I guess I should address a couple of points. I have been to a few HPDE's in my Volvo S60R. Great fun and I can't wait to hit the track again. Currently running in intermediate class but I no longer have a car to track. Hence the reason I am looking around. I am debating between the Boxster, S2000, Solstice, or mabye an older 911. Since all of these cars can be found under $15k. I am not sure if I intend to race open wheel. Who knows, maybe eventually. Good to keep in mind though.
Hey all. First post here; I am looking into a Boxster as a track day/fun weekend car. I would like to start with something I can drive to the track and eventually build it into a full "blown" track car. After researching these cars (and a gazillion others) I have really enjoyed my findings. Not to mention after driving a GT3 the other day I am totally hooked on the idea of a Porsche. So to my question, should I start off with a regular Boxster or start off with a S? Knowing myself, I like to upgrade constantly. I have approached this a couple of ways. If I went with a regular Boxster, I would like to find one super cheap and then start building up from there. (I.e. blown engine/transmission) If I did this route, I have read the chassis would need some strengthening to handle the 3.6L I would install. Also a new transmission would be in order and bigger brakes. Being that the S already has the better transmission, brakes, suspension, engine, etc; would I be saving myself the headache? That would be more money upfront but would it be better money spent? Cheers and (early) Merry Christmas. -Will Edit: Almost forgot about suspension!
