2003 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Yes, it's a convertible, but Toyota and Lexus convertibles seem to not suffer from the number of squeaks and rattles the Boxster does, especially with the Hard Top option. But in a nutshell. no other vehicle handles like the Boxster. When taking turns on twisty roads you will think the car is violating the laws of physics as there is no excitement, the car just TURNS. The phrase "corners as if on rails" is overused, but in the case of the Boxster it's as if the car is riding atop a monorail. You will need to find new roads to conquer as all your old favorite twisties will, to be blunt, become BORING in the Boxster.

Best Features

Engine sound, silky shifter (though nowhere near as nice as the Honda S2000's), instrumentation.

Worst Features

When will Porsche learn steering wheels can telescope AND tilt? More legroom and headroom would be a plus. $735 for FOOTWELL LIGHTING? Option pricing needs to reflect reality...
