Check out this story on the Boxster E. 0-62mph in 5.5 sec.

Would you buy one?


Sorry, I'd love to post the story/pic here but the copyright Nazi's won't allow it, so you'll have to cut and paste the URL.

Looks like you lose your frunk space with the AWD model. Still, very cool.

my problem is (and always will be with electric until it's resolved) the range - 105 miles on a full charge, wait 9 hours to fully charge and go another 105 miles.

that would mean a trip to the dragon would take 5 days to get there, and 5 days to get back... it's like going there in a covered wagon.
