2003 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After owning a Firebird Firehawk
Convertible, I decided to test drive a
Boxster S. What a difference. While it
lacked the same straight-line power, it
makes up for it 100 fold in handling. I
test drove every major convertible,
Honda S2000, Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes
and none of them come close the
handling of this car. Even the 911,
which is an awesome vehicle does not
quite handle like the Boxster! If you
want absolutely the best handling most
fun car to drive try a Boxster S. The
fit and finish is superbe. To quote a
famous movie line: "Porsche, there's no
substitute!" There is nothing else like
it, short of a 911!


Best Features

By far and away itd handling is its best feature. Other favorites include the quality convertible top with glass window and one of the most innovative cup holders ever.


Worst Features

The biggest problem with Porsche is that everything is an option. One suggestion, put the speedo in the center of the dash and not the tachometer. A small issue that you quickly get over.

2003 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Excellent torque. Drives effortlessy and
has very comfortable seats, even after
several hours. Brakes are the best I've
ever experienced. The total package is a
great confidence builder. My car is
still new but if it continues to perform
as it does now I'll be one happy camper.


Best Features

Horsepower, torque, body style, handling.


Worst Features

Better battery management to extend its life before going dead due to inactivity.

2003 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

It provides a "Wow" driving experience
that doesn't go away with ownership.
From the first test drive to my drive
to work today this car continues to
provide a feeling of precision and
balance. Suspension is very versatile
and goes between sport/touring and
sport/race very well. This one blows
the Z4 away in the driving experience
I tested both extensively and have
never looked back. So much Porsche for
so little cash!


Best Features

Driving experience. Road feel. Mid- Engine design. Cornering. Suspension. Appearance. Interior is cozy. Heated seats. Cup holders work fineand stow neatly.


Worst Features

This car should have a higher base price and have more included on the base model. Porsche's decision to have a base model that must be built up may work in a utilitarian state but in my area owners have come to expect a lot in the base model.

Review

I love this car.It's the best car
ever.I think that everybody needs to
get one of these cars.They have
excellent handling-even on slick roads-
,they run great, and the design is
great also.the only thing that I do not
like about mine is that it is a 5 speed
I would much rather have an
automatic.Thank you for reading this
review.


Best Features

Everything!!!!!!!!


Worst Features

Make an automatic version and you would sell more cars.

Review

What a fun car! It is definetley
extremely fast, but I would like to see
300 horsepower in this little car in
2004, then it would blow any car off
the road. I always have fun burning
old corvetes and people with cars they
think are hooked up. I always do 0-
60mph's and my best recent one was a
5.38 which is awsome and fasttttt, my
best 1/4 mile was 13.39 which is also
great. Get on the road with one today
it rockkks.


Best Features

Engine sound is awsome, great sound system, cool style, also a huggge chick magnet


Worst Features

Nothing, except maybe a little more horsepower or torque. Unstopable car if it had that.
