A coworker saw a picture of the Elise and made a comment that it looked nice but if I wanted to drive real car to buy a Porsche. I told him it weighted 1900 lbs and was one of the best handling cars in the world. He laughed he said he was familiar with the car and said its great car if your looking to race a Boxster but not a real Porsche. He said he is willing to put his money in his mouth, that I wouldn’t keep up past 3rd gear. I am not familiar with 911 but with his engine in the rear I could see he might be fast on the straightway. However, how could he possibly keep up on the turns at least a Boxster is mid engine and has excellent handling. Is this guy talking up a storm or should I take him up on his offer??
