Skyline sucks.

Ferrari is a nice car, but owners suck.

Blah, blah.

I own a Carrera, but think the Boxster is awesome. If they made a 2 seat, mid-engined Boxster Coupe, I would buy that in a second.

By the way, lots of girls drive Boxsters. Lots of girls drive Carreras, but no girls drive Skylines, cause thay suck.

(ha ha)

<strong>Oh this is such a crock, here's the info on the car:

The Nissan Skyline GT-R.
Year: 1998 Status: Currently in production
Engine: 2.6 litre twin turbocharged straight six. Power: 280 bhp
0-60: 5.2 secs, Top speed: Electronically limited to 155 mph.

Now here are the records for the Nordschliefe circuit at Nurburbring:
Now from the Nurburgring website:
Northern Loop historical records
Class Driver Car Time Speed Event
Formel 1 Clay Regazzoni Ferrari 7.06,4 192,8 km/h GP von Deutschland 1975
Gruppe C Derek Bell/Stefan Bellof Porsche 956 6.25,91 194,33 km/h 1.000-km - Rennen 1983
Motorcycle Marco Lucchinelli Suzuki 500ccm 8.22,2 163,6 km/h GP von Deutschland 1980

Notice that a motorcyle that turned an 8 minute 22 second lap around the course averaged 163 mph. Since by Nissan's own admission the Skyline is limited to 155mph, there's no way it could have broken the 8 second barrier.

This "unofficial" claim of breaking 8 seconds will have to remain.
</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana,Tahoma,Arial,Helvetica,Geneva">Look more carefully at the records and you will see that speeds are in kilometers per hr.
So the 8:22 163.6 kph = 101.7 mph

Even Derek Bell's 6:25 at 194.33 kph =120.75 mph.

Both are well within the stated top speed of the Skyline.

Christer you are so right it's threads like this that seem to prevent me getting an answer to a genuine question on this forum. See retrofit 2003 roof below - any ideas guys. Please it would be much appreciated.

Funny posts- some r a little too sensitive. I drive a 03 986 2.7L and love it man. I have chest hair and can grow a beard in about 3 hours. No I am not a woman. Ha.

What ghoul dug this out of the graveyard?

If the Boxster is a girl's car, then buy me a pink skirt and call me Nancy. I've been looking for one for months.

Here in Southern Cal I see lots of (beautiful) women driving Boxsters and it doesn't bother me a bit. I usually drive mine with the top down and they usually have the top up....must be a hair thing..........

If someone says a Boxster is a girls car, they don't understand what a "Sport Car" is. Or have never driven one.
