Angry Bye, Box

Was rear ended and pushed into oncoming traffic, hit three more times. Sprained, bruised and concussed but made it out with a broken finger or two.

Box is gone though. Going to miss her. I'll add more pics tomorrow when I go to get my things.

Holy crap! Sorry to hear man, that looks nasty. Thankfully you were able to walk away though relatively unscathed.

Wow you took a beating -- glad you came out of it relatively unscathed.

Tough little car.

How is the insurance handling that. In PA you'd be responsible for the cars you hit after being ping ponged into traffic. They say you didn't have control of your car

That looks really baaaad, glad you were okay at least.
Obviously your Boxster protected you with its life.

The one who rear ends pays for everything (and a "new" Porsche)

Chin up and good luck.

Glad you are OK
Goes to show you how safe and well made the Boxster is
I hate to think of what would have happened to you in a cheap import

Be sure to get fully checked out by a Dr.

Hopefully you can get things sorted out quickly with the others guys insurance company and find yourself a new Boxster

As much as we love our cars, they are only that. The real important thing is that you were able to walk away to drive another day. Sorry for your loss

There are hundreds of thousands of Boxsters.

I'd say if you were a cat you would have used up at least 8 lives. Very lucky...

Goddamn! You did get tossed around pretty bad!

This proves that our boxsters are engineered for safety. Feel better soon and time to go shopping for another one.
