I would like to know what is your opinion.
I posted aBoxster video on youtube, I have close to 29000 viewing, most of the comments are good, nice comment, but every once in a while, I get a comments like: "Your car sucks, you should get one 911 like the one I have"

You have a beautiful car and you live in a beautiful place, Honolulu, HI.
Poor man's Porsche topic has been discussed before here on Babblers:

Forget what others say. I have a boxster and its the best car to drive. In fact all Porsche's are great.
I will be in Oahu / Ko Olina last 2 weeks of September. I will keep my eyes out for you and take a pic.

What is the link of your video on youtube?

Porsche Customers Name Boxster and Cayman Their Ideal Sports Cars
September 7, 2007
ATLANTA -- Porsche customers have again lauded the superior driving experience of their cars through AutoPacific’s 2007 Ideal Vehicle Awards (IVA) survey. The California-based automotive marketing and product-consulting firm created the IVAs to measure how closely a vehicle matches an owner’s expectations. The [sm=happy046.gif][sm=happy046.gif]Porsche Boxster achieved the first place IVA in the sports car segment, marking its sweep of all three 2007 AutoPacific sports car awards, including the Vehicle Satisfaction Award and the Motorist Choice Award jointly, presented by AutoPacific and IntelliChoice. The Porsche Cayman received the premium sports car IVA, with the[sm=lol.gif] Porsche 911 placing third in this category.

The sad truth is that the boxster is the entry level Porsche. You can buy them used all day long for mid teens now. It will be the next 944 (which in the 80's and 90's was the original "poor mans porsche"), and I would guess that will be followed by the Cayman in 15 years or so. The funny thing is, that new, the cars cost 50-60k, which is more than probably 90% of what other cars cost on the market today.

People will always have their opinions, but you know there are sayings about opinions No matter what car you drive, someone is not going to like it. Who cares. Enjoy the car, and forget what people think of it.

Thanks dedes! Well say! Actually, all those negative comments... I don't really care, I am happy everytime I start the engine. I am not born rich, not even close to that, I look at it as one of my proud achievement.
The link that you provide contain a lot of information, I will joint the site later and read more about it.
I do have one comments once: "You must be a hair dresser..... " I just laugh it off. No matter what, I don't think a $65,000 car falls into a "CHEAP" car region.
Check out my video when you have time

Like what Porsche said: "Make your escape" and enjoy what we have all earned - THE BOXSTER.

And some days I well almost get sucked of the road by a 911 ect its all good.

Funny isn't it.. the only people that ever say to me "that's a poor man's Porsche" are the people that:

a - drive a Ford Focus, Mondeo, Vauxhall Astraor such like.
b - have kids, thereforewouldn't fit in a Boxster.
c - can't afford to run a Porsche
d - don't appreciate great cars
e - don't know what the F they are talking about.

You gotta laugh at them really!
