Used Boxster ....

on Thu Apr 06, 2017 2:21 pm
Basil,

If you won't buy one - I might Laughing

After a very drunken evening with my 911 owning friend, man maths kicked in, and we started looking at 2009/10 Porsche Boxster, the road trips coming up, and the fact that my BMW is only going to lose money ....

Anyway - let she see what happens this time ...

Why an 09 Boxster over an 05 911?

About £5k difference, and running costs ... but that might be the answer ...

I actually quite fancy a relatively basic convertible ... re-live the Lotus days ...

I've been walking to work quite a lot over the past couple of weeks (5.5miles each way) and I noticed that the vast, vast majority of cars sound very dull as they drive past you.

Apart from Porshes which always sound nice. The flat 6 thing A mechanical growly clank.

Hit home the other night that my mates Porsche (due to zero depreciation) costs less to run than my depreciating BMW!!

Not saying a Boxster won't depreciate ... but if I pick the right car - it should depreciate less than the BMW ....

That and I might enjoy driving it - BMW is nice .... but I don't want nice anymore - I want angry Tiger Laughing

P.S. that Z4 does look the absolute dogs.

Does it seem a bit pricey though?

yeah that is mega expensive for a 2012.

but come on....i had this issue with 3 of the cars i was interested in.

but you can NOT get the 3.0i, you HAVE to get the 35i......come on, 3 liter straight six AND a turbo which is massively mappable

do the right thing here
