    Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Ok, last year I had itchy feet and wanted to change car but now I've gotten my Boxster back, why did I ever feel the need to change to a 911.

    Now the 911 is a fantastic car and having had the privilege to drive a 997 C2, 996 C4, C4S, C2 and most recently a 996 GT3, getting back into the Boxster was always a joy!

    I know my 2.7 could do with a little more grunt, but aside from moving to a 3.4, I couldn't wish for any more from a car.

    Every day when I sit behind that little Porsche badge on my perfectly sized Sports Steering Wheel, it reminds me of all the history behind the marque and how each Porsche has that little bit of Stuttgart in it, and every bit a "proper" Porsche.

    So, maybe this is a little bit of a sentimental post but I just wanted to share how much I love my Boxster




    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?


    THANKS Steve for sharing these sentiments with us

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Did you keep the 996 GT3 or did you swap it back?

    Hope you're happy either way!

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    I swapped it back - post on it in the 996 board!

    Very happy with my Box

    Just watch out - the exhaust gets HOT!

    (Yes I am that predictable!)

    Amazing photo by the way. As usual!

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Its a toy, I am in love with her too!!!!

    Freak painted wheels in black look a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!!!

    But I am afraid to say, that Boxster S's have more high fuel consumptions than 997's!!!!, at least 2007 models with tiptronic S , ours is now ALWAYS IN 14.5l/100km, THAT IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING!!!

    but I love her

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    It is a love thing reallu

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    I agree... it is love, actually

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Glad to see you are back in love with the 987 Steve - they have a tendency to get to the heart !

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Gorgeous pics guys. I can feel the love!

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Keep the fire burning, guys - it's love for sure

    Great love-letter postcard, Steve
    Just skipped the idea of using it for my wife's upcoming birthday - she might misunderstand it

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Have to be honest and say I couldn't afford a new 911 even if I did want one (well I could but I'd sooner keep both Kidneys), but I'm still not sure quite why anyone needs more than a Boxster.

    OK some people will buy one simply because they want one and can which is fair enough, and some people will track them which is fair enough, but when you get down to how you can actually drive on the majority of UK roads in almost any moderately quick car the driver will be the limit rather than the car.

    That said, I'm determined not to try a Boxster S or a 997 of any sort just in case it does make me like my 2.7 987 any less

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    The Box is just the better handling car in my view, no comparison. If only Porsche would do a Boxster RS......

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Because it's a great car. It truly is a wonderful balance of speed, handling, braking, style, and sound. And for those of us in the right spots, year round top down cruising is great.

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    It just feels special all the time and at any speed.

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    Cobalt.... Hmmm. Maybe that will be the next Box colour for me....

    Re: Why do I love my Boxster so much?

    I'm getting out the box this weekend, to snap some pics for this thread!!!, you guys forced me to do that!!!

    She is getting a wash !!!!

    I too love her!!!!
