Porsche GT9 To Destroy Bugatti Veyron?

Pretty insane if you ask me. It's going to top the Veyron's top speed. I'd much rather have a the Porsche than Bugatti in pure performance, but the Bugatti does have an edge in the styling department, probably as well as cabin luxury.

Actually, it was me who preordered it. I said I'd buy it only if they can get it to break 400 kph. Porsche has spent a lot of money taking me up on my challenge.

But the joke's on them! I can't really afford it. Don't tell.
