I believe that the Boxster S is the best value in the world for a high-performance sports car. It is a far more powerful car than the standard Boxster, yet nowhere near the price of the larger Porsches. Plus, you get to put the top down in the summer, yet with the top up the noise level is nearly that of cars with steel tops, due to the extra-thick lining and the real canvas outer skin. The options are pricey when ordering new but many, like the Xenon headlights, Bose sound system, memory power heated seats, and the stability control system are well worth the extra, and help me to sell the car faster and for more once I've moved on to a new one.

Had an'83 911SC cabriolet and sold it to buy the '03 Boxster S cabrio. After beibng a 911 purist, I couldn't be happier with a car. Great styling,classic Porcshe handling, and after spending about $1000 for an ecu remap, this baby puts out about 275 horses, and is extremely quick, and powerful through all 6 gears. A really fun car that gets lots of positive attention...even from the guys/gals in the Porsche club.

Boxster S fun

Excellent handling and power for the price. the best back support I have experienced and I have a back problem, so that is important. If travelling, it is necessaryto be careful because the trunk space is limited, but two people, plus a lot of camera gear can be accommodated. There is not a lot of space in the inside for drinks, etc. Otherwise, an excellent vehicle and the space issue is understandable. I am delighted with it

After driving all kinds of different sports cars through the years, I have chosen to own 2 Honda S2000s and now this Boxster S. This car is just one large step beyond the already very enjoyable and capable S2000. Although the price difference of the 2 cars new is very wide, the used car market is closing the gap. Making the Boxster S a better buy even at a couple grand more. The cars handle very well. I have used the car on a road course type track plus as a daily commuter. It is the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. My few negatives are; that it is more expensive to work on, although it has been very reliable, and not very do it your self friendly.

The S model is a blast and not much more than the base model when buying used. It is the way to go. This car is built for the driver. It sticks to the road as if it were on rails and gets you up to 60 mph in 5 seconds. Buying this car used gives you a great sports car for the money. I have found it to be reliable. Have fun with it!

Best deal in the Universe

For the price of a used Civic, you can have nearly as much fun as anything in life. And you can drive it everyday.
