1998 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible


Yeah a Porsche, I thought I was getting
a great deal with a 98 and less then
25k miles. Thank goodness I didn't pay
that much, because the first trip to
the dealer for a tuneup set me back
$1500 and was told that I would need a
new starter soon. Then a week later, I
was putting the roof down and the back
window split down the middle. The
Porsche dealer said it was my fault for

it was 10C. This is a great little

Best Features

Driving and trunk space! The car handles exceptionally well on the corners and on the autobahn! 125 miles is like nothing for this little car!

Worst Features
