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.

Cons

As with every soft top, the roof will leak!!

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.

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

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.

Got too old to keep

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Fun — I don't want anything else from a car. This fits the bill just nicely: from performance to space and daily drivability. So far running costs are low. This is a car that I wake up on a Saturday morning and think "Where can I drive today"

My Porsche Boxter — Fun to drive. A lot of engine Power. Fine manouverability, very good brakes, tiptronic is superb.... Best car I ever had. I love it. Hi gas mileage, hi cost of ownership, and makes you stressed when drive in traffic. But this is Boxter.

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

Amazing German Engineering — An eight year old car with 100K miles that still runs like new! It's small enough to be fun to drive but big enough inside for a 6'-2" driver. This one will be in the family until the wheels fall off.

Great handling. Great brakes.

Cons

Expensive to maintain. Lot's of little stuff kept breaking and the dealer wouldn't have the parts in stock, so it would mean repeat trip to fix the problem after the parts arrive.

Really Fun To Drive - When It Isn't Broken — The car responds like a Porsche. Very few cars drive and feel this way, provide this level of performance and still remain comfortable. Too bad the car kept breaking with little stuff and add in a really crappy dealer experience in Buffalo NY, it wasn't worth keeping.
