If I had five Hooter's Girls rubbing my backside like that I'd be sweating too

I believe the 0.36 is a correct number for the pre-S4 body. The S4 is 0.34 with the cooling flaps closed. There was a thread I read recently about the Cd of the 928. IIRC the Cd of the 928 is better BACKWARDS than forwards. It's funny because the 928 looks like it's Cd would be amazing with it's "melted bar of soap" type shape. I guess it's just not that slippery due to the sheer frontal area.

EDIT: Here is a link to the thread about the 928 Cd.

If this is correct at 0.36 Cd that would make it less streamline than my turbo at 0.35 or my C2 at 0.32 Cd. Which is not at all what I expected, especially since Holbert chose the 928 to test top speed over a 911 turbo. Newer 911's are much more streamline than the older 911's. i wonder where the Panamera comes in.

Anthony, WHERE is that blue 928????? SERIOUSLY! Blue82 has to few miles on it to drive and that is the OB clone of Blue82 (it is a competition package car) so that would be a GREAT alternative...I'd sell my '81 for that bad boy!

LOVE the HOOTERS girls btw. Was at one for lunch today...didn't have a 928 with me...next time!

We know someone with an old corvette that body style and testarosa, we were just waiting to befriend a benz owner before we make a group photo

I appreciate the link. i am surprised that these cars have such a poor drag but it makes since now that I read the thread. In the 80's I had my euro 80 and it was a fast car for the time although my friend had a Citroen SM which was one of the most amazing cars of the time with the teardrop shape (nose being far wider than the rear it had a Cd of 0.26 which made it glide through the air like nothing else I had driven and you could really feel the difference.

Kind of looks like the new Panamera wonder what the Cd is on that car.

I am sure some of you remember this scene of the SM being trashed. Quite the shame as these are hard to find today and what a fun car to drive when Citroen made the only air suspension and coupled with a Maserati engine the sound was intoxicating not to mention it moved.

Jim:

I guess I understand the distraction here, and why no one has commented, but I HAVE to say the Folger's muffler (turbo?? or whatever it is) has got to go. As our cars get older we have to make compromises, some things that do not show are OK, but that is not acceptable.

Um, Steve? Where is your new 928 related pic? The pic of that blond is not yours and she is getting older by the post. (Although from her appearance I would not kick her out of bed unless it was to join her on the floor.)

All Best,

Allen in Allentown, PA
