just to finish off this thread....

Along the same lines as I was speaking...From Pistonheads interview with Porsche's Achleitner:

"Neutral Achleitner may be, but when asked about the Turbo's rivals from outside of Porsche he can't help but blow its trumpet. "The Turbo has no enemy on the road, it is faster than everything. The acceleration comes so easy. Just by the torque it is easy to drive and so fast."

And compared to the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 12C? "These supercars are very good, but the Turbo is easier to drive fast. We did some comparison tests with some competitors and everyone has been really surprised how easy it is to drive fast.""

Thanks, Artstu, I couldn't read the name well, and the comment wasn't very clear to me.
