My 1998 Base Boxster is the best one ever made.....

Based on all my research, I have learned that IMS not a real issue with 1997-2000 because of double row, robust design (went to single row after 2000) Some of the 1998 had cylinder sleeve slipping issues, but mine was not built in that two month period so I am safe from that. I can now stop worrying about IMS failure and put my full time and efforts into being elected the next Pope.

I think you need a bit more research before you can lay claim to either title.

p.s.
A distant cousin of my father's was on the short list for Pope once.
Meanwhile my father wouldn't step foot in a Church, Catholic or otherwise, if not for my mother.

Newest spy pictures of the 2014 Papal Boxster. Latest news from the Papal See is that the new Pope will proclaim IMS cured by divine intervention.

To Pothole: If you insist: "Okay, it's a joke."

To Porsche Chick: You're much butcher than I would have expected.
