Best 987 review ever....

More content from my favorite car-site (other than this one). Probably the most amusing (and complimentary) 987 review I've read.

"To put it bluntly, the Boxster’s a blowjob with wheels."

I couldn't have said it better myself!

Is it my imagination or are automotive journalists referring to cars as "whips" far too often these days? I think just about every sporty car review I read lately says something about a car being a "seriously fast whip" or some such.

I think Robert Farago (also featured on TTAC and who wrote about the 987 S before) is a bit of a better writer than this guy, but I love reading about guys who underestimated the Boxster.
