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

Review

After owning a Firebird Firehawk Convertible, I decided to test drive a Boxster S. What a difference. While it lacked the same straight-line power, it makes up for it 100 fold in handling. I test drove every major convertible, Honda S2000, Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes and none of them come close the handling of this car. Even the 911, which is an awesome vehicle does not quite handle like the Boxster! If you want absolutely the best handling most fun car to drive try a Boxster S. The fit and finish is superbe. To quote a famous movie line: "Porsche, there's no substitute!" There is nothing else like it, short of a 911!

Best Features

By far and away itd handling is its best feature. Other favorites include the quality convertible top with glass window and one of the most innovative cup holders ever.

Worst Features

The biggest problem with Porsche is that everything is an option. One suggestion, put the speedo in the center of the dash and not the tachometer. A small issue that you quickly get over.
