Why would they not be able to drive them? Plenty of people out there with the skills and assets to enjoy each of them....

2.2 liter 500hp., single turbo, rear engine, high center of gravity car.
First I am not a race car driver or tester, But early turbo cars were not easy drivers, One had to know in advance when you might want the power and start feeding it in before you need it in anticipation of when you need it to not spin out. I guess right foot breaking would work. I imagine skills not the average week end hot shoe has. IMHO

I believe PRAY is the word I would use vs your choice of driver had to KNOW in advance when you want the power to feed

new track car, complete with silly wing, squeaky brake pads, and scaffolding in the back seat.



It's a 1999 996 C2 for anyone who's wondering.

it has 65k miles right now, so theoretically any problems should have shown up by now; but I'm going to do the RMS/IMS/AOS, new clutch, fluids, maybe flywheel just to be safe given what I'm going to do with it (and what's already been done to it!)
