I have a different automotive definition for 'crashed'. That turbo has a garage door across the frunk, but is otherwise very much intact. Still embarrassing for the journo though.

...sorry I'll get out of Canada

Maybe Rick will loan you a GT3 RS for the a DDT track day. Rick & I swapped the Recaro out of his 944 Cup car for the seat I had got out of Scott Goodyears 944 from the prevoius year. Back around 1985 if I recall correctly. Still have the seat. Might find its way into the M3 someday.

I only wish!I would bet that they do not even have an RS in their fleet in Canada.Do you still fit in that seat after 25+ years?

It's a little snug so might not need the 6 point harness.

It looks like the son wants to verify which is faster ...

The opening of the garage door or the Porsche ... Porsche wins by a nose !

Not as embarrassing as poor grammar (for a professional). "But they had sucked it up and tried to make my son and I feel better." Yeah, they did not make I pay, they make I feel better
