I can't tell from your post, but it seems like most of your comparison data (apart from the Japanese thing) is from different tests not necessarily apples to apples. For instance...

* perhaps the mags haven't updated their road tests with a 3.4L 987S (07 model) but the N Loop lap was a 3.4?
* perhaps the Boxster S lap and Cayman S lap were not equally equipped?
eg: both PASM? both same driver? both same conditions? both same tires?

The Boxster S should have a lower center of gravity and that might contribute. And the new 3.4 should be as fast (acceleration) as the Cayman S.

BTW, you can download SW which enables you to grab videos from youtube and keep as mpgs.
