2013 Boxster S

2013 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.4L 6cyl 6M)
I custom ordered a lightly optioned Boxster S with the 6MT. Only the premium package and Bose in Guards Red with a black interior along with red seat belts and the light design package. The model designation was deleted at no charge. The car was built and delivered in 2 months. Price, MSRP 67k and I was happy to get a 5% discount.
Gem of a car. Brilliant 6MT with easy shifting requiring no effort except fingertips. Clutch pedal felt a bit heavy at first but not anymore. Wonderful sounding engine although I haven't taken it past 5000 rpm. Very smooth and deceptive power. Extremely rapid acceleration and in the corners, the car is fantastic. Very strong brakes.
Beautiful car, extremely strong and smooth engine, very strong brakes, precise shifter, very smooth ride even with 19 inch wheels, good fuel economy, very comfortable seats with the premium package. Excellent build quality.
Very highly recommended but go easy with options if you are on a budget. A decently equipped car is 63k.
A simpler set of gauges would be my only suggestion. The multifunction screen is easy but gimmicky.
