Fantastic All Around Sports Car — The Boxster Spyder is light, fast, nimble and perfectly balanced - everything you would want in a sports car. Porsche quality is also exceptional. This is a near perfect sports car for the enthusiast. Only negative is the manual soft top. It does take a few minutes to put the top on, but why drive a car like this in bad weather? the car is built to drive topless on sunny afternoons

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

Pros: This is a near perfect sports car for the enthusiast - - .

Cons: The Spyder has a manual top which takes a few minutes to install and tear down

Family Car Ranked 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive35is Roadster RWD worse.
"Neither the Boxter nor the Z4 are family cars"
Would Buy Ranked 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive35is Roadster RWD better.
"Even though it cost me more in terms of the ownership to have a BMW but for some reason this BMW to me will not look outdated in 10 or 20 years. Its a classic hit instantly !"

2012 Porsche Boxster Base Review
Atlas says:
The vehicle from a daily driver perspective lost all appeal one week into leasing it. Very little cargo room, the rear visibility wasnt great at all and the car took some getting used to when driving as its turn in was dare I say wider than I had anticipated. I really appreciated the nods for having a Porsche but getting in and out of my offices underground parking was horrendous. Maybe it was the fact that the boxter was lowered by the previous owner. The few Porsche owners I bumped into jokingly said that I should have just opted for the Cayman or an older 911. The ownership crowd was not a pleasent group to be in. All in all it lasted about a week before I brought the car back and grabbed a fully loaded Audi TT Quattro Sline. The lesson of the day was, Its not how good you look in it, or how good it looks parked. If it cant be your daily driver than its not a good investment.

The Boxster is a great roadster for the weekend but can also be a reliable daily driver. Although the base stereo is not great, I prefer to listen to that classic Porsche engine sound. I love a manua... Read More
