Porsche Boxster Review — Sold my M3 to buy the Boxster although had to suffer a bit of a climb down in performance. I could have had an S but to be honest, this car's more about the handling balance and enjoying the roof off rather than outright pace. Had fun with the car and love the ay it looks and the build quality. Running costs are far less than most people think, routine servicing is the same as any run of the mill hatchback although anything extra is expensive. Brake fuid changes and spark plug changes are quite dear but the common crankshaft oil seal problem was the worst cost to bear.

Pros: Beautiful handling, classy looks, solid build, 30+mpg potential

Cons: Costly repairs

The Ideal Roadster — Lots of fun, lightweight, great performance, and nice interior. Since it has both a front and rear trunk it is really practical for groceries or luggage when you need to. Fantastic fun to floor the gas pedal with the top down but not as fast as a carrera.

Pros: Handling, braking, styling, interior quality, trunk space

Cons: Interior space

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

Pros: sporty

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.

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

Pros: 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.
