Klepps Porsche Boxster — The car was kitted out with side skirts, spoiler, and front bumper. Even with the lowest displacement 2.5L 201HP engine it was pretty quick, but the car excelled in handling. I would ramp it at ridiculous speeds and because it was so short, cut through traffic with ease. The sound of the exhaust was beautifully harmonious; heaven to my ears flying up the gears especially with the top down. Cost of ownership was high: an oil change was $300 and brakes front and back were $890 and $880. However, I sold it for $1500 less than I bought it for 3 years and 20,000 kms later, so it was well worth it!!

Pros

This car, if you know Porsche's is one of the best color combos..white with metropole blue interior leather and top. It has been garaged for a decade and this, as you know, saves the top!
The interior is in top form and the titanium upgrade to the gear shift is very noticeable!
The trips have been few, the beach with the top down and a few soccer tournaments! Tires are in great shape as well!
In short low miles on a car of this calibre gives you years of trouble free enjoyment!

Cons

no cup holder!

Excellente! — Could not ask for a nicer weekend car! When kept in great shape it is a real looker! Of all the color combos this one and maybe one other always looks great and never fails to turn heads! It's a great car for a babe and/or a great chick magnet!

Awesome Car — Wish I had never Wrecked it. Greatest vehicle I have ever owned. Never had a major problem. The only downside is that it should not be used as a daily driver, but a weekend/fun car only. Also not that comfortable on long trips, but then again it is a porsche, I'd still buy another one.

Hated the fact that the battery would go dead in a short time - four weeks of inactivity - and then only a dealer could fix the situation for hundreds of dollars (opening the front hood requires electricity, and that's lacking if the battery is dead - duh.  And Porsche still puts out cars with the same issue even now, eight years later).

Gorgeous — Hated selling mine, but it was time. Great handling car, incredibly fun to drive, better-than-anticipated trunk space (front and back!), people notice you. Mileage nothing special (about 24 mpg highway), tires need to be replaced every four years or so.

Owner for 7 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:6,000
