autblog audi mileage marathon blog bores itself to death

See? I knew Sam Abuelsamid’s cross-country trek in an Audi Q7 TDI would ultimately descend into farce. On the positive side (at least for Sam): his most recent epistle has made it straight onto Autoblog, as opposed to languishing on the Autobloggreen side of the biz. On the negative side (at least for Audi): it’s got nothing whatsoever to do with Audi, diesels or fuel economy. It’s all about… a Porsche Carrera GT! I find it hard to believe that Sam reckoned he should abandon his oil burning focus to blog a “spotted in the wild” 11mpg (combined) V10-engined supercar. (Hence the reason Autobloggreen forgot to include this report in its Audi Mileage Marathon canon.) But then I know how the transcontinental thing can scramble your brains– even without popping black beauties and listening to Teenage Nervous Breakdown on a Nakamichi cassette deck. Ah, those were the days. Anyway, Sam shouldn’t have been so surprised to discover the car in Arkansas. It’s one of the fastest ways out of Kansas. Just kidding; the Sunflower State rocks! Well, the band did
