"finish, fit, materials of high quality. This is a very responsive car and a lot of fun to drive. I own a Boxster S 6 speed. I feel very safe at all speeds. I have driven a 911 track car & a Cayman S, all of which are amazing cars. The breaking ability on all three cars plus the handling in tight turns is truly a rush!"

"I have owned this car for the last 100,000 miles ( bought it w/ 28,000 miles). Great fun car. I have driven it from Orlando, Fl to Los Angeles, CA with no problems ( 6300 miles) Of course you have to maintain the car as you would any sports car. Love the look of it and love the handling. Reliable, fun and easy to drive with the mid engine design."
