Porsche Boxster 2.7 (245bhp) 2d (2006/06) - Owner Review

2 Boots - The front boot is nice and deep so I can fit both mine and my partners travel bags in it and everything else goes in the rear.

Porsche Boxster (04-11)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Hopefully positive things but mainly that I am interested in cars and enjoy a good Sunday drive.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They love it - it gets great feedback from everyone I know (bar the hairdresser remarks lol) and has started a few conversation's with randomers when parking up / fuel station who all want to know how it is.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would - it is a very good car with great handling, a good amount of power and it is usable as an everyday car with the two boots and comfortable ride. Dare I say it the only thing I would consider is going for the newer, 3.4L S model.

What are you likely to buy next?
Unsure - Being 21 I hope to have many years of driving left and although a very different kettle of fish probably a Subaru Impreza RB320 having driven just the WRX the other day.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Lovely - The best part of this car is the handling and the feedback it gives you when driving. The steering is very precise and with the mid-engine it never steps out of line, and on the very rare occasion (ice/wet) its very easy to correct. In terms of power it is quite a quick car, however the lack of torque means it feels a lot slower than it is. On more than one occasion I have looked down at the speedo and been surprised.

What's it like to park?
No problem - Visibility is a bit impaired with the roof up however after buying I have had a reversing camera installed to eliminate the problem.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes - Broken coil spring (Very common) and managed to get it done under warranty.

What's most practical about your car?
2 Boots - The front boot is nice and deep so I can fit both mine and my partners travel bags in it and everything else goes in the rear.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heated Leather Seats - Means I can have the roof down a lot more and enjoy that Flat-6.
