Amazing Roadster That Anyone Would Love! — This car is an amazing driver's car, and super fun to drive around. It has power, speed, and terrific handling. The car also has amazing storage space for it's class with two trunks. The only downside is not having back seats, but that is expected.

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

Pros: Fast, Handling, Storage, Looks

Cons: Small, High maintenance costs

Worth Trying Out On A Free Weekend.. Maybe. — Thing is with this car is that it was given to me at the worst time possible: senior year. Yes it's a super fast car; yes it's as flashy as Las Vegas; but as awesome as it could've been, it was pretty impractical. I needed to haul around massive objects for projects and stuff, as well as massive friends a lot of the time, and most streets and weather conditions back in my home town were never too welcoming of a high maintenance car such as this. I actually blew 2/6 cylinders and the crank in a light. But one thing it is good at, is the Corniche; a 60 mile run with only 2 lights, no police, and very little traffic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a Porsche

Cons: It's a Porsche

Sweet — Love driving it with top down in the open highway. Has plenty of pick up. When called upon, this car delivers. The overall appearance is like falling in love each day I open the garage door. A bit on the pricy side to maintain.

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

Pros: powerful

Cons: expensive to maintain

Love It — Simply a great feeling when driving this car...It's a true roadster. You can't beat the ride, handling and acceleration. If you have never driven one, you owe it to yourself to drive one. I also love driving with the top down...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance and handling is second to none

Cons: nothing

Brilliant! — Performance - Great performance and handling. Build Quality - Excellent build quality, car feels like new even today. Appearance - conservative interior and exterior styling which slows the ageing process. Cost of Ownership - Acceptable fuel economy considering the performance. Tyres are expensive to replace though. Fun Factor - You cant help but drive it fast in all situations!

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

Pros: Beautifully balanced chassis

Cons: None

Love It — Overall the car is Amazing, Performance is close top my 911, Beautiful to look at its Appearance is wonderful. As wit all Porsche's its the Solid Build Quality, They just do it right. Save for the 986. Wanted a convertible and the 911 was designed to be a coupe, So we opted for the Boxter S and were very happy. Love It

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

Pros: Amazing

Cons: none at this time

Porsche 987 Boster S — By far the best performance/handling/balanced sports car along with the Cayman. More fun then a 997 911, but not quite as fast in a straight line...have beaten BMW 335i, Mitsubishi Evolution MR ( though many will argue otherwise, but that's normally from the ones who haven't driven ANY of these cars and dumb kids who can't even drive yet! )and many more in the year and a half that i've owned this car.

Pros: driver feedback beyond this time..fun car

Cons: could use a retractable hardtop instead of cheap soft top

One Of The Best Cars I've Owned — This car is awesome. The power is all over the tach, it'll pull from 3K to 7K. It isn't the most powerful car, but the chassis lets you use as much as you can. The handling is great even bone stock. We've had a few issues and the repairs are costly if not for the warranty. $750 for a new 3rd brake light.

Pros: Powerband, handling, convertible

Cons: Slight reliability issues, expensive tires

Ow Ow! — This car is hot, no doubt. Its a cute sports car, so it comes with the good handling and all that. But its also got a bit of muscle behind it. It can keep up with a Mustang (trust me on this one.)

Pros: Sexy, maneuverable, hugs the road.

Cons: Low to the ground--not great visibility.
