Boy oh Boy those first few weeks of Boxster ownership were humbling.

I killed the engine at least 25 times in first gear. You gotta give it just a little more throttle than you think to keep the engine from sputtering to a stop.

You'll see what I mean.

Also, know that the power is in the 4500 rpm range, where the engine gets nice and loud. But be careful not to redline it because redlines are always stored permanently in the computer and Porsche will use this against you if your engine ever blows.

New motor, transmission, suspension, and on and on and on it goes...
