Couldn't see anything nice there. Redlining a Boxster on a straight two-lane road at 140+mph (at night!) only makes me cringe. The driver was sadistic to the car, the oncoming traffic, and masochistic to himself. But that's just me...

z12358: No, it's not just you; I agree. The person driving this car is an idiot.

I think its the seat belt light, not that a belt would matter at 140. Looked like a pretty rural area, deer. I dont mean oh dear I mean Bambi

"...with good taste in music."

The mellow pacing of District Sleeps Alone was the perfect accompaninent for the 4th-6th gear run. I wasn't sure which would go longer...the song or the time it took reaching top speed.

Not knocking the 2000 S, but if I'm trying to impress strangers on the net I would have omitted the 120-140 mph crawl...

I do like that song too. Some of you guys have good taste in music. Right on.

And yeah, his check engine light is on.

And about 2 minutes into it, there's an oncoming car... and his brights are on... at 140mph
