Carrera GT's are fast..... damm fast..... i came up to a light on foothill expressway in Los Altos and right away this "thing" comes up next to me, at first just saw the front end and they look close to a normal carrera..... dosnt at all sound like one. we came off the light easy then on the 1-2 shift i guned it, he was about 4-5 lengths behind, then GONE!!! WHOLY SHIT, just like in no time was about 8 lengths ahead and pulling. OMG is all i have to say. Now i need one of the local Ford GT owners to school me, i think they look way hotter.

I raced a $90,000 911 Carrera 4S, I suprised the heck out of him. :) That was a good day. Just stay away from the Turboed ones, they will, ruin your day.

Yep. I ran one awhile ago and chalked one up for the Goat. That was when I was 100% stock too...

im figuring the number b4 the MPH is the 0-60 time. The 0-60 time may be the same but overall the S is much faster then the 4S, the AWD just gives it a better launch so it makes up for it there, try going againced them from a roll (30-40ish) and a bone stock GTO (just with K&N drop in) will take it, trust me i learned from experience.

Off the line, Most Porsche's (911) make me take notice. They are much better at grabbing the Assphalt then our Goats are... But on the freeway at speed or from a roll, I'll take a shot at runnin with most any of them. Ussually the owners of these cars have no idea what GTO is. Much less what a GTO can do. And if I loose, It's a respectable death. But I had 2 guys in a Boxter S look over and laugh (Oh HELL NO!) They will never Laugh at another GTO again, this I can promiss you :fawkdance (this was my second kill ever btw)

No disrespect to Porsche (911), If I had the money, I'd own one. Hell yes! And I wouldn't know what a GTO is either :pimp:

The 4S did take me off the line, but I had enough HP to make it up, by the middle of 2ed we were dead even, by 3ed I had a fender on him. same thing happens with the EVO's and WRX's. Just imagin if the GTO's were AWD.

Yea I love to blow off the big dollar Euro's. After I beat the 4S, I was going to give the guy a thumbs up, but he wouden't even look my way. BTW he had paper plates on to. I love it.
