Seize the Moment
(cz . d . mmnt)

The Bible warns us over and over about presuming upon tomorrow. I’m not guaranteed a tomorrow, and neither are you.

"No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God's kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day." (Luke 9:62 MSG)

 

Living the moment. Don't always look to the future or pay attention to the past. If you always pay attention to the past, how are you ever going to move on and become something better? Enjoy life right NOW. Seize the moment! Take advantage of what you have now and learn to enjoy it all and make the best of it. Raise the bar!

You only have one life to live. Live this life to the full with God's guidance.

Live in the now and not the past or the future.

Be opportunist and take a calculated risk. Make good on opportunities presented to you, living to the fullest -- rather than being content with what you are accustomed to.

 

Pass the Past, live the Present...

Often referred to as the benchmark of exotic supercars, this is one of the two most sought-after daily-driving car. This is indeed my ultimate dream car to own. And now, that long wait is over! Thank you, Lord for blessing us with this car. 

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

500HP and 479ft-lbs of blazing Torque!
Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) dual-clutch transmission
Sport Chrono package with over-boost feature that is able to punch torque to a staggering 516ft-lbs for 10 seconds
Launch Control
all-wheel drive with Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) mechanical rear axle
Porsche Traction Management (PTM)
Porsche Stability Management (PSM)
Dynamic Cornering Lights
Carbon Package
Ventilated Leather Sport Seats
Leather Multi-Function Steering Wheel

the only thing this baby do not have is the $US8840-CeramicComposite Brakes (PCCB) option!

According to AutoBlog.Com, this car is faster to 60 mph than a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 or a Ferrari Enzo - and is rated by Porsche to shoot 0-60mph in a blazing 3.2seconds, or in the low 3-second range with the PDK transmission. But we all know how Porsche always understate their ratings. Some say that they could launch this baby in just mere 2.9seconds! Some tests by independent magazines have dipped into the high 2s. That verges on the blast-off performance of a Bugatti Veyron — or a Formula One car. That is wayyyy more than enough to pin your skull to the headrests!

Traction, not horsepower, is the limiting factor. Even without using launch control (which gives you a violent high-r.p.m. start) the 911 Turbo will casually spin all four tires while rolling along in first gear. On dry pavement. With the top down.

According to The New York Times: This car’s main drawbacks, and there are two, are a matter of context rather than content. First, the 911 Turbo causes everyone to hate you. A car like a Rolls-Royce or a Lamborghini is so over-the-top that bystanders get a kick out of it. But a 911 is within the realm of what many people can imagine for themselves. Except, chances are, it’s still out of reach. That just causes resentment.

More than three decades in the making, and seven generations later, this two-door sports car is nearly perfectly cut and polished. The chassis and handling are extremely refined, the brakes tenacious, and the all-new 500 horsepower engine superlative regardless of transmission choice. Much as some may accuse the traditional 911 idiosyncrasies of being flaws, most feel they add ever important character and personality to this highly rewarding driving machine. From every facet, even under the most revealing light, this Porsche 911 Turbo is a perfectly polished gem for all occasions.

Ahh, the joy of the dual-clutch PDK combined with the Sport Chrono option!

How does all this come together? Imagine yourself behind the new three-spoke steering wheel of this 911 Turbo at the end of a long and flat straight. You call up the Sport Chrono setting to activate the PDK dual-clutch gearbox's Launch Control. With 5,000 rpm wound on the engine, you sidestep the brake and are launched with incredible intensity--the sort that sends your head careening back into the headrest and your stomach wishing it was somewhere else.

There's no hint of delay, just immediate traction as the four-wheel-drive system doles out the power to each corner. A giant wave of acceleration propels you up the road. There's no wild slithering or screeching from the huge tires out back, merely rapid forward progress. At this point, you need to focus hard just to stay on top of it all!

A thrill to drive like no other! Unlike any others, this is the true ultimate driving experience - that lives up not through marketing hype but through living user experience!

But... it's just a car! and, all I want to do is drive it. Life is too short to be nitpicking over something silly and useless!   :-))
