Another video from that wonderful experience I had yesterday.
My brother-in-law, God bless him, was able to get me an invitation to the annual ‘Porsche World RoadShow’, where a number of people get the opportunity to test drive a number of Porsche’s.
By test drive, I don’t just mean, take-it-around-the-block test drive, I mean, a real pedal-to-the-metal test drive. I always heard about 3.6 second 0-to-100 acceleration and 220+ kilometer-per-hours speeds, but this is the first time EVER that I actually experience this.
Among the cars we tested were: 3 Cayennes (a Turbo, an S and naturally aspirated one), 3 Carreras (a 4GS, a Cabriolet and a normal one) and a Boxster S.
I mean, we were on fire! Naturally we had police escort. I took pictures (and a coupla videos) of the speed-o-meters while driving (yes, I’m mad!) just to prove to myself that this wasn’t a dream; and to show everybody that I really did this!
I wish they’d invite me next year, and the year after that… and the one after that…
My favorite one was the Cayenne S.
Check out the video!
It is with great joy and happiness that I announce the birth of my new baby boy, Khaled Bashar Lulu. Weighing in at 2,960grams he is the smallest of my three children.
Wish you and your families a long and prosperous life.
Oh yeah… I’ve been promoted: Senior Information Systems Architect. Guess I take after Bill Gates after all. 🙂
I have to thank my manager for this, I guess.
