    987.2 Boxster S PDK vs. 997.1 Carrera S Cabrio

    Don't know if this was posted before, but anyway.

    I was a bit surprised on the outcome, although not as surprised as the 911 driver who could not believe his eyes Smiley Beaten by a Boxster. Poor guy.

    Re: 987.2 Boxster S PDK vs. 997.1 Carrera S Cabrio

    The dialog is epic 

    911 driver when then Boxster pulls away the first time: "What the f'k has he done with that one?!"

    Later at the starting line...

    Boxster: "It is original"

    911: "And it goes like that?"

    Boxster: Nodding

    911: "Yeeeees..."

    Window closing...

    911: "He must be lying"

    PDK is a huge advantage in the lower speed range below 160-200 kph.

    Then, the 997 Mk I may have had Tiptronic and even if not, it had 355 horses only. Take the lower weight of the Boxster S and...well...no real surprise here. Smiley

    Re: 987.2 Boxster S PDK vs. 997.1 Carrera S Cabrio

    It does not sound like Tiptronic, but I am not an expert on torque converting automatic transmissions. Tried to avoid them like the plague 

    Yes, looking at the weight versus power for both cars it comes out at 4.4 kg/hp for the 911 and 4.3 kg/hp for the Boxster (not taking into account any vehicle specific options). The Boxster does not carry a passenger and has PDK. So knowing all that, maybe no real surprise.

     Unfortunatly PDK does give a real performance advantage

    Re: 987.2 Boxster S PDK vs. 997.1 Carrera S Cabrio

    I am amazed at the difference in performance that the new DFI engine combined with PDK makes over and above our last much loved manual 3.4 Boxster S - much more than the on paper 25 bhp uplift would indicate!

     Looks like the Boxster finally got the power that it deserves. This makes it a nice stealthy sportscar.

    It is Swedish and it is even more funny when you understand it. The disappointment, close to shock-level, in the 911 driver's voice is priceless.

    Re: 987.2 Boxster S PDK vs. 997.1 Carrera S Cabrio

    Ahhh, ok... maybe I need to take a closer listen, as Swedish is supposed to sound close to Dutch... I might be able to understand some of it, together with your translation.

    Thanks for the help mate!

    Definitely but unfortunately it still has this "girlie Porsche" reputation over here in Germany.

    I would love to own a grey black (GT3 RS special color) Boxster S with PDK. I doubt that someone could mistaken such a car for a "girlie" car. Smiley

    Us poor 987 owners can't win - Boxster is a girlie car (here in the UK the Mercedes SLK is more so) and Cayman is seen as a 911 wannebe Smiley Just as well "image perception" doesn't bother me or we'd only take our Cayman out at night when no one could see us Smiley

    If you can live with this false perception, don't worry about it.

    I would however make my 987 color choice wisely, flashy colors aren't really helpful to overcome certain prejudices. Smiley Avoiding colors like Guards Red, Speed Yellow, Aqua Blue, Amethyst Metallic, Cream White and maybe Macademia Metallic is a good start. Unless of course you have breasts. Smiley

    Funny clip, thanks for posting.

    Aqua rocks!   Us guys with cojones bigger than Charlie Sheen can order a Boxster or Cayman in any shade of blue!

    Unfortunately, there is some girlie-perception in the States too. I  took some heat for my 987S with several non-Porsche friends asking with a tone of total disbelief  "why didn't you get a 911?"  I tried to explain how it's lighter, better balanced, more agile, has 2 trunks instead of tough to use back seats and costs about the same for Porsche to build. They always thought I was lying about everything except the trunk.
