    Love This Car - But Just A Little Bit Less Than My Old '92 911 — 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 than the early ones. But truth be told, even a base 97 is a whole lot of fun on a sunny day and winding road

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

    Pros: Dollar for dollar the best performance car out there (in my humble opinion) there just isn't a more reasonable way to experience the one of a kind feeling you get driving a Porsche!

    Cons: got to put the money into the IMS fix because you don't want to spend $16,000 on a new engine for a car that may retail for $20,000 or less

    A Great Car …a Unique Color! — I have loved this car for 11 years. It is the fourth Porsche I have owned and is one of my favorites because of the style, handling and power. The unique color is also a major plus which made me fall in love with it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: As the second owner I have enjoyed driving the car in all weather conditions without incident.  My wife and I have taken three long distance trips without too much trouble with packing compromises.

    Cons: Not really a con … it is a two-seater sports car!

    Great All Around Sports Car. — I love this car i know alot of people rather have the 911 but i think the Boxster is a great comprimise. You get the looks the sound and feel of the original Porsche sports car with out the hefty price tag. If you opt for the S model you will get even more out of this fantastic mid engine car.

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

    Pros: Low cost Porsche, great looks, handeling and sound.

    Cons: Expensive repairs

    High Styling At An Affordable Price — There is not much to not like about this car. Plenty of cargo space for traveling, comfortable and a joy to drive. Could use more hp for those power junkies but and overall great car. Tiptronic transmission found on some is a bit pricey when new but a great way to have both an automatic and manual transmission in one.

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

    Pros: Fun car, good looks, affordable sport car

    Cons: Not a family car

    Crown Jewel Of Sports Cars — This car is great. A real head turner wherever I go. It has great features and great handling on the road. I'm only selling mine to upgrade to something larger. This is still one of the best in the luxury car market.

    Pros: Comfortable, great handling

    Cons: None I could see.

    It's A Great Little Ride. — The 'S' model of the Boxter is an all-around better car than the base model not only because of the extra engine size, translating to higher horsepower and torque but also because of the bigger brakes and the six speed transmission. Yes, you do give up a minimalist back seat (suitable for the under 8 set) that comes with the 911, but you get a true roadster look and feel in the bargain. Unlike the 911 convertible that, in a pinch, can serve as a family second car, the Boxter S is a full on sports car with no allowances for extra riders. If you want to haul around a bunch of friends or the wife and kids, this is not the car for you. If, however, wind in your hair and an attachment to the road that feels almost physical gets your adrenalin surging and you can manage to ride duo or alone without it causing social pain, this just may be your ultimate ride.

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

    Pros: I love the original Boxter look. When Porsche created the Boxter it was meant to evoke the feeling of the Porsche 550 Spyder of the 1950's; light, fast and with handling like its on rails. The Boxter S achieves all those attributes while providing a lot of creature comforts too. Porsche's are all 'bullet proof' and mine has certainly been a gem. It only rests in the garage, it doesn't go there to get fixed!

    Cons: It's not as fast as my son's Porsche Turbo. Sometimes a little tricky to get in and out of…especially against a high curb.

    Great Fun Car To Drive, Good Gas Mileage — If you like to feel you drive and enjoy quick responsive braking, steering and acelerating and shifting then this is the car for you. It can be too much car for people who prefer less road noise and more comfort and less road feel.

    Pros: Installed new top with glass ear window and defroster unit in 2007, say goodbye to that old plastic rear window, no more getting out of the car to put the top down!!

    Cons: some small scuffs on the right from wheel rim

    Boxster — Definitely a drivers car. Not as hot on the UK's twisty B-Roads as an Elise since the Porsche weighs more. But the performance is still outstanding. Luggage space is HUGE compared with an Elise. Easily fitting 6 bags of groceries in the rear boot and plenty of space left in the front boot too! Surprisingly cheap to run, service intervals are HUGE and service costs low. Tyres, well, maybe expensive but then it's a 160mph car. Realistic mpg is 20 miles to the gallon.

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

    Pros: It's a porsche!

    Cons: mpg.   Would have liked to get 30 mpg like a Lotus can do.

    Great Little Little Car! — The Boxster S is a great car. I love the way it handles. The engine has good power and the clutch/gear box works smooth as silk. I have owned many sports cars and the Boxster S is easily the best handling and most fun you can have for the money!

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

    Pros: Riding with the top down is a real pleasure.  The way the seating and cabin is designed the wind does not buffet you the way it does with many convertibles.  I also like how quiet the cabin is.

    Cons: Fairly large blind spot on the right side with the top up.  
    Maintenance is a little pricey.
    Cabin is tight - no cup holders.
