A beautiful and nicely equipped model. Minor collision damage noted on Carfax has substantially lowered the perceived value. Could make a nice driver for someone willing to get a PPI performed on it before buying.

Bought it for my girl friend she loves it, I took it for a spin it sticks to the road like it is magnetic, It is more spacious inside than I thought it would be and it has plenty of luggage space.

Rare brown color. Owner had taken very very good care of it. Wish it had navigation. Would have also liked a 911 but cost vs performance I chose the Boxster. More storage in the Boxster. Rides really nicely. Everyone looks.

2013 Porsche Boxster S Review
Chris says:
Fantastic balance between power and handling. Surprising cargo capacity. Fit and finish is second to none. And the sound this thing makes when youve got the top down and blasting through a tunnel... soul-stirring. Must haves: Sport Chrono, full leather, sport exhaust, PASM.

2013 Porsche Boxster S winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2006 Honda S2000 Roadster worse.
"Higher power to weight ratio. Honestly, it doesnt *feel* that much faster than the S2000 to me, but it is. The limits of the Boxster are simply higher in every category."
Front Seats Ranked 2006 Honda S2000 Roadster worse.
"The 18-way adaptive sport seats can be set to hold your body just perfectly."

Loving The New Boxster — I traded my 2006 Boxster for a 2013 Boxster S. It is fully loaded with Platinum Silver, AC/heated seats, etc. I love the new look of the Boxster and they really did a great job of redesigning it. The care is a definite head-turning machine. I get a kick out of the young kids that go by and say, "cool car man!" and give me thumbs up. Seriously, the car is amazing and is so superior to my 2006 with the new features, horsepower, and design. It is sexy, reliable, and uber fun to drive.

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

Pros: New look!!!, AC/heated seats, interior design, dual information screens

Cons: Price

Fantastic, Wonderful, Practical Sports Car — There is very little that I dislike about this car. It's comfortable, sounds awesome, quick, is beautiful, reliable, has a ton of cargo space for this type of car. It's Air Conditioning easily handles 120 days in the desert. Fantastic car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The most practical sports car on the market with 2 large trunks!  Easily handles Costco runs!  Gorgeous design, comfortable, handles like on rails, sounds fantastic.  A wonderful car.

Cons: With the top up, backing up requires care.

Love It, And You Owe It To Yourself To Drive This Car. Most Affordable Latest Model From Porsche. — Superb handling - 40% more rigidity than prior model still maintain daily drive comfort. Love to rev engine; superior PDK gear shifting; With top down, very quiet in cabin. Unreal gas mileage for a sport car. Finally an interior that matches the superior mechanical marvel. The 14-way sport seat is a must-have. Bottom-line for me is how well the car handles on twisty hilly road with near perfect feedback from the car as well as the flawless PDK which I can never shift gear as fast and as smooth as it does. With the superb PDK, you can easily keep the rev at 4000+ which wrings out the best torque of this car. This car loves to rev, mind you. I missed the 2 tiny seats in my previous 911. Although not suited for much use, it provides more room which is always welcomed. BTW, most people dinged the base Boxster as underpower, I actually enjoyed the base model more than the "S". Simply, it is more fun to drive.

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

Pros: Superb handling
Love to rev engine
Superior PDK gear shifting
Very quiet in cabin as a convertible
Unreal gas mileage for a sport car - screaming 32 MPG highway, my mixed is 24.6 MPG
Luxurious interior very similar as new 991
14-way sport seat

Cons: The blindspots when the soft-top is up.

Smooth, New, Feels And Looks Amazing! — You can't beat new...the looks the drive all seem and feel next level. I have the upgraded Wheels painted black, 6 speed, silver and black color combo. I love it after having it two weeks would change nothing, except interior care must be taken as leather is super soft, as is the interior trim! Can scratch and leave finger prints so care and a microfiber cloth nearby keeps things super clean. Dash trim has a very soft dry look only recomondation would be a little tougher trim and finish as its super soft and dry. (finger nail can Damage or scratch interior trim so be carefull. Exterior trim also has dry look and feel so I treated it with a coat of black trim protectant and it has worked well! Paint with clear coat is a must, 710 extra for matalic paint super easy to wash and looks great!

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

Pros: Feels so light, perfect ballence, fast. Great sound of engine and everything feels, look new...you cant beat new must drive one to see for yourself! Has perfect ballance!

Cons: Price with options can climb, interior is delicate leather is soft and feels good but again trim and interior care must be taken so not to scratch.
