Good lad!

Have to say I don't really get the turbo cabs. You don't need all that power for cruising the boulevards, and there must be cheaper and less painful ways to get your hair ripped out by the follicles than putting your foot down in a turbo cab.

It's a much better car than you think, i had a Boxster S for a while, and loved the roof down motoring, and handling, but it was just too lacking in the power department....

Enter my TT Cab, it answers the questions admirably....

Ooh about to take a big risk now & tell a moderator he's talking BS.... Embarassed

.....following that logic there is little point in most cabs on the road. The standard C2 is far too powerful & quick for the posing around brigade and how many people really cruise round at high speed with the top down. Come to that how many coupe drivers get to use a fraction of their performance, which rather renders them pointless also.

If you like a very quick car, buy a Turbo. If you also happen to like convertibles, why not get a Turbo cab, saves buying 2 cars. Personally I like convertibles. If I had to lose the Gt3 & Elan, to replace with a single car then it would be a Turbo cab.

Sorry Eff, please don't ban me Sad

Hey Rob, you know that most of the time I'm only talking bollox anyway so I'm quite happy to be told I'm talking BS! Very Happy
My experience of cabs involves getting out a) sun burned and b) follicly rearranged so they are not for me. Mind you, that might change if I can find Mrs TgoE the 1967 Mustang convertible she has been lusting over for a while Cool

I'll just go and put the moderator's handcuffs back in the dungeon for the time being Wink

If the GT3 & Elan go it would be a manual, if it's in addition to the GT3 & Elan then it's a Tip. It would also be a Turbo S Cab Tip, so even more pointless Very Happy
. In fact pointless thinking about it as I've no more garage space left for it. Rolling Eyes
