The Difference Between Porsches, Lamborghinis and Women

The difference Between Porsches and Lamborghini's and Women are all business. They get you up to speed and keep you safe. The lines of a Porsche are straightforward and functional. There are no surprises. Lamborghini's whisper to you from just behind your ear. They promise things that will thrill you if you let them. Their lines are like that of Sophia Loren; outrageous curves and surprising planes. All of it meant to be touched, not merely looked at. Porsches serve you dinner. Lamborghini's take you dancing. Actually, it's the difference between being German and being Italian. Obviously, this is a generalization and therefore, inaccurate as applied to individuals. However, events happen to nations, rarely to regions and that develops a common viewpoint. Germans are thought of as rather grim and dedicated. Italians like to sit outside a café in the sunshine and enjoy good food. The typical Porsche looks like every other Porsche; same lines, same basic design, same driving characteristics, same everything. Lamborghini's are never the same. The Gallardo shares nothing with the Countach. The Aventador has little in common with the Diablo.

The Difference Between Porsches, Lamborghinis and Women



The difference is most apparent when discussing a car's faults and the attitude of owners toward such faults. Germans make very few errors, but the errors they make don't go away because they won't admit them. They've been putting the engine in the wrong place for the past 80 years, hung out in back of the rear axle. There is one exception. The Boxster turns the engine around and places it between the seats and the rear axle. Notice that Porsche won't admit it. The Boxster's delightfully neutral handling embarrasses them. They downgraded it in terms of price and place in the line up. They treat it like an amusing novelty. This unwillingness to give up a bad idea coupled with a tendency to install power and deal with the consequences later gave us the Whaletail 911, a car with a 30/60 weight distribution and a truly nasty habit of spinning viciously in the middle of a corner when the single, massive turbocharger kicked in. At one point, Porsche refused to sell the Whaletail 911 without forcing the driver to take driving lessons. When it comes to Italian cars and their faults, it's best to take a logical trip around the block to get to an understanding. Italian men think about women a lot. Lamborghini produced an outrageous car called the Countach from 1974 until 1990. The word 'Countach' is an exclamation of astonishment in Italian, usually made by a man upon seeing a beautiful woman. Prestige Italian cars are like Italian mistresses; spoiled and capricious, capable of dreadful selfishness and breathtaking generosity (when it suits them). Get a group of Lamborghini owners together, and they'll talk about the lack of rear vision or the inability to handle steep driveways without damaging the front dam with delight and affection. It's a kind of backward bragging. They're really listing the things they are willing to put up with to own a Lamborghini. The real difference? Get ten Porsches and ten Lamborghini's together and drive them through any town in the civilized world. Onlookers will admire the Porsches, but they'll cheer when they see the Lamborghini's.
