Okay here is my story and my god I can't believe this happend but couldn't resist.

At the light about to get on the highway when a Red viper pulls up next to me I recongize it as a local doctor. Well to the other side of me pulls up a Boxster which are popular with a few of the officers on base. So they start reving up and me being the smart ass that I am look at both guys and rev up too. Hey I can dream too can't I! Well needless to say I got the strangest looks from both guys but I was dead serious. Had the most serious look on my face. So light turns green and since I am in an automatic I jump off the line first. That lasted all of 1.5 seconds they spun tires for a bit before taking off. Last I saw was the two of them flying by me.

It was fun watching them drive off though so I figure I just need to go to pep boys and get some more stickers for the car.

That viper sounded mean! But they spent way to much time spinning tires at least I got off the line first. Thats the only good thing about an auto I just punch it and go.

I figure if I cover the car with stickers I can distract them long enough to let me win. One of my dealers just got some new video products in so might just put tv's on the outside and put a porno in so I don't have to use stickers.

PS don't ever start up your own store man this thing sucks to much work

Did the Viper lay waste to the Boxtoy? It should have walked him BAD.

Hey I could keep up I was only 10 20 cars behind. HEY I made it off the line first I'll take what I can get lol. Boxster only pushes out about 340hp while viper has about 400+. I do believe the viper had the win. I was doing about 120 to catch up and see how they were doing. It was intresting.

Know whats faster though, Blue Lights! NO matter how fast your car is a cop can always get you suprising huh.

Given an open road it is not very hard to outrun a helicopter, actually. Our cars may not be able to but a Vier could without much trouble.

Boxters are toys. They're not even close to 340 hp.

QUOTE
The regular Boxster's 2.7-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine now develops 240 horsepower, up from 225 hp. The output of the 3.2-liter six-cylinder in the Boxster S grows from 258 hp to 280 hp.[/b]
The Viper should have roasted it to a crisp.

BTW, Porsches do not impress me, they are way overpriced for what they are. I'd buy a Vette before I'd buy a Boxter, reliability be damned.

Sorry the new vettes suck. Man they just get uglier and uglier as time goes on. I used to be a Chevy fan but I think now they just do everything totally backwards. Last year Toyota outsold Ford. This year its going to outsell Chevy. No doubt about it. I saw in the WSJ Gm says sales are waining. Duh.
