Clarkson and 911s

I always thought he hated them, but come to find out he labled the 996 turbo as the second best car in the world.... ever... behind only the e type jag. He gets a bit of respect from me for this for sure.

Thanks
It wasn't my first choice at the time, but it has definitely grown on me.




Is it just me, or are the crickets loud in here today?

Weather is great here in the DFW and maybe finally everywhere. Everyone out driving?

I always thought Clarkston had a dislike to anything not British. He has made a very good point when it comes to Boxsters and Caymans. Why produce a car and intentionally do things to limit its performance. Wish Porshe would listen to him there. Put the best boxer engine in the Boxster as a option, and let the cards fall where they fall.

Well, it's nice here, but I'm stuck inside working on people's headlights

Then again, I'm self employed and only work on days I feel like it, so there will be plenty of opportunities

I think that Clarkson is an entertainer first and foremost. I do not highly value his opinion on cars but I love to watch him on tv!
