Have driven and owned many cars in my life, and this little Boxster is by far the most fun to drive. The only one I have driven that comes close was a 1965 Jag XKE coupe. The only negative was the IMS bearing issue that I noticed before it became a catastrophe, and had replaced with a LN Engineering ceramic ball bearing IMS bearing. Worth every penny. There's nothing like the growl of that boxster engine at 5500 rpms, or the handling on turns. You haven't experienced the pleasure of real driving until you take one of theses babies out for a spin.

This is one of the world's greatest sports cars. The handling is both confident and communicative. The steering feedback is fantastic. The chassis is extremely stiff, especially for a convertible. The engine note is intoxicating and the power, although not amazing, is still very strong. More than enough to get you into trouble. It's relatively light compared to it's contemporaries (and the 911). I love this car. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

While I agree with all the positive comments about the Boxster my bought new 2000 suffered a bearing failure at 22,000 miles and five years which required total engine replacement. Factory 3/36 had run out. No consideration from Porsche. Known problem. I could have bought many more Porsches in my life but never again.

Bought my car from 2nd owner. Great emerald green color captured my attention. Very fast and handles like what you would expect from a sports car. Always wanted one and bought it now since I can protect it from inclement weather by hiding it in my garage.

I bought the Box'r in Feb of 08 with 16000 KM. Always loved Porsche so when I found this low mileage perfect example I bought it on the spot. I put 5500 KM on it last year with not one problem. It is a fun car only (I have a daily driver) which makes this car feel fresh every time I drive it...I love it. It has very good power and the handling characteristics are absolutely unparalleled. I go top down everywhere...favorite time is early in the morning. Best time of year is in the Canadian fall with a good chill in the air with the seat heaters on and the leaves falling...it does not get any better than that!!!!!!!

I've driven many sports cars. Though I'm only sixteen, my friends and I drive exotic and expensive cars. Such other cars consist of the Honda s2000, Cadillac cts, and the Audi tt Quattro. However, as fun as these cars are, all of them fade in comparison to the boxster. I myself received a boxster 2.7 for my sweet sixteen. The styling is beautiful, and the performance is unmatched for its class. If you're looking for a fun-to-drive, sporty convertible, THIS IS THE CAR FOR YOU.

It's hard to do better.

This car was purchased about a month ago with around 34,000 miles on the clock, but I have to say that it feels and drives like a brand new car. The steering is direct and full of feel. The engine pulls urgently from 3,500rpm and sounds fantastic doing it, and the 6-speed manual is a model of precision. The seats are comfortable, and the interior still looks great even eight years after the car was built. I would have no trouble recommending a Boxster S to anyone in the market for a two-seat drop top.

We live in Eugene Oregon, 45 miles from the coast. That's 45 curvy miles. What an absolute blast it is go there and back. Riding north and south on the coast highway, with the roof off, side windows up, and a little floor heat going - you can't beat it! The handling and accelleration is unbelievable!

The Boxster is great car - major fault/major advantage is that it can make you feel like you are a much better driver than you really are. The car is almost without vices - but it does go through rear tires as though they were made of butter.

Owning a Boxster has been everything I thought it would be and more. Nothing beats cruising around with the top down on a beautiful day! I drive my car every day, rain or shine (it's my primary vehicle), and still get psyched each time I see it (it's really mine!) and get inside and start driving. I would recommend definitely getting the car checked out by an independent (not affiliated with the dealer/seller) mechanic before you buy. Although the Boxster is a great car, it's not cheap to own, and you want to make sure the one that you buy is in good shape. I haven't had any major problems with mine, although the top did get stuck in the down position, but was easy and relatively cheap to fix.

This Boxster S is my second Boxster. I traded up from a 1998 Boxster for more power, and I was not disappointed. It has great handling and road feel with good comfort (for a sports car). My trip from Oklahoma to Boston and back was a delightful ride, and fast. Its reliability has been great - this is a bulletproof car, very solid. The convertible top has held up well and shows very little wear.

My 2000 Porsche Boxster S is a fun car. It's great with the top down. It does not have enough power though. the custom 18" wheels make a difference. It's quite a head turner for little money. Its aerodynamics are not great at high speeds. To enjoy speed or racing, it requires custom body kits, which are extremely expensive. I consider it as a charming go-kart with great handling, but poor performance. Don't get the tiptronic transmission. Shiftning makes this car more fun.

The best roadster. I've owned a number of sports cars and this is by far the best. Fast, quiet (for a sports car), comfortable, and mid engine handling, this car is the complete package. The car handles impressively on any road surface, except the most extreme pot holes roads, wet or dry pavement it does not matter. Comfortable on long cruises (10 states in 8 days inlcuding the Tail of the Dragon, 318 turns in 11 miles, Cherohala Skyway, Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge PArkway). World class car with world class fit, finish and build quality. My used Boxster blows away my new Honda s2000, different class of car. Buy to experience the P-car perma-grin.

Porsche has always made a well built car but the Boxster is very well bulit... the design is flawless I always get looks in this car the interior is sporty but a little dull. This car delivers most of it all except the power its a little slugish but not bad power for only 217 ponies. This car is what you would call a Porsche cruiser that can get up when you need to and get out of the way....and the canyons well their really no match for Boxsters.

Can it be that good and different and cost so much to justify owning one? For me the answer is a resounding YES! It's fun, fast, superlative handling AND extremely reliable (After 4 yrs, always once start and drive). No other cars feel like it, the combination of speed AND comfort, it gets downright luxurious cruising the 2lane country byways, utter smoothness and quiet top down/side windows up. Simply amazing, truly one of life's great pleasure.

Before I bought the S, I looked and test drove a new Honda S2000 & Nissan 350Z, and a used BMW Z4, Boxster S, Audi TT, and Mercedes SLK. The characteristics important to me were: 1.Fun, 2. Style 3. Overall driving feel 4. Performance 5. Cost The Boxster S edged out the S2000 even with cost factored in. Bottom-line -- None can quite measure up to the overall performance, feel, and style of the Boxster S. Now I know why Porsche says “There is no substitute” – it’s true.

This car is the most fun to drive car I have ever owned. It isn't the quickest off the line and it isn't cheap. However, it is the best handling stock performance car available for under 55K and it's a Porsche. The stability (even is adverse conditions) is remarkable and it has been reliable to boot thus far. Not cheap to maintain, but given the fact that maintenance is due every 15,000 miles makes the high price reasonable.

Car has never not started. Always fun to drive. Ride is a little rough, but that's a choice for the handling - which is superlative. The only drawbacks are: 1) for a tall person (over 6') the seat adjustment results in one's head being capable of hitting the roll bar in an accident. 2) Those non-glass rear windows (not in current model) are difficult to keep looking perfect.

I studied and shopped for this car for literally months before I found the right one. Ocean blue/metropol with almost all of the bells/whistles. My patience was rewarded by the euphoria of a fun-to-drive head-turner that will run all day without breathing hard. The Tiptronic is great for both wife and me (bad backs)and we look forward to years of fun with our Boxster.

I have owned the car for 3 yrs. It is head-turner with plenty of power. People who complain about lack of power, perhaps need to use the Tiptronic to their advantage. It is truly absolute fun. Yes, you can get a more powerful engine with less money but that is not PORSCHE. These are show- and-tell toys for big boys.

After looking at all of the possible convertables on the market, it became clear the Boxster was by far the superior auto - design, performance, comfort and value. I gave a hard look at the Honda S2000 and it was nice, but it just didn't come up to the magic of this car!

After a Merc, BMW, Corvette an S4 I was fed up with high cost motors. I waited for the Crossfire, although it looked great, the cost was high the dealer wanted 10k over MSRP not to mention resale value. Here I am a proud owner of a 2nd hand Boxster. The car has legs, an amazing ammount of room, feels solid and the fuel economy is a dream. This is a safe buy, good resale value, high performance, low insurance commuter vehicle. Why risk it, get a second hand porsche and live the life !

I entered my 30's and decided to leave behind all that went with my 20's especially, my '95 toyota camry. Am I ever glad that I did. Driving the Porsche Boxster S is like being transported from the mundane to the extraordinary. I'm afraid that I will overuse the convertible top. I've yet to feel even a bit of buyer's remorse.

I love this vehicle. It has plenty of power, especially compared to the anemic regular boxster. Most people do not know the difference between the S model and the regular boxster, but if you ever get the chance to compare them head-to-head, you surely will remember the differences (handling, power, looks).

Just bought mine used. Took it on a 1500 drive from Portland, OR to Denver. I had more fun than a person has a right to be. I couldn't stop smiling! I rode most of the way at around 100mph and topped out at 125mph. The Boxster S purred like a kitten! Can't imagine why Boxsters cost less than 911? I drove my friend's 911 and although I like it, I found the Boxster just as fun!

From the steering feel, to the velcro handling, to the engine melody ... nothing about the driving experience disappoints. Only two problems have cropped up: A minor oil leak, and a faulty sending unit that left my drop-top in the 'dropped' position. Both fixed under warantee. Regular maintenace at the dealer, however, will cost a bundle. Still, for the money, I have yet to find a car that brings as big a smile to my face as the Boxster.

To date, this has been a remarkable car. I am still somewhat surprised - almost alarmed - that it only requires service every 15000 miles (including oil changes!). The vehicle is solid, easily kept, and drives like flight. It has an extremely quiet engine - and a throaty voice that comes out at 4k- 5k RPM, which is where your real neck- snapping power is. This vehicle eats noisy custom Hondas without breaking a sweat, despite their drivers' testosterone rush at the sight of you. The joy here isn't in your fast takeoffs - it's in the neck-snapping power you've got in high RPMs. In one word: Wow.

This is my first Porsche and the one thing I didn't anticipate was that the car would be so well made and reliable. The car had no flaws whatsoever when I received it and to this day, I've had only very, very minor repairs. The car is an absolute pleasure to drive, it performs well and runs as smoothly and as tightly as the day I got it which is amazing considering I drive it every day to work in heavy traffic, starting and stopping constantly. The car currently has 36,000 miles on it and I have no hesitation to buy it outright when my lease is up in a couple of months. I would highly recommend this car to anyone!

Simply Awsome, art meets performance

I have owned many high end cars but nothing comes close to the performance and quality of the boxster s. If you are thinking of buying a regular boxster ... do youself a favor and drive the S model and you will see that the only difference is not the 's' on the back of the trunk. The S model delivers all the tourqe the regular boxster was missing + the acceleration and handeling of one of the best built cars in the world. I have had no problems thus far and every time I drive it I feel more and more at one with this machine.. If you drive one .. you will buy one .. .simple as that.

Fun in the sun, but lacks torque

My Boxster has been a great car. The most confidence inspiring and best handling car that I've ever owned. I also have a Viper GTS and the Boxster instills much more confidence - though it doesn't have the torque or sex appeal of the Viper. Still, it's a fun car - very useful for every day driving. I used to own a Miata - which was a great car, but was frustrating to drive because of its lack of power. Think of the Boxster as a better Miata. It goes faster and can handle the turns faster - but the over-all driving experience is very simiilar to the Miata. Whether the Boxster is worth the extra 20K over a Miata could be well argued, but hey, it's a Porsche.

Fun car
