2013 Boxster S...Would You?



What do you think about this car's looks? Is it masculine or feminine? Would you own it or another auto in the same class? Handling is great.

It looks alot better than the original Boxster. But the back still looks too much like the front.

This is the first Boxster I would be proud to drive but would never buy. For the same $65k this car costs I could get a great CPO 2008 or 2009 911, which is the car most Boxster owners really wanted.

It's just never appealed to me.
At its price point, you can get more powerful and better handling cars.

According to Charlie Harper, Boxster's are a chick car, so no.

I said the same thing.

I said the same thing, but leaning towards a later model '11 or '12 GTS cabrio. Like the wider rear stance, and extremely quick, fast and smooth. But this Boxster's body style change dramatically improved from previous year's looks. Wife could drive this without me feeling angst...

Eta: what sports convertible in the comparable range?

that screams yuppie. but then again, any man (or woman for that matter) driving an entry level "exotic" comes off as trying to hard. i'm a go big or go home kind of guy. buy used and bump up IMO
ETA: i also hate all convertibles. some hard tops i could live with. so my opinion is skewed in that aspect as well

Be a man. If you want a Porsche then get a 911

Just get a Miata. It would be cheaper and would send the same message to a particular demographic.

Would buy one in a second, and it is not a chick car. Sure, it's not a 911, but exactly what else is out there?? It is still a beautiful, German designed and engineered Porsche. You can't get much better unless you want to start looking over $80K plus for something more exotic.

Exactly.

It may get car of the year. Certainly not a chick car like models past.

This statement is inevitably made by people who drive Honda Accords or 5 year old Chevy Silverados.

That new Boxster will rip off sub 5 second 0-60 runs and will give a Carrera a run for its money around a track. The ideal track car is the Cayman, but OP wants the wind in his hair. You can't go wrong with either, Porsche reliability is second to none. You will get nailed on resale buying new, but if no one bought new there wouldn't be good deals on CPO cars.

quote:

Eta: what sports convertible in the comparable range?

Thats the thing: There really isn't much else out there. The Jag XK? Terrible reliability. The Mercedes SL? Way softer. The BMW 650? A huge cruiser. Maybe a CPO Aston Martin Vantage (2007's go for about $70k), but where do you get it serviced in Louisiana? A Camaro ZL-1 is faster and cheaper, but then you'd have a Camaro.
