“Love this car”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by fr4nkyh1 (4 reviews written)

This is everything I have ever wanted in a sports car. I have always wanted a Porsche and wanted to wait until I could afford a 911, it was on my wall as a kid. I have owned Alfa Romeos, an M3, a Mini cooper Sworks, a Honda S2000 amongst other sports cars in the past but none of them compare with the build quality and overall performance of the Boxster-s. This is the 2nd boxster-s I have owned- someone drove in to my first one (I was gutted). It really is an awesome driving experience. My… Read Full Review

“Once driven you are hooked”

Written on: 29/04/2012 by Relax911 (1 review written)

Fed up with BMW and poor dealer service, a friend suggested Porsche. I gave the Boxster a try from the Porsche main dealer in Belfast. I am now on my second one which is the RS 60 Spyder. Great performance from this 3.4lt 311bhp engine. I travelled 2100 miles through France last year; it was the most comfortable journey ever. Sports seats hold you in position and the mid engine means you take roundabouts as if on rails. Top down gives you better aural pleasure with a superb sports exhaust. With… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/04/2011

Last year i bought a boxster 3.2s After owning bmw 330 for 8 years it was difficult finding a replacement, was originaly looking at slk 350 (55 amg out of price range) as i fancied a convertible, and wanted a sports car rather than a cruiser like the bmw.have not looked at an slk since buying 3.2s and cant believe i considered one.the porsche is so poised precise and being convertible it just adds an extra element to the overall enjoyment of driving.you can get lots of luggage in it enough for… Read Full Review

Hi there, I drove and tested lots and lots of cars and came up with a
Conclusion that, anyone who didn't drive a porsche, he/she didn't drive a
car.
I bought my Porsche boxterS convertible in April 2009.As soon as I took the
car out of the showroom. The sales man called me to congratulate me on the
purchase and I told him that I would still be happy about the car even if
you doubled the price. The first few weeks I was unable to look neither
left nor right while driving the car because… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2009 by Steve Boxster (1 review written)

Just bought a 2004 Porsche Boxster 3.2 S on 44,000 miles and I cant tell you how pleased I am with the whole driving experience and the looks I from the neighbours. However, after reading several articles over the past week or so, I am getting concerned over running costs associated with known problems which exist with this model, such as brake corrosion and sticking.

Perhaps I am just being pesimistic and I should make my own mind up after I have owned it for a bit longer.....here goes, i'm… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2007 by paul reade (1 review written)

So far the Porsche Boxster has met all my expectations. Being a complete bike buff - I decided that I needed to start considering safety over 2 wheels. I therefore needed a car that went beyond a bike. Apart from not being able to filter through traffic this car is superb. The bike is currently up for sale - that has to be a very positive report!… Read Full Review

“I have driven quick cars for years but the Porsche...”

Written on: 13/03/2007 by loveridgem (4 reviews written)

I have driven quick cars for years but the Porsche Boxster 3.2 S is something else. I test drove a couple of 2.5 Boxsters before I bought the 3.2. The difference is like chalk and cheese. The acceleration is spine tingling. The handling is frightening in a nice way. Learn to trust it and almost nothing can go round corners like this. My wife and I invent places to go at the weekend just to drive the car on twisty A roads. Large grins from start to finish. As a bonus the sound this car makes is… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2007

I also have a 3.2 S. There is no substitute! Drive any other car including the BMW M model of the Z4, Honda 2000, Audi TT, Corvette or Mercedes and you'll come back to the Porsche 3.2S. On the high end, drive the 3.2 S against it's big brothers or any other high-end exotic and you still will find yourself wondering if the extra money you'll pay for one of these cars is worth the thousands you'll pay for one of them. The Boxster "S" is in a class of it's own.

Written on: 03/01/2007 by shaun grainger (1 review written)

This is a fantastic car. It oozes quality, and it is a pleasure to own and drive. The drive is immensely satisfying, and the sound from that engine is addictive. The thrill of acceleration is similar only to a very large motorcycle, but with much more comfort (unless of course you can afford super cars). The feedback from the steering is faultless, as is the overall handling of the Porsche Boxter S. You never feel you have reached the cars limitations. I have had many cars, most of which being… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2006 by A10ENW (2 reviews written)

I'd hoped that this Porsche Boxster 3.2 S would be the best car I'd ever owned, and in many ways it is. But the ownership experience has been severly undermined, problems with suspension linkages, which seem to be made of industrial grade chocolate. Bits coming loose, water leaking in through the door, oil leaking out, ball joints, coil packs etc etc.
But when it's all working, and the weather's fine, and the roof's down, somehow it nearly all makes sense.
However, I can't see me buying… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2004 by grantnev (1 review written)

Believe the hype, this Porsche Boxster 3.2 S sports car is fabulous. Put away your Porsche prejudices and just enjoy the experience of the finest 2 seater this side of a 360 Modena. Use it every day, drop the roof when the winter sun shines and feel the glow of running the best roadster that sensible money can buy.
I ran one for 40 months and 40,000 miles of year round driving in the UK. I was going to get the hard top but decided after one winter that it wasn't necessary. Only in the wettest… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2004 by stephenmogg (10 reviews written)

After lusting after a Porsche for long enough to save up and buy one, the reality certainly lives up to the expectation. I love this car and I can see why they have stayed top of their game for so long. The car seems to have a split personality which makes it easy to live with as it adapts to various challenges of day to day life. The performance and handling allow you to thunder about the place at alarming speeds without ever seeming to approach the limits of cars ability. However, it will… Read Full Review

I recently bought a Porsche Boxster 3.2 S speed. This car is everything they say it is. Unbelieveable torque off the line that just keeps increasing. It's like taking off the deck of an aircraft carrier. The handling is so sensitive that you almost become one with car. Strongly recommend buying one - you only live once… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2004 by A10ENW (2 reviews written)

I bought the Porsche Boxster 3.2 S 2 weeks ago. It's all the fun of the fair. Press the fast pedal and it goes stupidly fast. Press the stop pedal and it stops, but you have to press hard, so make sure your quads are up to it.

Steering is as sharp as a sharp thing with extra sharp bits added for extra sharpness. Unlike the Lotus Elise I drove while choosing which got horrbly twitchy over 69 mph

Gear change can be a bit lumpy but not obstructive. Apparently the gearbox is right at the rear of… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/11/2003 by Rotaree (1 review written)

I have owned the car from new since Jul 02 and it's been fantastic. It is always a pleasure to drive with terrific handling and peformance. There has been nothing go wrong at all - the only thing I asked to be attended to in addition to its first service was a slight rattle from the roof which was sorted with no charge. One slightly bizarre comment I would make is probably more a criticism of me as opposed to the car - I find it slightly uninvolving. For a car with the performance that it… Read Full Review

i bought a 2003 3.2 s last week and wow is it a great car. i have owned M3s etc but nothing pulls like this off the line, so much torque. mine seems nicer to drive with the hood down, its mega noisy with roof up, engine and wind noise, but so so nice with it down, i could drive it all day.

soo true, the Boxster S beats the Honda 2000S everytime. But I will give you that the Honda is a great car too, nice to hold, but dull interior...

Further to my original review, I've got over my disillusionment with the car and am now enjoying it as much as I ever did; I've also test driven a TVR and realise that they have a long way to go in terms of build quality!
<br>revvyman - you obviously haven't driven a Boxster S - the Honda doesn't even come close. I'd like to see any motoring report anywhere that rates the S2000 above a Boxster (excepting any written by Honda themselves!)

Uninvolving in that it lets you know what's happening so well? Or uninvolving meaning it doesn't turn heads?
