The 928 was an incredibly fast car; I remember an article in Road and Track where they had it at 186, stock from the showroom floor, and they said it was like driving to the store on the highway, perfecrly smooth.....Probably the longest sustained speed for me was in a Porsche 928S. 177 as I recall. Did the Silver State Classic Challenge. 92 miles flat out (for the most part).
I've been well over 165 in a few cars.
Now, the fastest car I've ever been in.... That is a good question. Could be a Ferrari F40 or a Porsche 935DP.
And for bikes.... My Kawasaki ZX14. Upwards of 160 and 145 with my wife on the back. That scoot was wildly fast!.
You must have been on one of the bigger tracks. Best I got was 112 on the track I was on. Admittedly, I probably could have done 120 in a Z06, but the lead car kept me from getting all the way on it.143 in a Corvette C7 on the track at Spring Mountain motor sports. Back straight away.
Yeah, it was Porsche's best kept secret IMHO. I sold a 930 and purchased a 79 Ferrari 308 GTS. Had it about a year and someone wanted it more than me and paid handsomely for the Ferrari. Then I bought the 928S. Damn it was a fine car. Did everything so well it was almost boring!The 928 was an incredibly fast car; I remember an article in Road and Track where they had it at 186, stock from the showroom floor, and they said it was like driving to the store on the highway, perfecrly smooth.....
I was a 911 guy back then , my Targa was fast as hell but the rear engine Porsches defintiely had a steep learning curve when you first started driving them....
I agree. Another thing I have come to appreciate is big brakes. Getting more and more common on cars. I had a 70 Mach One Mustang in high school, and rebuilt that 351 to HAUL! All that with 4 wheel drum brakes......That depends, what is the statute of limitations these days?
My SRT is capable of 182 mph, but my heart no longer is. I've always been way more into 0-60 times than top speeds anyway. A downshift followed by a pedal stomp makes heads bounce off headrests followed by ear to ear smiles. My passengers always leave satisfied and alive.
