Description

Get $25 off your first rental: https://turo.com/c/jeffc5 (Use this link in a Web browser to create a new account). Click on my profile picture to view all my other cars available for rent (luxury/convertible: Aston Martin, Mazda Miata, Land Rover, to economy/compact cars: Scion, Sonic, etc.) With its engine set behind the driver and ahead of the rear wheels, the 2007 Porsche Boxster is perfectly balanced. The water-cooled 6-cylinder unit is laid flat in classic boxster configuration, hence the name. Once inside, those bucket seats grab you like a padded vice, which you'll appreciate when hustling through the corners. They're comfortable, though; consequently the 2007 Porsche Boxster is a car you can sit in for long hours and step out with little sense of fatigue. Everything else is perfectly positioned for the art of driving and even with the steering wheel in its lowest position the instruments are not blocked from view. The exterior design is flawlessly sculptured; the padded convertible top lowers and rises in 13 seconds flat with a touch of a button after first releasing a center latch, then disappears under a metal panel. Here is a car where you'll be tempted to change gears frequently. First, the 5-speed shifter is absolutely flawless in feel, effort, precision. Second, the 6-cylinder Boxster engine has such a magnificent sound; music that only a Porsche can make, it seems. With 245 horses providing the urge, the 2007 Porsche Boxster loves to rev, loves to run. Much of the urge arrives after you've passed the 3000 rpm mark, another cause for frequent shifting. The Boxster is so superbly balanced it can be cornered at speeds a sane person would not even consider. Big disc brakes haul you down in a hurry when a curve looms or an unexpected object suddenly appears. Pure joy wouldn't be an exaggeration when describing the pleasures of driving this 2007 Porsche Boxster. And yet it's not a no-compromise performance car. Porsche has provided the needed comforts and conveniences, including power windows, power doors, power mirrors, leather trim, a quality entertainment system, climate control. Lower the top, raise the windows, turn up the heater, and motor along in perfect comfort. Take along a companion and you will appreciate the two trunks, one for each of your bags; they're surprisingly large. The 2007 Porsche Boxster represents the epitome of what a modern sports car ought to be and a technological miracle considering how much is packed into such a compact package. Transmission: 5 Speed Manual w/overdrive Engine: 2.7 L, 245hp, 225 lb-ft torque Exterior Color: Maroon Interior Color: Gray 20 City / 29 Hwy (not bad for a sports car) Convertible Top - 13 seconds fast.

Picked up the car from SFO Valet lot which was very convenient. This was a fun car to drive but ,unfortunately, the car only had one hour between a week long trip prior and my rental. As a result, the car was dirty when picked up and seemed to have some mechanical issues that Jeff was unaware of.

Jeff’s Porsche was great! We drove it up to Calistoga for the weekend and had a blast. Working with Jeff was easy, too—he was flexible and happy to help us.
