Review of the 2004 Porsche Boxster

  • A midengine design and classic Porsche styling, not to mention sublime steering and brakes, give the Boxster a unique combination of traits that few cars can match at this price point.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Supreme handling characteristics, plenty of usable power in "S" format, relatively generous cargo capacity, fast power top operation.

  • Cons

    Costly options push price up quickly, interior not all that impressive considering the price.

  • What's New for 2004

    For 2004, the Boxster S adds a sports exhaust system to the options list. The Boxster and Boxster S are also available in two new colors…

Amazing car to drive

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

I've had a Mitsubishi GS, SRT, Turbo charged Passat among others. Even though the others were brand new or close to it when bought, I traded my 2008 Passat for a 2004 Boxster S and cannot be happier. It is a blast to drive, super super fast. Not as fast as the M3 or Vette I test drove, but way more of a head turner. Top down is sick. It's quite the pick and the engine sounds sweet. It is quite the head turner, a blast to drive, and my daily driver. Just could not drive a 4 door to work anymore.




I love my 2004 boxster!

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche Boxster 2dr Roadster (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

I have owned multiple foreign and domestic sports cars and have never owned a vehicle that gives me such pleasure to drive as my carrara white 2004 Porsche Boxster! This car was designed as a modern version of the Porsche 550 Spyder of the 1950s and it is a blast to drive as I'm sure that car was/is. It has the technology to make even long drives comfortable and the Bose sound system is the best I have ever heard (home or in a car. It even beats my 2007 BMW 335i Harmon Kardon system). This car gets looks everywhere I go and rightly so-It is a beauty. I would strongly encourage anyone to purchase this car-you won't regret it!

Vehicle: 2004 Porsche Boxster 2dr Roadster (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

This car has been very reliable. It is very quick and handles like it is on tracks. This has to be one of the best cars out there for the money. The quality of the car is excellent. The Bose stereo system sounds great as well as the sound of the engine. I'm very happy with this car and will not but any other brand than Porsche.

Also, on a Boxster you can pretty much count on clutch failure around 80,000 miles. In fact, you should budget for it....
