Holy crap! Don't look now, but I think someone finally gets it!

"What's that, you say? You're afraid people will think your Boxster isn't a real Porsche? Worried they'll think you bought a Cayman because you can't afford a 911? The staff of Automobile Magazine hereby informs you that those people are fools, and their opinions don't count."

By Jove, I think they do get it, I couldn't agree more. That review will make me smile all the more when I drive my Boxcar (which I plan on doing today as the sun is out even though it is COLD).

Just to digress a bit, how is your back coming along Grizz? Think you will be back on the job before Christmas?

People truly in the "know" about cars, appreciate the Boxster. These two magazines obviously get it, as they should. As for the 6 to 12 "gold chain" car enthusiasts, it's okay that they'll never "get it".

It's actually a handicap access ramp. What I won't do to get a nice photo of the Boxster.
