Yet another special edition Boxster????

spotted this one at Barnes & Noble the other day...

Boxster - B&N Edition



cute book in the kids section... too bad it naively states it's motor is in the rear of the vehicle and scaling is a tad off from the firetrucks and school buses adjacent Not a fan of the wheel combo either but I like the concept of starting them young

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming

Wasn't there a Jeep thread on the Forum a few weeks ago? Here is the solution: Jeep + Boxster in one!

Looks like something from a Top Gear episode!

It looks like the book is accurately depicting the current trend in unecessarily large wheels.
