At the lights on a straight flat + early corner, killed it on the exit, then we both braked from 120km/h - 0. I was clearly 10 meters from the behind the final stopping distance of the boxter S.
The Boxster S has 295hp and weighs almost 250 pounds less than the 350. All else being equal, the 350 won't have a chance. The margin should be almost as big as between the 280 and the 350. That will only change with the 350's 2009 facelift, which should make the cars about even (assuming Porsche doesn't counter in time). A few quotes:ikarus - i dont think so... he has a 350, not a 280. a boxster s has a 0-60 time of around 5.2 seconds or so, while the 350 is like 5.4 seconds. But that's just what is posted on the website. They also say the SLK 55 does 0-60 in 4.9 but people on this site have hit 4.3 second 0-60 times. i think the slk350 matches up well against a boxster s... just my opinion
Car and Driver:
Our 2007 Boxster S ran from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 13.4 seconds at 107 mph.
No way! A stock Boxster S will outhandle a stock SLK 350 any day. It's only because of its excellent handling that the S manages to match the time of the SLK55 around the Ring, even though it's short on horse-power. The 350 won't stand a chance.No, what the OP is saying is that the 350 had superior cornering and braking ability over the Boxter S -- not 0 to 60 acceleration.
