We have seven cars, including a Honda S2000, Jaguar XJ8, and the American muscle classic 96 Impala SS. The Boxster is amazingly balanced, and really easy to drive quickly -- with the tiptronic, it's my wife's favorite drive now, and she goes "top down" on all suitable days. I like the Jag for traveling, and enjoy the motorcycle like qualities of the S2000, but have to marvel at Porsche's little roadster!

Owned it from new; only car I kept this long (7+ years), it works fine as a daily driver not just for weekends. Can be expensive to own in terms of dealer maintenance costs and out or warranty work. Delivers on the promised fun quotient and design aged very well, still very current vs. 2010 model. True sports convertible, not just for boulevard.

Great choice for sports car convertible; very pricey new (keep options list down !) but worth the xtra money in the long run. More comfortable and useful size than it looks. Bought mine new and have used it as daily driver/only car for a number of years. Out of warranty repairs expenses can be high, but maintenance is just once a year for low mileage cars. Hard to give this car up, makes for a great 2nd car keeper once its past its prime.
Minor visual updates, including revised front and rear fascias and gray (versus the previous yellow) tint for the turn signal lenses, along with a boost in output keep the Boxster relevant in the face of faster, more refined rivals.

I am taking the last few careful steps before I own a Porsche. I am debating between a 2005 Boxster Conv and 2003 911(996) Carrera cab(RWD). My heart is for the latter (cant afford a new 911 though). ...
