Talking Boxster converts - 2 and counting

My Boxster seems to be acting as a recruiting agent for Boxsters amongst my friends

Friend No 1 who's approaching his 50th and had been planning on getting a Harley as his reward, took one look at my Boxster, and a short drive as passenger to become a huge fan. He's now looking for a Boxster that is identical to mine. Cheaper and more fun than a Harley, and the wife can come along in relative comfort!

Friend No 2. Visited these friends on Saturday, both a bit older but total speed freaks. He's currently got a Suzuki 1200 bike which he's now going to sell, partially because his wife has trouble hanging on He's the only passenger I've had in who wanted me to go faster round the bends
They'd never considered a Porsche before but are now looking for a Boxster. He says it's the closest thing to a bike, which isn't a bike that he's ever been in. Total converts!

Has anyone else experienced the Boxster effect with their friends?

That's great, another person sees the light!

Interestingly, both my friends think that my 2.7 base is more than fast enough.

Not with friends but as someone who owns a Harley (and drove it as my only transportation for about a year) I second the notion that it's the closest thing to a motorcycle out of any car I've driven. I test drove a Boxster S last June and will be buying one in the spring or summer.
