I will say that I was thinking used 991 if a CSL doesn't pan out, but the smile factor with this car seems huge. I had a 300whp miata, and I want that smile inducing fun again.

See the squirrel at 7:42?

He's sitting there thinking "I gotta get me a squirrel version of that car!"

Something doesn't seem right. A C6 Z06 ran a 140.9 (a tenth slower). The M2 time seems too good to be true... But assuming it is accurate that is pretty awesome.

I am thinking that everyone is slowly starting to understand differences in driver skill level.

I have to agree. That time seems a ways off. My best time so far on Laguna Seca in my modified C5 Z06 was 1:50.1. It was the first time I took the car out to the track and I didn't come anywhere close to the level of grip and speed in the corners I should have, but I wasn't necessarily a slow poke, as I was passing plenty of people. I should be able to shave 5 sec off next time I go.

They're using their cell GPS to gauge time. I have the latest and greatest Samsung Note 5 and use the GPS mapping to time my walks and jogs. It's horribly inaccurate and inconsistent when you look at the data. They need a real timing transponder for the track. I call BS on the 1:40.88 time. This car definitely is not beating out a C6 Z06 Vette, Cayman R, and C63 AMG S at the hands of Randy Pobst.
