2004 Porsche Boxster 986 2.7 from UK and Ireland
You can even get a set of golf clubs in the back boot
Nothing, the only comment is the soft top has crease marks. I have seen other soft tops with this problem; it's a common fault, the soft top does not leak.
I bought my 2004 Boxster 2.7 – 986 through eBay private sale.
It is basic compared to my BMW convertible, which came with a lot of toys. One option I do miss is the cruise control on that long motorway drive. Remember it’s a thoroughbred sports car, not a soft luxury car. So drive it.
The engine feels strong and the body feels stiff. Controls, doors, boots etc are very German.

When you rev over 3500 RPM, the sound from the exhaust is very Porsche.
Have a go at doing some simple maintenance i.e. air & pollen filters and plug. Access to the engine compartment is easy and fun; also it makes you part of the car. Get the oil and oil filter done at a garage for the stamp in the book. Also there is a good web site www.pedrosgarage.com and of course YouTube. Life is too short, it’s a bloody Porsche, buy one...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
