That looks great unfortunately it still is no 911. You can see they've redeveloped the Boxster to cater for those who couldn't see past it's effeminate appearance and poor-mans 911 statuesque?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
I've heard it will retail for ?45-50k once specced with leather and options which is in the price bracket of the E90 M3 and B7 RS4.
For ?50k, I personally would buy a used 996 Turbo
It looks great.
Don't care if it's a poor man's Porsche (plenty of poverty stricken people about with over ?40k to spend on a car!), it's looks great, will handle brilliantly, has the engine in the right place and will be very well made.
Best way to buy a porker is not to go too daft on the options. A Boxster s with bigger wheels a cruise /bose comes out about 40k, form a 38500 list. I've seen guys spec em up to 50k, and lose a packet when they trade them in.
Get ac on it (if not stock) big rims and a few cheap gadgets and job will be a good un!!
