2003 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
Yes, it's a convertible, but Toyota and

turns on twisty roads you will think the
car is violating the laws of physics as
there is no excitement, the car just
TURNS. The phrase "corners as if on

conquer as all your old favorite
twisties will, to be blunt, become
BORING in the Boxster.
