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