Love at first sight

My boxster is not the fastest sports car out there, but boy is it fun to drive. It handles better than any car I have every driven and is not bad on gas.

The car is great! I drive from my home to class mon-fri and not a day goes by when people don't stare! It easily cruses at 100mph and has great highway acceleration in 5th gear. I found that the exhaust wasn't loud enough so I installed one myself and it sounds like a beast. Gas consumption is also amazing for a sports car, I get 26.8 avg. but who really cares! Get it!!!

If you want a smooth

Vehicle: 1999 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible

Don't buy a boxster if you are looking for a comfortable, smooth luxury ride. I didn't realize getting performance (so to speak) meant having my teeth jarred loose over every pothole. I understand a sports car needs to 'feel the road', but do I have to have my face rubbed in it? I guess I have a 'Princess and the Pea' attitude, cuz I hate feeling every little bump in the road. I love the car, the power is 'ok', the styling is amazing, but they need some kind of upgrade or option for 'smooth ride'. For any sports enthusiast that says 'that's just the way sports cars drive' - not exactly true. Corvettes feel SO much more comfortable. But the boxster was a better value for the $'s.

The Boxster is slowly adding features and options. This year, a Classic Package includes metallic paint and all-leather seats, and adds special highlights to the interior. The gas tank is increased from a 12.5- to a 14.1-gallon capacity, and gas-discharge Litronic headlights are optional. All the features in the Sport Package are individually optional this year, and 18-inch wheels are now available.
