Boxster Top End

This is one of the things I like about the Boxster... It shines where others fade...

He won in them both if you watch until the end... the second one was from a stop, which we all know the 986 isn't ideal for.

I had a 20th Anniversary Edition GTI, just like the one in the video, except it was blue. Keep in mind this is an 180hp, FWD $24k car when bought new. Disappointing that it was even that close, given the Boxster's higher hp and lower weight. No to mention twice the cost of the GTI.... I'd say not the best driver out there.

Cant believe those 5 year olds on the youTube thread actually think that the Honda S2000 is a better car than a porsche... All they are doing is making excuses as to why there beloved jetski didnt do well on the track. All cars were driven in the same conditions, what more do you want.?!

Ummm anyone realize they ran a 3.0L Z4 and 2.7L Boxster? Why not the 3.2L Box?

Dude half the people on you tube have probably never even been inside a Boxster let alone drive one.

True, True & True... Its like those geeks & freaks that wet themselves over a Civic beating a Viper in a drag race, Its like Who cares, The viper is a Viper and a Civic is still a civic., I'd still want to own the Viper instead.

Hah, I was going to say it's because the cameraman's weight is making the difference in whichever car he's riding in, but I realized the cameraman's car seems to be doing better, not worse with the extra 180 lbs. Hmm...magic power-inducing camera?

Suburban Function?
I loved the old Corrados! That's what I wanted in high school (and the MR2) while my friends lusted after Camaros & Mustangs. GTIs are cool, and that DSG transmission is unbelievable.

No, it's a 20th AE GTI - Imola yellow paint and the plain black sideview mirrors are the giveaway. The wheels are very similarto the R32s, 18s and a very similar pattern - don't think they were identical, though.

Bog those type of guys are not worth the time or effort. Like you said you can shine a turd all you want and at the end all you get is a shinny turd. Those guys are the turd my friend, not the riced out MR2.
