Porsche Boxster (04-11)

Value

4 out of 5

Compared to a 911 or even a Cayman, this is a steal.

Costs

4 out of 5

Cost nothing in nearly two years, other than consumables. Not yet had it's first (two year anniversary) service.

Driving

4 out of 5

Brings a smile to my face every time I turn the key and listen to all that precision machinery whine in the background.

Performance

4 out of 5

Great. Just great. Who needs more power? Not on the public roads you don't. Reckon the chassis would handle a load more for track day work. But in the real world this is fast enough! Road holding and handling on a par with my previous car, a Lotus Elise.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Perfect so far!

Watch out for jealous people, so park carefully! Don't expect traffic to let you out at junctions because of badge inverse snobbery!

Comfort

4 out of 5

It's a sports car so ride is hard but not unduly so. Found it very comfortable, two up, touring around Switzerland for two weeks.

Security

4 out of 5

Cloth top excepted, seems pretty good. Even the interior storage box is alarmed.

Service

5 out of 5

Exceptionally well cared for. You are made to feel as special as the product.

Problems

Minor car park dent in rear wheel arch when parked in Switzerland.

Gearbox
Perfect.

Other
Slight rattle sometimes from hood but will get it looked at next service.
