  2. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    I'd go for the Elise over both of course!<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    i would choose the new speedster turbo (192 hp / 700kg) or the steinmetz "funster" (225 hp / 710kg)...

    elise?! its got only 122 hp... but the design is cool ;)

  4. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    It's only got 120bhp.....so what?
    It still performs exactly the same as the VX220
    The Elise Sport 130 out performs both with a 0-60mpg dash of 5.3secs.
    The Elise Sport 190 car gets to 60mph in 4.4secs.

    So you'd take a Vauxhall over a Lotus?...........nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo<!-- Signature -->

    I'd go for not one or the other, but I dislike the Boxter.<!-- Signature -->

    Look, when this car (the Speedster) comes with a Turbo, it's gonna whip the Elise so easily. It's got a way better engine as of now, and when the Turbo comes, ohhh yes. I'll have it in red.

    Funny boy!
    The VX220 doesn't have the better engine.........a bhp fetish maybe?
    Lotus produce a 190bhp version that can reach 60mph in 4.4secs.......if u want more then you can get a Turbo Technics conversion for a 0-60mph run of 4.2secs.

    Think before you speak mate!<!-- Signature -->

    Why? The Boxster beats it in any way? Except for maybe weight. This thing is light.<!-- Signature -->

  11. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    When a Lotus produces 190 horsepower it is madly tuned. The Opel Engine produces 147 horsepower without being tuned at all, they made the engine and put it in, it's got way more potential than the Elise.
    So yeah, I would take the Opel, it's basically an Elise with a bigger engine.
     
  12. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    The Speedster/VX220 got a top speed of 220km/h and the Elise only 200km/h. So the Speedster/VX220 performs better!!!
     
  13. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    Oh dear, I refuse to speak to anyone who talks about top speed when comparing these cars
     
  14. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    I would go with this Opel, first off because this is much more rare than the Boxster. and if i were in this masterpiece of a car driving in the streets and people say this they would turn their heads 360 degress just to keep their eyes on it. this is beautifull as is the Boxster. but like i said i'd go with the Opel
     
  15. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    I'd take a Honda S2000 240bhp 9000 RPM redline 0-60 5.5 seconds. Not to mention the high amount of aftermarket products are easy to get for this car.
     
  16. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    Both great cars, but i would take the porsche. More usebel everyday.
     
  17. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    I agree.
     
  18. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    Porsche Boxter S Deffinantly
     
  19. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    you have to dump the clutch at 8000 rpm to get that time. and the 240 hp kicks in at 6250rpm. its like a civic engine unil that time, then after 6250rpm, its like a civic that ad a shot on nos
     
  20. Re: Opel Speedster Vs. Porsche Boxster S

    I'd take the Porsche in a heartbeat.
