Now that's proper. Want one.
Why does Porsche always deprive the Boxter / Cayman?
Boxter S | Carrera
315 PS | 350 PS
@ 6.700 RPM | @ 7.400 RPM
360 Nm | 390 Nm
@ 4.500-5.800 RPM | @ 5.600 RPM
6 MT | 7 MT
STUNNING! Can't believe I'm saying that about a Boxster! Taking out the Convertible aspect indeed shows that the Cayman could be the big surprise and catch.
As crazy as it is to say, this easily holds its own alongside the 911.
If we thought Porsche was king before, they're stronger than ever right now. I'll even let the Cayenne slide (although the new one is nice, but extremely dull/non-exotic, which is actually welcome considering the first one tried to be more, but fumbled badly). Hopefully the new upcoming dilution-models don't bring them down.
This is the 3rd car I aspire to most from a realistically attainable point-of-view. I could care less for the hairdresser connotations - this is a sports car for all of my needs. I'll take the manual of course.
Oh no! The front blinkers and side repeaters are not LED! :eusa_doh:
^^ If I'm buying one it will probably look exactly like that
I don't like "gold" cars... but this Porsche looks fantastic in this color and the interior combo is great :icondrool
100 kg weight reduction - impressive.
Wow, I absolutely love it. The Boxster finally sheds the poor mans Porsche image for me. I absolutely love it.
It is fantastic.. easily the best looking and probably driving car of its class..
Love it all around..
Like i wrote in the other thread..the front gives me hints of the 918:
How do you make a light car even lighter? How do you make a fast car even faster? How do you make both of those happen at the same time?
Ask Porsche. Nice job, Porsche.
Simply outstanding! The design of this car is far better than I expected, more muscular, less curvy, better balanced. Stunning interior! We were going to trade the current Boxster on a new Cayenne, but this beauty is going to make that a tough decision to make! So pleased they didn't drop the displacement of the S to 3.2 litres as rumoured..
Arguably one of the best driver's car in the world dollar for dollar looks to have gotten even more formidable. Love it!
It looks fantastic. And I'm not a fan of cloth roofs! Any of the current owners know if heat loss/isolation during winter is a concern?
Jiminy Cricket!This just looks sooo good.
Not that 310 hp is anything to sneeze at, but I was hoping it'd be around 325-330 hp, but then I guess it'd be stepping on its big brother's toes.
Those are Porsche's numbers. Only a Dyno can tell us how much it's truly making. Not sure if Porsche is conservative with numbers like MB and BMW are.
It is the same engine as in the Carrera, but detuned to 315 PS. There should be quite an easy way to get to power figures of the Carrera. The reason is lower revs.
You can say that again Marcus. It's like a first year's university student's claim to independence from parents - off to a country abroad, off goes the jeans and sweatshirt and on goes a pair of leggings and an A&F tank top. The Boxster is finally an adult. Buyers can now proudly say that they bought a Boxster because it's a Boxster and not because it's "that other cheaper Porsche, that sort of looks like a 911." Given the tear shedding price of a Boxster design independance is important. Buyers want the car to feel special and look special.
Now the Boxster has come of age as the middle-class' man's supercar that is a crossbreed of the 360 Moderna and Porsche 918. It's a smackingly eye catchy car. I'm glad Porsche got the memo, probably from Audi. They have a phenomenal job with the Audi TT which is technically not an extraordinary car by the TT-S and TT-RS are mouthwatering hot.
BMW 135i: £31,785
Audi TT-S: £34,645
BMW Z4: £39,450
BMW M3: £45,000
Boxster S: £45,384
From my POV the premium price is justified by the chassi which is even superior to that of the 911 and many other more expensive car.
