2007 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great car. It's not that fast but it handles like nothing else. Seems to be on rails and takes corners 10 times better than anything I've driven. I only get 20 mpg and that was with conservative driving before my 2000 mile break-in period. The paint chips very easily, more easily than any car I've had. And the seats are extremely narrow at the shoulders. If fact, they hurt and I'm considering some after market seats. Seems you have to be a skinny teenager to fit in the seats. But overall it's a thrill to drive down winding roads.


Best Features

Outrageous handling.


Worst Features

Comfortable seats with wider shoulders. A more durable paint job. The exhaust noise is quietly subtle. Wished it was throatier. Mileage is so-so.

2007 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've had the car since new and have done nothing but enjoy it. It is great fun to drive, I almost always drive on side roads and not the freeway, just keeps the rocks and debris off the front end. The car handles great, feels like it is on rails when going around sharp corners. I am getting very good gas mileage, close to 30, keeping the RPM down helps.


Best Features

Performance, comfort, exterior design


Worst Features

Can't think of much, no car has everything you want.

2007 Porsche Boxster 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I'm in my early 60's and after riding motorcycles for over 20 years I felt it was time be a little safer but still have weekend fun and thrills. I test drove a Vette but once I got behind the wheel of the Porsche Boxster and put it through its paces, I was sold. I drove both the Boxster's standard and S models and the other Porsche, top of the line, models and after comparing the price differences and only driving the Boxster on weekends ( I only have 4500 miles on it) I felt the standard model Boxster was fine with me. For an old guy the Boxster is everything I could want and more!


Best Features

No problems so far. Its fast,agile, corners great, no drifting and great braking. I have the 5 spd trans and still have fun shifting thru the gears. My wife and myself love driving up Calif. Hwy 1 with the top down. The gas mileage is better than I expected. The front and rear trunk areas are ample.


Worst Features

Bose radio can be improved. Buttons for radio, AC, etc are hard to see and push when driving. Needs bluetooth. Have to drive very slowly over bumps and dips, front bumper hits. Had to get use to checking the oil- no dip stick. Hard to get in and out of, but hey it's a sports car!

Review

If you like to drive, then this is the car. Handling, speed and responsiveness are unparalleled. Had a MB SLK 280 and 240. Cute car but nothing like this. While you can't legally get to 150, this car will do it easily and quickly. A blast to drive and a strangely satisfying sound to listen to as you drive. Great purchase.


Best Features

Design and quality of the entire car.


Worst Features

Somehow there should be a spare even a donut would be a welcomed addition.

Review

I bought this car 11/06, it was a special order and now has 7000 miles on it. Prior to this I owned a Mazda Miata, prior to that a Triumph TR3B, before that a MG-TD. So far I have had no problems what so ever, it has been a great little car. My car has standard seats, which are fine, and navigation which is useful but expensive.


Best Features

Handling is superb, acceleration and braking are great, fun to drive. EPA says 32 mpg, I've gotten 30, not bad for a vehicle that will go 160 mph; huge amounts of trunk space, at least compared to other sports cars. Used to think AC and power tops were stupid on sports cars, love 'em now.


Worst Features

No spare and tires are not run flat, front bumper cover is very low, scrapes all the time, I found an aftermarket skid plate which I'm going to install.
