"Chose the S over a BMW M Roadster! A bit slower but better handling, mpg, stowage (2 trunks makes a diff) and head turning status. Total service over 21 months = 1 Qt. Mobil 1. 28 mpg is routine on a 65 trip on the A.C. Xway to the Jersey Shore. Get the Bose sound system and 19" wheels and you'll have a fantastic ride."
"The handling is incredible, the comfort is top-nothc, and the style turns heads. Overall, I am very pleased with this vehicle. It holds up well over the miles, short and long distance travel, and as far as maintenance goes...it is an extremely sturdy car. VERY reliable."
"Great fun, hard to not have a lead foot with the sound the engine makes and the go it has. Dunno how much of a difference there is between an S and basic (haven't driven the S yet), but this still has plenty of go-go-power :)
Suspension can be a bit stiff for everyday driving, but it's like riding on rails on the tough corners. Plus, I live in LA, and the top down feature is just too awesome :)"
"This is my 3rd Boxster and the only one I purchased new. It is kept in a garage under a car cover. I wash it thoroughly after each use. From a performance standpoint, you would need to spend thousands more to equal it. The car is dark blue (I forget the name of the color, but it isn't navy) with a black top and black interior. I also included the wood package in the center console, 19" wheels, Porsche logo on the seat head rests and the BOSE stereo which is the best I've ever had in a car. On the downside, the tires only last around 7-10,000 miles and cost a fortune. This is definately a true high end sports car that actually is reliable! I could have purchased the 911, but prefer the lines of the BoxsterS."
"Bought a Tiptronic this time do to some athletic injury issues and it's works for me. I had manuals prior to and am glad Porsche developed the Tiptronic system. Not as quick off the mark but when shifting with the paddle shifters is still enjoyable and rewarding. Love owning Porsche's."
"This was a gift from my husband and i just love it. This car will turn heads - theirs and yours. Good acceleration, excellent handling and just an overall fun ride.
(Great fun for a girl to take to car shows!) Great Sunday driver and minimal maintenance. All it has needed in 15 months is a little Mobil 1 oil. And yes, the trunk will hold your golf clubs if you put your driver in the front seat! If you're going to buy, go for the Boxster S - the extras are worth it!"
