Drag Race: Lotus Elise S vs Nissan 370Z Nismo vs Porsche Boxster vs Toyota GT86 vs Audi TT
When it comes to buying a sports car in 2014, there really is a huge level
of choice. Whether you're after a comfortable four-seater that you can use
every day, or more of a hardcore stripped-out racer, there's plenty of
choice in the marketplace.
At the more affordable end of the market there's Audi's TT and Toyota's
GT86 -- two practical coupes that are available for around £25,000.
Stepping up in price are the Porsche Boxster and Nissan 370Z Nismo, a pair
of six-cylinder two-seaters that are as powerful as they look.
Finally, there's the Lotus Elise S Club Racer, a totally no-nonsense
lightweight sports car with a comparatively tiny engine, but impressive
But which is quickest in a straight line? The powerful Porsche, the
lightweight Lotus, or the all-conquering Audi? There's only one way to find
out -- a drag race at Rockingham Motor Speedway.

2012 BRSCC Logson Group Porsche, Meeting 1, Oulton Park
The winter break is over....the 2012 Logson Group Porsche Championship
finally kicks into action this weekend (Saturday 31st March) at the
challenging Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire!
With a new Boxster class, some new faces throughout the grid, some
established names looking to make their mark in 2012, and the absence of
the 2011 Champion Dave Clark, this year's Championship promises to be the
most hotly contested yet.
Now in its third year as a multi-class series, it is well established on
the national motorsport calendar and for the first time enjoys the support
of the LOGSON GROUP as its title sponsor. LOGSON GROUP's MD Ian Loggie did
a couple of guest drives in the Boxster class in 2011 and he liked it so
much he bought the Championship! Welcome on board Ian, and we wish you
every success in this year's events.
In the 'Race Spec Boxster' class Richard Styrin looks on paper to be the
driver to beat....but beware the newcomers! Richard Sykes has a brand new
987 model Boxster and if his results during guest appearances last year are
anything to go by, we should expect the sparks to fly today. Former GT Cup
class Champion Tom Andrew looks set to enter the Boxster Championship in
style, and was putting in some impressive times at the open test session at
Oulton two weeks ago......as was long term Porsche Championship protagonist
Gerry Taylor, heading up the Taylors Foundry 'Boxster Boys' team. As one
member of the TF team, Adam Croft will be racing the ex-Clark Boxster this
year; some big shoes to fill for 2011's Porsche 924 runner up!
Last year's 924 Champion Steve Brown, along with Steve Potts, are the first
two drivers to build cars to meet the spec for the new 2012 'Production
Boxster' class. The Productions are an unknown quantity and it will be
interesting to see how they compare against the two established classes.
The venerable Porsche 924's are out in force and still major players in the
Championship, but which drivers are going to fill the shoes of Messers
Brown, Croft and Piesinger this year? With the latter being transferred
back to Austria, the Championship is wide open. Maybe we will see our first
female champ in the form of Rebecca Jackson who made significant progress
towards the end of 2011. But the smart money would be on Alastair Kirkham,
Sean Siddall and possibly new-boy David Hornsey sharing the spoils at round
one.....but unknowns in the shape of Karl Rossin and returnee Richard Jones
might just be the spoilers in that equation!
All the ingredients are in place for it to be another great season! Here's
wishing all the competitors good luck and a safe passage through the LOGSON
GROUP 2012 PORSCHE CHAMPIONSHIP.
Porsche Boxster: The Best Car Porsche Makes? - XCAR
The Porsche Boxster has, unfairly, been referred to as the Porsche you buy
if you can't afford a 911. It used to have doors off of a 911, headlights
from its bigger, numberier brother too. It was a bit of a Frankencar.
There were some pretty major differences, though: size, price, number of
seats, engine size and (most importantly) engine position. It's the
mid-engine that makes it so special. It gives a Boxster amazing balance,
something the 911 simply doesn't have.
Anyway, the 981 generation Boxster is the first to have doors all of its
own which means Porsche is taking the Boxster even more seriously as a
model in its own right. It's lighter than ever, too, despite the fact that
it's really rather large. I'm by no means a large chap, but the Boxster
dwarfs me -- I can't imagine what'd happen when a chap looks 'big' in it;
he'd have to be the size of a small maisonette.
Balance is the Boxster's party piece. Its weight distribution gives you so
much confidence to hurl it around a little that you can get carried away.
It feels so planted that I'm pretty sure that physics has simply skipped
over the Boxster. Its steering is the same electromechanical system you'll
find in the 911. This is no bad thing. Y'see, while purists complain that
it's not as precise as the old cars', I'm 99% certain that most people
simply won't notice there's been a change. The only reason they're
complaining is because someone else has, based on a race driver/handy
wheelman's opinion, said it wasn't quite as good as the older version.
The system works wonderfully. It still feels great, you still know which
way you're pointed and where the car is. Porsche had to make the switch
from hydro to electric to keep MPG figures high and CO2 emissions low. The
right call was made and I'm pretty sure in five years no one will really
care about it.
Under the Boxster S', erm, body sits a 315bhp 3.4-litre flat six. It does
two things very well -- 1) go quickly 2) make glorious noise. You'll see
just how in the video.
One final point on the Boxster, and it's about its looks. The rear deck
reminds me of ice cream. No idea why. It just does.
Porsche Boxster S
Engine: 3.4-litre Flat Six
Torque: 265lb ft
Top speed: 173mph
