Wish I could take credit for it Randall, but I can't even spell Photoshop, let alone use it.

I don't know. The S version would be nice - but the ceramic brake option on the mini-GT just seems like overkill.

Think they make a supercharger for the Mini-Boxster? The one I drove just seemed like it needed more horsepower (at least compared to the Mini-Carrera)....

LOL denverpete, Those arent real cars LOL, they would flip over in a heart beat on a sharp corner. Its all photoshoped, if you look in the background of the Sboxster, you can see the cars across the street are also squshed LOL

I don't think so. I drove both the Mini-Boxster and Mini-Carrera just last weekend. Photoshopped! Good-One! In fact I just put down a deposit for an Arctic Silver Mini-Boxster to go with my Mini-Ferrari Modena (now that's a SWEET ride)....

Seriously. And I mean absolutely no disrespect at all to your intellect. But.....

Get the Mini-Boxster S and wait for the IA Supercharger.....

You know Pete, I'm not sure that I ever properly thanked you for taking me for a ride in the Mini-Modena last time I was out to see you.

Here's one of the pictures I took.

Thanks again, dude. That's one awesome ride!

IMHO, the wheels just look too big on these minis. I'd order them with 14" wheels or smaller. Saw some at the Photo Shop (dealer) today with 14" wheels and they looked much better.

Squished!?! They're not squished! They're just blurry because EpiqTodd is going so freakin' fast! You should know that just by looking at his spoiler! Are you suggesting that Todd is not being truthful, and that he really never had a Mini-Boxster at all?!?! I, for one, am offended by the implication.

Simmer down, both of you. It's a well known effect for very fast cars such as the Boxster. Read up on General Theory of Relativity. Space-time (including the objects in it) deforms (or "squishes") as the Boxster approaches the speed of light. I've done it couple of times myself and, let me tell you, all that squishing and stretching wreaked havoc with my back.

The new Mini Porsches are pretty cool but lay your eyes on this bad boy. The German Military has been trying to keep it on the down low.
