Katie, you could always get a Panorama.
A Panamera? Even a base Panamera is way more money, and not nearly in the same performance realm as an M3 nor a Boxster Spyder.

Unless you really did mean she should just get wide-angle picture of her favoriate cars instead?

why does your sig say you drive a porsche?? Boxster spyder is one of the sexiest cars out there, and they are pretty rare. You only live once, and if you havn't started a family yet, now is the time to get what you really want and forget practicality.

M3 is a lot better car than the Boxter.
Now if you were thinking of a 911 Turbo; that is also different.
As others stated, the M3 is a DD the Boxter is NOT.

Thanks for the responses everyone. I think the M3 is faster but the Spyder handles extremely well. Which do you think will be worth more in the long run?

To the extent the thoughts of the average normal adult male are relevant to your consideration, I present you with this:

Seattle: Are you saying you feel the Boxster Spyder is a "chick" car? ... and the M3 is more of a masculine car?

Agree for a base Boxster or maybe even an S, SB. But for the Spyder? Way more sexy than a chick in an M3 IMHO.

Course, we don't even know if the OP really is female anyway.

No.

I would think the girl in the Boxster knows nothing about cars and went for a car that she thought was "cute."

On the other hand, I would think the girl in the M3 has good taste and knows her shit when it comes to driving the best all around car under 80K the world has ever seen.

The key words here are "all around". The Boxster is not an all around car. it is a single purpose sport toy and that is all.

I can see how it is a very difficult choice ... once again you need to make that choice to make sure your needs are meet.

This is a nice car no doubt about it CLICK then wait for the finally

BTW how much more cash do you have to put on the table along with your M3?

Didn't you just post a thread about trading in for a M3 or not?

If I was in your situation, and didn't plan on hitting the track, I'd take the Boxster spyder. It's a brilliant little car that's not to be underestimated. And it looks fantastic!

Good luck with your decision
