    2007 Porsche Boxster

    A pleasure to drive

    Pros: Engine sound

    Cons: Blind spots

    This car has more than adequate power, and it feels as though you're driving a rocket. It's also comfortable and luxurious, like cars costing much more. Overall it's the most fun car I've ever owned, and I've had BMW's and Mercedes as well.

    2009 Porsche Boxster - S

    Pros: Great performance

    Cons: Not the most comfortable car, especially for a tall driver or passenger.

    Advice: If you want great Porsche performance, and don't mind feeling a little cramped in a roadster, buy this car.

    The 2009 Porsche Boxster is a flat-out high performance machine. The six-cylinder engine offers more power than you might imagine, and the suspension is tuned to maximize handling. As roadsters go, it would be very difficult to beat this one. The top goes down in a mere 12 seconds, and the engine hums along beautifully. For all that you get, the price is nice - around $47,000.

    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.
