All I can say is wow! I purchased a used Porsche Boxster for 10k in Feb/Mar 2010, and could not have been happier. The car now has over 108,000 miles on it, and runs like a champ. It easily got up to 122 mph while passing cars driving down that middle lane* (stupid thing to do, but it was just too easy) without realizing how fast the car was going. Driving country roads in East Texas at high speeds (90 mph around 40 mph curves and 120 mph ++ on straight-aways) is a breeze.* apparently there are 2 radiators and it holds 7 gallons of coolant. My water pump went out while I was on the freeway and all that extra fluid saved my motor. *I no longer drive like I mentioned above, but had to share
Step on the gas and the car takes off with an amazing tone from the exhaust. I love my tan leather interior and one press fast up/down windows.
The car causes you to do stupid things like drive 122 mph because it is too easy. The radio and speakers are the worse I have ever heard, but the looks and speed make up for it! Why did they put a plastic window in a 2001 model car? $350 for a water pump and $450 labor to install really hurts.
