Fun, When It Runs
By Michael on
1997 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible
This car has a terrible engine design. The shafts explode on the inside of the engine and cost thousands of dollars a piece. Porsche just installs new engines at $20,000 plus labor a piece, so they don't mind. It is NOT UNCOMMON for a Boxster, of ANY year to blow an engine before 80,000 miles. The problem is that Porsche recommends changing the oil only once every 15,000 miles. Unfortunately, most people who drive these cars aren't mechanically inclined and actually believe Porsche and then wait 15,000 miles. Problem is, if this is a weekend car, it takes two or three YEARS before they do their next oil change. The engine is practically shot by that time. If you've bought a Boxster, change your oil. If you haven't, don't.
Favorite Features
Porsche stability control.
Suggested Improvements
The engines are very unreliable and outlandishly expensive to anyone who doesn't have an EXTRA $30,000 a YEAR to spend on repairs that are inevitable.
