Waldo Stakes, a California contractor, designed a rocket car that supposedly could hit 2,000 mph. But he’s not planning on driving- he wants Leslie to be the first woman in history to break the current 763 mph land speed record.
How does Porterfield feel about this potential opportunity? She said it best- “I have the bug. I have no idea when I’ll be done, and I don’t know if I ever will be, because I just know that I can go faster.”
When asked if she wants to go 2,000 mph if possible- “I have to say that I’m crazy enough to say yes to that question.”
