    Finally a good use for a Boxster

    This guy did a nice job of taking all the bits and pieces from a Boxster and making something unique by putting them into an old school bug. Enter the Bugster.

    You know what they say. People buy a Boxster because they can't afford a 911.

    I respect the engineering skill it took to pull that off.

    I have to applaud the time and energy, and knowledge it took to do that. However, the Boxster is a perfectly good car in it's own way.
    those big flying thingies knocked my picture off the wall.

    I'm not a fan of the old Beetles and the Boxster is meh to me, but that thing is cool!

    Hmmm, I don't agree with that. I've driven a Boxster and it was a blast to drive. Fast and handled like it was on rails.
