I dont know what you have been looking at, i am not talking soley about 
acceleration.  I am talking about the whole performance package.  
Including, top speed, handling, slalom, acceleration, 
braking...everything objective...

Objectively, as a whole package, Porsche is number 1, it is provable...my 
friend even devised a method of rating the objective performance, even 
including the price...

It is quite good, and doesnt seem to have any holes in it..
