It's too bad they let them keep their cars, 80+ in a 40 in a group would qualify as street racing in most jurisdictions, with confiscation of vehicle one of the usual available punishments.

Ok, so how the heck do you know to pull over if it's a single officer?  I've never been pulled over in a speeding-group so I have no idea what makes a pack of 10 cars pull over. I guess they were all doing it on purpose.

But if an officer tried that on the loop around St Louis he'd be lucky to get 2 cars to stop.  I've seen him slow one down. The others all ignore him.  He just has to pick one.

So how does he get 10 to stop?  Very curious.

It won't end well for them on a track either.

I take my 2016 Mustang GT performance pack out to the road course for Porsche and BMW club track days.

Nothing is better than passing a dentist who can't drive his brand new GT3 worth a damn on a track in my "lowly" Mustang.

Never driven in Colorado, but assuming it's anything like Washington/Oregon/California, I'm willing to bet that 40 mph speed limit has precisely nothing to do with the maximum safe speed of the road. You only see rural roads with limits that low if they've been legally designated as "scenic byways" or similar. So as long as there weren't blind corners they were taking at speed that might have a puttering RV on the other side it was likely no more dangerous than doing 80 on the interstate, which let's be honest, everyone does.

2020-09-25 10:16:36 PM  
Oddly, I've never been pulled over in my Porsche.  My old 1967 Mercedes?  All the time.  My turbocharged Mustang?  Constantly.  Never in my Porsche.  It doesn't really matter how fast I'm going.

Heck, there was one time in Baltimore when my brother and I took a wrong turn into some shady district, and there were two police cruisers blocking most of the road with their lights on .  I waited for a bit for them to get out of the way, but they didn't, so I carefully drove between them.  Afterwards my brother started laughing hysterically... I'm like what's going on, and he told me that was a DUI checkpoint.  And then I remembered, yeah the police were looking at me kind of funny, but they just... watched and did nothing, as I squeezed right through.

Porsches are like law-free cars, is what I'm saying.  The normal rules just don't seem to apply.  You can even drive through the rain with the top down without getting wet... you just go faster, and the rain goes around.

That is very much the case here in Colorado.  Lots of scenic byways and fun curvy mountain roads and nothing more fun than my Boxster for a morning run.  It's pretty easy to double the speed limit and still be safe.

Some people don't like bigger SUVs. You can trick out Macans and make them just as expensive as any other Porsche (well not quite, but expensive nonetheless).

This is where they got pulled over according to the ticket, sight lines are a few hundred feet, WAY too low to be going 80+.

I get the ticket going the speed limit when being passed by the big pick-up, like radar doesn't report the strongest signal.  Cops really dislike my car.  So your mileage may vary.

The map shows a stretch of road about a mile long.  It looks like they came off of Highway 93 and then were headed toward Blackhawk, fairly lame spot for a ticket as it's not a real fun part to drive at that point.  Keep in mind that in these cars, you can get up to 80 and then brake (Porsche's have amazing factory brakes, no fade) in a relatively short distance.  All that said, nothing really good comes from driving in a crowd like that which is why I haven't joined the owners club with my lowly used naturally aspirated Boxster.  I wise man once said it is more fun to drive a slow car fast!

Yeah, amazing you could miss the photo of a curving road in mountainous country. Just like most single lane Interstates I've seen. Go 80.

It was probably called in by a motorist who got passed on corners by 10 jackwads with more money than sense.

In town, or on a turnpike that could work.  Most places where I've seen chains of fast cars rolling at 100+, there's no way that would work without a small army.  The roads have a dozen breaks and don't even prevent U turns.

The cops will have the license plates. You run, you can add Evading Police, Resisting Arrest, and probably a whole bunch of other stuff. Stop and you just get a speeding ticket.

Me either but mine hasn't ran in 13 years and even when it was brand new a 0-60 time of 16 seconds is actually a tad slower than my Nissan Versa.

It's not a development. There are no crossroads in that area. I'm going to assume they launched as they came out of the area with the crossroads.

I remember in my youth I did stupid s*** like that. Then I lost my license. Then I got it back after many years. But I thought 80 on the highway was fast and areas like they were running in I'd max out about 60. Those were the days where 55 was the limit on the highway so 60 was very fast on a back road.

That area is about 30 minutes from me. I'm a transplant from the East Coast where I was taught to drive in dense traffic 90% of the time. So I am really careful, especially since I was without a license for most that time.

Every day that I drive in Colorado someone does something stupid and almost causes me to have a serious accident. Every time I drive it is at least once. As opposed to once every 6 months back on the East Coast.

Colorado drivers suck. Yeah that's a generic statement, maybe you are the one good one. But you guys suck. You were trained at a time of low density and in the last 10 years it has jumped tremendously and you have not adjusted. You simply can't handle the density.

Back to the issue at hand. If you can afford the Porsche you can afford the ticket. I doubt this will change their driving habits at all.
