A friend of mine has one and I just want to prepare myself for his claims as to how inferrior the Corvette is. He used to have older 911s but never seemed to beat me in a race. I have a pretty strong running '92.

I am confident the LT1 would take the S. Keep in mind the Boxter is a terrific handling car but in a straight line you should have no problems.

I raced a non-S Boxter a couple years ago in my 95 vert. It wasn't even close. As to the S, I'm had hoped for a chance to see one of them run me in my 95 but it never happened.

I know they don't want a piece of my FRC. ;)

Based on some road test results I quickly checked you are about equal to an "S"

Not bad for a car 10 years older and much more affordable!

From experience my 86 w/Z51 and some mild mods, no headers no cam.

Ripped the :booty off of a Boxter, and had to make the S work hard. blew both of them through the lights, the S started to catch up around 70-80 kmh but we had to slow down for the next light. Both were pretty cool and gave me the thumbs up.
