Disappointing number of rattles

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


Yes, it's a convertible, but Toyota and
Lexus convertibles seem to not suffer
from the number of squeaks and rattles
the Boxster does, especially with the
Hard Top option.

But in a nutshell. no other vehicle
handles like the Boxster. When taking
turns on twisty roads you will think the
car is violating the laws of physics as
there is no excitement, the car just
TURNS. The phrase "corners as if on
rails" is overused, but in the case of
the Boxster it's as if the car is riding
atop a monorail.

You will need to find new roads to
conquer as all your old favorite
twisties will, to be blunt, become
BORING in the Boxster.

Best Features

Engine sound, silky shifter (though nowhere near as nice as the Honda S2000's), instrumentation.

Worst Features

When will Porsche learn steering wheels can telescope AND tilt? More legroom and headroom would be a plus. $735 for FOOTWELL LIGHTING? Option pricing needs to reflect reality...
