I know, the whole cars-are-putting-on-weight-like-dudes-on-bacon-and-cheddar-pies thing is old, but I saw in the flesh and photographed the Boxster Spyder and it’s tiny.
Tiny like something you’d want to pocket, then outrun all the security guards. What to make of the 550 then? And it’s not even as shocking as a Honda S600 vs. a Honda S2000, where the ‘60s roadster turns the sub-Miata S2000 into an aircraft carrier.
Suddenly, the story of Hans Hermann slipping under a closed railway crossing at the 1954 Mille Miglia seems utterly reasonable.
