Porsche Boxters are a bunch of fun to drive. You can just zip
around town with them, they fit easily in parking spaces, and they
have two trunks to stash stuff in. But they are also ready, willing
and able to tear up a back road or even enter an autocross on a
Sunday afternoon. Come on down and check this one out.
Dark Blue metallic along with a fluid shape makes this car pretty
stealthy. It looks like the air shaped the curves of the fenders as
it flowed up the hood and over the tops of them. Up front an
integrated spoiler reaches low for the ground to keep air from
getting under the car. The air intakes above it are for the brakes
as well as the radiators and the headlights have aerodynamic
covers. Body colored mirrors and door handles keep the look clean
and the Black convertible top looks great either up or down.
Intakes in the rear fenders feed nice cool air to the engine. The
rear of the car looks shaped by the air again as it flows together
over the fenders and wraps down over the rear bumper. The rear
valence has two diffusers drawing air out from under the car with
the exhaust tip exiting out the center.
Open the door and you will find the comfortable, modern interior
that you would expect in a high line sports-luxury car. The door
panel is dark gray with accent lines that echo the shape of the car
with the power window switches as well as a couple of the speakers
for the stereo mounted exactly where they belong. The high back
sport seats are trimmed in leather and are comfortable as well as
supportive for spirited driving. The steering wheel is sculpted,
wrapped in leather, and feels good in your hands. The paddles
shifters mean that you never have to take your hands off the wheel
to shift it either. A trio of gauges has the tach as the largest
and is directly in front of the driver (as it should be) and the
speedo as well as engine gauges are off to the sides. The center
console holds the FM/CD stereo on the top with the ventilation
controls below it as well as the shifter.
Under the hood, or actually, hidden under the middle of the car, is
a 2.9-liter flat 6-cylinder engine that cranks out 255 horsepower
at 6400 RPM. The front hood and rear trunk provide a surprising
amount of storage space and there is access to the oil dipstick and
fill tube in the rear. Further access to the engine can be had by
pulling access panels if you are inclined to do your own work. This
engine has already been serviced up recently with fresh oil and
filter as well as having a couple oil seals replaced and a new
battery. It sends the power back to a 7-speed PDK transmission
which gets it to the rear wheels through an independent, multilink
suspension. Up front, power rack and pinion steering provides good
feel and outstanding handling while big disc brakes at all four
corners make sure that you can stop this car in a hurry. 205/50/17s
in the front and 235/5017s in the rear are mounted on those
beautiful Porsche 5-lug alloys.
A power operated top, a comfortable interior with all the luxuries,
and plenty of space for your groceries or luggage for a weekend
getaway. This car is fun to drive and practical too. Come on down
and check it out.
