Some days it pays to work here
This is my boss' new toy. He tired of his Porsche so he sold it a month or so back and has been on the prowl for a new car. Luckily, I'm one of the few car guys in the office so he's been checking over his choices with me. I wasn't quite sold on this particular car, but he had to have it.
As I was on my way out to run a couple pieces of material to a jobsite this morning on the scoot, I asked him if he'd brought it in today as I hadn't seen it yet. The answer was, here are the keys and let me tell you how to run the paddle shifter. See, it does occasionally pay to work here. Wow, that car is fun. I'm almost glad I can't afford something like that as it will go from zero to arrest me in no time flat. I only squawked the tires a couple times as the traction control was on and I didn't take the time to play with the sport setting to check out the super fast shifting options. Definitely a fun toy, but man, you still can't take it out on a track day without putting in a roll bar which is the main reason I was trying to talk him into something different.
