1997 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible


waited 11 months after placing pre- production order for 1st year Boxter. I drove it to work everyday for 4 years and just as a fun 2nd car for the last 3 years: hence, the very low milage. very reliable, had a freaky problem with the folding top after warranty expired. Bill was $2,000. Porsche Corp. was actually embarrased and paid it in full! Impressive!

Best Features

great exhaust note at high revs. Amazing cornering. decent gas mileage, esp. since premium is required. Minimal wind buffeting with top down

Worst Features

sound system in adequate with top down. even though it's quite peppy, after a while I wished for faster zero to 60. Highway passing is great, however. BoxterS or the new Cayman might better satisfy my "need for speed"
