Sorry to see you go. You have been a real asset to the site.

Would be very interested to see, when you get used to it, how the GTS compares to the M on ordinary roads. Not only in the areas of performance but also in other drivers attitudes to a new Porsche.

In terms of performance, in a straight line there would not be much in it unless I used the porsches launch control but on the twisties A to B there would be a pretty wide margin I'm afraid. The Boxster has come a lot further in 20 years than BMW has developed the Z cars :rtm: BMW rather gave up the Z4 being a true sports car when they stopped developing an ///M version.

With regard to drivers attitudes I find Porsches to be the most accepted super cars, you only have to live with a Ferrari for a few months to realise that. The main attitudes you get with porsches are from other porsche drivers lol

Wow I'm suprised you sold it but when your offerred too good a price to turn down but I bet it caused you a couple of uneasy nights to part with it though. Enjoy your new toy though.

Not with the current owner, he is the last person you would see on an internet forum.

I have a small glimmer that one day it may end up back with me, he has promised me first refusal should he sell....... be he would have to take a hit on the price lol

Truth be told I had it all prepped ready for him to take away but he has asked if I'll keep it stored for him. I think he really just likes the idea of owning it and he may never even actually look at it, he lives in a different world. I have it in my head that its not mine anymore despite the fact its still in one of my parking spaces.

Hi Jonttt,
You wont know me but I sure know you... when I joined back in 2011 with my newly purchased Z3M, I definitely tuned in to your posts, a major contributor to this site. I read with keen interest your insights and tech knowledge... well done and thanks for all those great contributions, the site will not be the same.

I see you have expanded your p-car range now and upgraded (sorry Z people :oops: ) your Zed to a boxster. I have recently also bought a p-car (a backdated 911) and love it. And like you, the M now, sad to say has limited days I'm afraid as much as I love its cute little curvy body and great sound....and will be updated to a boxster at some point in the future when funds and ducks align. I just gotta have a convertible in my life, love the roofless driving feel.

Just following in the footsteps.... :)

Wow Jonttt - a big surprise but as you say when an offer is too good to refuse everything has a price. I'm sure the Boxster will prove an worthy 'replacement' in the roadster stakes.
