    If had two Boxters, a 2.9 987 and a 3.4 981 with sports exhaust. Both good cars but the 981S was great.

    Pound for pound two of the best cars on the road. We've had our 986S for seven years now and it's utterly brilliant, asking for so little but giving so much

    I've had 8 Boxsters and 3 Caymans in various guises - base, S, GTS, R etc. Currently have a 981 S Boxster and a Cayman GT4 due to arrive in a couple of weeks. They are fantastic cars and nothing else comes close IMHO for the money. They are incredibly practical as well with a large front boot and decent sized rear boot so they are great for touring holidays. Running costs are very reasonable with two year service intervals.

    Good similar period alternative to the Boxster is the bangle era Z4M a much more thrilling drive and you get that in-line 6 M3 engine pushing not very much around weight-wise.

    Values are starting to climb so jump in quick
