    name another car that is as luxury for $40k and has specs nearly as good. Now read the word Luxury cuz the WRX isn't.

    BTW I was amazed when I found used boxters for around $25k. Thats a pretty good deal.

    Boxsters are gay! They look boring and are slow for Porsches. The Boxster can go to hell!

  8. Re: I'm gonna buy one :D

    you know what the hell i hate? those retards who buy the base boxster model and get like body kits and huge spoilers like it's a honda civic or something. it's like, holy shit, if you want to think that you're boxster is faster, take the money that you'll put into your 5 foot tall spoiler or you're shitty-ass body kit and go get a goddamn Boxster S, then you'll actually have some balls to back up your looks.

    The S2000 lost to the Boxster and if you don't believe me then go to www.sportscartesting.com and go to tests. The Boxster is amazing and I don't think ya'll can speak about it until ya'll actually drive it.

    I wish they would have put a little more power in it. I don't know if I'd buy one. An article in Road & Track stated that the majority of Boxster owners were dissappointed and sold it or traded it in within two years of when they purchased it.

    There is many cars that are cheaper and faster than this and still have luxury options like leather seats and so on.The S2000 is much faster and much cheaper.Id say the boxer can handle a bit btr due to the low center of gravity flat 6 and by the stats in R&T.Oh yeah the BMW Z4 is a direct ar to match to this , its faster cheaper and is just as luxurious.
    S2000 -slalom 65.9mph skidpad - 0.90g
    1/4 mile - 14.1@99mph 0-60 - 5.5secs
    Boxster - slalom 68.6mph skidpad - 0.91g
    1/4 mile - 14.6@96mph 0-60 - 6secs

    remember also, porsche hp numbers might not be the best, but they sacrifice top end power for a perf. flat powerband thanks to variocam. also, porsches arent made for drag cars. specially not these.
     
  17. i dont think its even a good comparison to the s2000. its bad enough that this and not the S will beat the s2000. i think every car comparison should be wit the S because the regular is just slow and less costly.
     
  18. Many people complain about the power of the boxster. Even I do that ... it's way too weak. The truth is, the boxster engine can actually output a whole lot more power than porsche designed it to. There are many superchargers for the boxster on the market ... many say that supercharged boxsters can get up to 60 in 4.7. I don't know if that's true, I never saw a test for one, but I say it might be true ( look at the 911 turbo ... if it wouldn't have any turbos it wouldn't go a lot more faster than a boxster).
    Conclusion : Ordinary porsche engines need superchargers or turbos, especially if they want to have a chance at "the best car in the world".
     
  19. ^ s2k owns boxster type S also.
     
  20. The current 2006 Boxster S is a beast. 0-60 in 5.0 sec, slalom of 73.9 mph... Beats the Enzo by 0.9 mph. I always liked the 1997 Boxster, but the current one is amazing.
