    140 MPH in a Porsche on a Colorado country road. I cannot say I have never done that, so I will not preach.

    Holy crap! That was a almost an aviation type wreck. He was going more than 140 IMHO. Side gust of wind and what at that speed is a very narrow island.
    It is easy to run out of ability at that rate of speed R.I.P.
