From SpeedTV.com article “NASA: Champions Crowned Saturday At Mid-Ohio.”
In one of the biggest fields of the weekend, the GTS race had 42 cars take the green flag. Number 0 Randy Mueller (Miami, Fla.) in his GTS4 category BMW M3 took the lead from pole position. On lap four the GTS4 No. 171 Porsche of Jay Matus (Pearland, Tx) flipped over and landed on its wheels in turn five. Behind Mueller, Scott Bove (Conifer, Colo.) in his No. 22 BMW M3 was embroiled in a battle with No. 15 Chris Streit’s (Naperville, ILL) Porsche.
The battle allowed Mueller to get out to a six-second lead at the races half-way mark. On lap 12, the second full-course caution of the race flew, bunching the large field together. On the restart Mueller, with Bove in tow took the win with Streit ending up in third.
In GTS1 Jean-Pierre Verbunt (Ancaster, Ont. Can.) won in his No. 894 Porsche 944. In GTS 2 John Graber (Bay Village, OH) took the trophy in his No. 643 Porsche 944 with Steve Ott (Houston, Tx) winning GTS3 in his No. 172 Porsche Boxster.
“It was exciting and full of drama, ” Mueller said. “There were cars everywhere, two full-course yellows. One of the yellows wasn’t followed by a green. I got jumped on the restart, not expecting to go green, so I had to make up the time. It made it a little more exciting. The car was pretty good. Not as good as it was in the dry the other day. It was good enough to get it done today, that is for sure.”

It's "Boxster." It's parked next to your Ferari and your Lambergini. You're quite the expert, eh??
Speed doesn't make it a Porsche. Who designed it and what it was originally intended for has a lot of say in what it is. Look up the history of the 914 or the 924. As to the Boxster that you fantasize about owning, it's a Porsche. However, the original poster was discussing an "old Porsche" that he bought to fix up. I doubt that he's discussing a Spyder or a 917, or even a 911 so I assume it's either a 356, a 912, or a 914. Anything to add, or would you prefer to keep making "Brmmm brmmm" noises while you pretend to drive your "Boxter"??
