The Boxster is a looker, but I'd rather say wait for the new Cayman! If not, just get a 2nd hand GT3

Meh...atleast the college kid will do something interesting and make me laugh. That way I can start a new thread and share my experience with all of you. (half of which are probably college kids to begin with, Lolzzz)

Although the Boxster isn't for me personally, I would bet it will prove to be better than the M3 in most meaningful ways on a track. It just comes down to what you want/value. The new version is also very nice to look at.

I personally think you are making a mistake. However, its your money if you sell the M3 and get the Boxster, enjoy it in good health.

If you were talking about a 997.2S or even 991 different story, but not a Boxster.

Unless you need a convertible, I'd wait for Cayman S.

The new Boxster is a totally different car than the outgoing model. I love it. Still, I would wait for the new Cayman.

Are you really buying a car based on what you see in YouTube videos?? Without seeing or test driving it first ?

You guys can rag on the Boxster all you want. My '99 986 was one of the best handling cars I've ever owned, and even with the 2.5 it showed its ass to many cars with a lot more power when the road got twisty.

But... I would not sell an E9X M3 to buy one now, even with all the advances made since then.

Just read OP's username. After that, this whole thread will make sense.

If the 981 cayman R would have: air conditioning, a stereo, and even more important, door handles... I would be all over it.

While I love the Boxster (handling is in a different realm than anything BMW), I would get a Cayman S or R. Those handle even better and certainly make anything BMW has look clumsy and lazy on its feet in comparison. But the Boxster does make a great back road carver or track car and works if you dont need much space as a DD.
