Description

This car has to be the best way to explore austin - top down for an early morning run out to the lake, top up if the heat cranks up for your back roads trip to get BBQ. First time renters, follow the instructions below for $25 off your rental. The Boxster is Porsche's most intuitive and well balanced car, so you can experience the famous flat 6 without having to be a 911 expert. This Boxster is a 987 and definitely drives like it. Unless you have driven a Boxster before, you may be a little surprised by the noise of the engine right behind you and overall experience of a 987, which is very typical Porsche. I try very hard to be the easiest host on Turo. Try me out... 1. Prior to creating your Turo account, copy and paste this link (https://turo.com/c/greggh32) into a new browser window. 2.

Pickup and drop off are easy - the Porsche is in a garage very close to Downtown with easy access. You'll return it to the same garage, where it has a reserved space. No need to find a parking spot.

Guidelines

- I added a TxTag for the car so that you can take it on tollways. Just let me know if you use it and I can add it to the invoice. - No smoking, no pets, no smoking pets. - Bring the Porsche back the way you picked it up, basically clean, full of gas and ready to go get some BBQ. - The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that deep down inside we ALL believe we are good drivers. prove me right.

Faqs

  • How do I lower the top?
    To open/close the top, look for the large button that says "press" - that is the latch that secures the top to the body. there are switches to the right of the driver's seat that open and close the top. the top likes to be all the way up or all the way down.
  • Is there a trunk?
    There are two trunks, front and rear. Both can be opened via the key, or the switches to the left of the driver's seat. the switches are electronic, so no need to use any force to operate them.
  • where is the gas cap?
    The gas cap is on the passenger's side front fender.
  • I'm turning the key, and the car won't start.
    The key has an orientation, so if the car is not starting, turn the key over. Also, you need to have your foot firmly on the brake pedal for the ignition to engage.

The car was kept just a three minute walk from our hotel so the convenience was an added bonus. The car was great, top down and away to explore the area. We went to San Antonio, the lakes and Fort Worth and the car was completely reliable, fun and economical. Collection and drop off was made easy. Nothing was to much trouble.
