You do not need to see the engine. We tell you it is there and it is. We haf made many fine automobiles with the same engine access as the Boxter -- the 914, the Squareback, the 411.
Perhaps you would reconsider your choice if you were aware of the Porsche Owner Loyalty Program. As a loyal Porsche owner, you can take advantage of special savings on a number of vehicles in the Porsche family of fine (almost German) automobiles -- ranging from a Rolls-Royce (1), with free non-logo (but just as good) oil drip pan to the popular New Beetle, with a Porsche Owner Loyalty voucher to cover the first $1500 of ADM (additional dealer markup).
(1) This vehicle is now being offered without grille or "Spirit of Ectasy" radiator sculpture, but as a former BMW owner, I am sure you know where to obtain these.
