Re: Techart's 612bhp 911 Turbo

Kind of makes the Veyron look over engineered doesn't it?, or indeed over kill, who, where and why would you want to go that fast on public roads? the Porsche at least is an everyday (well,almost!) and it's not a silly price relatively speaking and dare i say it's all the performance you'll ever need unless you find yourself sharing a piece of road with a Veyron and there's not much chance of that is there?.
