Another beautiful day at Sebring, getting my car dialed in runnind
virtually stock Boxster S and keeping up with turbos, tons of fun , had a little incident on the
first hot lap with a spin. too much throttle too soon.
Buying a Cheap Porsche Boxster...What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
In this Video we profile an owner that just bought his 1999 Porsche Boxster
for $7,000. This is the owners 5th Boxster and 9th Porsche he has owned.
The Boxster's stats are close to that of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FRS, but
it has more torque from it's flat 6 engine than the FRS/BRZ has from it's
flat 4. Is the Boxster a bargain or a ticking time bomb?
Porsche Boxster S 987 3.8 X51 TTP 400ps
Porsche Boxster S 987 3.8 X51, modified by TTP, 400ps.
GT3 control arms front and rear, every bit from Tarrett engineering, GT2
brakes front and rear, Quaife LsD, JiC suspencion, GT2 antisway bars, TTP
scavenge pump system (very important part), using worn rear Michelin slicks
27/68/18 and worn matador front 24/64/18.
Megara circuit : 1.04.6
Had a lot of understeer due to different compound front and rear tires (did
not have time to find better combination before the trackday), but still
the car made very good lap times, being very steady with all times in
between 1.04.6 to 1.05.5sec
Next time I will use new Michelins, they seem to be the best choice.
Nice sound isn't it?
2015 Porsche 918 Spyder First Test: Fastest 0-60 Time Ever? Plus Porsche 959! - Ignition Ep. 109
On this week's Ignition, Carlos Lago has a second go at Porsche's 918
hypercar. The goal: to run the 918 through the full gauntlet of MT's
instrumented testing, including 0-60, quarter mile, braking, figure 8, and
a blistering real-time hot lap around Big Willow race track with pro driver
Randy Pobst. Carlos also gets a rare chance to experience the 918's
ancestor, the Porsche 959. The 959 was a remarkable piece of automobile
history that was decades ahead of its time with much of it's technology
only appearing in common vehicles within the last ten years or so. The 918
attempts something very similar, featuring very advanced technology,
including a naturally aspirated V8 that works with a seamlessly integrated
electric motor to provide extra Boost. Can Porsche's new hypercar achieve the
same effect that its predecessor did? Only time will tell, but stay tuned
for the record-breaking review.
Watch our original first drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder here:
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Porsche Boxster Cup Racing Oktoberfast
This video of Porsche Boxster Cup Race Cars was taken at the Hallett Race
Track during Oktoberfast in October 6, 2012. These Porsche Boxsters sounded
amazing as they raced on the track. We hope you like this Porsche Boxster
racing video and make sure to click the thumbs up if you enjoy it!
Focus RS500 vs Boxster on the track - Auto Express
Both cost around £35,000, one is a rear-wheel drive sports car the other a
hot hatch, but which is fastest?
If you have £35,000 to spend on a performance car you've got some tough
decisions to make. The Porsche Boxster and Ford Focus RS500 are both
scintillating cars to drive, but go about putting their performance on the
road in completely different ways. We wanted to find out which was quickest
over a short, twisty course in conditions typical of a UK road.
