Super pointless story, yet you can laugh at me

So I'm driving home from class, living my life, when I come to a stop at a red light near my house. A beautiful silver 911 Turbo (991) pulls up next to me and I'm just like "hey, that looks like my neighbors car." (To my knowledge,that neighbor had a GT3 RS) I thought nothing more of it and went back to listening to good ol' Hopsin.

When the light turned green, I accelerated slightly faster than normal, not really meaning to. Then I heard the ungodly sound of a turbo (turbos?) spooling and then something shoots past me so fast I can't even read the lettering on its ass. It flew away so fast I couldn't even hear him LOLing.

Sweet LORD, the 911 Turbo is fast. I don't know if you've ever seen one flying at WOT, but it definitely rivals the GT-R in the "sheer awe" factor.

To make a short story shorter, I pulled into my neighborhood to see my neighbor in that 911 Turbo pulling into his house, clearly still LOLing at me.
