Secret Squirrel Shit
Was looking at Boxsters locally and was wondering how reliable the cars are. Anything bad about say the 98-02s?
The power output is definitely down in comparison to a stock or especially a BPU Supra.
To make up for the lack of power, you get a lighter weight, better handling vehicle. I guess it depends on what you're looking for. I once read a very apt quote that was essentially, "A 911 is an all around athlete, not a weight lifter." The Supra is a weight lifter.
My long term plan involves developing a custom turbo kit for the car so that should take care of any concerns about power. In the meantime, I'm still quicker than 99% of vehicles on the road....just not Supras
I guess I'm getting a bit old, but I was also getting a little tired of the direction of young import crowd. It moves up the food chain a bit....now instead of 16 year old boys admiring your car, everyone admires your car
From what i've understood it is going to be 415hp out of a 3.8L flat 6. And it is pulling out 118hp/L? I'm hoping the new RS can beat the S2000 record of 120hp/LSteve Theodore said:Thanks for replying to the thread Shawn. I love Porsches myself, and it's always nice to hear from those who have moved and and are enjoying other fine cars! The pursuit of straightline speed is indeed not the only motivating force to own a specific car.
BTW...have you read up on the new 911 (997) GT3? My lord...what a great car! And, they're going to have a GT3 RS model as well in time!
