  1. I love the boxster,but I do not want them to be the next big thing .I do not want to see guys buying them up in bulk and sending the value up like they do with the 911.I still hope that one day I will own a couple of them and I prefer that no one likes them

  2. All Porsches are galvanized. So they don't RUST.
    I have SMASHED my 986s for the last 5 yrs, without any issues.
    They take 100,000 miles to break the ENGINES in -That's a Fact.
    They are extremely easy to replace parts for. And you can do all the work yourself.
    IT'S A NO BRAINER…..Top down. Windows down. just go.

  3. I'm seriously considering buying a Boxster and if any out there owns one can you give me some numbers for maintenance costs? Like oil changes and filters, brake work, clutch replacement, etc. I owned a 2007 Bmw 3 series and spent ridiculous money to keep it running. I realize these cars are going to cost more to maintain, but I'm wondering how bad is the damage to my wallet?
    Thanks in advance.

  4. One day I just walked into a Porsche dealer looked at the cars and bought the prettiest one, I knew nothing about cars. it was the new Boxster 2016, and cost me GBP55k. Anyway it was a dream. and I still miss it, never broke down totally reliable. Got kids now, so I have to wait for them to grow before I buy a new one…
