Stop it man!!! I'm getting all self conscious and defensive inside.

I've come to terms with this and have accepted that most people on the street will think I'm a douche in my boxster. I've learned to get over it and be happy because I know (at least I think) I'm not and my love for my car supersedes the paranoia. So "F" the guy in his boring Ford Focus or Honda Civic who sneers at me without knowing me. I enjoy what I drive.

No matter what your passion in life is there will always be voices of dissent tearing at your choices. You spend a long time in the ground, our hobby doesn't hurt anyone and many of us relax with a wrench in our hand and some grease around.

My girlfriend realized that if you make a stupid maneuver while driving a normal car, people around here take it personally. If you do it in a Boxster, they already think your an arsehole from the get-go and just basically ignore you. sounds like a win to me!

They can think what they want, I'm just happy they all move over for me when I'm flying up the mountain passes.

I still dont get what this guys obsession is with scarves.... I'd personally never wear one. If it was cool enough for a scarf, Id have my windscreens in place, a windbreaker on, and even quite possibly the heater. Or I might just put the top up.

The part I absolutely love is people like that author talking about what they don't know. Sure, if you can afford to lease a boxster youre a douchbag... but when time comes for a change of tires... or if you own the car.. the cost of upkeep is at least 2 times what a Ford, Chevy, or any other generic brand on the road. It takes a special person to drive a Porsche.

Then again, the saying goes: "It takes one to know one."

I wear a scarf when it's cold out, it doesn't flap in the breeze tho.

I don't wear driving gloves. Thought of buying a pair but friend said it's ghey.

Anyone who believe that, regarding the Boxster, "one of the key selling points is that a set of golf clubs will fit in the trunk" obviously hasn't driven one and, equally obviously, has no idea what he's talking about.

Except when they pose a danger, fools should be ignored.

If Spike's opinion concerns you and you're looking for relief........turn on your cable, find the channel guide and scroll through Spike's programming for the day. Problem solved. Also...since owning a Boxster I've heard a couple of "chickster" and "That's a Girl's car" comment by some, I quietly ask where is their "Girls or Chickster car?" Enjoy your Boxster and don't worry what others think.................

LOL.... I went to a gathering last night here in Long Island. I pulled in next to my buddies cars and bikes and some **************************** 996 owner says out loud "what is that, a del-sol?) My friend replied, A-hole it has your motor in it and is way nicer and cost a third the price. LOL. If I am going golfing I take my truck, not a hummer. But I don't golf, go figure. The people that make these remarks are just not educated or just know that boxsters are a better all around car for the money than most other sports cars. There not drag cars but can turn like a go-kart. Just my .02

I didn't see Ferraris listed anywhere so I am assuming I am a quadruple douchebag....and loving it. A Ferrari (assumed douchebag) (unless it doesn't qualify because it's over 30 years old), a boxster S, a late model BMW (that my wife drives) and have had in the past 3 Miatae (I think that is plural for Miata). Couldn't be happier.
