    Boxster S, but only the new 987 gen.

    If it was a 986 gen, I'd take the M Roadster, but only in the S54 engine.

    It's the slowest of the three. Why?

    I'd probably get this too, even if I tend to lean to a front-engine design philosophy.

    Boxster S.

    I'd take the Elise as a weekend toy though.

    When did the Elise become a flamer car?

    It's VERY well balanced and a blast to drive. The larger engine/brakes really help and I like the mid-engine setup.

    I give you respect for spelling "boxster" correctly. :bowdown:

    Honestly, I can't stand the new BMW designs for the most part, but that's just me.

    I'm not sure if the M can keep up with the 911 either. The Boxster S can hold its own quite well against it :o

    That's what I like most about it. Compared to the Miata that we have now, it is much, much better.

    I didn't get to drive the Elise, because the battery was dead, but I question whether or not I could drive the car because of the location of the steering wheel.

    if you put the Cayman in the list, it'd be tough to choose between that & an Elise. But, if you put the Cayman in there, then you could shoot for the Exige S, and then it wouldn't be a problem to choose.

    The Boxster is too much of a "milf car" ... and i DD'd my elise quite a bit, and it didn't bother me in the slightest. the attention the car gets can get pretty annoying, though.

    elise for me.
