    well, as long as they like the Boxster the most, we cant get enough of that article

    Re: [Magazine Scan] Autocar: New Boxster vs. SLK vs. Z4

    I agree with the styling, they could have taken a little bit more risk. I've parked my 03 Boxster S next to the 987 S and you have to really look twice to see the difference. I like the 986 interior better, but the quality of the 987s is a big improvement.

    I drove the 987 s and it felt less powerfull than my "S" . Dealer said it takes 30k km to get the full power out of an engine (mine has 36k km).

    Really like the Sport Chrono, felt like PSM was switched off!

    Conclusion: for me not enough incentive to trade in my old "S". Would like to see a bit more HP, maybe the Coupe...

    Zürich, sounds kinda great to me
    I have read so many places that the 987 was a giant leap forward compared to the 986.
    Almost felt like I was driving a discount sportscar
    Whats the most noticable difference?
    Is the ride softer, better, firmer...what?
    I know the visual differences are minute except for the interior - I never really liked the interior of the 986. The shapes are too strange for my eyes, but other than that?


    Re: [Magazine Scan] Autocar: New Boxster vs. SLK vs. Z4

    DrPhil, the ride is compareble in normal PASM mode (to my standard S suspension) but extremely hard in sport mode. Probably the biggest step forward is in handeling. Car felt very secure and save even though the road was wet and temp was around freezing. Again all relatively small steps imho.
    Before the 260hp S I had a 204HP Boxster, now that was a giant step

    Re: [Magazine Scan] Autocar: New Boxster vs. SLK vs. Z4

    Zürich, ok-I guess my sports suspension is a bit harder then...cuz that seems very very hard on city asphalt
    Seems we have the same car almost. What color and specs is yours?

    Re: [Magazine Scan] Autocar: New Boxster vs. SLK vs. Z4

    Black/Black, full leather, sport seats, small carbon pack, 18" carera wheels (+ 17" for winter)
