I did that 5 years ago. big difference on the driving experience. Boxster is heavier & less agile. Was very fast in Germany saw 140MPH on the GPS in a 3.2S! Need pictures & more details.

Excellent you will love the Boxster mine puts a grin on my face every time I drive it & still can't believe I can afford a Porsche :-)

I have my roof down as much as possible (night or day) & even if it starts raining as long as your travelling above 30mph you don't get wet LOL

Handling wise its more than agile enough to cope with anything I throw it into.

Enjoy

I did two driving tours of Wales last year, one in a 986 and one in my 924, both cars are great fun on all types of road.
Hood down motoring on those good days is fantastic.

The Boxster feels more modern and much more of an everyday car

Enjoy !

I love them both but the 944 is still no slouch.
