Pros: the top comes down fast.
Cons: MY WIFE WANTS TO DRIVE IT.
Advice: buy it, you will be very glad you did.GREAT CAR LOTS OF FUN. ONE OF THE FEW THINGS IN LIFE THAT I GOT MORE THAN I EXPECTED. CORNERS FAST AND IS VERY SMOOTH AT HIGH SPEEDS 100+ . THE CAR LOOKS WONDERFUL STANDING STILL OR ON THE ROAD.LOTS OF CARGO SPACE TOO, I WAS SURPRISED.
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.
Cons: Radio reception not the way it should be.
Advice: Best performance car I ever owned.Truly, one of the best cars ever made. Perfect handling, performance, appearance. You don't want to stop driving it. You become part of the road. A real sports car. Not a make believe car like most manufacturers try to copy. As a previous Porsche owner, the car will retain all it's qualities almost indefinetely.
Pros: The sound of the engine
Cons: Drinks gas like hell
Advice: Buy this its better than anything else on the road that you are considering to buyThe sound of this car is awsome it hug's the road really well and is great on track days and will give any supercar a run for it money. This is by far the best Porsche i have ever owned.
Advice: on the first day of riding this vehicle, don't stomp on the accelerator, you will hit the car in front of youa GREAT vehicle for anyone with the love for racing. The sound is beautiful and every moment in the car is pure excitement. A Perfect car to buy for anyone with extra couple hundred grand dollars lying around.
Pros: Looks and Performance
Cons: the body and bumpers are EASY to damage from stone chips to dings from idiots
Advice: DRIVE IT!FAST FAST FAST !!! Hugs the road .. and Porsche has brought back the GREAT sound of the engine.. Not broken in yet so I can't tell what it will do when it IS... but so far WOW! This is now my ONLY car so I'll update the review as I go through winter.. I did buy a set of rims and snows to get me through .. NJ has some BAD snows sometimes.. BUT I expect NO problems.. We'll see how the quality holds up as time goes by. Porsche has lowered the maintenance costs by extending service intervals sooo it costs about the same as my Lexus did. I'll let you know how quickly I go through tires..
Pros: 18 inch wheels
Cons: The fact that you have to pay for every feature.
Advice: Shop around, determine what you must have, locate the car and bargain. Alternative is to order the one you want and wait but negotiating becomes much harder.Its a great time to buy a porsche. A year or 2 ago, you would have paid a premium to get the one you wanted. I got a 2003 at 1k over dealer invoice. The car is awsome in many respects. It sufficently powered and is quick through every gear (all the way to 6). For an 80k car however, things like rattles in the sun roof/windshield are common place and aggravating if your like me. The interior is noisy and the quality of their HiFi Sound system is less than exciting. I've had BMWs with much better sound systems.
