I was curious to know. WHen driving down the roads. Which Porches can the Z stand up to? I have seen Carerras and Turbos and of course the Boxter. And most I can figure out by looking at the width of the tires, but many I have no clue about. Like the 928 for example. If I see one do I turn a corner? :D

I was wondering when you would notice! You kept posting on your original thread.

Why not challenge them all and see what happens? Of course, if I see big rear shooz, dual tipped exhaust, and the word 'Turbo' on the back, I would probably avoid that one...

Most of the guys in the Porsches can be found on the BEST road out here for running, but they never run past 10 MPH UNDER the speed limit. I think its because they cant take the time to pull the cell phones from their butts.

The turbo ones sure are purdy looking. But I really want to make a Boxter look bad...

You could take a Boxster any day. The base model has a 2.7L V6 with 225 hp at the crank. Then the next 2 models have 3.2L engines with a max of 264hp. Of course, they weigh in at 2811 lbs, have RWD, and dual exhaust (I think).

I'd try to 'challenge' one...

Boxster has the single asshole exhaust and all are convertibles. They have side inlet ducts like the Turbo, that's the only relation it has with the Turbo, lol.
