    Re: which is most fun?

    Having covered thousands of miles in all of the current range I think that the 2.7 Boxster is seriously underated. As Pink Panther said earlier, you can really ring its engine out and use the full power band in more gears. In the other cars, you do run out of road sometimes. My local OPC usually offers, a Boxster 2.7 / Cayman S / Carrera S to its customers when their cars are in for a service. I only request the 2.7 Boxster. I should have a 430 arriving in two weeks time and I think I will sell the 997 and get a Boxster (probably get the 3.4 - just because) but the 2.7 is a fine piece of kit!

    @Porsche-Jeck: hope you've been keeping count of the number of times you've been round the Nordschleiffe as a driver and as a passenger

    The wifey takes care of the "sin book" (tell me, how many laps did you torture our poor Boxey today ?) and in our internet era it's hard to get away with telling nonsense. She just surfs the websites of the Ring-photographers: the more pics she finds the more laps I must have done

    On another note, I'm still impressed how good the Sealgrey looks even after weeks of not washing the car - the car really needs some beauty care after weeks of bad weather, but it doesn't look that filthy on the pics of the Ring-photographers (maybe they PS the pics ).

    Here is the most recent example - maybe OT, but finally this thread is about having fun in a Porsche

    Also it may serve as a reminder, where I want to meet up with you next season

    Re: which is most fun?

    it all comes down to how much can you squeeze out of the car, and how far can you push it to its limits... and THAT has to do with your driving skills

    the 911 is the most difficult to drive, and least forgiving... but should be well-appreciated after a few PDEs
