I really wanted an Elise, but ...
I bought the Silver Bullet with 43K miles on her.
I have had the base model 2007 Boxster for 3 months/ 7000 miles.
I have had no mechanical issues with the car.
I did have to replace the front brakes and rear main seal but that is to be expected in a used Boxster of this age.
The black leather interior is quite nice, there are
no cracks even at 50K miles.
Interior comfort features are somewhat as space is at a premium.
Build quality, fit and finish are better than I expected.
I am really starting to like this car.
It makes me smile...
when I see it, when I drive it, and when the girls holla at me drivin by.
I sometimes turn the Bose stereo off in favor of the exhaust note.
The car is quite practical for its impracticality - the two trunks are quite handy for grocery runs or luggage.
The Boxster is not the fastest car to 60, but it handles great.
I do wish it had just a teensy bit more power (or less weight) or that I could have afforded the S model.
She leaks just a lil bit on the passenger side somewhere.
I gotta get that checked.
Maintenance items can be pricey.
Potential buyers - have the vehicle you are interested in inspected.
This is car Nirvana.
It's a tight squeeze for the 6' 4" or taller people; but it fits me just fine :)
