2dr Convertible 240-horsepower 2.7L H6 5-speed shiftable automatic RWD

Why the 2005 Porsche Boxster?

Brand reputation & image

Wanted car since high school. Finally reached a point in life where I could afford one.

Reliability & durability

Consumer Reports rated it a Best Buy with better than average repair history. Owned for 3 years (bought new) and have had no major problems. Even for minor problems, if >1 day in the shop, they either gave me a loaner or a free rental car.

Cargo capacity

VERY important (one of key reasons we purchased.) With 2 trunks we can load up the car for a weekend of camping or climbing or just getting away. Competitors all had tiny storage space.

Safety & braking

Consumer Reports noted Boxster had best brakes of ANY car they had EVER tested. Plus, the Boxster (2005 and later) was first convertible ever to provide side impact air bags.
