    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.)

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros: This car is the best car we have ever owned

    Cons: It's a porsche, what could possibly be wrong here.

    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.

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

    Pros: Rocket ship on wheels with incredible handling.  This car is just a blast to drive...so much fun!

    Cons: No cargo space and not a good bad weather car

    Pros: This Car is so much fun to drive!

    Cons: just did not drive it enough.

    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

    Pros: Fun.............  plus alot of storage for road trips.

    Cons: Definitely not a family car.

    A Performance Car That Anyone Can Drive — With 23,000 miles on the odometer, you know this is my baby. Rain rarely touches her perfect exterior. No dings, dents or scrapes. Porsche hit a home run when they developed the Boxster. Only problem: they sold so many that the value of the vehicle has not held up like a 911.

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

    Pros: Handling, ease of operation, color, performance

    Cons: None

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

    Porsche Boxster S — Corners on rails and plenty fast. Cost of ownership is high. Fun factor is high. Build quality is above average. With the heated seats comes longer season of driving. Always ride with the top down or it's not worth driving.

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Cost of ownership

    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.

    Pros: Handling, looks, quality, power

    Cons: Expensive, now being hit with heavy depreciation
