This 928S sounds great.

Boxster vs 928s - YouTube

I think it is a Dad and Son chasing Ma in the Boxster.
928S seems fit as a fiddle, and nice dash.
Many on the other forum were annoyed by his aggressive driving.
Curious if we were here.

I'll chime in here. I actually watched the whole video and yes the driving is aggressive, but he's also in a different country. I've been to Germany and different parts of Europe and they drive very differently there. Must be the Autobahn mentality and heck yeah I drove on it. I also seen wreckage of what happens 100 + mph, not a lot of recognizable pieces. If this were in the US, that was slightly dangerous in those residential areas.

We've all done some of those moves at some point in our 928 ownership lives. If you want a car that can't handle those aggressive moves, go buy a Toyota Corolla and sell one of us your 928.

I agree Leo, Europeans just drive like this.

I learned this the way you did, i was stuck in roundabouts way longer than i liked.

A lot of cursing, LOL.
