Description

New to Turo? Copy and paste this link before you sign up to get $25 off your first rental: https://turo.com/c/royt16 Enjoy the quintessential California driving experience in this beautiful Porsche 987 Boxster. Check off that bucket list as you cruise along the many coastal drives in and around San Diego or take to the hills and canyons throughout the county. With the top down, you can hear that symphonic naturally aspirated 2.7L Flat-six engine mounted just behind you while taking in the sunshine this city is famous for. Meteor Grey exterior and Sand Beige leather keeps the interior from getting too hot. Heated seats are equipped for top-down driving on those cooler evenings. The Porsche Boxster is a triumph in packaging design, with 2 trunks (front and rear) allowing for a very generous cargo capacity for a mid-engined 2-seat roadster. See FAQ for specifics. ——————————————————————————————— Delivery Options: For delIvery and pick-up at San Diego Airport (SAN). Update: See FAQ#2 below for details. Hospitality: Upon delivery there should be a small cooler in the front trunk with complimentary ice-cold bottled waters and light snacks for your enjoyment. (Please return the cooler bag with the car). Cleaning policy: -The car will be delivered to you clean inside and out. For your convenience there is no need to clean the vehicle before returning under normal usage. Post-trip cleaning is included as a no-cost extra. -No fee will be charged if the car is returned in a reasonable condition. See guidelines below for further info on this. -Please DO NOT take it to an automated car wash. Fuel: Premium (91+ octane) only please. See guidelines for further info. Absolutely No Smoking/Vaping No Pets. I've added a Bluetooth Transmitter for the car, so you can listen to tunes from your smartphone. Should work with Phone calls as well. (Please return it with the car). As a reminder, Please DO NOT take the car off-road, across the border to Mexico, or to any race tracks, HPDE or competitive driving events. SEE TURO RULES for further info. --------------------------------- If you would like suggestions on where to go please don’t hesitate to ask. After booking, simply text me through the Turo App. I highly suggest a drive up the Historic Hwy 101 up the coast to Carlsbad.

Parking details

If you are planning on parking your own vehicle, there is street parking along Spectrum Center Blvd as well as Lightwave Ave (1 block over).

Guidelines

Fuel: The car will be delivered with a full tank. Please return at the same level. The car takes Premium fuel only (91 octane minimum). Kindly leave gas receipts in the center console or upload a pic to your trip photos in the Turo App. Much appreciated. Cleaning: There is NO need to clean the vehicle before returning. Please note that a $25-50 cleaning fee may be charged if the vehicle is extraordinarily dirty, (mud/excessive sand/food and other interior stains etc.). Please DO NOT take it to an automated car wash. Please drive responsibly and treat the vehicle with respect. It is a precision engineered sports car and may be enjoyed as such but please allow the car to warm up properly before any heavy acceleration or "spirited" driving Eating and Drinking: Please be careful with your food and beverages to avoid spills and stains. (I'd recommend dry food snacks and products that are easy to vacuum up). Absolutely NO smoking/vaping in the vehicle please. I and a number of guests like me are especially sensitive to smoke and you will be charged the maximum allowable fee for this. NO pets please. Please avoid sitting on the seats with wet swimsuits/shorts etc. The leather is perforated and sea water can be especially damaging. While driving around San Diego please be aware that there are a number of steep dips and bumps in and around the city. Please try to reduce speed when approaching these so as not to damage the nose or underside of the car. Hospitality: Upon delivery there should be a small cooler with complimentary Ice-cold bottled waters and light snacks. (Please return the cooler bag with the car or I will need to charge a replacement fee of $15). A Bluetooth Transmitter is provided for your convenience. Please return it with the car or I'll need to asses a ($50) replacement fee. Prohibited Travel: As a reminder, Please DO NOT take the car off-road, across the border to Mexico, or to any race tracks, HPDE or competitive driving events. SEE TURO RULES for further info.

Faqs

  • How much trunk space does the car have?
    The Boxster is equipped with a Front and Rear Trunk with a generous combined capacity of 9.9 cubic ft. The last photo shows how much I was comfortably able to pack into the two trunks: One Medium size (25x16x11) Luggage + TWO Overhead Bin Carry-On size (22x14x11) Roller bags + a soft backpack or two. I cannot guarantee that an oversize Luggage bag will fit. Soft sided bags generally work the best and will probably give you the most capacity. If you would like even more info, this is a good read: https://flatsixes.com/cars/porsche-boxster/everything-but-the-kitchen-sink/
  • Update on Airport Delivery: Can I pick up the car curbside?
    Not at the moment. Currently, SAN Airport does not permit TURO pickup and drop-off on airport property. Until this issue is resolved, hosts will be presented with a hefty fine. (Ask me how I know...) Instead, the car will be at Spanish Landing Park across the road from the airport. I will be happy to meet you at baggage claim and personally escort you to the car (just provide me your arrival flight details). Should be about a 10-minute walk or so.

Great car. I'm not a speedy driver, but I really appreciated the cornering quality of the Boxster. It's an efficient, easy car. Everything worked perfect! Roy cares for his car and it shows!
