Well, a week into this site and no Boxter forum yet, so here we go! I tracked my 996 a bit before going the Boxster route for track. Here are my '99 (purple) and '03 (silver).

So how does the Boxster compare to the 996 on the track?

Do you really lose out on that out-of-the-corner power that you get with the rear-engine weight? I imagine the Boxster is more forgiving if you make a mistake but how else do they differ?

The boxster takes less work to drive fast and it is easier to "feel" the limit. Steering feel is similar in terms of light/heavy. When you throw a boxster into a corner it's a lighter feel (obviously) and is easier to toss back and forth....and because of the lighter weight they move pretty good considering smaller motor/s. However, nothing compares to jumping on a 911 out of a corner!

A huge take away from owning older 911's vs the boxster is how much 911 has grown over the years and how LARGO it is post or around 997 iterations. Smaller cars always seem more toss-able, because they are.

Yeah you could see it even with just the 997 to 991 transition. Look at the difference in size:

They are quite different on the track. You have to work the Boxster harder, and maintain revs. I like the power of the 996 better, but Boxster is fun to push hard and abuse.

My perspective was indeed the street/mountain road experience, no track...

Yes on working the boxster harder....depending on the vintage and motor of said boxster, the 987's got a bit more peppy.
