Pros

The most practical sports car on the market with 2 large trunks!  Easily handles Costco runs!  Gorgeous design, comfortable, handles like on rails, sounds fantastic.  A wonderful car.

Cons

With the top up, backing up requires care.

Fantastic, Wonderful, Practical Sports Car — There is very little that I dislike about this car. It's comfortable, sounds awesome, quick, is beautiful, reliable, has a ton of cargo space for this type of car. It's Air Conditioning easily handles 120 days in the desert. Fantastic car.

Pros

Superb handling
Love to rev engine
Superior PDK gear shifting
Very quiet in cabin as a convertible
Unreal gas mileage for a sport car - screaming 32 MPG highway, my mixed is 24.6 MPG
Luxurious interior very similar as new 991
14-way sport seat

Cons

The blindspots when the soft-top is up.

Love It, And You Owe It To Yourself To Drive This Car. Most Affordable Latest Model From Porsche. — Superb handling - 40% more rigidity than prior model still maintain daily drive comfort. Love to rev engine; superior PDK gear shifting; With top down, very quiet in cabin. Unreal gas mileage for a sport car. Finally an interior that matches the superior mechanical marvel. The 14-way sport seat is a must-have. Bottom-line for me is how well the car handles on twisty hilly road with near perfect feedback from the car as well as the flawless PDK which I can never shift gear as fast and as smooth as it does. With the superb PDK, you can easily keep the rev at 4000+ which wrings out the best torque of this car. This car loves to rev, mind you. I missed the 2 tiny seats in my previous 911. Although not suited for much use, it provides more room which is always welcomed. BTW, most people dinged the base Boxster as underpower, I actually enjoyed the base model more than the "S". Simply, it is more fun to drive.

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

Smooth, New, Feels And Looks Amazing! — You can't beat new...the looks the drive all seem and feel next level. I have the upgraded Wheels painted black, 6 speed, silver and black color combo. I love it after having it two weeks would change nothing, except interior care must be taken as leather is super soft, as is the interior trim! Can scratch and leave finger prints so care and a microfiber cloth nearby keeps things super clean. Dash trim has a very soft dry look only recomondation would be a little tougher trim and finish as its super soft and dry. (finger nail can Damage or scratch interior trim so be carefull. Exterior trim also has dry look and feel so I treated it with a coat of black trim protectant and it has worked well! Paint with clear coat is a must, 710 extra for matalic paint super easy to wash and looks great!

Great Looking Car, Fun To Drive By Mchopra

Love This Car - But Just A Little Bit Less Than My Old '92 911 By Boxsters911

it's amazing that you can buy a car with 20,000 miles, for less than $20,000 when it cost almost 3 times that much new. The S is definitely worth the extra cost, and the 2000 and up models are better ... Read More
