The Most Fun Car I Have Ever Owned
By NorCal Enthusiast on


2001 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


I've owned many sports cars in my time -- and convertibles too -- like my MG, and more recenly like my Miata. Both were fun. But graduating to the Boxster is like one day waking up with super powers. It is just that startling. The handling is sublime, the road feel and gearing are wonderful, the whole package is great. The torque curve is well, nonexistent. The engine and gearing are such that you just accelerate smoothly and very quickly. It has been a year, and I am still madly in love with driving this car. It is demanding to drive -- yes - can take your total concentration, but if you live in an area with twisty roads and a benign climate, the it rewards you on a daily basis.

Best Features

My car has way to many options including an upgraded surround sound system (original equipment), from Porsche. It is one of my favorite features. It also has rain sensor wipers -- also a real convenience.

Worst Features

I get some squeaks around the window gaskets with the top up. Apparently it is an issue on some cars.
