    Re: Next Boxster to be Electric ?

    Porsche knows exactly how to to destroy/eliminate the Boxster/Cayman platform.
    First, make it a 4 cyl turbo while raising the price. Then make it electric and raise the price further.

    No thanks....
  15. Re: MT and Sport Chrono - Does it do anything?

    Just my speculation.....
