I purchased my 2005 Boxster in 2006 (then 9,000 miles; now 64,000).
I have not looked back since.
It is surprisingly comfortable for such a tight-handling car.
It looks and feels as mean as it sounds.
And to my surprise, maintenance issues have been few (air/oil separator replaced).
I could not ask for a better all-around sportcars.
I highly recommend the model and year.
Cockpit feel; sleek styling; easy convertible use; responsive handling; plenty of power; relatively modest cost; low maintenance; muffler sound; fuel use; and (of all things) the cup holders.
Any suggestion that Porsche do away with the stick.
