First, wanting to do a bit of light-to-light fun doesn't make someone a D-bag. So, OP, pull the stick out of yer bottom.
Second, Boxsters, especially the newest ones, are serious machines. And they are also built much better, and from nicer materials. And if you really want the best Porsche, the current star in the line-up is the Cayman S. Basically a coupe Boxster. Does 0-60 in 4.1 seconds.
Don't rag on Porsches, or other performance cars. You may like your Mustang, but there are many other great cars out there. This "my car is better because it's a _____________" is stupid crapola. I give Porsches, Corvettes, Audis, anything performance oriented a "thumbs up" when I see them. Including older cars that people have worked on.
my boss just bought the a new 911 S and it's already been in the shop 2 times in 2 months...POS to pay that much IMO.
He had a 911 back in 2002 and it was also a POS. Said he'd never own another one...strange he does.
