    Do the drag race a few more times and then see who has enough clutch left to keep going.

    Hmm, no ac, no door handles and the porker still can't keep up.

    Can't wait for the electric Porsche though.

    Interesting video, I'm glad Arthur St. Antoine seems to like the Roadster.

    He does dig at it being electric towards the end of the video but he also mentions he's waiting to see Porsche do an electric car as he clearly enjoys the torque and other fun things that come with an electric vehicle.

    Boxster and Tesla

    Not a surprising result in this video. Very few cars would match up to that Spyder in handling and track worthiness. When the Boxster and the BMW m-coupe were first out, I drove both. No doubt that the Boxster handling was more balanced, but I went for the m-coupe because it was just more fun -- a lot of low end torque, that BMW dig in and go feeling coming out of corners.

    I haven't got the Tesla out of its snow tires yet, so I can't make a real comparison. I don't expect it will beat the Boxster in handling, but I bet it's more fun anyway. Just my thoughts.
