Driving my mom's Nissan Maxima 4th Gen this evening on the way home when I saw 2 suspicious SUV looking things ahead. At first I thought they were Audi Allroads but it was sitting way too high. So anyways, I finally caught up to them...Black paint, the darkest tint possible, no badges whatsover. So I decided to go in front of one of them when I saw the Porsche HIDs. Damn! My lucky day! Not 1 but 2 Cayennes (Georgia plates). Anyways, to make a long story short, I came up next to one of them and give them a thumbs up. The driver rolled down his windows and said "let's go!". I'm like sure why not. Each of us took a lane (I was in the middle) and slowed down to 65mph. We signalled on the count to 3 and gunned it. Man! I didn't have a chance at all. Went up as high and 100MPH and in no time I was ever closing in. I signalled and they slowed down. I gave them another thumbs up and we went our separate ways. That totally made my day! <p>Those things will give the X5 and ML55 a run for its money. 450HP V-8 for the Turbo!!! Then again the standard is 340HP on its own. Although the design is a little questionable to me, engine-wise, it's totally Porsche!<p>

wow...you really got smoked??? Could you tell if they had the turbo engine or was it the n/a engine?<p>I wonder what would have happened if you started racing from 0 mph. Is your car manual or automatic?<p>Yannis

How many people will be fooled by the pretty nice handling of the Cayenne and will start to really push the envelope...you know, the engines will be more than willing! This will be interesting...<p>Yannis

I'm sure that one of them was the turbo model because of the quad exhaust and the turbo headlights. The other one is most likely the standard carrera s model but it still hauled ass. My mom's car was an Auto. I would have loved to try the with the C70. 0-60 I would've been smoked even worse. According to MotorTrend, the turbo runs 0-60 in 5secs flat! The standard carrera s model is suppose to match the X5 4.6 time.

Porsche of North America is located in Georgia, so it was probably some corporate guys out screwing around. From what I understand, the thing will be highly capable. We'll see.

Re: Run-in with 2 Porsche Cayennes ([email protected])

Porsche? Porsche what? I had a stoplight run-in with some guy in a 911 convvertable a couple weeks ago. I think he was shocked at the outcome, to say the least <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I'll fear the 911 Turbo (until my nitrous kit arrives anyway), but with that price tag they're not too common. But an SUV? No offense, but beating a Maxima isn't saying much. So I repeat my statement... "Porsche WHAT?" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

I've seen Maximas go into the low 14s in the quarter. I know of 1 that does 12s. Overall it was a rush.

I've seen a new Maximas (the one with 255hp, 2002?) go 14.7 stock with a 6-speed. Pretty impressive for a 4-door its size, yes. But in the world of street racing it's pretty slow <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"><p>What did your buddy do to get his in the 12's? Nitrous?<BR><BR>
