  2. hmmmm even tho the honda is a maniak and probably more fun, i mite go 4 the new boxster as it looks more of an improvement than the previous 1 but good comparison
     
  3. porsches are some of my favorite cars even though they aren't as fast. however, if we are doing comparison tests with just speed in mind. take a look at next year's corvette. i'ts 0-60 is as fast as a porsche turbo (about $150,000). yup. porsches aren't the fastest but somehow, i've learned to love them over all other cars.
     
  4. although the specs are extremely close, i would rather wake up to a Porsche over a Honda, i kno, i'm a badge snob!!! Personally, tho, i'd rather a Lambo above all!!!
     
  5. I really was never a big Boxster fan to begin with... Another expensive german alternative to the Mazda Miata. Quite frankly, the styling was never eye catching, the engine lusty, or really being a value compared to the other machines in it's class.

    What I did like about the Porsche, however, was the fact that it was a respectable performance machine...Not that it was up to Corvette standards, although it should have been for it's price point, it drove like a performance machine that it was meant to be...A modern interpretation of the origional 550 Spyder.

    Pretty much automatically, the S2000 got my vote. It is cheaper, faster, and a more "realistic" performance machine. The engine is where it is meant to be, there arent computers running everything, and it is meant to be driven with the top down.

    Given a year or two, dont be suprised to see the Pontiac Solstice running a muck with the big boys... A 240 HP turbocharged model is due at the end of 2005, and sould keep up with the Porsche.
     
  6. I would rather the honda, because i am always up for tuning up my car, even though i prolly wouldent tune the porche i would work on the honda because i can find alot more parts for it.
     
  7. The Boxter gets my vote. These cars are dead even with the exception of the boxter's superior mid engine layout.
     
  8. And the price...
     
  9. Uhh, Porsches are slow? Not really. Yes the Z06 is faster by a tenth of a second! That will make all the difference in the world! Unless you were racing on a track, where the Porsche would totally annihilate the inferior Vette. Yes, the Vette is a good track car but definitely not as good as a Porsche Turbo. After many years and many dominant wins at Le Mans, Porsche has always been very fast, reliable, and worth every penny.
     
  10. Price no object, the Porsche is obviously better. The Honda may be on quite the same level, but it uses a 4-cylinder which is obviously quite near the limit of it's naturally aspirated potential. The Porshce has a F6- it isn't even near it's potential, yet, with 240hp. Tuning the S2000 (with no blowers or turbos), 300hp is already a dream come true.
     
  11. But if the Porsche isnt that mauch better than an S2000 or Mazdaspeed Miata, then why does it cost more than $40K?

    Because it has a Porsche badge on the front.
     
  12. Porsche Boxster Definately...the S2000 or the Mazda Miata offer the luxury and comforts the Porsche does...you just can't compare Hondas and Mazdas to Porsche.
     
  13. seriously
    so far everyone(pretty much) has picked the porsche
    i personnallly think the new s2000 is really really ugly
    so i would definetely go with the porsche
     
  14. but honestly I wouldn't mind either cars <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  15. I would go with the Vette instead of either. Considering the vette will cost as much as the Boxster, why would you want a boxster?
     
  16. it most certainly is the Boxter
     
  17. Boxster has more luxury and is more of a flashy car that says look at me I have status <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>

    This Porsche Carrera GT Supercar reproduction built on a Porsche Boxster is an EXTREMELY RARE offering because 85% of our business comes from custom orders from scratch rather than finished products. PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS CAR JUSTICE! Own this beauty and drive it year round and even daily if you wish, as it retains it's value! CALL ME if you are serious rather than emailing as I have it advertised other places and I reserve the right to sell it at ANY TIME. The reserve is only for this stunning beauty. It comes with the removable hard top so it is like 2 cars in one!

    This gorgeous vehicle was painted with REAL Lamborghini Murcielago orange metallic paint and is BRAND NEW. One lucky new owner is really going to enjoy this one! This is among sharpest and most original Porsche vehicles you will EVER find out there. This beauty is absolutely stunning and will turn heads wherever you go. It is so rare that the buyer will probably be the only person in their entire state to own one. You will grin from ear to ear as you drive around people who paid much more for their vehicle while they wind up getting far less attention that you do.

    A real one would cost you over $400,000! Now with this rare offering, you can get a quality reproduction for a small fraction of the cost. This beauty looks great and it is done in a very unique and beautiful color combination. If you are the lucky person to get it, you will experience being one of the rare few to enjoy an exotic like this. Drive something that nobody else has!

    In any situation, when you pull up to a stop light, club, a grocery store, a gas station, a restaurant...you will be the center of attention. Have fun at car shows too! When you pull up next to high end cars costing twice as much, this car will make them look boring in comparison. This gorgeous vehicle is very beautiful and exotic. I know you will be impressed with the detail of this reproduction.

    This work of art on wheels features a stick shift transmission, real Porsche interior, custom exhaust work, custom grills, custom lights, AC, power windows, all emblems (will include Carrera GT emblem), removable hard top, alarm, beautiful and very expensive IFORGED wheels measuring 20 x 8.5 in front and 20 x 10 in back. Standard boxter engine with power mods bringing it to 240 HP. Brand new with only 16 miles on it since the build. Porsche Boxster donor vehicle has 57k original miles on it. There is enough trunk space for 4 large duffel bags. The tall center pieces behind the headrests are removable for yet another beautiful custom style and even more of a convertible feel!

    The fine Boxster donor vehicle is sure to serve you well for years. The body is made of a combination of steel and fiberglass and the thickness and strength of the body is outstanding. The engine is the strong running and reliable 6 cyl boxster engine. This one features upgrade items such as: custom exhaust. Also remember your power to weight ratio� this body is so light that for example, 240 HP in this car feels like 300 HP would in a steel bodied vehicle. You could do other things to up your HP if you wish.

    This car is so rare and so certain to retain its value that you could undoubtedly drive it for a year and sell it for the same price you paid for it! Other advantages to this reproduction besides saving hundreds of thousands of dollars over the real thing are that it is inexpensive to insure and maintain. Parts are readily available and it gets 25 miles per gallon instead of about 8 like most exotics! Another great thing about this beautiful Porsche GT Supercar reproduction is that you can get out and enjoy driving this vehicle daily if you wish. With some super exotic vehicles you put them in your garage, rub it with a diaper, drive it only on Sunday and pay $5000 for a tune-up. You won't have those issues with this beauty! Your maintenance costs and insurance will be very reasonable!
