Disappointment by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/21/2010. Trim: 2009 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It draws attention. It has a pleasant engine sound. It has name appeal. Good warranty.
Cons: It's got poor ground clearance, the front end often strikes the pavement when pulling into driveways or going over bumps. If you like checking out your car engine, forget it, only a mechanic has access to the engine. It's got a bumpy ride. The steering is stiff. The gearshifter is stiff. And 255 horsepower, although does alot of growling, doesn't deliver great acceleration. Dealerships are few and far between if anything does go wrong.
Overall review: You don't get much for the money. The car has very few accessories at the entry level considering the price. I used to own a mazda miata and quite honestly, except for a noisier engine the miata performs and handles just as well as the boxter.

Great roadster by Paul - MA on 08/03/2012. Trim: 2009 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: If your looking for a great roadster, here it is. What a feeling to drive this car. I love everything about it. At first I thought it would be too small, I am 6ft tall. I have no problem. I recommend test driving this car, you will love it!
Cons: I will need to share this car with my wife.
Overall review: Always wanted to drive a Porsche, now I own one.

Boxster: there is no substitute by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/31/2010. Trim: 2009 Porsche Boxster Convertible, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Unlike many of today's cars the 2009 Boxter has personality. The 2009 exterior looks great, especially front and rear of the car comparing to the previous years model. Although it is small, it exudes performance and power from the way it looks, drives and sounds. I have Boxter, and would recommend it over Boxster S to anybody who buys this car for a daily driving.
Cons: With exception of driver's seat that need a minor repair (quality?). All else is in perferct shape. The car sometimes produces a puff of white smoke when started cold; but this is normal for the "boxster" configuration of engines according to Porsche service.
Overall review: Great car for fun open air drive, serious tarck driving and also practical for daily commuting. The tires are good for rain but not for snow, so if you plan winter driving the change of tires is in order. The roof folds down quickly during traffic for as long as your speed is under 30 mph. Enjoy when you decide to have one.
