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

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.

Cons

Doesnt feel special inside or to drive unless you do some uprating

65

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.

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.

35

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

Pros

Lovely looking - nice for those crisp autumn/winter days, great for the hot summer too!!  Great if you dont like giving lifts to friends!!

Cons

Two seats and not enough luggage room

35

Mmmmmmmm - Perhaps Not So Good On Handling!! Wrote It Off Unfortunately — I loved this car until I killed it, then I fell more in love with my next vehicle the Pajero Evolution. A fantastic summer car but also nice on those crisp winter days with the heating on flat out and a hat!! I didnt like it in the wet though, as found it skittish.

Speed, handling and the wind-in-the-hair aspect

Cons

Not as quick as a 911

What Fun — Weekend hire as a 30th birthday present from my family and friends. Great fun to drive but problems with this particular car which are too complex to go into now. Only wish I'd had more time with it
