    2005 Porsche Boxster - Base (M5)

    Pros: handles like its on rails

    Cons: not great looking although better then the 911

    Advice: none

    looking to purchase a sports car. have driven vettes, boxters and 911s. Have to say that so far the boxter was the car that made me smile ear to ear. Handles and sounds better then the vette and the 911. Im torn on what to purchase cause the vette looks so dam nice!!! But like i said the boxter ate them for lunch in the fun around town dept. As much fun as hammering around town on my motorcycle and thats a whole lot of fun!!!!!

    2005 Porsche Boxster - Base (M5)

    Pros: No understeer like a 911, stirring engine sound, Porsche brakes (The Best), everyday usefullness.

    Cons: Cost of routine Porsche service. Part of the ticket price, I guess.

    Advice: Drive one. Buy a used one. Porsche depreciation the first two years is substantial.

    I went to the dealer to see about trading my 2004 911 convertible for a 2006 911 coupe. Drove and didn't like the coupe as much. I drove a standard Boxster as a whim and was very impressed. Compared to a 911 convertible the Boxster is a better car. The Boxster has lots of power (although noticeably less than a 911, as is true with most cars). It has more accurate steering, a better gearshift, smoother ride with better cornering feel, has a much less windy cockpit, a much better sounding engine, more luggage space, and is way cheaper! Fuel economy averages 26mpg overall, routinely 31 on the highway. I thought my old Miata was the ultimate handling sports car. Not so. A Boxster is the king.

    2005 Porsche Boxster - S (M6)

    Pros: Fun to drive-engine and transmission

    Cons: CD-changer. No random play between discs(picky, but you asked)

    Advice: Buy it - not a great 'value' but I'm glad my common sense lost out to my love for the car.

    Drives like no other car I have ever owned. Great handling, acceleration(6-speed), engine sounds and overall fun to drive. I have owned a 98 Corvette and 04 350Z . The Boxster S shines in comparison. The only thing better is a 911.

    2005 Porsche Boxster - Base (M5)

    Pros: Triptonic transmisson (my other car had a manual).

    Cons: Wish it came with a switch for passenger air bags

    Advice: Try it, you'll like it...........

    The test drive was great, thrilling to be exact and I bought the car!!! It was just what I was looking for, seal gray metallic, Triptonic, etc. This is my 2nd Porsche and I AM a fan! The dealer was terrific and let me drive several cars, to make sure that the Boxster was the one I wanted. Remember, girls, this car is NOT just for a man.
