Someone sound the bull**** alarm
boxster 201 hp 2800 lbs
passat 190 hp 3400 lbs...
This is not possible if he was putting forth any effort at all. Come on
The boxster isn't that quick (not the old one) but let's be realistic when a car weighs more it takes longer to accelerate it's all about power to weight ratios. Unless you're an idiot driver at the low horsepower of a stock boxster or WRX you really dont need AWD to get a good launch. AWD drive trains have more losses in the transmission too. 10 hp doesn't make up for 300 more lbs.
