urQ vs 944T

A recent thread compared the urQ to the 944T, and it was claimed that the
944T was much faster.  I feel obliged to defend the honor of the urQ (not
that I'm at all biased, of course).

What Car did a comparison test a few years ago, and it is reprinted in the
Brooklands "Audi Quattro Gold Portfolio" (pg 116).  The Audi tested faster
in acceleration from 0 to the lower speeds, with the Porshe edging it out
starting at about 0 to 60.  In the overall choice, What Car gave the nod to
the Quattro, which at that time (9/86) was an older model.

Any urQ fans should get this book.  Whenever your car is urQing you with
its repair bills, glance at a few articles in this book to remind yourself
what kind of machine you have.
