Has mine 2.5+ years and each time I turn the key is like the first time. There is no substitute.

Well I ordered mine played with the spec for days but ends up at £66k which I grant is a lot, but then you are getting a car with 0-60 in 4.7 sec and 177mph ( same as a 100k Maserrati) , the 991 Porsche is when speced similar is near on £92k for 0.5 sec 0-60 difference, madness, if you have kds that are 6ft you can't use the rear seats so what's the point, this is from a man who used to have a GT3RS as well, in real world sports cars a 981 is all you need.

Congratulations on your order, I love the idea of a new boxster. But £66k?! Up from what? £45k basic? How did you manage to add that much?
