So after 3 years of Elise ownership, she headed into the sunset...leaving me with a small but welcome profit over what I paid
I'd spent a few months looking for a replacement, still wanted the wind in my hair
and 3rd degree sunburn in the summer
, so I decided to get a Porsche Boxster
Found this one for sale locally at a well respected independent dealer.
Good service history and options, took a test drive and I was hooked!
Mine is a 2005 987 Boxster S, 3.2 280 bhp engine
Picked the car up last Wednesday, took the day off on Friday and planned a 100 mile blast, out towards Grafham water, northish to Uppingham then looping round towards Market Harborough back to home
Zipping between 2nd & 3rd gear corners with the flat-six singing away behind me...obviously no speed limits broken
Completely different animal to other cars I've had, nice and civilised when pottering round but all hell breaks loose when the loud pedal is pressed
