When did I say the Germans were going to arrest Obama

You 1000% are a high Coxster owner

Not only that, I can't find a verified CGT time that is faster than a verified GT2 RS time on the Nurburgring

MUST BE THAT INFERIOR DESIGN

Your precious CGT which has nothing in common with your car, crashing, on the ring.

You didn't - just like I didn't say my Boxster is superior to a GT3.

But oddly, that didn't stop you from repeating that lie 9 hundred times.

Why do you keep repeating a lie?

Why do you keep ignoring the fact that a mid-engine 918 Porsche Spyder laid waste to every 911 variant that's swung its ass around the Nurburgring?

Reality Lair

The GT2 RS has a faster ring time than the Carrera GT and the GT has a 80hp advantage and 30% higher RPM

Keep making yourself look dumb, please stay around - I have all week off.

Actually, I found a 911 GT2 spinning out during a vain attempt to keep up with a Carrera GT at the Nurburgring. CGT motored away. GT2 spun out.

How does it compare to the mid-engined 918 Spyder?

Also, find it interesting that my car, the GT2, is 1 second off the Carerra GT's time, even though the CGT (gasp) is mid-engined and has a 80+ hp advantage.

A driver error brought on by a tail-happy rear-engined car. You can't beat the laws of physics forever.

Then why do so many people spin-out in the Boxster mid corner

Oh wait, it's different when you... need a... different driving technique... for a Boxster...

I'll tell you how it compared. The mid-engine 918 Spyder was faster. Much faster.

With exception of mechanical failure when is it not driver error? No cars come with a spinout feature that I know of except the 911

We were talking about the GT2 that spun out when the driver tried to catch a mid-engine Carrera GT at the Nurburgring.

Let's talk about how the GT2 RS beat the Carrera GT Nurburgring time instead of a driving error

which

apparently

the CGT has as well

The lap time of the Porsche 918 Spyder prototype is one of the best ever recorded for a street-legal vehicle with standard tires. It is particularly impressive as it was achieved from a standing start.

He just drove off the track, he wasn't out of control

I'm not losing it, you lost it when you got divorced and started thinking your Boxster is a mini Carrera GT.
