1998 Porsche Boxster Roadster 2.5 from Australia and New Zealand
Value for money in the Australian market. An all time classic
Haven't had it long. Got it as a birthday gift from my wife.
Looking at service history paperwork:
Spark plug fault.
Alarm system fault.
Rain got in under the seat, and water logged the main control unit.
Replaced soft top. Some low life cut the soft top with a hunting knife.
All I can say is wow. A dream come true. An all time classic with modern technology. Smooth lines and endless heritage. Boxer motor sounds excellent, 10 out of 10.
Leather seats are quality, plus I am 6 foot 3, and feel it has great head space and leg room.
RPM in the middle is just like true sports car.
Shares 90% of its parts with its big brother 911 (996).
Boot (trunk) space is excellent front and rear. Great for a weekend getaway.
Very cool sports car. If you're a very shy person, don't get one. You will be getting a lot of attention. Cool :☺
Life is too short; buy a Boxster. If you live in England, it's £2500 for a Boxster; they're as cheap as chips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Totally agree with your review, these are excellent cars. Great value for money at just a few thousand as well. I remember when these first came out, they were laughed at by some as "what you buy if you cant afford a 911", but nowadays they are respected by those in the know as a genuine sports car in every way.

Nothing like a car gift from a wife or parents. That’s an incredible feeling. Not a hand me down, meaning one they picked out for you. I bought my mom (dad passed) a nice car not long ago and surprised her for all she did for me when I was younger. Giving it back or away puts some real purpose on why we are really here. Congratulations, she must really care for you!
