If you have watch any of Doug DeMuro’s videos, you probably know that he loves cars with quirks. One thing he really likes is when a car has no glove compartment. The reason for this is that car manufacturers get really creative.

The earliest cars aren’t as fast as the newer Boxsters, although they weren’t slow for their day. Multiple publications managed to launch an early 986 from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat and flat out it could hit a top speed of 149 mph.

Why I Bought A Porsche Instead Of A Ferrari

Not all that long ago for about $30,000 you could purchase a Ferrari 308 GTS / GTB. The same car in decent condition is now worth over $100,000 (nicer cars are often getting over $150,000). The 308 is a wonderful vintage Italian sports car, but maintenance costs (especially the engine out belt changes that need to be completed every few years) quickly add up. This makes it strictly a weekend driver.

You just can’t drive a Ferrari every day. There are various reasons for this and it is what led me to choose a Porsche over a Ferrari.

For many of us a car is a utilitarian machine. It’s all about getting from point a to point b while hauling our things. But, if you are thinking that way you may be missing something huge.

Why Is A Honda S2000 More Expensive Than A Porsche Boxster?

By   March 14, 2018

The Honda S2000 has a cult following. People who own the cars just enjoy them and most don’t want to ever sell them. The fact that through it’s production run only 66,547 were sent to the United States helps make it a bit more special than most other cars made by Japanese manufacturers.

Finding an affordable Honda S2000 is quite a task. A quick search found that most decent examples cost around $25,000 dollars. If you go for a higher mileage example of an early model prices go down as low as $15,000.

But is there another sports car that is better and costs less?

Project Porsche Boxster R Continues Weight Reduction

By   March 12, 2018

Project Porsche Boxster R

Project Porsche Boxster R

It has been a little while since we’ve updated you on our current project that we are calling Project Porsche Boxster R. The idea is to create the ultimate Boxster street car. To accomplish this we are looking to make a few improvements to what is already a good car.

First we will work on making it lighter. Weight reduction plays a huge part in performance as it will improve the power-to-weight ratio. The early 986 Boxster is already fairly light, but even just 100 lbs. of weight loss will result in the same power-to-weight ratio as the Series 1 Lotus Elise. That version of the Elise could launch from 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds. By comparison the stock early 986 can hit 60 mph from a standing start in 6 seconds flat according to test by both Road and Track and Motor Trend.
