Re: '94 Q45 / '89 200q comparison...

yeah rick,

i'm not trying to pull your chain, but you should be working for the porsche pr

porsche has not "won" any f1 races.  they *did* supply an turbo engine to
mclaren in 1984 for the (famed) mp 4/4 chassis, which enabled mclaren to win 3
championships.  the engine was never called porsche, but tag (technics avant
garde) because they paid the bills.  when porsche built their own (n/a) engine
and put it the footwork chassis, the whole f1 paddock fell about laughing. 
porsche withdrew the engine at the end of the year, and haven't been seen
since.  and no (in case you're wondering) they didn't win with it.

and they did win a few rally's (in the early 1970's) with the 911, which tells
you something about the state of the competition...

more races than anyone else?  doubt it.  would be an interesting trivial
pursuit question.  you'd need to define what you meant by a 'race'  fia
