They're fun cars. I'd rock one.
You'll get shit on by most of OT for having the cheapest and girliest porsche there is, even if it is an S and not a base.
Go with a 370z..it beats the Cayman/Boxster.
Porsche with panties
My mechanic says you practically have to drop the engine to change the oil. That doesn't bode well for maintenance.

Boxster S is cool.
Base Boxster is not.
Anyone who disagrees has never been on a track and is a poser anyway.
The Porsche Miata?
they look like those toyota ripoffs
Faster doesn't always mean more enjoyable.... but I'd still seriously consider the 370Z over the Porsches.
Mid engine layout is a plus but I've never warmed up to its looks.
id think 60 grand for a stripped bare bones one is too much
yeah cuz he's gonna spend most of his time on the track
Is this a serious statement?
I've debated trying to save up my poker points and get one
scratch that, thats the cayman-s that they have for poker points.
Obviously i dont know shit about porsches but i thought it looked nice
I'd take a s2k over a base
i test drove the boxster s (280hp version, like in that pic) and its a fun car. i didn't push it very hard, but found out later that these cars have no limited slip, which makes no sense to me.
i was also worried about maintenance. apparently its not that bad.
i don't like the 370's looks much. i could go and drive one, maybe it would change my mind.
People who hate on the Boxster S don't give that car enough credit. Handles like a fucking monster, is fast, brakes hard, mid engine..
So it's not a 911, big fucking deal.. It's still a respectable car in it's own right.
Go drive one. OT will crap on you for buying one, but it's one of the most enjoyable Roadsters I've ever driven. I should have just gone ahead and bought one when I bought the R32.
hate the looks
i loved the s2k on paper, but for a daily driver i wouldn't want one.
where's the torque? for quick runs around town i'm not gonna stay at 6k+rpm, which ruins quick-few-seconds-throttle-mashing opportunities in town
but i could even live with that given the rest.
what i cant live with is the cramped seating. no leg room, and i sit relatively upright when i drive and i'm 6'1. i drove the car and found myself hunching down to have more vision because you sit too high compared to the windshield
I'd rather a Cayman
at 5'6" I don't have that problem at all
