2003 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 5M)
Review
I feel that the outstanding sense of balance is a Boxster's trademark. It's not the fastest of two seat roadsters (even in S form), but it is surely the most fun to drive. The car's handling instills confidence in even the most tenuous of drivers. Cornering is effortless; the car's center of gravity feels like it is located under your seat. The the suspension communicates precisely what you need to know and it transmits your steering and throttle inputs with a smooth competency. The engine sings at higher RPM and begs to be revved to its limits, that's where the power band is and that's where the whole driving experience comes together, putting a big, goofy grin on your face. It's Heaven.
Favorite Features
Superb suspension--terrific balance between handling and comfort. Sweet revving engine with plenty of power at higher RPM. Plenty of room for big guys for such a small car. Terrific styling. Power convertible top is easy to use. Glass rear window (2003 models & after) aids rear vision. Two trunks!
Suggested Improvements
Vertical seat adjustment (driver's side) has flimsy handle that breaks easily. Poor cup holder design and location. Somewhat difficult to get to the engine bay (takes about 15 minutes to gain access). Expensive repairs and maintenance at Porsche dealers.
