Pros

Installed new top with glass ear window and defroster unit in 2007, say goodbye to that old plastic rear window, no more getting out of the car to put the top down!!

Cons

some small scuffs on the right from wheel rim

Great Fun Car To Drive, Good Gas Mileage — If you like to feel you drive and enjoy quick responsive braking, steering and acelerating and shifting then this is the car for you. It can be too much car for people who prefer less road noise and more comfort and less road feel.

Pros

It's a porsche!

Cons

mpg.   Would have liked to get 30 mpg like a Lotus can do.

Boxster — Definitely a drivers car. Not as hot on the UK's twisty B-Roads as an Elise since the Porsche weighs more. But the performance is still outstanding. Luggage space is HUGE compared with an Elise. Easily fitting 6 bags of groceries in the rear boot and plenty of space left in the front boot too! Surprisingly cheap to run, service intervals are HUGE and service costs low. Tyres, well, maybe expensive but then it's a 160mph car. Realistic mpg is 20 miles to the gallon.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Riding with the top down is a real pleasure.  The way the seating and cabin is designed the wind does not buffet you the way it does with many convertibles.  I also like how quiet the cabin is.

Cons

Fairly large blind spot on the right side with the top up.  
Maintenance is a little pricey.
Cabin is tight - no cup holders.

Great Little Little Car! — The Boxster S is a great car. I love the way it handles. The engine has good power and the clutch/gear box works smooth as silk. I have owned many sports cars and the Boxster S is easily the best handling and most fun you can have for the money!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

2000 Boxster S — Love the steering feel: lots of feedback coming through the steering wheel Engine pulls strong after 4000 RPMs only Transmission throws too long Brakes are fantastic and not overboosted like 99% of cars Balance is excellent and when the back breaks loose it does so very progressively Reliability is average

N/a — It is black with tan interior. It has a 5 speed transmission. It has a brand new top with a glass window. The motor has 30k miles on it and 113k on the rest of the car. It is a blast to drive with 230hp 230tq.

Other people's attitudes to it.

Not Cheap To Run But Worth It — Slower than i want it to be. Perhaps an S or a 911 would do the trick. Petrol is getting more expensive again so economy could be better but the heavy right foot won't lay off. Buy one for fun.

Pros

Style, exhaust note, handling, braking, acceleration, comfort. Plus it has two trunks.

Cons

Fuel economy sucks when you give it some stick, no glove box, engine access. The stock radio has less than stellar radio reception.

Lightly Modified, Plan On Keeping It That Way. — It's an absolute blast on winding roads.

A real fun drivers Car

Porsche Boxster 2.7 Cabriolet — Porsche Boxster 2.7 Convertible. Lovely Car in Black, with a green leather interior (the interior looks a lot better than it sounds!) Drives really well, a lot of fun for the more spirited driver!! Experience in rear wheel drive cars is recommended as the 2.7 6 cylinder boxer engine can make the back end quite lively, due to having no traction control (I think this was an optional extra) despite the perfect weight distribution of the mid engine floor plan.

Porsche Boxster — I fell in love with this car, and ended up owning it for 6 and a half years. If it had been the 3.2 and had the glass rear screen I'd still own it now. Needed better wheels as well.
