Great All Around Car — Not lightening fast, but handled and braked extremely well. Got decent gas mileage too. Tough for a family of 4 though

Pros: Reliable, fun, topless

Cons: not the fastest

Gorgeous — Hated selling mine, but it was time. Great handling car, incredibly fun to drive, better-than-anticipated trunk space (front and back!), people notice you. Mileage nothing special (about 24 mpg highway), tires need to be replaced every four years or so.

Owner for 7 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:6,000

Cons: Hated the fact that the battery would go dead in a short time - four weeks of inactivity - and then only a dealer could fix the situation for hundreds of dollars (opening the front hood requires electricity, and that's lacking if the battery is dead - duh.  And Porsche still puts out cars with the same issue even now, eight years later).

Excellente! — Could not ask for a nicer weekend car! When kept in great shape it is a real looker! Of all the color combos this one and maybe one other always looks great and never fails to turn heads! It's a great car for a babe and/or a great chick magnet!

Pros: This car, if you know Porsche's is one of the best color combos..white with metropole blue interior leather and top. It has been garaged for a decade and this, as you know, saves the top!
The interior is in top form and the titanium upgrade to the gear shift is very noticeable!
The trips have been few, the beach with the top down and a few soccer tournaments! Tires are in great shape as well!
In short low miles on a car of this calibre gives you years of trouble free enjoyment!

Cons: no cup holder!

Cargo Capacity Ranked 1997 BMW 3 Series 318is Coupe RWD worse.
"Although the BMW might techniquely have more space, the Boxster has two trunks, one deep on up front that fits a golf bag and one in the rear that fits typical luggage suit cases. My wife and I can easily find enough room to go on vacation with the Boxster."

Great car for 1999 and through 2000s. Fantastic handling car with fair amount of power, loads of fun to drive! A bit cramped and tiresome on a long (>3hrs) drive.

Jackie says:
I bought this car at an auction and had it fully restored by my local Porsche dealer. It looks better than the new Boxsters now. It has a 5 Speed Automatic (optional triptronic manual) V6 that provides more than enough horsepower for this little gem. It looks and feels like a rocket.

Power Ranked 2000 BMW Z3 2.3 Roadster RWD worse.
"The Z3 is lighter and reaches 60 mph quicker but the Boxster tops out stronger. The Boxster is also more aerodynamic than the Z3."
Looks/Style Ranked 2000 BMW Z3 2.3 Roadster RWD worse.
"The 1999 Boxster has smoother, more aerodynamic curves. Its more symmetrical in shape. Has a more classy and original design."
Family Car Ranked 2000 BMW Z3 2.3 Roadster RWD worse.
"This is a toss-up. The Z3 has a longer front end making it more difficult to judge proximity to objects in front. Boxster has a spoiler making hug the road better."
Value Ranked 2000 BMW Z3 2.3 Roadster RWD better.
"Less expensive to maintain. Convertible top is simple. It is a less expensive car overall but still very good quality."
