Why did the Porsche Boxster remove body panels and windshield?April 9, 2020
It turns out that it’s very fun to disassemble a perfectly working car. That’s what the guys from Casey Putsch on YouTube think so. They took off everything unnecessary with the 2007 Porsche Boxster S.
There are two main ways to improve the dynamic capabilities of a car. You can reduce its weight or increase the output of its motor. Of course, it is always better to combine these two measures, but this is not always possible. In those cases where the modernization of the power plant is too expensive or takes a lot of time, it is easiest to remove all unnecessary parts from the machine as much as possible, thereby reducing its weight.
This is exactly what the Casey Putsch guys on YouTube did with their 2007 Porsche Boxster S. Before the dismantling process begins, the team weighs the car and the scales show exactly 1,416 kilograms.
What you are going to see next is something that we would never think about, but still it is very funny. To disassemble a perfectly working machine … this is at least disrespectful to the machine itself. It is worth noting that this guy enjoys every minute of this process.
At some point, after a 6: 30-minute mark in the video, Boxster stopped looking … well, like Boxster. The car lost its bumper, lights and headlights, a roof panel, a windshield, an active rear spoiler and even exhaust pipes. The guys even took off the side mirrors. It is noteworthy that immediately after taking the car out of the garage, the driver shot down his own Toyota MR2.
