Review of the 2000 Porsche Boxster

  • With the new Boxster S, Porsche's junior sports car moves up another level in performance...and price.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Increased horsepower, excellent handling and steering, suited for almost any driving situation.

  • Cons

    Plastic rear window, expensive base price and options.

  • What's New for 2000

    The big news for 2000 is the Boxster S. This more powerful version of the Boxster features a bigger engine that generates 250 horsepower. The regular Boxster (if you can call it that) also gets a horsepower boost in 2000, going from 201 to 217. Both models feature upgraded interior materials and new exterior colors.

Excellence in motion

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible

Have driven and owned many cars in my life, and this little Boxster is by far the most fun to drive. The only one I have driven that comes close was a 1965 Jag XKE coupe. The only negative was the IMS bearing issue that I noticed before it became a catastrophe, and had replaced with a LN Engineering ceramic ball bearing IMS bearing. Worth every penny. There's nothing like the growl of that boxster engine at 5500 rpms, or the handling on turns. You haven't experienced the pleasure of real driving until you take one of theses babies out for a spin.




One of the world's best

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible

This is one of the world's greatest sports cars. The handling is both confident and communicative. The steering feedback is fantastic. The chassis is extremely stiff, especially for a convertible. The engine note is intoxicating and the power, although not amazing, is still very strong. More than enough to get you into trouble. It's relatively light compared to it's contemporaries (and the 911). I love this car. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

Never again

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible

While I agree with all the positive comments about the Boxster my bought new 2000 suffered a bearing failure at 22,000 miles and five years which required total engine replacement. Factory 3/36 had run out. No consideration from Porsche. Known problem. I could have bought many more Porsches in my life but never again.




There is no substitute!

Bought my car from 2nd owner. Great emerald green color captured my attention. Very fast and handles like what you would expect from a sports car. Always wanted one and bought it now since I can protect it from inclement weather by hiding it in my garage.




Boxster spendar

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible

I bought the Box'r in Feb of 08 with 16000 KM. Always loved Porsche so when I found this low mileage perfect example I bought it on the spot. I put 5500 KM on it last year with not one problem. It is a fun car only (I have a daily driver) which makes this car feel fresh every time I drive it...I love it. It has very good power and the handling characteristics are absolutely unparalleled. I go top down everywhere...favorite time is early in the morning. Best time of year is in the Canadian fall with a good chill in the air with the seat heaters on and the leaves falling...it does not get any better than that!!!!!!!




My first car

Vehicle: 2000 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible

I've driven many sports cars. Though I'm only sixteen, my friends and I drive exotic and expensive cars. Such other cars consist of the Honda s2000, Cadillac cts, and the Audi tt Quattro. However, as fun as these cars are, all of them fade in comparison to the boxster. I myself received a boxster 2.7 for my sweet sixteen. The styling is beautiful, and the performance is unmatched for its class. If you're looking for a fun-to-drive, sporty convertible, THIS IS THE CAR FOR YOU.
