I was just driving to a friends house, saw a newish GT2 merge on the freeway, he was on my *** as soon as he saw me. he hit it a few times from 50mph roll and I stayed close to him till about 90mph then we walked me bad and kept on going way into the triple digit speeds. I had my t-tops off and and I had enough. I was expecting to get walked asap, however it took a while for him to build up speed. Im bone stock and had my pedal to the floor the whole time.
anyhow that was a sweet *** Porsche wish I had $120k to blow on a car.

+1 i raced one too and we were head to head to about 100. Than we stopped because there was traffic
So how highly-modified are you?

If it's the new body style(997), it was the GT3, maybe GT3 RS if had a over-the-top wing, both 420hp.
If it was the 996 GT2(give away is the side scoops, and flat decked rear spoiler with downward canards), respectable death... they haul seriiiious serious ***. a solid mid 11 second car in capable hands stock.

I was heading up hill ~70mph when a GT2 and I went for it. This was a couple of years ago and I was in my H/C LS1. I pulled on him for about half a car, then he just walked me up until 140mph, when we shut down.
We happen to be getting off at the same exit and he asked, "Is that thing stock?"
I replied, "Not really."
He gave me a thumbs up, I did back and he blazed off, roaring that bitch up to at least 7000rpm.
Excellent car. If I had the money and was into Porsches, I'd be looking at one.
Great death, there... if you're gonna lose, let it be something worthy.
