Basically, I kind of want to buy a Porsche Boxster because they are dirt cheap now. But it is such a chick's car. How could I make it more masculine, and not look like fruity. I plan on doing these mods:

-hardtop
-wheels
-bodykit
Be cool.

Don't do a body kit FFS. Wheels and a nice black or solid white paint job would look good enough.
My Gear-

Guitars
- Schecter Gryphon
- Ibanez GRX40

Amp/Effects

- Crate FXT65 With DSP
- Dunlop Cry Baby Classic

My Choice
- DR 9's
- Dunlop 2mm

You should ad the "Don't be insecure" mod. I mean, you obviously already are if you're buying a porsche :-P

But seriously, if you feel that way now, you always will. Don't get a boxster if you think they're girly.

Take the money you would've spent, buy an S2000, boost it. Win.

Tape steak/power tools to the outside of it. Flawless idea.

Or maybe I just like Porsches and their engineering? Plus, I'm not into the whole Honda thing. I already drive a Civic.

Get a Cayman instead. The cost of that = cost of boxster + mods.

DO NOT do body kit!! Do the hardtop, wheels, then lower it.

Actually its already pretty low so idk

IMO a 350z is way better but whatever floats your boat

Nah man, I can get a Bosxter for about $12 000. The cheapest Cayman is still around $50 000 in Canadian dollars. I'll shoot myself before I spend $38 000 in mods.
Be cool.

Make it go fast, and if anyone questions your masculinity, challenge them to a drag race and kick their ass.

Get a lot of stickers giving the car a girly name like "Florence" or "TheDude051" and take the piss of the driver of the other car saying they got beat by a girl/car hybrid.

You like Porsche's engineering but not Honda's? Explain that logic to me.

Saying you don't want an S2000 because you have a civic is like saying I don't need to experience sex because my mom kissed me on the cheek once.


How about a used Elise? Cheaper than a boxster and 100x the awesome.

boxster is the poor man's porsche, buying one of those is like saying "I'm not quite good enough to get a proper 911, but I'd like you to think that I am." If you want good engineering, how about an M3?

But if you were going to spend 38 000 Canadian dollars, then how you gonna buy a gun foo'?

In general, Honda's engineering isn't meant to excite, its meant to function. Porsche does both of those VERY well. The only exception to that is the Honda S2000. Although revving at 9K is amazing, and they are constantly praised and 10X better than Boxster, I'd still prefer the Porsche. Just personal preference.

This may be the discussion on UG I'm most qualified to have, as I own an S2000 (my 7th honda), used to race a 944t, 916 and boxsterS, and I'm a mechanical engineer.


It all comes down to what you want. I think the Boxster S is a nice car, and I'd own one and not worry about it a bit. To anyone who calls it a girls car, they're likely just jealous. Ask them to (try to) follow you a few laps around a road course and see how girly it is.

Your thinking of toyota, honda's regular cars are pretty sporty.

I agree, as much as I love Top Gear, the whole "You drive a £37,000 car because you can't afford an £80,000+ car, thus your life has gone down the pan." is utter balls, you could say that about pretty much any car you buy, or for that matter most other things you can purchase.

Throw away the lipstick, eyebrow pencil and tampons then apply a bumper sticker from a local gentlemans club and you're in there.

I cannot call a civic, accord, or indeed any other honda, save for an S2000, "sporty". Just feels wrong to me.
