Okay man, maybe it depends on your definition of a D-Bag, but someone who decides to street race in the middle of a city at night is not only saying they don't care about their own safety, or the safety of the people they are racing, they also don't give a rats ass about anybody else on the road or on the sidewalk, all because they want to engage in a juvenile **** measuring contest.

Street racing is stupid. Period. Doesn't matter if you are 15 or 60 years old, it is stupid.

And even if you are a pretentious and ignorant nihilist who in actual fact does not care about human life, you also have to choose to forget about the $10,000 fine, car seizure and license suspension that will result if you are observed street racing by the police here in Ontario.

I enjoy all performance oriented cars and respect people who drive them. I don't rag on Porsches, Mercs, Audis, etc. I don't think my Mustang is the ultimate performance car. But when you are revving your engine at a stoplight and scowling at me like Fifty Cent in a G-Unit music video that will negate any respect I may have had for you in the first place.

Also, please show me where a new Boxster is clocked at 4.1 seconds to 60 in stock form.

Boxster GTS - All Boxster Models - Models - Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG

5.0s to 60 with the manual, 4.9 with the PDK.

Porsche Boxster S - Porsche Canada

5.1s to 60 with the manual, 5.0 with the PDK

Porsche Boxster - Porsche Canada

5.8s to 60 with the manual, 5.7 with the PDK.

Please note that this is from the Porsche website. Don't you think that if Porsche could get away with claiming 4.1s to 60 they would? Those listed numbers are already inflated, just like any other manufacturer numbers are.
Check C&D magazine 2014 Cayman S. 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. The Boxster is probably not very far behind. Porsche has a habit of being very conservative with their performance numbers. Plus, they can't show that the Cayman is a virtual performance match for a 911, at a much lower price.

As far as the rest of your rant, most of us live in the U.S., not a socialist country. So you can dispense with your diatribe, and step down from the pedestal of morality you have yourself so high up on.
