    The Earth is hollow, that's where Bigfoot goes to sleep.

    to prove, and measure, the flatness of the earth, we must first place it on an adequately-sized, and certified by the bureau of standards, surface plate.
    Then it has to be checked with highly accurate measuring gauges, certified by bureau of standards. And then, a profilometer must be run over the surface, to ensure that hills and valleys, mountains and canyons, are not out-of-tolerance. Then it gets thrown on a rotab - why! no-one knows.
    All this must be done in a temperature-controlled metrology laboratory, at 68 degrees Fahrenheit - the perfect temperature for the case of Red Stripe hidden in the cabinet under the boxes of Johanssen blocks.

    in bygone days, didn't Porsches have the 4-cylinder flat "pancake" engines, same as the VW bus?

    Purely enabling. On this board they try to trick *guys* into believing that guitar fingerboards are really radiused.

    Brother - its a freakin joke. I'm quite aware of how a sphere works. Its a joke of a thread and you question if I believe it or not? Look at the rest of the absurdity in my post. I answer my "empirically" statement with proof by looking down the street...

    That’s why we on Earth and not Jupiter. Smaller radius means mo’ vintage vibe and easier bends.

    Well, that is a very good observation. The 924, 928, 944, Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan are all in-line or V engines.

    My favorite is the 917, with 2 flat 6's bolted together for a flat 12 putting out 1000 HP. Dominated racing for years.

    Wasn't the regular 914 (obviously not the 914-6) a flat 4?

    Correct, as was the 912.

    Yup - Dr Porsche designed the original Volkswagen beetle too, during the Nazi era.
    Some think his fascination with rear-powered vehicles went even farther back than that...
