    Can I have a Bentley Continental GT for family outings though?

    No, because that would be six. Why d'you think I have the Masser?

    And why do you want the Lambo and the 911? Drop one of those for the bentley shirley.

    The Lambo is a supercar, the Porsche is classic styling and something that none of the others can do, which is hold the road in the rain.

    Surely the Lambo is the better car in the wet, it is 4wd after all.

    Right, list time.

    1) The Lambo is AWD and has better grip, thus would be more suited for wet driving.
    2) The Porsche is effectively as fast as the Lambo in real world conditions.
    3) The Porsche is notorious for it's on the limit handling due to the engine slung out over the rear wheels.
    4) You wanted a 911 Cabriolet.

    What are you on about?

    Ariel Atom - for the acceleration
    Audi R8 - 'cos it's awesome
    Lotus Carlton - for confusing people in obviously fast cars during races
    Metro 6R4 - due to it's silliness
    Batmobile (DKR style) - obvious

    Sorry what? You think the Lambo doesn't have traction control? This isn't a TVR, there is a computer helping you. The Porsche needs more intervention anyway as it is inherently less stable, due to the engine placement. See below.

    That's what I said. So why do you want both?

    Halo_3-Liverpool_0 wrote:

    Really? Fascinating.

    The engine and gearbox bring all the weight at the back of the car, which leads to heavy oversteer, exacerbated by the light front end and the additional traction from the weight over the rear wheels, which are driving the car. Electronic doodads can tame this but they don't change the basic fact of it. Your information is incorrect, and, in fact, missing.

    Bully for you. I assume it's a new one as it has AWD, so enjoy the depreciation on that bad boy. And the fact that you bought the wrong car.

    I love the way you trot all this stuff out having never driven any of these cars. Getting a Porsche Tubo to oversteer would take a racing driver or someone with a death wish.
