Drove another Boxster today. They are growing on me, well balanced, fun car. Its a good package that I've needed a few drives in to appreciate more.


They are an underrated car. I drove the Carrera S loan car and then my Boxster S up and down Montacute back to back and reckon I preferred the Boxster. If you need rear seats then it is a moot point though.  And the 911 was missing the sports exhaust and a couple of other desirable options...

At this stage I'm just thinking out loud, nothing serious :)

I might have a chat with Dale if it gets more serious before my build is frozen but I suspect there is enough of a difference between the two to acquire a nice daily. Previously I didn't appreciate the Boxster as much as I did today. Guess I'm a slow learner, but I needed a few drives to really feel it...

I just watched the vid. Nice car, nice road but what's a bloke doing driving a girl's car.  :confused:

Shit stirrer!

Actually, in all honesty that's the biggest problem with the Boxster; its image. Shame really.

Cayman GTS is the one to go for....slightly more power again and a proper roof!

And it does look good in red too, not a red car guy normally but it does look good in the vid.

No denying they are a great looking car, I'm with you on the colour alpine, it's suits the car.

I so hope they do an R.

Not from the rumours I've heard, turbo 4 maybe... GT4??

I did like my R.
