Official Porsche promo video:

And I have to say I couldn't agree any more with it

doubt you will ever see Boxster racing on a Porsche Factory Advertisement or film.
Factory does not support Boxster racing....don't want anyone thinkng that the 911 is not king of the hill

Great film, loved it and so did my friends. That's one of the great things about owning a Porsche you can drive it to the market for a six pak or to the track for high speed fun without having to do any mods to the car. Show and go.

Hi Chris, yes it has been a while. I'm planning on a GGR Thunderhill event later in the year and the Cherries Jubilee event at LS in October. I haven't planned anything the first half of the year because the weather has sucked. AX starts at Redwood on the 26th and none too soon as my right foot is suffering from a severe case of atrophy. Done anything to your car this year? I'm having an EVOM CAI installed in a week and may shell out for the Sportech muffler. Hope to run into you at an event this year.
