Description

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 2002 Porsche Boxster S 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 2002 Porsche Boxster S 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 6-speed shifter is absolutely flawless in feel, effort, precision. Second, the 6-cylinder Boxster S engine has such a magnificent sound; music that only a Porsche can make, it seems. With 250 horses providing the urge, the 2002 Porsche Boxster S 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 S 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 2002 Porsche Boxster S. 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 2002 Porsche Boxster S 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: 6 Speed Manual Engine: 3.2 L, 250hp, 225 lb-ft torque Exterior Color: Silver Interior Color: Black 22-28 mpg (not bad for a sports car) Convertible Top - 13 seconds fast. Two trunks (and top doesn't take up space) Low Mileage for its age Excellent All Weather Tires New Top cover installed in 2011 Leather Seats Multi changer CD Player, Bose upgraded with rear subwoofers. Aux Audio input cable Power Windows Anti-Lock Brakes Power Door Locks New Brakes replaced at 109k miles New Clutch replaced at 111k miles New Performance Tires replaced at 113k miles 113k miles as of Aug 2016 Requires 91 octane Premium Unleaded Gas Fastrak is registered to the license plate to make going through Bay Area tolls hassle-free.* *Please arrange payment of tolls reimbursement when your rental has concluded. The car can picked up at the SFO Turo parking lot. There is a shuttle every 15-20 minutes to the Turo parking lot (6am to 10pm). Drop off is easy. Contact me at 650-222-6682, or drop off at the Turo airport lot and catch the next shuttle on to your departure gate! If you would like me to meet you at your gate, depending on my schedule, I can offer to do this with a $40 one way fee. Need a ride to pickup this car?

Free SFO pickup via Turo’s Valet Lot if renting for 2 days or more (free Lyft/Uber pickup from SFO). Please do not pay tolls on a Fastrak lane, or you may be charged double. Tolls will be charged at the end of the trip. Golden Gate Bridge does not have a cash toll booth, so crossing it will cost $7.75. Renter is responsible for all tolls. No vaping, smoking of any kind, or pets - a cleaning fee of $200 will be charged for upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal.

If you want a clean fun ride, drive Jeffs porshe. Car is as described and did not disappoint on the winding SanFran and Petrified Forest roads. Would definitely rent again from Jeff.

Lino C.-Sep 29, 2017

You'd be silly NOT to rent this car if a convertible meets your needs. Jeff was responsive in every message I sent. The car was good to go and drives amazingly.

Chris Z.-Sep 18, 2017

Great fun car for a great price!

Andrew S.-Sep 5, 2017

I arrived to collect Jeff's Porsche, noted its condition, then proceeded on my adventure. The car performed as one would expect: poised, collected, docile, quick. Jeff's communication was stellar! Super quick responsive and very kind when doing so. I traversed with the car, north south, west and far from the city. The woods north of the city proved eventful for the lithe Porsche and the roads were reminiscent of those found in much less dense and distant lands. I'd recommend anyone to take Jeff's car for a spin. It's perfect surely!
