1997 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible


I have had my 1997 Boxster for 5 years, I have a blast with this car, the engine note is music to anyone lucky enough to hear it. This car has been very reliable, this was the first year for this car and it was made in Germany, newer ones are made out of the country and still have great quailty and reliability. This car is great for a get away weekend or a nice sunday drive. This car also functions well as a daily driver. Two trunks give you plenty of room for shopping and getaways! On the track this car comes alive, with it's mid engine design, it gives even the most basic driver's a sure footed feel. The best roadster of the bunch, this car is very well regarded in Europe.

Best Features

Very fast convertible top, 12 seconds and the top is down. This makes using the convertible super easy, no need to get out of the car, just stop and push and button and away you go.

Worst Features

A true classic, needs nothing. Those looking for MORE power, look to the Boxster S.
