But those negatives are something a buyer should be aware of and how much those repair/fixes are and the buyers mechanical ability. Of course budget and desire to own car is consideration... The Porsche Boxster is a cool little car and will probably have a small following in 20-30 years. Like the Spitfires, Midgets, other small roadsters. Yes the bigger TR's, MG A/B, is more sought after but there little siblings still have there niche and keep the market alive. With that said, based on looks and price. I would probably go with a Boxster and still have plenty of fun in the car.
i mean... if someone buys a $7000 PORSCHE
convertible and gets a blown engine... they better see that shit coming because... thats why its $7000 ...
its like maseratis are $35000 used... and people dont buy them? why? because if you cant go to your local gas station to repair a MAZ can you?
if you go to the dealer... i dont think you can come out for less than a couple large ones... and i think its like $2/mile driven average in terms of repairs?
used exotics are great if you can get lucky... its retarded if you picked a bad fruit
