hi, just a thoughtful suggestion, don't waste your hard earned money on a PORSCHE boxster, or worse yet, boxster S model; get the new M roadster, it is much faster than boxster and S, and even as fast or faster than Carrera.. BMW claims 0-60 in 5.0 sec, Motor Trend claims 4.5 sec, and R&T claims 4.7 quarter mile is about 13.2, not bad for a car that is in the mid 40's, huh? plus it sounds better, the boxster sounds like a small shop vac. and if you still want a porsche, then get a real porsche, the 911 C4 or TT

Porsche is Porsche, BMW is BMW. Buying a Boxter is not waste of money.

As a 330ci owner, if I have enough money for M3 or boxter S, I will buy M3 over boxter S, however that doesn't mean boxter is worse than M3. They are two different cars. For some people, performance data is very important, however some people doesn't car.

Buying a 996 (carrera) is different issue. Carrera is exotic car, but not M3. M3 is just sport coupe with lots of hp and very fast. So If you have money 996 is the best choice over M3 or boxter, however if you don't have that money buy what you like.

Test drove Boxster S. I didn't feel that this car is particularly fast, but it was one real nice sports car. Engine sound is so sweet from rear and controls are all firm. And the response was superb. Nobody gives any [censored] on numbers.
Your claim just sounds like 550 spider is not a real Porsche.

P.S. Boxster has some body flex, I felt.. Nonethelss fantastic car.

and it has the nicest exhaust/engine note i have EVER heard. for this reason i am seriously considering porsche as my next neighbor switched from his 993 to '01 M3 because he needed to transport his children around. so everyone has their priorities/tastes. i personally prefer the looks of the e36 to a boxster, but I know the boxster is much funner to drive. taste is just a personal opinion. i can already hear the E36 M3 OR 993 calling my name(won't be for a few years though :)don't flame, you sound like a fool. go to bed
