Great handling in the true sports car roadster tradition. I have the base Boxster and it has plenty of power for fun driving. I buy the best top and wheel rim care products to keep the top (including the plexi-glass window) like new as long as possible (it still looks great after 10 years). Porsche dealer maint. is awfully high priced, so find a local guy to do the easy stuff like brakes, oil changes etc. Join the internet discussion groups for lots of $ saving tips. I just love to drive the twisties in this car; it makes driving fun. Actually, I could have afforded a 911 (986) but prefer to worry less about $ and be more liberal in my use of the car.

Great Sports Car, As Expected From a Porsche

I've driven my 2000 Boxster S with great pleasure for over 3 years now. It's truely everything a sports car (and Porsche) should be, fast, responsive, communicative, beautiful and completely satisfying to drive. It's also expensive in parts and labor. It has several little plastic plugs and fasteners that are constantly falling off or breaking off. It has some suspension joints that are notorious for wearing out making noise. Rear tires wear out very quickly. This car isn't without flaws, but it is perfect for a 3rd car that doesn't need to be used daily, which could get expensive.

Most Fun Car I've Ever Driven

Change is good right? I never thought I'd ever trade my Harley for a sports car, but...no regrets. This car is so fast and fun, I've never experienced anything like it. It's comfortable, and handles excellent in the curves. I bought it from someone who kept it garaged and covered, so its pristine. I test drove a BMW Z4, and it didn't even compare to the Boxster. If you are in the market, buy one. You won't be able to get the smile off your face.

I bought this car to relive some earlier adventures experienced in a 1956 356 Porsche I bought for $1,000 in 1966 while in the service in Oregon. It has delivered all the fun and memories as I remember them, while offering more HP, safety, performance, and yes, even style! I rented a car to pick it up, and the top down high speed 200 mile trip home took me back 44 years! As one admirer said at a rest stop, 'I always wanted a car like that!" "Me too," I said with a big grin!

Boxster S - Best Porsche

I have owned numerous Porsches, 944, 944 turbo, 911, 911 turbo, and a Boxster S. Yes the turbos were faster, but the Boxster S is just more fun to drive. The convertible top is very easy to operate as are all of the other controls on the car. Another great aspect of this car is the reliablity and easy of maintanance. I have all of the service records for this car since new and it has had very few problems for an 11 year old car. The only thing major was a new water pump after 10 years. Great car, fun to drive, and very reliable. By the way the S is not slow, the major expense for the car has been new back tires.

I recently bought a 2000 boxter S in Nashville, it was a blast driving it home to missouri. This is the best sports car I have Driven for the money. The car handles like it is on rails. I would definitly say that if you can get one, get one.

This car is well a poor mans supercar. Mid engine, beautiful styling. I love my new to me boxter. Yes the car is a pain. Its a mini supercar. But the repairs are within range of a normal owner. Its it expensive? Yes. Would you save money by driving a for focus or toyota carolla? yes. But you dont rember the feeling of those cars. This one haunts me. I find myself driving at night on the freeway with top down and motor humming along and my thoughts and worries melt. I am glad I have mine and already see values going up on these cars...

I recently bought a 2000 boxter in Chicago, it was a blast driving it home to Danville, VA. This is the best sports car I have driven for the money. The car handles great on corners (285/30/18 rear tires). The boxster's control and speed is definately unmatched in it's price range. The 911 may be faster, but only marginally more fun for twice the price. Boxter is a bargain!
