Fun, unique high performance car

This car is a thrill to drive. It’s has lots of leg room and very comfortable. I have been very happy with this car and it has met all of my expectations.

Great car! Comfortable and fun to drive.

I love the Porsche Boxsters. They are so much fun and really beautiful cars. They feel great on the road especially in the turns. My Boxster made driving anywhere fun.

Sports Car Bargain

Used Boxsters are easily the bargain of the sports car world. Are there faster cars? Of course! But you will not care. Even the base Boxster is plenty fast and the handling is amazing. You can drive this car at 10/10ths and smile the entire time. And then drive to the grocery store and pack a full cart of goods into the front and rear trunks with no problem. The 2.9L flat 6 pulls effortlessly, the 6 speed manual shifter feels like a bolt action rifle, the steering weight is perfect, and the pedal position is ideal for heel/toe downshifts. I have owned quite a few fun cars in my time, and this car is easily my favorite (hands down better than my Elise even!).

Funnest Car to own.

Porsche is an excellent brand and the 2010 Boxster S proves to be a mid engine load of fun. Looks so sweet, has power and handles like a race car.

Good Performance and Value

The 2010 Porsche Boxster has many reliability, performance, and interior improvements over older models. Also, much more capable highway cruiser than the older models. This car has the all of the Porsche driving experience and has mid-engine handling. Mine has some extra options. Bose Stereo, Homelink, and Heated Seats. Definitely fun to drive.

Fun but...

The car is great fun to drive. I chose a 2010 because the IMS bearing problem had finally been solved. A total engine failure is simply not acceptable, no matter how fun the car. Well, at 37,000 miles the shift cable broke. It's a problem that leaves you stranded and frustrated. However, as they loaded the car onto the flatbed and I contemplated trading it in, I thought; "but I really want it!" I hope the cable is an updated/upgraded version of the original. I'll be sure to update this review if it breaks again.

A Great Sports Car

The best thing about the model year 2010 is that Porsche eliminated the IMS (beginning 2009) (intermediate shaft bearing) that was so problematic that there was a class action law suit against Porsche. See Google for details. This is a really nice car overall, although I do prefer the Boxster S for night and day difference in performance. Get the 6 speed, although that is my preference instead of the PDK. It's a sports car so why would you want an automatic? Avoid those in an accident, previously, as being smacked in the rear or side can be problematic as a mid engined car. Overall I love Porsche and own 3 including a classic 911 and 914. Great cars. Just do your homework, and get a PPI (Porsche Pre Inspection just to be sure in order to avoid expensive headaches.
