I was comming to work today and there was this woman driving a purple beetle, with the lil turbo emblem on back. I have seen her before and we both have weaved in and out of traffic a little, but we never got to line up. Today I finally did. We were at a red light and we both couldn't rev really because there was an incline. So the light turns green and we both go for it. I gained on her in every gear. Brought the coug to 6800 each time ad she had nothin on me. My biggest gain was in third gear. I wasn't impressed at all.

Oh and just for all the prudes. The traffic was extremely minimal, this was 7 oclock in the morning.

Yeah beetles arent fast in stock form. If it was the turbo diesel they only make 100hp not sure what the turbo gas engine makes but the 0-60 isnt impressive.

Turbo S comes with a six-speed, and is VERY fast for a beetle. When my friend drove one he told me he chipped in third without even shifting ridiculously hard. I have only done that in my cougar twice. Not to say that really matters but that is impressive.
