Had a ride in a Boxster S yesterday

Sounds nice. Great brakes too. Goes round corners well and no evidence of any scuttle shake. Liked it.

A mate has a 2.7 current shape Boxster tip-auto, with the flappy paddles. Surprisingly the auto is truly excellant even in fully auto mode, with a lovely blip-then-exhaust cackle on downchanges.
Handles very well, ride is fine for daily use, and even more disgustingly driven semi sensibly it does 30-32mpg. Where can you go wrong??!

You could borrow your bosses Boxster, previous shape, 2.5.
Drive it about and grin ear to ear.
Fill it up because it's getting low.
Get a hundred yards up the road.
Swear because you used diesel...

Typo fixed.

Did you get some funny looks at the petrol station when you put diesel into it?

*cough* But only because he emigrated to Australia.

Nah I didn't do it! It wasn't me. It was Tim, Richard, oh, somebody else. Yes I know I smell of diesel. That's because I'm the DervMan. What? You think I'd drive a petrol Porsche?

Good aren't they, no matter how you try you just have to like them, bit like any other small mid-rear car.

I'm tempted to get one to replace the 5-Series since I don't use the seating capacity much these days - and still have the SD1 for when I do need it. But I'd obviously be buying pretty secondhand ;-) and really don't know anything about Porsche.

Use your eyes, FSH is advised, main dealer no biggie but specialist is important for resale and peace of mind, HPI it but check thoroughly anyway. Otherwise, regular maintenance isn't that killing, and they're pretty tough.
This is based on older experience, though, so I don't know if the newer cars have done a Mercedes and gone to shit. Reputation suggests not.
