1997 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible


First, this is a fun car. I purchased
this a replacement for my Vette. It
turns just as many heads, but bang-for-
your-buck, the Corvette and S2000 are
clear winners in the price category.
However, this car is far more
reliable. The power is limited and the
exhaust note is soft. A little cramped
inside for the six footer. Minor
problems and it eats tires.

Best Features

Power roof is great, but a bit noisy. Prestigous nameplate and great lines. Lots of cargo room for a two seater. Stick shift knob needs improvement.

Worst Features

Shameful sound system. Can't hear it at speed. Just too expensive when compared to others. Expanded power band. This is truly an entry level Porsche.
