Boxster "Big" Brother

I was on the way to the football game this morning and in the rear-view mirror, I saw a black "996" based car coming onto the interstate. I was accelerating up to around the 3 figure mark when the black beauty pulled into the fast lane. Let me put it this way -- I was standing still when he flew past me. My tongue was hanging when I realized it was a GT2. The sound was extremely loud as the tt's were fully spooled. My guess, based upon my speed of around 110 mph, he was pushing 170+ (yes, still accelerating)! About 5 miles later I saw him doing normal highwasy speeds, and my tongue was still out. When I got along the side of him, he smiled, thumbs up, and reading his lips, he shouted "nice car!"

... Man I love these cars!!!

Umm... Isn't 170 illegal?

My local dealer just got what (apparently) is the only GT2 headed for Wisconsin. It's silver, and it's gorgeous!

I assume 170 is illegal in most states (maybe not Montana?); but, hey, if you ca afford a GT2, the local county hotel may not be such a bad night....


Yes, the car is very intense, but, then, I think my Boxster is also intense!!!

It sure does seem like AS is the color of choice for the '01/02/03 models.........

My Lotto wish list:

GT2 in Lapis/savannah
C4S -- the daily driver in lapis/Savannah
Boxster -- in, duh, perhaps lapis/savannah (other daily driver when I need the rag-top!)

Of course, I will also be kind to my buds on this forum and front a few boxsters........



The biggest challange will be the options: do I front the extra $800 for the footwell lights?????

Dreaming is so nice.........
