Fun, but costly...

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


I was fortunate enough to own this vehicle for about 18 months. I bought it in 2007 with 5500 miles on it and put close to 20k on it in the year and a half that I owned it. It was near new! This car is incredibly fun to drive and the pick up is amazing. Being 6'4" tall, I was reasonably comfortable, but on long trips, a good stretch after a couple of hours is helpful. My overall ownership experience was OK, but it was rather expensive to own. I probably wouldn't buy another Porsche again.

Best Features

The looks, the power, the quickness, the convertible top! I opted for this year because in 2003, the back window was glass instead of plastic.

Worst Features

This is the part that makes owning a vehicle like this painful. Little things that go wrong and break are extremely costly! Fortunately I had an ext. warranty most of the time that I owned it, but buyer beware! You'll spend a minimum of $300 every time you take it in... but it's a Porsche, right?
