How The Boxster Saved Porsche

  How The Boxster Saved Porsche <p>Porsche needed a mass-market sales king in the 90s, and the Boxster delivered.</p>There are some Porsche fans who would argue that the Boxster isn't a 'real Porsche' or that it's not manly enough for them to drive. You should probably just cut those kinds of people out of your life, because you don't need that kind of negativity. The Boxster is one of the greatest cars ever made, and not only that, the 986 Boxster's success helped pull Porsche out of the doldrums of early 1990s poor sales.

Hurricane Harvey has had an absolutely devastating impact on Houston and the surrounding areas of Southeast Texas. The record rainfall has brought unprecedented flooding to the region, with many residents losing everything.

But through it all there have also been tales of people coming together to help one another and ingenious solutions to saving property. Like, as Jalopnik reports, Cody Crochet and his E36 M3s.

Crochet had only anticipated about a foot of flooding around his home, so he put his cars up on lifts to keep them above the floodline. But that wasn't enough, as the expected one foot of water became three feet. His track car was outside on a trailer and his M3 was on jack stands in the garage. He also has a lifted X5 that was close to being lost as well.

Instead of giving up, Crochet decided to do whatever he could to save his cars and documented it all on his YouTube page. And to hear more of what Crochet did, check out the full article on Jalopnik.
