I can see why, the 911 Carrera looks like a 1997-2000, that's 300 horsepower VS 332.

Prior Car 79 Wide body, 964 > 930 3.3 mods , Twin 996 Cams, 42mm intakes Cc'd heads, TO4, 8 to 1 Comp / C4 intercooler / 1 bar boost.
Current
Stock 2009 370z, for a out of factory unmodified NA paddle shift Car I'd prefer my 30 year older Porsche that also was stock factory suspension & everything else bar the modified engine, because you can feel the car in your hands your body etc etc;
I love the 370 far as power but that's about it, it took 30+ years for Nissan to catch up with Porsche & it'l take another 30 to get it to corner & handle like a 930.
