Interesting. About a bit over 1/3 of the way into the video, the silver one pops the top up at speed (not THAT fast, but faster than I'd be comfortable doing so).

Anybody out there try that?

It's hard to tell---how fast you suppose he's going? 40-ish? (It's funny, just before that happened, the spoiler comes up at what appears to be about the same speed. Driver-deployed I guess.)

Thank you very much for posting that. I had a huge smile on my face the whole video. Its snowing here in Chicago, so seeing Boxsters running around on cool roads in beautiful weather is exactly what I needed.


Frodo, I'm guessing they were doing about 25mph while putting the tops up. And I'm also gussing the spoiler went up due to the driver hitting the button. Remember, the film crews had to be moving as fast as the cars to get some of those shots.

Great video!! Usually I cringe at the all-too-common-techno-music-laden-amateur-youtube-video, but that one was really well done.

Stevie Ray, great he was....

The video belongs to Porsche I got it off of their website. I just added the music which just seems to go with our "pride & joys"

ummm....I kept wating for the Altima's to come out

Nissan's been killing that song, and I think they had to be going pretty slow cause isn't like 27 MPH the max fo putting the top up or down while moving.....
