    Looks like some birds pooped on the cone at the drivers door, think of the mess it would have made to that paintwork..

    I have a boxter s and the bits aren’t expensive, but the labour to do anything costs a fortune given where the engine is. Obviously don’t go anywhere near the main dealers!

    The 996 is a bit easier, with small hands you can do lots, and the engine drops out like an old beetle.

    Most of the costs are the overpriced dealers and specialists, and most Porsche owners want their cars to be 100% minty mc mint so shell out for everything.

    The fastest car I’ve owned wasn’t that quick by the standards of many here, but it was quite quick enough for daily road use, sadly I don’t have a photo available but it was my 1.7 Puma Zetec, lovely little car around the twisty local A-and-B roads, and sounded great when you wrang it’s neck!
    Sadly not mine, but certainly the quickest car I’ve ever driven, and certainly the best sounding, was this:

    Maybe, if the lottery coughs up, I could afford to run one!
    One went past me today on the M5 – that engine sound! #swoon

    Wife’s car. 60 in 5.3 secs and limited to 155mph. After driving around in a 150bhp Tiguan diesel, her quattro, s tronic, light aluminium build car certainly wakes me up. Not sure any more performance is needed on uk roads

    Had a Porsche 944 S2, replaced it with a Panda 100hp.
    Entirely different cars, both immensely fun through the corners and surprised a lot of supposedly fast cars that have underestimated something old/small.

    Can I play?

    Have had a few fun cars but we reckon one of the most fun in the last couple of years was a winter hack, don’t care/worry about it Micra!

    my step Dad’s Porsche 911 GT2, fernsport tuned monster. tuned to north of 700hp…

    doesn’t go round corners very well and his Caterham CSR is quicker round a lap of Spa.

    My brother’s (former) ride… which he had to sell recently.

    It was a bit of a sleeper with this under the bonnet…

    I can’t recall what the power output was, but it was… substantial (eating M series BMWs without breaking sweat off the lights)

    Not blisteringly fast but 5.1s 0-60mph and sub 800kg so pretty fun to drive!

    For some reason I’m planning on doing 2500 miles in it this summer going to Le mans and then on to Italy and back.

    Perhaps we should make it 170 mph plus cars as most seem rather run of the mill πŸ˜‰

    What’s the engine in that MGB?

    bensales
    Member

    Agreed. Small hatches with over 7 second 0-60s aren’t really ‘fast cars’.

    I’d say a top end of over 150 and a 0-60 of under 6 makes something fast, as a regular road car anyway.

    plus we’ll get rid of all these german rep mobile’s that are limited to 155 πŸ˜†

    What’s the engine in that MGB?

    It’s the original 1.8 sleeved and rebored to 2.2L. High lift cam, over sized inlet valves. Heavily ported head. Lightened and balanced crank, flywheel and conrods. HS6 carbs rejetted with modified butterflies. Been on the rolling road at just over 160hp.

    The whole car is about 300kg lighter than original too.

    I have an new old stock janspeed twin turbo kit for the rover v8 I fancy building into a BGT. Should put out about 550hp if built right.

    The whole car is about 300kg lighter than original too.

    😯

    How? A 25% ish weight reduction from 1100kg to 800kg?

    How? A 25% weight reduction?

    More like 30% (off 1050kg which is the wet weight IIRC)?

    jonm81
    Member

    Yeah, down from about 1200kg to just over 900kg. Different front suspension and subframe. Different rear axle and suspension. Racing fuel cell. Smaller and lighter batteries. Light weight spoked wheels. Aluminium bonnet, wings and tailgate. It all adds up.

    From uni days back in 2002. Max speed wasn’t that fast, but 0-60 put most things on the road to shame. Motor out of a Yamaha r6 with a total car weight of 220kg ish and very low gearing, it was designed for acceleration.

    Pretty quick by most standards. Also I have the roof rack for the bikes πŸ™‚

    And if we’re going to add criteria about “fast” can we also restrict the meaning of “your” ? It shouldn’t mean “someone I met” or else we’ll all have very long lists.

    no kids, fast car. Library image because it for some reason I can’t post a cow shit covered picture of mine.

    Boot is covered in clay mud from dumping the bike in from a run round Ironbridge.

    Not fast compared to others but quick enough to get you in trouble-

    I sold it about 3 years ago, I’d have another but not practical for a family.
