    BOXTER V's GSi

    Drove home from work today and found myself trying to overtake a truck! whilst waiting for the right moment a Porche Boxter appeared from out of the blue - i could see his lights he was that close! anyway, i waited for the moment and overtook! its a national speed limit road so obviously i excellerated pretty quick, however to my amusement the boxter that was chasing me just couldnt keep up, at first I really thought he was just toying with me - although he kept gaining on me through the gears, he really couldnt overtake!! i was overtackable on many occasions but he was never there to do so! perhaps if we had been on the motorway - he would have found it easier, but i could even see him shakin his head the looser!!!! this went on or about 15min so i was well chuffed! must admit, i pushed the car like ive never done so before, red lined it but didnt realise i was doing so! - i left the poor thing to simmer down for about 10 min when I got in and i was a bit shaky!! not proud of driving like that on uk roads but this guy sucked!!!! and was beaten by an ASTRA!

    Yeah they aint all that, remember when they first came out, a friend chased one in a fiesta turbo and the boxter wasnt getting away!

    [quote] the Boxster has undergone a number of revisions since, upping its power from 204bhp to 220bhp in 1997 by the simple expedient of giving it a bigger engine 2.7-litres as opposed to 2.5.

    They also introduced the range-topping S derivative with its 252bhp 3.2-litre engine. A subsequent revision saw the base models engine given a mild tune, lifting peak power to 228bhp,[/img]

    and weighs between 1300-1400kg

    Show the porker a corner though....

    Still I can see the satisfaction in beating a toss pot in a porker like that!

    it would of been a early or a cheap boxster i would say as the boxsterS is a nice fast small car
    it would have you on the brakes an bends but the astra would pull away from the very early or cheap ones

    Boxster S is a sub 6 car. Similar weight to a GSi too IIRC. Both around the 1300kg mark.
