Bisimoto has transformed a 2000 Porsche Boxster into a pure race car. They took the well balanced chassis and striped it of as much weight as possible. The 986 has a fully stripped interior with a full cage and a hard top.

Before you think this is just a Boxster Spec race car, Bisimoto didn’t stop there. To make sure there is perfect balance the driver sits right in the middle and the pedals adjust to the driver’s size. This ensures that the corner balance is perfect. There is extensive use of carbon fiber, including the hard top modeled after a Porsche Cayman (which causes some confusion).

The Porsche Guide For Tall People

Porsche 356

I was recently approached by a coworker asking if I knew if a taller person can drive a Porsche 356 comfortably. He is about 6’4” tall and enjoys motorcycles and wants to get into sports cars. He is hoping to purchase a classic 356 coupe.

He mentioned that he wasn’t sure if such a small car would fit him. He knows that I’ve had the chance to drive all of Porsche’s modern sports car lineup and that my daily driver is an early Porsche Boxster. His opinion of the Boxster is that he definitely couldn’t fit into it, but this is all based on the outside appearance and not sitting inside.

So, can a taller driver enjoy driving a Porsche?

If you are like us then you enjoy a traditional manual transmission. Sure modern automatics are faster and are easier to use in city traffic, but the use of the third pedal adds so much to the driving experience.

Apart from the steering wheel the shifter is the most touched thing on a car with a manual gearbox. Because of this the leather or vinyl that is used can quickly look tired and in need of replacement.

If your shift boot is letting down the look of the rest of the car, then here are the steps to replace it.

Is This The Ultimate Porsche Boxster?

Bisimoto has done some insane builds. Their Honda Odyssey is perhaps their best known build. The turbocharged minivan produced over 1,000 horsepower. Needless to say they know a bit about fast builds.

If Bisimoto could make the Honda Odyssey seem cool, just think what they can do with a decent starting vehicle. Take the 986 generation Porsche Boxster. It is a sports car that already has wonderful balance and a chassis that can take plenty of power, even if it has been held back to keep it from stepping on its big brother’s toes.

Things People Say To Porsche Boxster Owners

By   May 29, 2018

Porsche Boxster

Porsche Boxster

The Porsche Boxster is a well balanced mid-engined sports car. It now sits just above the 718 Cayman in the model lineup, but was held back as the entry level vehicle for much of its production. The seductive lines of the roadster harken back to the legendary 550 Spyder and the 718 RSK Spyder that followed it.

The Boxster incorporates styling that looks like a Porsche with its arched fenders and low ride. The earliest 986 generation cars had a front end that looked exactly like the 996 generation 911, except for the bumper styling.
