A Great Sports Car

by SuperSteve from Long Island, NY on Tue Jan 13 2015

The best thing about the model year 2010 is that Porsche eliminated the IMS (beginning 2009) (intermediate shaft bearing) that was so problematic that there was a class action law suit against Porsche. See Google for details. This is a really nice car overall, although I do prefer the Boxster S for night and day difference in performance. Get the 6 speed, although that is my preference instead of the PDK. It's a sports car so why would you want an automatic? Avoid those in an accident, previously, as being smacked in the rear or side can be problematic as a mid engined car. Overall I love Porsche and own 3 including a classic 911 and 914. Great cars. Just do your homework, and get a PPI (Porsche Pre Inspection just to be sure in order to avoid expensive headaches.

Fun but...

by Driver from Los Angeles on Wed Dec 23 2015

The car is great fun to drive. I chose a 2010 because the IMS bearing problem had finally been solved. A total engine failure is simply not acceptable, no matter how fun the car. Well, at 37,000 miles the shift cable broke. It's a problem that leaves you stranded and frustrated. However, as they loaded the car onto the flatbed and I contemplated trading it in, I thought; "but I really want it!" I hope the cable is an updated/upgraded version of the original. I'll be sure to update this review if it breaks again.

Good Performance and Value

by Boxster Fan from DFW, TX on Tue Aug 01 2017

The 2010 Porsche Boxster has many reliability, performance, and interior improvements over older models. Also, much more capable highway cruiser than the older models. This car has the all of the Porsche driving experience and has mid-engine handling. Mine has some extra options. Bose Stereo, Homelink, and Heated Seats. Definitely fun to drive.

Funnest Car to own.

by PorscheGuy from Detroit, Mi on Thu Jun 07 2018

Porsche is an excellent brand and the 2010 Boxster S proves to be a mid engine load of fun. Looks so sweet, has power and handles like a race car.

Our Take on the 2010 Porsche Boxster


Spring arrived in the form of the 2010 Porsche Boxster S, a car that is its own excuse for driving.

It is a roadster, which means it's fundamentally impractical. It's tiny with a convertible top and is best enjoyed on clear spring days with the top down. It has seats for two people and scant room for their stuff. It does not care. It is a celebration of life as ballet, not a champion of heavy lifting.

The 2010 Boxster S has been substantially redesigned for driving pleasure, which is high praise.

Since its inception in 1997, the Porsche Boxster and, later, its more powerful "S" sibling, were favorites among people who love driving. Those patrons were pleased with the nearly perfect balance of the car... Read More
