There is a great car by roma6789 on 07/16/2009. Trim: 2007 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned 2 years.
Pros: It is always a treat to drive this car. Very tight on turns without braking when everyone else is. Acceleration is more than you can you on U.S. roads. I bought the car in Germany and had the opportunity to drive it to capacity. However, it was diasppointing to be always over the the speed limit in third gear when it came to the U.S.
Cons: Upgraded sound system was disappointing and no direct line for an ipod.
Overall review: I have owned higher end cars, but this has been my favorite car to drive--agreat value for the money. If you have the oppportunity to do an European Delivery, Grand Tour, you will fully appreciate this vehicle and have a fantastic time (especially on the Porsche test track)

Sensibly priced drop top fun. by Butch on 09/24/2013. Trim: 2007 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: bought this "base model" used, with great nav system...better than my Lexus...and 19" wheels. It's just as much fun to drive as the '96 911 Cabriolet it replaced. Who needs snob appeal? It's quick, handles like a real sports car, and sounds great.
Cons: Porsche shamelessly informs me that the tire pressure monitors need to be replaced after about 6 years...at a cost of about $900!!!
Overall review: Really love this car. Would certainly replace it with another Boxster...it is a "real" Porsche.

Porsche boxster by trooperls on 04/23/2008. Trim: 2007 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Fuel mileage and handling are superb. Get over 30mpg on hwy at 65mph. Top can be raised or lowered at 30mph or less.
Cons: Expensive tires and maintenance, weak stereo, PCM 2.1 wont take my cingular phone chip.
Overall review: Well balanced car, well worth the price. Options are expensive so select them carefully as they add up quickly. I put over 15K in options on mine. The 2.7L has all the power you need unless you plan on racing.

a really nice toy by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/29/2008. Trim: 2007 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned 1 year.
Pros: it's exhilarating. sticks like glue. nice exhaust noise. smooth clutch action. quite an attention getter, too.
Cons: i know that the seats must be tight because of the nature of the car. however, i find them uncomfortable for longer trips. ( better in my benz ) also, the bose sound system is finicky and isn't really that great. wipers could do a better job.
Overall review: great car. lots of fun. given what i paid for it i think it's good value.

Fun in the sun. by Rick in the O.C. on 07/18/2007. Trim: 2007 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Excellent styling, great handling and braking, good trunk space for a 2 seater, love the sound of the engine, fun to drive with top down, comfortable seating position, 20 MPG, well built, decent 4 year warranty, on board computer tells tire pressure and other info.
Cons: No MP3 connection, average stereo, no spare tire, service cannot be done just any where, expensive oil changes, key remote control very sensitive, I spend lots of time keeping it show room clean, options are expensive, low to the ground and need to avoid uneven surfaces and speed bumps, need to park far away from other cars, no oil dip stick.
Overall review: Overall, the car has exceeded my expectations. The fun factor is threw the roof and I always look forward to driving it. It has the perfect combination of speed, handling and braking.
