Pros

Handling is absolutely awesome in this little roadster. A truly remarkable performance, especially for the cost.

Cons

Even though I had no repairs or major maintenance done, the parts are not cheap.

Awesome Little Roadster — One of the best sports cars I have ever owned or driven, especially when it comes to the "bang for the buck" aspect. The handling on the Boxster S is impecable, especially curbing, with the torque and response of a true sports car. Love it!

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

Best Car Ever — It's a porsche, you can't go wrong here. Fun, Sporty (understatement) highly reliable. I know you think of sports cars as needing alot of maintenance, but this car is rearely in the shop unless you count oil changes. Oil changes are once a year or every 15k miles which actually saves you money.

Boxster S - Fun On Wheels — I really like everything about this car. It has more performance options than my other Boxster S and I'm enjoying driving it alot more. The heated seats are a nice touch for a chilly day. I can really tell the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) works well when I slam the gears and don't go sideways! This car is SO much fun to drive. It's like an extension of your thoughts and will do whatever you need it to do.

Hot, But High Maintenance — Great car, but requires a lot of maintenance. You definitely need a second car (for maintanence, as well as winter)

Porsche Boxster 3.2 S — Incredible handling, ample power, roof down fun. Still rated as the best roadster after 10 years. Built to last. A joy to own. Parts expensive, but they just don't go wrong. An absolute joy every single time it is driven.

Fast And Sexy — This is a really fun car to drive, it really is a safe vehicle. After to drive a Porsche you will not want to drive any other sports car because its really first class. This vehicle was Garage keep and only driven on the weekends.

Handling!!

Cons

Porsche specialists charge a lot for their work. This is a car that you can maintain and repair yourself, though, and new and used parts are readily available.

My Favorite Driving Car Ever — This is a very personal car-great for daily driving and some more exciting outings as well (pretty fast....). The seats are unusually comfortable. Clutch & transmission are magic. Boxster's balance is remarkably fine--handling gets better as you go faster. You can't beat a drop top for making any drive more fun.

Fun — Car is alot of fun driving up the California coast. The car has alot of storage, hold enough luggage for a two week jont with the wife. Car costs a bit to have work done on it but well worth that cost. You get what you pay for.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
