"I've owned a 2006 base boxster for two years. It has been a great car with no mechanical issues. Extremely fun to drive, but lacks power. Wish I would have bought the Boxster S. My intention is to upgrade to a 981S in the future, either a Cayman or Boxster. Recommend buying used, as the new ones with options are extremely expensive."

"After almost 7 years with this car it is still a wonder to drive. The great handling and balance of this mid-engine convertible are remarkable. Power and accelleration are more than adequate. It is surprisingly comfortable for long trips and local errands, and it has excellent cargo capacity in front and rear trunks. Reliability has been excellent, with some warranty covered convertible top problems as the only service issue. My only real disappointment is the gas mileage of 22-23 MPG in mixed driving. I plan on keeping it another 20 years."

"this is my 4th 2 seater I had 2 RX-7s, Z-3 and now the boxster s and by far the best car. I put a fabspeed exhaust in it and now its even better. I drive it in DE events all the time now and its so much fun. ppl say it eats up rear tires fast but that's because everyone drives it hard because its so much fun to drive. Mine has PDK which I love, I can downshift on the turn at the track and fly right out."
