Firstly, Chris harris has as many off days as on days. I don't rate his criticism very highly.

Secondly, the ONLY problem AND THE BEST THING with the Boxster, is that it looks EXACTLY like a 911... to 99% of people.

Chris was only an example. I dont think he's the god of motor reviews.

The difference between the Boxster 911 comparison is altogether different to the Masa or Ferrari model comparison because the Boxster has been feminised, too many women drive them and the PERCEPTION is that they are second best but ok for the wife.

I agree they are probably as good as the 911 in a different way as is the Cayman, it's the perception thats the problem and it's common so you cant escape it by explaining to everyone why your Boxster isn't the entry model.

Why?

You were happy with an entry level Maserati..... In fact, by your own admission, it was too good for you  :tilt:

Still think they are the best bang for buck around and now the GS is dirt cheap as well :?

Never saw the 4200 as the entry level Masa, just a different model.

that's the point...

the 4200 was the entry level Maserati, but because it looks different to the others, you see it as a different car...

The Boxster looks the same, so you see it as the entry level due to price.

Not sure what is is but the new Boxster looks great IMHO however the problem of perception persists........perhaps the new one not looking the same might make a difference.

stuff perception. I buy cars because I like them. I dont give a f*ck what other people think. Its my money and I'll spend it how I want.
