cars. up top before he would shift the exhaust would sound like a whistle just real loud and high pitch

    Well yea, to make that much power out of a 6 cylinder requires rpms. Porsche sells a3.6liter 6 cylinder that makes 365hp a 3.8 6 cylinder that makes 385hp and one that makes 435hp and a 4.0 liter 6cylinder that makes 450hp all N/A. Now those engines can rev to 8000-9500rpms depending on the engine.
