Most Fun Car I Have Ever Owned

Driving in Tiptronic on a sunny day with the top down listening to the engine roar is next to heaven

Great Sports Car

Excellent handling- like driving a confortable go cart with the curves it takes. Stops on a dime, and power pluhe "S" model. I love this car!

Just when you thought you never would

...Own a Porsche The Boxster comes along and all of a sudden you can afford to run with the fast guys. Not that buying and maintaining a Porsche is cheap (because it definately is not cheap) but the price of admission, especially a used one is worth every penny. I have owned my 2001 Boxster S for two and a half years now and have never regretted it once. It has head turning style and neck-snapping performance. The handling is superb and the most important thing, braking, is second to none. Maintenance is a bit spendy because you're driving a Porsche, but if done regularly you can take care of the issues a little at a time (not so tough that way) My favorite item is the fact that every Boxster is a ragtop. There is absolutely nothing better than a moonlight cruise with the top down. Even if it's a cool night, power the windows up, turn up the climate control, and fire up the heated seats. WOW!

The Boxster Will Cure a Mid-life Crisis

I purchased a Boxster S with a 6-speed manual transmission to head off a mid-life crisis and am so glad I did. Driving a Boxster is almost like driving a large and refined go-kart. It handles exceptionally well with its wide rear tires and mid-engine design. When you "put the hammer down" you will take off quickly. Braking is solid. The gearbox is somewhat tight, so shifting gears should be done firmly. The Boxster is a thrill to drive! Boxsters are actually a great value when you consider they are made by Porsche, the same company that has won numerous races with incredible cars like the 917. You can purchase a nice used Boxster for about half the price of a comparable Porsche 911. The Boxster is a great choice as a second car for someone who wants to own a Porsche without spending too much money.

Porsche Boxster

These cars are the best value on the road in terms of performance and price. Buying a used Boxster is an excellent choice. Instead of calling it Boxster they should call it riding on rails. The torqued up engine and interior is such a unique feel. Everyone enjoys riding in a porsche because it is so out of the norm. Don't recommend it as an every day car because it is simply not designed for it but appreciate it for what it is and that is why it makes an excellent used car purchase for those that have a bug for something out of the ordinary that is just fun!
