I love Porsche. I love the history, the pedigree, the quality of the cars, the dynamics, and the absolute driver's machine
that some of their cars are. A Boxster S is quite simply one of the best road cars I've ever had the pleasure of putting around Mondello. Utterly balanced and composed, superb grunt, pedal setup so good that I had no problem H/T into Honda on lap 1.
Some of the lesser models are bland, like all car manufacturers. Lets not kid ourselves, a 156 1.8 isn't a GTA, a 316i isn't an M3 and a Carrera4 isn't a Turbo. But if I'm ever in a position to buy and run a Porsche I like then certainly, there's nothing in the Alfa stable that could tempt me to stay. The 964, 993 and 997 and truly beautiful cars. RS, Turbo, GT2, GT3, GT3RS ...
I was tempted by Boxsters recently while car hunting, but the S was outside what I was willing to spend unfortunately.
