I am looking to cite this information for my dissertation. I am unable to find the paper you quote at the top. Do you have a URL link for this?

You have to search either for Auto Motor und Sport "70 Jahre Porsche Edition" or Auto Motor und Sport #18 from year 2000. If this data is very important to you, maybe you should try to order the "70 Jahre Porsche Edition" in print.

It was from this 70 years porsche special edition from Auto Motor und Sport. The issue contains lots of old tests from Sport Auto and Auto Motor Sport. The data of the test was originally from the 18th issue of Auto Motor und Sport in 2000.
If you want the magazine in paper:
or as e-book:

Yeah they are good. My friend got an old boxster too for a very affordable price. The only problem is, they didn't look so good back then. Hence why i've been looking at the latest generation. and thinking about getting a used one down the road some time

I bought a 2001 boxster S (Odometer only 40700 miles)2 months ago, and my previous vehicle was a 2011 Ford Mustang GT. pbbly I should not compare the boxster with a american muscle, but have to say that even it s a 14 years old car, but the performance really impresses me. Although the boxster doesnt have that much power, and with only 250 hp 220 lb-ft torque ( basically 200 hp and 200 torque less than the mustang ), but it is really fun to drive. Unfortunately, it s automanual transmission, so I can play with the clutch anymore :(. Uh there is one more thing. I really like the way they use the 255/50/ZR17 tires on the rear, it looks great and also gives the positive handling on the curve.

Great drivers car for the money. Doesnt look that bad either.
Those front lights look bad on 911' But here on boxster they are ok.

Great all arounder sports roadster. And its a Porsche.

350z isnt that good, but propably look better - and still its more outside than inside.
Z4 is better looker, but not deliver such driving expirience like this midle engined car.
