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.
I like your review on the 2000 Boxster. I have a question about the items you listed that had to be replaced. If you don't mind, I would like to know what the price tag for those replacement parts was. I am looking at buying a 2000 Porsche Boxster but I don't want to spend another 5K on repairs. Thanks
