Yeah they are good. My friend got an old boxster too for a very affordable price. The only problem is, they didn't look so good back then. Hence why i've been looking at the latest generation. and thinking about getting a used one down the road some time

I bought a 2001 boxster S (Odometer only 40700 miles)2 months ago, and my previous vehicle was a 2011 Ford Mustang GT. pbbly I should not compare the boxster with a american muscle, but have to say that even it s a 14 years old car, but the performance really impresses me. Although the boxster doesnt have that much power, and with only 250 hp 220 lb-ft torque ( basically 200 hp and 200 torque less than the mustang ), but it is really fun to drive. Unfortunately, it s automanual transmission, so I can play with the clutch anymore :(. Uh there is one more thing. I really like the way they use the 255/50/ZR17 tires on the rear, it looks great and also gives the positive handling on the curve.

Great drivers car for the money. Doesnt look that bad either.
Those front lights look bad on 911' But here on boxster they are ok.

Great all arounder sports roadster. And its a Porsche.

350z isnt that good, but propably look better - and still its more outside than inside.
Z4 is better looker, but not deliver such driving expirience like this midle engined car.
