2003 Porsche Boxster - S (M6)
Pros: Extraordinary styling and an equally brilliant interior make it the best sport car Ive ever owned. previous/current cars: Mazda RX7 '93; BMW M3 '99; BMW M5 01'; Mercedes S500 '03. Fun to drive. Very fast.
Cons: Expensive for most, a little cramped on the inside (im 6'6''), 3 theift attempts and I live in Beverly Hills, Ca!
Advice: The Porsche Boxster S is for those who don't want a classless 350Z and eye sore Z4precise, neutral steering; an aversion by the car to roll, squat or dive under heavy g forces or severe braking, and an almost insurmountable tendency to stay glued to the street and go precisely where it's told! And thats with the stability managment system ($799) off! Even in atrocious weather and some pretty determined driving I never ever feel the thing kick in, Thank you PSM!!!
2003 Porsche Boxster - Base (M5)
Cons: seats a bit narrow
Advice: Buy an almost new one and save some $$$Performance, performance, performance!! The Boxter is hard to beat! Excellent cornering, braking and good acceleration-smooth through the whole range-Easy electric top-no need for a boot! I like the two trunks-I also have an Audi TT Roadster Quattro- It's fun but the Porsche is a more refined car. Not as fast as a Corvette but excellent on windy roads
