Over 100k and still a fantastic drive!

2005 Porsche Boxster 2dr Roadster (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


I purchased this beauty in April (2011). I Dr. traded it in at 100k miles. He did all the service religiously, and it works fantastically. The manual spoiler switch was broken when I bought it but a part from SunCoast Porsche fixed it. I do the work myself which keeps maint. costs down. I am a simple guy with a simple income but I feel rick driving the Boxster around town. I never put the top up, (I drive an 05' IS300 on rainy days) and I still get 24-25 MPG. I LOVE this thing!

Best Features

Dual auto up/down windows. Smooth power roof, smooth acceleration and great handling.

Worst Features

I think the 6-speed should be standard. A standard maint. position for top so I don't have to guess when I need to access engine. A spare tire, even a doughnut would be nice.
