Porsche Boxster Spec Racers are Spec classified cars tuned for track performance. The rules of the class limit modifications in order to keep the cars performing similarly. The Boxster Spec is already embraced and endorsed by the Porsche Owner's Club in Southern California and is under consideration by PCA, PRC and NASA.

Thanks Chris
 
It appears to me that older Boxsters are modified for spec racing.

"For the sake of availability and cost, limiting the series to early 2.5 cars (and 2.7s with weight penalties) probably makes the most sense."

yes, that's the whole idea of Boxster spec racing:
You take the old 2.5L cars which you can get really cheap, strip all the weight off it, have a great power/weight ratio and have tons of fun with an affordable P-racecar :D

and having just a Boxster for spec racing

and I also like is the color schemes!

I was thinking the same about my color. I would add stripes, paint the wheels, not sure of what color though?
Does anyone know when the next "Boxster Spec Race" would be here in Northern California? Laguna Seca for one? I want to go. :cool:

I like this license plate.
