Thanks for letting us know. I never would have found it on the Science Channel and have been looking forward to watching it. The shows on the Speed channel are pathetic imho. They're tools of the car companies. I don't think they've ever found a car they didn't like. Ditto for their magazines.

Hi,

Yea, I caught it too. I especially liked the sequence on the Konigsegg and the one where the Apatche Gunship tries to get Missile Lock on an Exige - http://youtube.com/watch?v=p-w89KUAWAE

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

These are reruns. If you'd like to see the current season, the best way I know is to either watch the episodes in segments on youtube or download them using bittorrent from finalgear.com. I prefer the download method as they're in full-screen, but the mechanisms for doing so may be a little more involved than one would like.

That show pushed me off the fence to buy the BoxsterS. I was leaning heavy toward the S2000 even though I wasnt crazy about the looks of either car. When I saw Tiff Needel(sp?) driving the wheels off the car with a big smile and then their claim of high residiual value I forgot about the Honda.
Although I really can't stand listening to Clarkson and his obvious to the world bias against Porsche. He amused himself by driving an old 911 into a wall once and thought it was really funny. This is why I can only take Brit humor in small measured doses.
