Such an amazing vehicle. Preforms well. Plenty of space for 4 people. Plus what a head turner! If you are an audiphile, then make sure to listen to the Burmeister system. It is expensive but every time you get into the car and crank up the sound system, you feel like you are at a concert.
This car is the best car I have ever owned. It does not get good mileage in the city, but that is not what I bought this car for. It is our go to highway car. Love to take it to Mammoth to go skiing. It handles the curves better than any other car. You can go 75 around a curve that is marked 55 mph with no problem. Going up a upgrade, no problem. Pass cars like they are standing still. We get around 21 mph on the highway and that is not at 70mph.
Just a fabulous, comfortable driving car. You can drive sedately in comfort or push the car to your limits in the same comfort. It is predictable and precise. The best driving car I've ever owned or driven.
If you want to get excited every time you have to go somewhere. If you want a car that gets 21-23 mpg mixed driving. Buy a Boxster! The handling is excellent. The engine runs beautifully and is matched to the transmission perfectly. It is an automatic and pushing the pedal hard or soft initiates a beautiful synchronized humming on up to your desired speed. Fabulous! This is what a car should be. Sell everything else you have and buy one.
Totally spoiled. This vehicle is so incredible that I can't imagine buying any thing else. The quality of the car is the most amazing thing.
This was my third Porsche (the first two were used 911s) and my first new purchase of one. I finding driving the Boxster to be a far more refined experience compared to my previous Porsche (a 1997 911 Cab). Yet the performance compared to that earlier generation is similar, and the cost far less. A true joy to drive.
2008 Porsche Cayman S, an exhilarating ride!
Pros: the sound and the fury
Cons: nothingI wish I could always have a two-seat porsche coupe in the garage. Unlike other high-end sports cars, it is an everyday, albeit thrilling, ride. Great stereo system, but the rumble of the engine is the best music. The Cayman S hugs the road with tremendous torque, keeping you firmly planted on the ground at any speed. The mid-engine provides front and rear trunk space, enough for luggage or a shopping spree + groceries.
