K, so here's the secret... you need to get another spare tire like the one in your front trunk, and put them both on the rear of the car. Now put in the clutch, put it in first gear, turn the wheel all the way to the left, then put the gas pedal to the floor and just hold it there. Don't worry, the rev limiter will prevent you from doing any damage to the engine. Now slip your foot sideways off the clutch so it pops up really hard, and hold on. When you hear a bang from the back, that will be the first level audible tire level warning indicator. When you hear the second bang it means you still have about 30 seconds left until the tire wear becomes serious. Enjoy!

Of course not. He thinks he's being funny. It's a good example of why you shouldn't post when you're 'faced.

Porsche's are too fragile for that kind of fun. You'll brake things continuously.

I dont think he is asking what you guys think. He wants to know how to do Dougnuts ...which has nothing to do with cars. Find a dude name Doug and grab his nuts...that simple

Simple, actually...
  1. Get up and dressed by 8:00 am
  2. Go to garage
  3. Lower top and start car
  4. Drive directly to Dunkin Donuts while observing the rules of the road
  5. Order a dozen donuts of your choice along with a cup of java
  6. Place the box of donuts on passenger seat and the coffee in the cup holder
  7. Restart car
  8. Proceed to nearest interstate entrance
  9. Enter highway
  10. Drive 100+
  11. When smokey pulls you over, offer him or her a jelly filled donut
  12. Have one yourself along with a sip of coffee as smokey writes out the speeding ticket and gets ready to arrest you for the attempted bribe.

Now you've done donuts

First you need LSD dude. Preferably a clutch-pack type for that.

Then it will go up for sale as "an adult driven vehicle, never abused or raced" Just make sure you get all the rubber off the bumper first.
In all seriousness, these cars aren't made for that type of pounding. Get a Camaro or Mustang if your primary goal is to drive the lips off it.

reminds me of this

Monaco Grand Prix winner JPM. But I think he was doing it more as a joke than being all serious like the pimply faced spikey hair guys that pull up to me at red lights wanting to race their STi

Empty parking lot in winter -- the boxster does donuts marvelously in the snow.

I've seen JD do donuts in his Boxster and it makes him drive much faster.
