I agree with you for the most part. But I do like some racing stripes :-) I am glad the 986 I bought was not modded at all. One of the biggest turnoffs when looking to buy a car is to see that the...

You know, I drive the 914 for the first time after I purchased the 986 and have been driving every day for about 4 weeks. I was expecting to feel like I was in some old awkward feeling/handling car....

I agree. The Boxster is a great bargain. If you can do your own maintenance, it is a super bargain. The nice thing is that the 986 is a classic form.

914

Coming from a 914 background, I am very familiar with this "stepchild" talk. But it is all garbage, and usually from very uninformed people.

Nice!

I am a new owner as well.
