Nothing base about it

2006 Porsche Boxster 987 white - , 12/08/2014

Fortunate to find a 2006 with 9700 miles! While driving it feels "authoritative". Previous owner (just 1) loaded it up with extras. This one is more lux than sport. That said... Driving it it pure thrill. I'm sure the S version is even better but this has all the boost I ask for with more reserve. Porsche. Expensive to own? Yep. Practical? Nope. Worth it? You better believe it.

porsche boxster s vs bmw 3 series

2006 Porsche Boxster bmw fan - Los Angeles, CA 04/09/2011

It's a different kind of car but this is my frame of reference for comparing my boxster s. I love the 3 series for its practicality combined with performance. It's a sedan with plenty of room for 4 and a spacious trunk, yet it has that sportscar side you can access in maneuvering around other cars on the LA freeways, and in driving on the tortuous socal canyon roads. The Boxster, in particular the S, is clearly weighted more toward performance, with its growling engine, situated just behing the driver's seat, that you can hear and feel when engaging the throttle. Nevertheless, with the Tiptronic auto transmission, it has enough practical features (2 cup holders, adequate trunk space, a easy and rapid operating power softtop to be an everyday commuter car in warm southern CA. Its suspension, with the standard S wheels, is not soft, but not punishing either. With the top down it's a delightful experience in warm weather, even on the freeway at speeds up to 100mph, where with the optional wind blocker, the wind turbulence is tolerable. With the softtop up, the engine noise is amplified, and will take some getting used to for those who are used to quieter engines like the BMW inline 6 that I had become assustomed to. With the top up, blind spot visibility seems limited and I found this somewhat disconcerting, until I realized that in a 2 seater the blind spot is inherently quite small anyway. Front and rear visibility are fine. The base climate control system is fairly easy to operate, though unlike most cars in this price range, it lacks a automatic temperature setting, forcing you to manually adjust the temperature and fan setting using 2 levers. There is enough storage space in the back to hold a large suitcase. The front luggage compartment, located under the hood is similar in size, but deeper/narrower. All in all, if you are looking for a performance oriented convertible you won't be disappointed with the Boxster. And with the Tiptronic option, it has enough practicality to be an everyday commuter car in a warm climate. Those looking for a smooth, quiet ride with the top up, or for a plush interior loaded with convenience features, should probably look elsewhere.
