And so it should. There is no comparison. The Elise is a true drivers car. The Boxster is far more refined luxurt sports car. The trouble is for Porsche that there are too many people out there where HP and 0-60 figures are the basis for their status choice. IMHO the pre-2001 Boxsters are still the best ones made. No PSM and less weight. Now if they only brought back the 904! Anyone ever compare those figues with an Elise? ...very close.
The one thing that MOST people don't get is the difference less weight makes to the "fun" factor.
I love my Boxster and I will keep it. I will still use it for tours I do with my wife. The driving experience between the two will not be comparable. I hope my Boxster doesn't get too lonely in the Garage.
