UrQ v. 944t, etc.
While I do love these Audi's, and I'm still waiting to get my
hands on a cheap UrQ, the debate about race stuff [ie., 1/8th mile; 1/4
mile; 0-60; 0-?] while fun, I believe misses the point.
When discussing the U.S. spec stock UrQ, it has features that few
"performance" cars can touch. But, drag-race type performance ain't one
of those features. A stock UrQ can't touch a properly driven 944t 0-30,
0-60, 0-100. Same is true when compared to the dorF 5.0 pony car, the
z-28's, or any of at least a dozen redneck cherished rides. But, I think
this is looking at all the wrong things. An UrQ destroys all of the
above whenever the weather gets funny [and in looks, IMHO]. When you
talk "performance" car 365 days a year, the Audi tq's are without peer.
So, if you are lucky enough to have a cherry UrQ under the ol'
car-port, love it for what it is: the best damned all-weather German
coupe most of us will ever be able to afford!
