Cabriolet

You are correct about that, however some people are not as knowledgable as you. Thanks for clarifying that for us.

Wow, I can't believe this board is that hostile. I copied and pasted my original post from other boards, that's why I have the Cabriolet in there. But judging from your response, I guess I have to be extra careful posting here.

okay sub, that made me laugh

The board is not hostile. In fact, this is one of the best boards out there. Good helpful people here. Just experts, thats all. And I guess we figure whomever would read/post on the board would be knowledgable enough about the car to know they are ONLY cabs.

A cabriolet must have four seats to be called that. A Boxster is a two seater convertible and therefore is a roadster.

A 996 convertible has back seats and is called a Cab.

actually to be technical, cabriolet is a small two-wheeled horse-drawn carriage with two seats and a folding hood.

of course thats according to dictionary.com

Please don't tell me I've been driving a wagon all that time!!! Lol. Nah this board is the opposite of hostile. We like to joke a bit sometimes, instead of being serious all the time which is not very good

I thought the same thing too stryke, but a cabbie is just a coup with a soft-top. The boxster is a roadster and a cabbie.

See, now I always thought a cabriolet (in the sporty car world)was an open car that had a padded convertible top, as opposed to a roadster which has an unpadded convertible top, the padding contributing mostly to the quietness and comfort of the cabin. More luxury features also usually went with the cab body style.
Ref. the Porsche 356 Speedster, unpadded top, vs the 356 Cabriolet with the padded top. Same thing with Jags, etc. Some of the models had unpadded tops (roadsters), and some had padded tops (cabriolets).
In the case of the Boxster, it has a unpadded top, thus making it more accurately a roadster, versus the 911 Cabriolet, which has a padded convertible top.

According to some random TV show I was watching the other day, the Boxster is not even a roadster. They defined a roadster as having no windows and a simple collapsing top if any. I think the show was "Modern Marvels" on the History Channel and the topic was convertibles.

In defense of MPower I have seen the Boxster listed as a Cabbie a million times on the Internet.

I'm glad I opened this thread because I got a few good laughs out of the previous posts. I guess if you read this forum long enough you start to realize all the usual suspects are very knowledgeable good natured smart asses. (Including myself, well at least I'm a smart ass )
