2009 Porsche Boxster S 2dr Convertible (3.4L 6cyl 6M)


This is the best balanced car I've ever owned with no handling faults I can even think of. It's just an all around fun car to drive and care for. Oil changes and other maintenance is a bit expensive, but the maintenance intervals are spaced far enough apart that although each service is rather expensive ($450+), they don't come often enough to be excessive - especially for a car of this level. Like a loyal hunting dog, it just begs to go and play every time I walk into the garage.

No unscheduled problems, so far with 32K miles on the odo.

Best Features

Incredibly fun to own and drive and care for. It's a Porsche. I don't mean for that to sound effete, but until you own one, you won't fully understand. I didn't either... The Porsche social scene through the PCA (Porsche Club of America) is active, fun, and very helpful and friendly.

Worst Features

The CDR-30 telephone interface is not well designed or user friendly. Porsche should have selected a better vendor for this hardware. Automatic headlights would be a nice feature. The turn signal audio could be louder to help alert you that your turn signals are still on.
