Boxster in Motion

Dear friends of the Boxster,

as I am quite ill at the moment, I had some time to cut a small video of the Boxster 2.7 with the Porsche Sport Exhaust. We in Germany discussed in our Forums why the Boxster is so cool and therefore I took some scenes out of my archives which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTf_3lJuw48

Best regards from Germany!
Michael

Beautiful area for a drive... in a Porsche of course! Exhaust sounds great to the ears and the mountains are candy to the eyes. Hope recovery goes well...

Michael, welcome to the forum and thanks for the great sights and sounds! Now THAT exhaust sounds good.

Ah, the beauty of driving without Left-Lane-Sleepers (LLS). Did anyone notice how quickly and nicely that white Fiat moved to the right the moment he saw an opening (about 2 mins into the video) -- and after noticing faster traffic coming from behind? The traffic moved smoothly and the road was packed! If there was that much traffic on a US three-lane road, everyone would've been driving 40mph in clusters caused by LLS. OK, had to vent this out.

Thank you all for the great feedback and the warm welcome!

I am almost well again and weather is getting better here day by day. I cannot wait to do the next tour with it.

The PSE is really worth the money! If you install it, I would not connect it to the engine management as it should be done if you do it as it was meant by Porsche. Accordingly you have no switch for the exhaust in the cockpit. Then you safe about 600 bucks of installation costs and the exhaust is open/loud all the time. Between 40 and 70 km/h it would switch to quiet otherwise. The same did I - no connection to the engine-management and therefore more sound for less money.

And the airfilter for only 40 bucks really makes sense as well. After installing the air filter my 2001 2.7 goes 278 km/h (of course not on GPS but according to the cockpit display) on the motorway without help, just from his own power. Beside that, the sound while accelerating got better in comparison to the normal filter.

Best regards, Michael
