    LOL......LOL......That has to be the best comment I hear yet.......LOL

    But there still room in my heart for Porsche's too.
     
  2. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Real world usefulness....you get caught using any of this usefulness on the road and you get a ticket. (Sorry I from California and know this very well)You pull alone side me in my BENZ with the top-down and we look a hole lot better then a 911, and I say we beause of my super-model firend sitting next to me. But if you still insist your better then we will settle this when the light turns green!!!

    I will say that I love a respect Porsche just like FORD and the-like. But all will bow-down the all powful Carrera GT. IF I ever pull alone side one.(NOT)

    Ok 911 Turbo may be a tad quicker but this car is pure SEX!! Best looking thing on the raod.
     
  4. Re: Porsche is still better.

    U CAN'T COMPARE THOSE CARS TOGETHER , AD EVEN IF U DO THE SL IS WAY BETTER FASTER AND THE 65 AMG (WHICH IS 700BHP) IS MUCH STRONGER THAN A 911 BUT I NEED TO TELL YEH PORCHEIS MY SECOND RATED FAVORITE CAR AFTER MERCEDES WHICH IS MY FAVORITE

    SL 55 ANG has a limiter ...
    For the more sporty SL 55 AMG customer Mercedes-AMG
    is offering a Performance Package. Various features
    in this package are derived from the familiar
    SL 55 AMG "Safety-Car" used in the 2001/2002 Formula 1 season.

    The Mercedes SL 55 AMG will soon have newer version SL 65 AMG 612bhp / 1000NM....

    I do still doubt MB will bring the SL65 to the road, or well, sell it publically. A car with faster straight line performance than the SLR (especially at higher speeds) which also has a better interior and a better modulating brake pedal for half the price. I know of one SL65 in the ENTIRE WORLD under private ownership somewhere in Germany, but:

    a) it wasn't cheap (cheaper than the SLR though)
    b) its the only one.
     
  7. Re: Porsche is still better.

    mecedes is no match for porsche supercars and tuned up porsches.

    sl55 AMG is no match for Carrera Gt, Gt1, or gemballas.
     
  8. Re: Porsche is still better.

    what on earth are you talking about ? "Real world usefulness" I will think ur find this car is a much more useful car than a porsche in terms of interior being littered with gadgets n high tech equipment.
    Better "Status" a porsche? HA u got to be joking every 50 cars i see one.
     
  9. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Yeah, no way man, porche is under Mercedes, mercedes is THE status symbol. Unless of course your talking Bentley, maybach (well thats basically a mercedes anyway)... but in a REASONABLE price that people can actually afford. Mercedes is king. If i were to choose ANY car, and i mean ANY, it would be a 98-2000 or somethin, unsure of the year range, but the SL500 or 600, convertable, now that's a classy car for a good price (because its not brand new) but i LOVE the slightly older boxy body styles they made, nice classy lines, the car's beautiful what can i say.
     
  10. Note a few things. The porsche is in no way less luxurious than a mercedes. I honestly can say that my dads 911 has a better ride than my moms a6, or any mercedes ive ridden in. And thats with stiffer springs on it. porsches ride amazingly well. Theyre just as functional as the mercedes too. they have backseats, unlike the merc. The turbo is also substantially faster, especally to 60, where a turbo has been clocked as low as 3.77. And for chick apeal, id say theyre on somewhat of a par. Whenever i even mention my dad has a porsche, girls often become very nice. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    heres another note: when you can find a place to hit 205 outside of nardo, tell me. you couldnt hit it anywhere else in the world. no highway is smooth enough for those speeds. one tiny bump, and your in the air with this thing.

    not a bashing on the AMG, as its an amazing saloon, but dotn start sippin on the haterade either.

    dont forget somehting called heritage too.
     
  11. This is better than any Porsche or BMW.
     
  12. like both, but i'd still rather this one
