Pros

FUN

Cons

If you need 4 seats.

35

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"

Nothing except the leather interior which makes it hot in the summer.

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.

Pros

Great handling and balance.

Cons

Interior plastic wears easily.

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.

Pros

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.

185

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.

Pros

It is a Porsche, so it goes, turns, and stops like a Porsche.

Cons

Tiptronic is boring, I mean 'put the car cover on it and try to ignore that I have it' boring.

55

Not For Me... — I bought this car for my wife, to replace the 380SL. Unfortunately we made the mistake of thinking the Tiptronic would be better for around-town driving in LA. Actually, its just boring. I'm sure a lot of people love their Boxsters but between the Ferrari and the Mercedes this car has become the red-headed stepchild and I just don't drive it. My wife got a dog, and the dog got a Jeep, so she doesn't drive it either. Sort of hanging on to it until I get our new house sorted, and then will trade it for something I actually want...

Suprising economy, superb handling.

Your First Step Onto The Porsche Ladder — I`ve owned 911`s, a 924 & a couple of 944`s, the Boxsters a good choice with excellent handling, but isnt as well built as the old school ones.

Pros

It's a Porsche

Cons

It's not a 911, nor even as good as a G35 coupe or 350Z is today

65

Not My Style — It felt cramped, it didn't get up and moved like I think a sports car should, and the final insult is that it sounds like a leaf blower when driving down the street. I know its the entry level car but they really need to work on it if they want someone stepping up from a Miata to want this.

Can't think of one at the moment...

Ignore The "hairdresser's Car" Jibes - These Are Serious Sports Cars! — Mid-engined layout makes for amazing handling and balance. More naturally poised than a 911. 3.2 litre has plenty of everything. Like all Boxster/911's it is at home on a racetrack - somewhere 99% of road cars show their inadequacies.
