    [is because they can't afford a 911]

    I think so. I've driven a Boxster S and it was pretty impressive though...

    At my dealership, I saw 2 middle age like late 30s guys who probably made about 80k a year, looking at a 350z vert and talking about a boxster.

    They are just looking for image, and have no clue about actual fast cars. For those select few, the boxster still isnt that bad though.

    Yeah, that and the fact that it's better than anything else in its class. I'm assuming you're saying this because you watched the Top Gear vid. Did you also notice that they said the Boxster is what the 911 used to be: lightweight, nimble, balanced. It has all of the magic of a 911 without driving like a rear-engined car. What's not to like?

    I'm not saying it's a bad car... I'm just saying that the people who buy it would rather have a 911

    I'll bet at least 50% of the damn women I see driving them don't care. They bought it because it looks cute, just like the women who buy S2000's, then sell them 3 months later because the ride is too rough.

    The problem is that, it is not better than "everything" in it's class.

    only good boxter is the boxter S, and the only time the boxter S is good is when its on a race track with lots of curves :cool:

    not really comparing it to anything. I just thought it handled nicely and the engine note was awesome. IMO the S2000 offers a more visceral driving experience.
