All the great reviews about Antonio and his BoxsterS are totally true - very cool guy, smooth experience and more than expected, angry-sounding, quick and agile little BoxsterS.
I am a serial Turo renter and really, really appreciate an owner who can encourage you to enjoy the car and understands it is really meant to be driven (responsibly) vs looked at home garage "showroom". With 200mi daily limit, I didn't stop riding for the two days I had it. Much appreciated Antonio!
If you have done your homework, or if you can get used to the extra growl and speed, you know you really want the S-model - 3.2L boxster engine bigger MAF and piping give you 280 HP which is about 20 more than models from earlier years). In a car just about 3k lbs, this translates into proper neck-snapping ability. If you are a car enthusiast, you know this is far from a poor man's porsche but rather a mid-engined, street-legal go-kart with a top-down which defines perfectly balanced handling.
The car has brand new tires! It is low mileage (65k) and is in very good condition despite minor paint nicks. It was an absolutely blast to drive through tight bends or on highway on-ramps. Very well maintained and couldn't have asked for better experience.
This Boxster S is a fabulous drive. Its a 2006 so its not perfect but its a fabulous ride. We did have some problems this the front tires however the owner and Turo attended to it promptly and the issue was sorted out. Turo was extremely helpful in this situation. I will use Turo again and also this Boxster if I am in the region again.
Simply amazing! Antonio was great, very pleasant to talk to. He was waiting for me with the engine already warmed up and showed me the details about the car. The ride was a wonder, having driven a Porsche for the first time, worked like a charm. I would definitely recommend it!
The car is in great condition and Antonio was efficient and responsive. Everything worked out well - exactly as planned. The only glitch was that Turo's instructions on shuttle service from LAX to the hotel parking lot was not up to date. A quick call to them fixed that -- but eventually the hotel shuttle did not show up even after a 45 min wait at the curb. Not Turo's fault entirely - as it is a 3rd party shuttle provider - and they agreed to reimburse the cab fare to the lot.
Antonio's Porsche was great fun and value for a long weekend. It's nice to have something different from the standard Mustangs and Camaro convertibles that are lined up at LAX. His communication was fantastic. The Boxster is the 2006 model, but it is still a fantastic car and in good condition for it's age.
Car was clean and ran like a charm. Antonio was incredibly professional and accommodating, and absolute pleasure to work with. Nothing ill to report whatsoever, would do business again without question.
Antonio was a great guy! Super easy and helpful. Car was great- not a brand new car, but drove properly and everything worked! A note that there is not currently any aux cord or way to connect a music device without an FM transmitter. Thanks!!
Great car in great condition! Exhilarating engine sound and S model means it's really got pickup. Antonio was very accommodating to change of dropoff location, on time and very communicative. Highly recommend!
For our anniversary, I took my wife on an anniversary date and surprised her with this Porsche. I booked it on short notice and he delivered! Me and my wife enjoyed driving her around with the top down. Antonio is a cool guy with a cool car. The transaction can't be any easier. Highly recommended! I won't think twice renting from Antonio again!
The Boxster was great to drive around sunny so cal with the top down during the day and at night. It's a great way to try out a fine German automobile if your thinking about getting one. The automatic version is a great dd car and a manual version would be a really good weekend car!
