once you are ready at the airport, let me know your door number, and terminal number at the Departures terminal, I can send a cab to pick you up at the airport and drop you back at my place which is 10 mins away and from my place you can pick up the car.
For the drop off, it is the same thing, but you would be dropping off the car at my place and then I shall get you a cab to take you to the airport.

2005 Porsche BoxsterBoxster S Manual Transmission 100 miles / day155142
Car is super fun, and Krishnakumar provided good communication throughout. The car does show its age with a few small things like a broken trim piece, the passenger side visor not latching, and 2nd gear synchros being a bit worn. But somehow these didn't bother me a bit while revving the flat 6 engine out carving up the coastal highway roads with the top down. The stereo system also sounds excellent, but the aftermarket Bluetooth interface is quite unintuitive (owner should provide a quick "how to pair" guide would prevent confusion). We drove over 2,200 miles on this trip and I would definitely rent this car or another from Krishnakumar in the future.
It's a manual, so first off you want to know what the clutch feels like. It slid into gear nicely, but I will note that it does feel aged. It wasn't buttery smooth, but one must remember it's an old car. The engine still had good power and was responsive. The interior is where I dropped a star. The car needs a serious cleaning. I can't say anything about Kishnakumar, because I actually worked with his brother, but he was fine to work with. He let me drop the car off a couple hours early.
Car was a lot of fun to drive. Looks a little rough up close but if you're more interested in enjoying the drive than being looked at this is a great choice. Car was clean and the owner was easy to work with.
Krishnakumar and his Porsche were great. I arrived late, a bit jet lagged and embarrassingly cranky as a result. He was patient and kind, and gave me a thorough but brief walkthrough of the car. As soon as I fired the engine, all was good in the world. The smile didn't leave my face for the next five days, right up till when I was allowed to drop off the car about 12 hours earlier than anticipated due to travel changes. Yet again, Krishnakumar was great about it.
Very smooth rental of Krishnakumar's Boxster S. The car might be a few years old but is still a blast to drive on the bay's twisty roads like skyline and route 9. The stereo also sounds good even with the top down. The aux connector is in the armrest. Very convenient pick up and drop off. Krishnakumar is a gent. Great communication, flexible and overall great rental. Recommended.
Great car to rent for a fun week driving through the Napa/Sonoma wineries. It's an older car with some wear and tear but still super fun to drive. Handles awesome esp on winding roads. Krishnakumar was very easy to work with. He was timely in answering questions before the trip (like don't take a large suitcase cuz it won't fit in the trunk). We bought a large duffle bag type suitcase because it was easier to mold into the trunk (our large suitcase would have never fit). This was our first time using Turo and we were a bit nervous but Krishna made it very easy. He arranged for an Uber to pick us up from the airport to get us to/from the car. Fairly quick process. Easy to do. We would definitely do it again!!!
My first time driving Porsche and I want to have one. It handles very good and drives very dynamically, it has torque at any speed. Super glad that booked that car, but next time I will try a carrera for sure. Thanks Krishna.
Very fun car to drive and once one gets used to the quirks like all German cars you'll fall in love with it. I'd absolutely rent this again. For the price of the rental you can't have any complaints. It all works how it should and exceptionally well for a higher mileage car that is now rented. Thanks again!
This was my first time using Turo and it went very well! Krishna left a message of where to find the car, and instructions on how to document starting mileage and fuel. The car itself was very enjoyable. Nothing like having a manual transmission convertible when in Northern California on business. Had a minor issue during the trip and Krishna was very helpful in resolving the issue. I would certainly rent from him again.
Spent a truly stunning weekend driving Krishna's '05 Boxster S! If you want to thoroughly enjoy the experience of driving a mid-engine high performance Porsche convertible plan your route to go through the endless mountain turns of the Skyline Dr, La Honda Road and Hwy 1! In one word: SPECTACULAR!
Krishna is a great person and a pleasure to deal with! He was VERY helpful and accommodating. Look forward to be renting with him again!
Sweet, fast, smooth car. Interior is nice leather. Great sound system with subwoofer. Some wear and nicks on exterior. Gorgeous car. Owner was easy to get ahold of and good to work with. I'll rent again.
Driving mechanics are good. Car is 10 years old, so expect some wear and tear on paint, buttons. It's a blast to drive. This is a Boxster S, so it has that extra exhaust growl and a little more scoot. It was easy to pick up and drop off.
Krishnakumar was very accommodating, The car was was very clean and it ran great. I enjoyed driving the Boxster and the experience with Turo. I recommend to anyone who is tired of paying high rental taxes and wants to be a little adventurous. Great experience. .
Fantastic car and owner. Despite its age, the Boxster S is in great shape mechanically, and once you're behind the wheel and get a feel of the car, it's an incredible experience. The engine is silky smooth and the car corners as if on rails. The owner Krishnakumar was incredibly responsive and helpful in explaining the finer details of the car as well as making an adjustment to my schedule. Would definitely do business again!
Krishna offers great value in his Porsche Boxster. We spent a wonderful day driving around the Santa Cruz Mountains, Mount Hamilton, and around the Bay Area. With the top down the entire day, even the early morning (7am) was no problem with the heated seats in this car. The car handles the corners for you, and the manual transmission made the driving experience of this car perfect.
Krishna is quick to respond and flexible. We will rent from Krishna again.
Krishna was extremely accommodating and made everything extremely easy for us.
The Porsche Boxter S we rented from him made our experience driving through California so much better. The car works wonderfully and we had the top down pretty much during the entire trip.
I highly recommend Krishna and his Boxter S!
Thank you again Krishna.
What a great car to take down the coast, sounds phenomenal, drives like a charm, you really feel like a rich star in this drop top, and surprisingly enough room for baggage too! And owner was super accommodating and real quick communication. ZERO COMPLAINTS! You will not regret it, im definitely gonna request this car again next time I'm out west.
Great car! Despite the mileage it has, Krishnas kept it in great shape and everything performs beautifully, especially the signature tone of that flat 6 exhaust. Can't thank him enough for offering so much car at this price point. Would recommend to any prospective renters.
Couldn't have asked for more. Krishna was incredibly easygoing and accommodating, and the car.. well.. what can I say. Heaven on four wheels. Thanks you Krishna for providing such an incredible opportunity. Now I'm hooked- Guess I'll have to keep renting from you until I can buy one myself :-)
The car is not cosmetically perfect, as you would expect from a 10 year old car. But, trust me, as soon as you get behind the wheel none of that will matter. The car is mechanically sound, and a complete pleasure to drive. Steering, shifter, clutch, everything is spot on. Incredibly fun and engaging car to drive, especially on mountain roads.
Krishna was kind enough to go over some of the details of the car before delivery, and then I was on my way. Would definitely rent again.

Super flexible. Gave us a quick tour of the car's features, marked the mileage and we were off.
I had a great time with Krish's car. It was mechanically in great shape, and handled everything that I threw at it. The tires were worn out, and when I said something Krish replaced them that afternoon so I could still go away for the weekend. He even drove me home after I dropped off the car. A great guy to deal with.
This little boxster is so much fun to drive! Krishna was very accommodating to the changes in our trip when we arrived as well as when we dropped off. This could not have been a better experience. Can't wait to come back to SF and rent this car again!
Wow, this really exceeded my expectations. Krishna dropped the car off for us right at Arrivals at SFO, showing us the ins and outs before we were on our way. The car is in mechanically perfect shape -- the clutch, steering, brakes all felt like I was driving off the showroom floor. We loved zipping around in this with the top down through the warm Sonoma sunshine. Could not have had a smoother experience.
Krishna is super friendly, and always responds to my messages within minutes. Despite high mileage, the car is mechanically in excellent shape: strong power, excellent response, very good clutch feel. This car makes me want to get a Boxster/Cayman myself :)
Krishna was very accommodating - he picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at no extra cost. The car was as described and was a lot of fun to drive along the coast. Highly recommend this rental.
Overall, a great experience.
The owner Krishnakumar was very friendly and helpful. He answered all Emails and SMS messages quickly. We had arranged an airport drop-off, which was very convenient: I had two heavy bags and a violin case (it all fit in the Porsche), and so really appreciated being dropped off at the International Departure gate. Much better than Avis.
I spent 3 days with the Boxster, and now miss it! While high-mileage (ok for a 2005 model), the car was in excellent driving condition: no creaks, no wobbles, firm brakes, lots of thread on the tires. There was even an iPhone holder and charger in the car!
I highly recommend Krishnakumar's Porsche Boxster for driving down Highway No. 1, Skyline Blvd, and other famous Californian "dream roads". Those roads ask for a great-handling convertible. Don't compromise!
