I’m in the market for a car. I have no kids. I don’t commute by car. I live in Southern California. So, obviously, I’m buying a two-seat convertible! Despite the obvious rationality of a Miata, or the bang-for-the-buck of a C5 Corvette, I’ve had my eye on some first-gen Boxsters. For example, this 2003 with 38,000 miles for sale for $17,000. Classy, German, possibly temperamental, but also plenty fast and fun.

So what are the general pitfalls of Boxsters? Any problems to be aware of? Random things that cost a ton to repair (wait...its a Porsche...don’t answer that.) Can you at least fit two people’s luggage for a weekend getaway in the trunk/frunk? Any Oppo expertise would be appreciated.
