If it wouldn't be too much trouble...............

...anyone have a spare $440,000?

Four Wheels, $440,000

Porsche's new Carrera GT has a big 605-horsepower engine and a $440,000 price tag, but Jay Leno says he bought one because of something small.

"What really makes it special is that little 6-inch clutch," says the "Tonight Show" host, who is expecting delivery of his new Porsche in the next couple of weeks. "It's one of the few things that moves technology forward. Most supercars are only about bigger-faster-more."


Yes, Porsche has offically made my dream Carrera. 605 Horsepower, 0-60 in 3.6, no mention of the top speed, but as the article states-"Buyers should beware, though. The GT seems designed to make its drivers feel inadequate. We stretched our courage to reach about 150 mph on the track, or a mere three-quarters of the car's top speed. We never got out of fourth gear."

Fucking droooooooooooooooooooool.............certain friends of mine should not get this car if they wish to retain their ability to drive legally, so you've been warned. Me, I shouldn't get this car if I plan on living past 40...

Update: A certain car-enthusiast friend of mine says that she would prefer the following over the Porsche listed above.....You decide....
