Boxster smile!

I think they should add "Boxster Smile" to dictionary, something like - ear-to-ear smile that involuntary appears on your face the moment you get inside a Boxster.

I was driving back from work yesterday.. slow traffic, long day.. everyone is tired and sad ... driving home..

Sitting at the traffic light I notice a gray Boxster base, on the other lane in front of me.. the driver was having a blast.. it really looked like he was listening to "What is love" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zlViU5PBPY

Anyway my lane moved a bit faster, I pass him, wave to a fellow Boxster owner.. and.. here it goes:
Hi waved back with both hands, and gave me a biggest smile I ever saw

That's when I realized that "Boxster smile" is something that only this little car can give to it's owners..

He made my day and reminded me that no matter what happens, when you're driving your Boxster.. good spirit comes to you!

Have a great Boxster day!
Sasha

agreed

i love how this simple sports that is under powered (it todays standards) evokes so much thrill and satisfaction. I also get this happy when driving our 86 vanagon westie. Both are great rides just very different.

Thanks Sasha.

I am having a great Boxster day! I’ve been driving my 986 on this beautiful California day. Bought lunch for 12 of my employees then drove back home smiling and thinking how much I like this car! The spirit of the great Dr. does live-on in these vehicles; there is no doubt about that.
