Famous Boxster quotes...

"By the time I hit 110, I could barely tell what color car was behind me..."

Timco, when asked how his trip up for milk was after smoking some '80s Camero.

After showing off both trunks and being asked the whereabouts of the engine:
"It's nuclear powered"

Had the trunk and the frunk open. Two boys asked me where the engine was. I pointed to the clutch and brake pedals and told them it was a pedal car.

"Is that a Ferrari?"

Asked by an illiterate passerby. The first hint should have been the PORSCHE stripe on both sides.

"Is it fast" and "Can I drive it?"

I found the perfect shirt on ebay and bought a couple of them. It actually says on the shirt with the Porsche logo in the middle

Yes its fast

No you cant drive it
