Thanks in advance.
get the new release if poss
if you cant afford the $600/month lease, then look for the 987.2 version with the updated motor that has all the engine blowing up issues fixed (IMS)
987.1 versions got the tiptronic slushbox, dont get that shit
987.2 has the double clutch - but it shifts by pressing buttons on the steering wheel (lame)
i think the release finally has actual paddle shifters now... (you want that)
if you get the manual - 987.1 non-S has 5 spd ... (fail)
people who say boxster is a gay's car, have never driven a boxster... (samething applies to gayman)
i test drove a non-S gayman, shit was nasty - almost leased one myself
dont get the 986 - that shit is carbage...
to be frank, if you are looking used - get a s2000 instead... if you want a bit prestige, get the bmw z4
both are day-night over-all better options than a coxster unless you get the new 2012 release or at least the 987.2
