SOLD: Sad Day!

The Boxster went to a new home this week :eek: . I have mixed feelings about this. I will miss the car, I think it is a great feat of engineering and I definately enjoyed my time with 'her'.

The engine swap would be nice but probably cost prohibitive for most. So if you consider cost as a factor:

1) Enjoyment - Wheels, I have a weird wheel obsession so good wheels are a must

Not sure if you are ruling out a 2005 'S' based on price, but there are good deals on them if you do your homework.

Hibernation is Over!!

I took the Boxster out of hibernation today. Really early, I don't think I pulled the trigger until early April last year. Just got sick of waiting with this lousy winter and the streets were dry...

You aren't really defining how much above $35k you will go for a 987S. I think a low mileage S could be had for $40k even, maybe even $39k. Keep in mind, with the 987 you have at least a year of...

A few thoughts:

1) The Boxster doesn't have alot of torque and the power is high in the RPM range so it doesn't 'feel' fast but it is. For guys looking to get pushed back in the seat by a sports...

I'm a bit Porsche biased so I would say go with the Boxster S, I think you may be disappointed with the power on the Base Boxster.
