I recently visited Lahore but this time it was really special. I got the opportunity to drive a Porsche 911 Targa. Me and my cousin, he parked his car in the owner’s porch and walked and sat straight in the 911 without wasting any time. Maghrib was approaching and we wanted to take it out in daylight time for obvious reasons. I opened up the door (which had a heavier feeling then regular cars) and it had lush tan leather interior(it was so neat I was afraid to touch it ). The seat was really low nearer to the ground. Sitting down for the first time was awkward in passenger seat. Visibility was also different as I was sitting low. Anyways suspension was hard as expected. Due to Lahore traffic could only floor the car in small patches. But when he did, got pushed against the seat and I got to hold back my breath for a second or two and along with that the engine sound was mind blowing. It had a glass roof which he did slide back.
Now he parked on main boulevard and I got to drive it. I adjusted the electric controlled seat, I am shorter than most guys. I could only see the right hump of headlight. Adjusted myself with the accelerator and brake response. Again traffic was around could only floor it for a few seconds (which was enough to keep you stuck with the seat and hold back your breath with the amazing sound to add in the thrill)
On the way back I found some empty patch from red light till Pace plaza and I floored it. Forgot to mention it was auto. Launched it soft, from signal, and upon flooring, it geared down, kept us stuck back on the seats, roared to 160 in no time. That was some adrenaline rush slowed down due to traffic and people crossing roads and cruised back to owners crib.
It was the best 0-160 of my life which I wanted to share with you guys which kept me in the “high” state for more than a day
I could only take this picture as it was getting dark or maybe i was not in my senses due to excitement
