    Porsche BoxterS

    Just wanted to share a little tussle I had with a Porsche BoxterS this morning. I was headed south on the Sepulveda pass (a twisted canyon in SoCal) when this particular BoxterS came up weaving through traffic at a very fast pace. After pulling about five car lengths ahead of me, I downshifted and decided to go after him. Within half a mile of convoluted road our positions reversed. I had passed him and was about five car lengths ahead. We then hit a straight away which leads to a tunnel and ends in a stoplight. As luck would have it, the light turned red. I slowed to a stop while he pulled next to me. The funny thing was, he would not look at me even though I was meaning to acknowledge what just transpired. Anyhow, when the light turned green we go at it again. He seemed to have bogged his launch, which allowed me to gain an advantage of a couple of car lengths. By third gear, I sensed that he backed off since I started to leave him at a very fast rate. Suffice to say, I just smoked a BoxterS.

    To his credit, his car seemed to have stayed planted while my WRX was drifting (all four wheels) as we clocked 70mph+ on the turns. And, I had to resort to some left foot braking and throttle modulation (heel and toe) to beat him.

    nice kill! I would not feel confident going after any porsche (unless it is the base boxster) without a turbo upgrade of some kind. Do you hae any mods on your car?

    Sounds like a good race. I often want to show the Boxster boys a thing or two. Yeah, what are your mods?

    Thanks fellas...

    As far as mods go...stock, except for 225/45/17 rubber and tein suspension. I guess the little knowledge learned from my youth helped a bit--my rally racing uncle taught me early how to drive. I ran a few races with him many years ago.

    Anyhow, I just received all the parts I need for an upgrade. A full exhaust and reflash should done by next week.

    That's because he was too busy sitting there realizing that he just got pwn3d by a sedan that cost half what his "porsh" did.

    Good kill. I got one in the twisties east of Glenwood Springs (Glenwood Canyon). In his defense, it was raining & I know that canyon pretty well.

    It's fun to run with someone that thinks they have an easy kill. Cheers.

    The Boxster S is fast, but not all that fast- I beat on ein my GTP and I know my WRX is faster than that car.

    BTW, not to detract form your post- Good kill!

    I want to run with a Boxster S but the opportunity never presents itself.

    Jedi,

    Please explain your new avatar for (us) me. It looks very "interesting" (That's all I'll say until I find out who that is)

    Oh Yeah it is her! Well now my opinion has changed. That little girl tries too hard- I can't stand pretentiousness. Not a bad pic though.

    omg, jedi has a GTP. Okay then I guess you can tell me. I'm not unclear on this, and I know for a fact that I can beat a GTP. My cousin is getting one in a week, a 2000 I believe and he talks so much about how he's gonna murder me. I'm stock except for my Borla Catback. Anyways, he'll get owned pretty easily right?
