This Boxster is the most enjoyable car ever owned (which includes a Lexus 400 SL, an MG and a '36 Ford Roadster street rod). Fabulous to drive.... handling out of this world. I was very fortunate to find one with such low mileage and in such great condition. Porsche dealers didn't come close for the price.
My 2008 Boxster S has reached the maximum depreciation- it has already depreciated by almost 50%, and shouldn't really drop much more. But, because these are weekend and fun cars, you can get one with VERY low mileage. Because they were expensive new, they are generally maintained well. And honestly, looking at 2 seater sports cars, there just isn't anything out there as much fun. The Audi TT & BMW Z3 both understeer, the Benz SLK lacks the sporting intentions, and the FRS/BRZ twins are lacking in the HP dept. Even considering Nissan GTR, BMW M3, Audi S4, etc; they are all just bloated compared to the Boxster/Cayman. It may be blasphemous to other P-car owners, but even the 911's I tested weren't as fun as this little mid-engine car!
I have always loved Porsche and while I did have mixed feelings on the Boxster at the onset, just like I had mixed emotions on the 924s and 944s, the Boxster S though grew on me quick and fast. Almost 300 horses on a lighter two seater convertible, mid-engine, rear wheel drive car, it can literally sweep you off your feet. It is a great handling sports car that loves the curves, bends, ups and downs of the road. There are other cars that I love too but the Boxster S? My reality check that offers great value for my hard earned money. I dont really view the Boxster S as a car that would get me from point A to point B, for me, this is a toy that will always get me from point A to point B without missing the X, Y and Zs.
