Porsche drivers are three times more likely to have a crash than those who drive a Daewoo, research suggests. :eek

Austin? That shows how far back these records go. What relevance are they to today's cars? 911s in the 70s/80s were lethal in the wrong hands. Totally different car today.
This is also clearly taken from insurance claim records. Fiats and Daewoos are worthless after a few years. Who would bother to claim for a dented Daewoo? One wishes journalists would do their job properly without scaremongering about 'dangerous' Porsche drivers using nonsense statistics.

WHS.

Not sure what that's proving. In my opinion BMW drivers are the worst drivers. If some twat is going to be tailgating you in the motorway you can bet your bottom dollar it's some twattish sales rep in a Beamer.

I thought to buy a BMW you had to be a drug dealer or a pimp? :confused:

And dont ask which one I am......

Not sure what that's proving. In my opinion Audi drivers are the worst drivers. If some twat is going to be tailgating you in the motorway you can bet your bottom dollar it's some twattish sales rep in a Audi.

At weekend at the end of my road I saw a 2012 Porsche 996 turbo convertable in white had rear ended a X-reg fiesta, the Porsche owner looked close to tears the front was a mess.

One of the reasons I drive a heap of junk - if/when it gets trashed I wont care. Helps when traffic merges too.

Oh and I have no money either.

You'll feel a lot better when they grow up, marry, get divorced and make you babysit your grandchildren whilst they spend money from divorce settlement. :wink
