Hurley Haywood and the Porsche 911 Turbo

The turbo is your traditional catholic, easier  to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

The GT3 is the right wing Catholic – ask for forgiveness instead of permission or just commit self-flagellation going around a curve.

There is nothing worse than trying to explain to St. Peter why you should be let through the pearly gates when you crashed a GT3.

Hurley Haywood, racing legend, talks about his racing experiences with Porsche, and also the Porsche 911 Turbo. The Turbo packs 480 horsepower and can do 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. All new aluminum doors, which only weigh 31 pounds less then the previous model, help contribute to the cars top speed of 193 miles per hour.

According to

“Hurley Haywood (born May 4, 1948 in Chicago) is an American race-car driver who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1977 (Porsche 936), 1983 (Porsche 956) and 1994 (Dauer-Porsche 962) and is the most winning driver at the 24 Hours of Daytona with 5 (1973, 1975, 1977, 1979, and 1991).

He also drove in the 1980 Indianapolis 500 finishing 18th. Haywood also represented IMSA four times in the International Race of Champions (1986, 1989, 1992, 1995).

In 1970, he was drafted into the Vietnam War where he served as Specialist 4th Class. By the time he returned from his tour of duty, he returned to his winning ways with his first IMSA GT title in 1971.”
