    Re: 500hp Boxster S

    LoL - a poor man's Porsche for 183,000 US (new) / 90,000 US (used)
    Would be interesting to see some performance data of this monster

    Re: 500hp Boxster S

    They reviewed this car a few months ago in the Motor magazine here in Australia. Can't put my hands on it now but I remember being in awe over it.

    Some specs from the sale advertisement are:
    --Twin Turbo Boxster S --
    - 3.6L twin turbo
    - 375 kw
    - 600 Nm
    - 0 to 100 = 3.8 sec.

    If you get a chance to get your hands on the magazine's article I would appreciate if you could post some key findings over here (primarily regarding handling/traction).
    From other reviews about heavily modded Boxsters I remember that of course it's easy to improve straightline performance transplanting a bigger engine but that it's way more difficult to improve laptimes on the track (handling/traction).
    So the question is how such a monster Boxster can be compared to a Carrera with similar hp (knowing that the Carrera has the edge in terms of traction, whereas the midengined Boxster has some inherent handling advantages).
    Anyway, the claimed 0-100 time is in 997 TT-land
    The fact that the car has only 5,200 km on the odometer after 4 years raises some questions regarding reliabilty though
