The Australian is passionate about Motorsport and he has let some of that out. The racer is one the best drivers in the world, so his opinion counts for quite a bit.

Recent reports are that Porsche is contemplating a Boxster Spyder GT4. The car would combine the weight savings of the current Boxster Spyder but would have the harder edge of a Cayman GT4.

Without all of the creature comforts, the Spyder is a pure driver’s car. It has a good amount of power, weighs less than a standard Boxster and the icing on the cake is the wonderful 6-speed manual transmission.

Proof of this is further evident when you visit the Top Gear website (it formerly had all three presenter plus the Stig on the header, but they now only have the Stig).

This for most of us kills the pokey little motoring show on BBC2. However, in an interview Mr. Clarkson recently stated that he thought that all three presenters should make a new automotive show.
