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


This is my first Porsche and a dream come true. I love every minute of driving it, washing it, and detailing it. I was afraid of getting a Porsche for all the horror stories you hear; expensive, costly maintenance, costly parts, unreliable etc. I bought it used with a 3/36,000 premium warranty and only 24K miles at under $28k! You can't get an average Japanese or American car for that price. After checking Consumer Reports and JD Power and Associates ratings, I decided to get it. Get it and you won't regret it. Life is too short not to have fun. Just cover your basis with a warranty, low mileage, and Carfax, then live life!

Best Features

Design, exhaust note, color, and performance.

Worst Features

Reduce wind noise and increase seating length. Even at 5'6", I find myself cramped at times. The wind deflector helps but you still get some wind at the top of your head. I don't mind but my wife hates it.
